Porter x Monocle City Bag

€ 210,00

The Porter x Monocle City Bag is simple, elegant shoulder bag, perhaps a skosh smaller than a sheet of A4 paper. It’s designed to carry just what you need for a day off in the city – a wallet, a notebook and a pen case, something to read – leaving you unencumbered for the rest. Should you need a little more carrying power, the Porter x Monocle City Bag thoughtfully comes with an additional tote bag.

Should you need a little more carrying power, the Porter x Monocle City Bag thoughtfully comes with an additional tote bag.


Porter, a Japanese bag and luggage manufacturer, has a long history of being everyone’s low-key favourite. Beginning as Yoshida Kaban in 1935, Porter became Porter in 1962. By the late 1980s, Porter had become a local favourite in the Japanese market. Now, 90 years after its inception, Porter can boast a true cult status, especially amongst those with a taste for strong, understated design and excellent craftsmanship. While their previous collaborations with design icons like Margaret HowellOff-WhiteMaison KitsuneMissoniM/M Paris, and Apple show a breadth of styles and possibilities, all these designers are unified by their stripped-down approach to design, which belies a feel for excellence. The collection of Porter x Monocle bags continue in this tradition, and the result has now made Porter bags in the Netherlands a glittering possibility.


From fledgling beginnings in London a decade ago, Monocle is now a cosmopolitain enterprise, with a decannual magazine, a 24-hour online radio show, press bureaux in six countries around the globe, and eight brick-and-mortar shops in six cities. Miscellaneous Store is the proud home of Monocle in the Netherlands. As the first retailer of Monocle in Amsterdam, we’re enormously pleased to have brought their range of notebooks, bags, carry cases, and carefully-made homewares to the Netherlands.


The Porter x Monocle City Bag is 230mm tall, 300mm wide, and has an internal volume of approximately 7 litres. The tote bag is 350mm by 420mm. Miscellaneous Store also stocks the larger Porter x Monocle Shoulder Bag and the Porter x Monocle Shorthauler. Made in Japan.

About Monocle

The voice at the heart of Monocle is gentle, but authoritative. Reading its print magazine, or listening to one of its radio bulletins, is like listening to a friend – perhaps one a little bit older and wiser – as they narrate their adventures around the world in search of the best in life. It speaks confidently on a number of topics: business, politics, urban architecture, the state of modern journalism, the pleasures of fine cooking, or the mechanics of a beautiful watch. They’re attentive to the physical and mental pleasures of life. It’s an approach that makes ears prick up.

They’ve certainly found no shortage of willing listeners. More than a decade after their beginnings as a print magazine, Monocle now boasts press bureaux in six cities, its own creative agency, a 24-hour online radio station, a formidable book-publishing partner in Gestalten, cafés in London and Tokyo, and brick-and-mortar stores around the globe. We are honoured to be the first to represent Monocle in Amsterdam through Miscellaneous’ De Clerqstraat store. We share a deep appreciation not just for life, but for a life lived well. Miscellaneous Store will be the primary home of Monocle in the Netherlands, stocking a range of Monocle notebooks, organisers, bags, wallets, and scents.
