5. THE LUGGAGE
For the travelers. When trips call for more than just one carry-on.
There is plenty of variety here. As with any style selection, you should find what works best for you.
We’re men. We are practicality-oriented and have specific preferences, especially when we travel.
The most practical (and durable) luggage is a wheeled hardcase (like a classic Globe-Trotter, for example). It protects the shape of your merchandise and lightens the burden of carrying.
I don’t know what it is, but I’ve never been a wheeled luggage guy. Maybe it’s because I’m a notoriously light packer (believe it or not), or maybe it’s from hauling so many bails of hay on the farm as a kid, or maybe it’s because I studied psychology… There is something much more optimistic and satisfying about packing only what I need and carrying it with me rather than packing everything I want and dragging it behind me.
Nevertheless, this is about the biggest big I carry. I could pack for 2 weeks in this thing (it’s all about versatility – see here), and any longer than that I would find a laundromat (or a sink).
Thanks, as always, for reading. Some great content coming up.
Yours in style,
