The Brand New Cornelian Taurus Canvas Fishtail Backpack = Fish Fry Fly.

"A fantastic new backpack has released from Cornelian Taurus, the Japanese accessories brand by Daisuke Iwanaga.

“Made of a strong black canvas with horse leather detailing, this is, of course, not your average backpack. The level of craft put on this is incredible with great work on the arm straps together with beautiful brass on the adjuster rings, two way zippers, press buttons and pullers. Features an amazing fish tail which can be worn closed or hanging. One outside zip pocket at front, two at the sides with press buttons and one zip pocket inside. Fully lined with leather trimmings.”

With so many backpacks in the market and most brands going down the trail/hiking route, we have to admit that this is a refreshing new look, with craftsmanship at its core. Por Vocacao has it in stock now, priced at 650 Euros."

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: As a proud product of these late 1980's and 1990's NYC streets - a gloriously larcenous 10kt slum gold gilded age of boosting boys and girls equipped with homemade aluminum foil lined security alarm disabling "Lizzie" bags and oversized AND overstringed (LOL) JanSport® bookbags - I once felt a great affinity for backpacks; once being the operative word.

Indeed, sometime during the late 1990's, the formerly fearsome form of the "backpacker" was surreptitiously co-opted by Cro-Magnon Hipsters whom, after years of genectic grafting, have evolved (NOTE: Or devolved given your opinion of this race. Yall already know how I feel.) the feckless parasitic Trendoids that we all know and loathe. Almost overnight, the hard fought term "backpacker" was eviscerated by these agents of lame and went from being synonymous with real niggas wielding ice picks to Charmin® Ultra Soft pseudo-intellectual off-beat-rapper-listening niggas with incense and chewsticks. And just like that, the underground Hip Hop scene as I knew it was gone and an entire generation was lost. SMH.

In any event, while my contempt for anti-anything-mainstream-musically-merely-for-the-sake-of-being-a-contrarian ironic backpackers coupled with good ole maturity made me distance myself from bookbags as a whole, I kind of fux with this brand new Cornelian Taurus Canvas Fishtail Backpack. Handcrafted of strong black canvas and horse leather detailing, this luxe knapsack aint nothing to sleep on. Score 1 for the classy crooks! LOL. Good shit!
