No longer are the days of really elegant travel– the closest you’ll come to a voyage on the steamships of yore is probably a Carnival cruise with a few thousand of your closest friends. Commuter trains are ugly and filled with drunken teenagers, and our lungs are grateful for the smoking ban on airplanes, but does everyone on board have to wear velour track suits? Yes, to be sure, there is little of aesthetic value in travel these days. But not everything needs to be ugly– Enter the beauteous craftsmanship of Globe-Trotter luggage. Each case is completely handmade, with classic lines and Vuitton-esque details. The variety of sizing and features practically guarantees, well, practicality. True, you may not be able to take your entire wardrobe along, a la the steamer trunks of old. But then again– maybe some things have changed for the better. Get it here.
