Since most of my travel is limited to domestic flights where I check a piece of mediocre luggage (hello, I overpack and will not drag that puffed out piece through security) I do not have the need to own bespoke luggage such as Globetrotter, LV, or Goyard.
Typing those words makes me wish for a time when train cars were boarded with trunks and assorted monogrammed pieces. If Amtrak wasn't so dodgy between major cities I might consider donning a caftan and wafting from platform to platform followed by a uniformed steward pushing a cart piled with my must-haves for the next region... We have a thing for trains in my family, but I have to say these days it doesn't go much past underground commuter railcars and freight.
Since the next best thing to the Orient Express is private jet travel I must highlight the deserving luggage that has earned some time aboard a private people mover via sky, rail, or road. They also make chic side tables...
|Globetrotter, in orange. Monogrammed of course. The Crew and Globetrotter are in cahoots, but I am not sure about the monogramming status of a Crew purchased piece since I have not gotten that far in my "matched amazing luggage" Life Plan. Yet.|
|Do I even need to remark on this? Union Jack interior. Ooooooh. Globetrotter likes to team up with designers to do chic linings.|
|Darjeeling Limited custom luggage a la Louis Vuitton. Quilted interior? Amaze. My things would look so much prettier if they were tucked gently into this piece of incredible usable artistry...|
