Thought some of you might appreciate this listing. If you are in the market for one.

Easiest decision: Filson. Ubiquitous. Easy to find. Easy to sell. Massive thread on Styleforum. One more thing: warranty. Filson is customer-focused and has a generous replacement policy. Many people in the market for a canvas bag gravitate towards Filson because the buying decision is so much easier, with a well-backed warranty.

A lot of fishing and photographic bags in this list, especially from the UK. Usually cushioned, much more than the Japanese counterparts. Also likely to be more expensive, like for like models and sizes.

Inujirushi and Ichizawa are already very popular stores. For some extra cash, Inujirushi will stitch monograms, either in English or Kanji characters. Do take note that many of these made-in-japan canvas makers put in very thin lining. They will not protect your laptops and tablets if you have a tendency to drop your bags on the floor. So you might end up having to buy a separate sleeve for your laptop or tablet. Some of the canvas are also quite stiff. While tough-wearing, they will wear you out first. Inujirushi also has some collections where other fabrics like Harris Tweed and kimono feature.

 

There are some truly amazing products that are being sold on the domestic market in Japan. Products from apparently mass market brands like Outdoor and Eastpak as well as some lesser known US/Europe brands. Will try to take some pictures when I am out and about next trip to Japan.

In the UK there is a long tradition for canvas bags for fishing and hunting. Brady is amazingly high quality and a different league to Filson and the Anerican brands. The type of cotton-rubber hybrid canvas used by the British makers is very, very special, very, very highly evolved for the purpose. Worlds apart from the "duck" canvas the Americans use or whatever impregnated cotton.

Omg stalker! It's coming along nicely. Shoulder drop issues. Hope that gets fixed when I receive the jacket in January.

 

The canvas tote is amazing.

What a coincidence. I just chanced upon on my recent trip to Osaka (they're right across United Arrows) and placed a jacket order with them out of curiosity. There're 4 people there, all are lovely non-English speakers. The young man is Taiwanese, so he acts as a translator of sorts.

 

I promised to return in max 6 months for a fitting,

 

 

 

 

Wait what... you mentioned back in May that you are having a jacket order. Since I was the one who first mentioned about t-katsura here, I remembered about this particular reply of yours.

I have 3 ichizawa totes (+1 more from its predecessor during the family feud days). When new, they are stiff and holds the shape well. Probably because of the water resistant wax or starching. Can't speak Japanese so I never did find out what was used. With use, they become very soft. The colour does hold with slight fading at the wear areas. The hardware on them will tarnish but does not rust.

In general, I do find them to be value buys compared to the western counterpart even at the old exchange rates. The western canvas bags usually use thicker canvas though.

Along the same street as the ichizawa store, there is now another canvas bag store. Products are fairly similar. Not sure if it's related to the family feud.

Nice contribution, badeggcat! Yes the 2 stores are related. I need to find out more about the history. 

 

A few words on 日乃本帆布×牛や By SANKODO (Yonezawa) http://gyuya.co.jp. They do have an outlet at Asakusa EKIMISE top floor. http://www.ekimise.j...s/pc/index.php. If you are touring Asakusa, go to Inujirushi Kaban Seisakusho 犬印鞄製作所 雷門通り店 first and then to EKIMISE to see Gyuya. Few tourists know about Gyuya. The assistant showed me the waterproofing capability of the canvas as well as an example of a 10-year-old bag from Gyuya - aged but not battered.

I had the chance of comparing Filson vs Duluth. Buying Duluth is of course a turned-up nose at the ubiquity of Filson. In my rather biased opinion, it is best to avoid Duluth with the fabric hemmed edges such as these:

Chances are that they will be the first to look tired and fray. If this does not bother you, then Duluth is probably well worth its asking price. Very sturdy looking. The fasteners seem of good quality. The logo is however rather large.
