JPLC #rolltote on the runway. Really like this shot of my friend Stella rocking the Rollie.
The sourcing of our materials or “ingredients” took a lot of work pre launch and we are still working with the same items as well as few new ones #horweenleather #horween #ykkusa #britishmillerain #waxedcanvas #milspec #webbing #brasshardware #jpantherluggage #jpanther #chromexcelleather
Just put my personal well used 2010 #lifetote and 2 #ructote through a regular domestic wash now drying in the sun. They take a battering but do look good and surprisingly the leather holds up even better than the canvas. Not sure if it’s something I’d advise or recommend to customers but was a fun experiment.
Just pulled from my storage #yamanedeluxe #silkdenimcotton #evisujapan purchased from the Shibuya store 2006. I worked at Evisu in design for many years and learnt a lot about product design from the enigmatic and hugely talented founder/boss Mr Yamane. His attention to details and quality was second to none. A big influence on our products.
I frequently get (very satisfying) emails from customers who have now owned their JPLC items for many years, use daily and ask us about leather care. Horween of Chicago where our leather is from recommend and indeed use this cream and the below are their words. “ Venetian Shoe Cream has been made in Chicago since 1907. We use a small amount of this Neutral shoe conditioner on our leather before glazing to nourish the leather and add shine. This product is easy to control and a little goes a long way. This high quality cream is well suited to a variety of leather types, including Essex, Chromexcel, and Shell Cordovan.”
Came across these a moment ago, from a previous visit to #horweenleather where I was developing the skins for a production run. Every time I go I never tire of the tour to see the wonderful old skool way these guys still work. images show final checking of the sublime #cordovan leather, with some raw hides images and my own skins waiting for my checking!
Great to have direct communication with my customers and receive pics and words like this from Germany! Thanks Hauke “The bag arrived … and it is awesome! Worth every penny - including custom duty. Thanks again for the two special gifts.”

great to be back in Italy after many years and to be shown the archive/studio of the late great Massimo Osti by his very fine son Lorenzo. His father being the creator of Stone Island, CP Company and other brands. The green poncho is apparently the very first item of Stone. Looking forward to working in the studio for winter 19 collections 🤞. Many memories of selling all his brands as a teenager in the 80’s in a London store called Woodhouse

Offer lasts through to 2018. Our new small things; Sunnies & EyeGlass Case and Coin & HeadPhone Purse were made using Chromexcel strip, offcuts of the beautiful high end Cordovan leather from Horween and were made at the wonderful KnickerBocker Manufacturing Co in Brooklyn New York.

Nice post-RePost of Lauren from @ponytailjournal still getting good use out of our RucTote and making it look so nice with her friends here from @aroommodel 👍💪
A snap at our factory in CT. The wooden looking panels are our Courier Ruc Case “cutting dies” working there with our normal Horween full grain analine leather
a great shot of the internals of our Aviator bag by my talented friend @willandersonphoto , we made many prototypes and development to really get the internals and function/ design working from an aesthetic as well as practical point of view and apparently (according to the makers in CT) it was the most “engineered” item they’d ever made. So much so they refused to make it anymore 😂
a swipe through of some key looks at the JPLC/AK-CLUB bi annual fashion show in Shanghai for SS18 Shanghai Fashion Week. I used a lot of my own vintage army bags as props but designed new ones along with all the clothing concept and design. Many interesting events were taking place this time during SFW including a C.F:D.A. guest event and an excellent local event called LabelHood, where it was great to see the new younger generation of Chinese fashionistas dress so stylishly & fearlessly!
Flick through if you have a mo.....Opened last year and finally looking healthy our AKCLUB/JPLC concept-house, archive museum, clubhouse, design HQ, meeting and event location. It's in a lovely part of Shanghai's former French Concession on Changle Lu in an old European style 4 story house. AKCLUB is retail only and sells solely in China currently so our Instagram presence is limited as different local social media networks are used in China. Most of the JPLC range is carried throughout. We will be having our runway show Oct 17 during Shanghai Fashion Week.
Yours truly shot by the highly talented @raymondpatrickglobal for #condenastraveller for a feature on a New York day. I was sporting our sand #ructote and we were in #tribeca some years back, a lot of fun
Nice shot of our #aviatorbag by our friends at #offthecuff and to quote them in their post as luddite here at jplc seems to lose the caption when he reposts ...is such a unique and functional day bag that we look for reasons to put it to use, part document case, part day bag, part folio 🙏
