I highly doubt that there is a state-backed proxy service lol8[1].gif

Unfortunately, I think chances are quite slim for someone to order a bespoke or MTO casework from Japan via email/phone. For Ready Made products, the prospect is much higher, via proxy etc....

Ohba Seiho is among the very few Japan casemakers that have been actively making efforts to expand overseas. They exhibit regularly at Pitti and elsewhere in Europe. I assume they are trying to get some foreign vendors, but I haven`t heard of any stores overseas carrying their products yet.

I've seen them at Pitti the last couple of years I've been. Their minimum order put me off, but beautiful bags.

Could some one please recommend good Japanese bag brands that preferable has ready to order or MTO/Bespoke that doesn't have 1 year+ waiting time. It would also be great if the brand is available in Tokyo.

Went to some various places in Tokyo. Bought a note book cover with pen slit from Manso for around 15000 yen, made in bridle leather. Very nice and affordable stuff.

Also ordered a bag from Ortus. Thought long and hard about other details and what not, but ended up with just having the possibility of a shoulder strap and an extra pocket inside.
Now, 2 years waiting time.



Got some nice ideas for a future project. These were the nicest bags I've ever see.

Is it up to 2 years waiting time now for Ortus? I thought it was one year back in May when he visited the armoury. I could be wrong as i did not get anything. The briefcases were great but 2 years is such a long time.

He may have faster delivery time for the trunk shows at Armoury. I'm fine with two years though.

Yea not sure, it just seems that the waiting period keeps going up exponentially with as time goes by. I suppose if he only does in theory 70/yr and he is doing more trunk shows and more orders, it will only get longer.
Maybe i should have bought something in May, bc i am not sure i would buy something that takes 2+ yrs to deliver.
I do agree though that the briefases he had there were spectacular

6 yrs! Yea thats out of the question. I am a fickle man, so chances are by that time I will be ready to move on to a new bag befoere i even get it. I have never kept using a briefcase regularly for 6 years because I get bored and i am ready to move on. By now i just rotate when ready to change.
Well no trips to tokyo planned anytime so i am stuck until ortus comes back to us next year. By then we will be up to 3 yrs haha
