“STRICT-G,” a one-of-a-kind men’s apparel shop that strives to recreate the world of the anime Mobile Suit Gundam (Kidou Senshi Gundam) on their products, has partnered with YOSHIDA & Co.’s original label “PORTER.”

Gundam, distributed by BANDAI Co., Ltd. located in Taito, Tokyo, has long held a “cult” status in Japan. The collaboration items that countless number of fans has been waiting for will finally go on sale on Dec 22nd (Sat), 2012. Available for pre-order at store and by call.

The sturdy, stylish, and purely-made-in-Japan bags of PORTER are no less in need of deeply rooted popularity. “Char’s Zaku” depicted in Mobile Suit Gundam was incorporated into the collaborated wine-red PORTER bags. To express the anime’s military feel, the designs of United States Air Force flight jacket “MA-1” were used as motifs. Gundam’s fan or not, anyone will be surprised by the details that the makers did not compromise. The lightness and the soft touch of the bonded material also adds to its attractiveness. The emblems of Principality of Zeon Forces are skillfully stitched with the same color to avoid making an overstatement. The modest details may be its strongest feature.

The 5 collaboration items consist of 3 way briefcases, waist bags, vertical and horizontal bi-fold wallets, and multi-functional pouches.

STRICT-G is the perfect example of a high quality men′s apparel brand leading the “Cool Japan” trend. It opened two stores in April 2012, the Gundam Front Tokyo Store and the NEOPASA Shizuoka Store. It has also succeeded in collaborating with Onitsuka Tiger in November 2012.
