British heritage brand Herring Shoes may be better known for their fine footwear, but their latest range of men’s luggage shows their eye for dressing the sophisticated gent goes beyond classy boots and brogues.

It seems like everyone is trying to find a way to capitalize on the royal couples big day including luggage maker Globe-Trotter. Now I’m sure most of you are about as sick of hearing about the wedding as I am, but when I saw Globe-Trotters special edition luggage, I couldn’t help but write about it. I have always had a …
We recently came across this exclusive collection of fluorescent satchels for Dover Street Market, by the quintessential British brand, the Cambridge Satchel Company. Available in four colours (orange, green, pink and yellow), the distinct satchels feature a large main compartment with one front pocket and a double buckle closure. I am not 100% sure about the colours, but if you …
It feels like half of London is away on hols or just about to. And who can blame us given the ever-changing weather? What won’t change is the need for stylish luggage. You might have your look sorted out but a stylish bag always turns heads at the airport so ensure your carry-on is up to scratch. Some of the best holdall options right now combine canvas and leather (or approximations of) in the style of the classic, Continental weekend bag. Topman’s Premium Jude holdall combines natural 100 % cotton canvas with (yay!) real leather handles and detailing. Roll up a cotton tote bag inside it as a day bag and all your carrying requirements are sorted out.
Seb Law is a grown up business Editor by day, dj by night, and in between finds time to maintain his blog at The Staple and keep us entertained on Twitter. He kindly provided us with his summer picks, which get us in the mood for long days at the park, day trips to the beach and lazy pub garden evenings. Read on to find out what he’ll be wearing this season:
Sometimes online shopping can be as exhausting as a trudge round the real shops (remember them?) So whilst all the coolest backs in town seem have an old-school canvas rucksack slung across them, tracking said item down online is more tricky.

Raf Simons‘ AW colab with Eastpak is one of his most conventional yet but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing worth buying.
As the lovely chap in our Yay or Nay heels debate demonstrated there is a burgeoning trend for men to co-opt traditionally female fashion status markers like heels and bags.
If you, like me, look at your luggage and think “It’s good, but it’s just not white enough” then these beauties by Head Porter are for you. Quilted and whiter than anything I have ever seen this set of luggage, part of the Snow White / Blanc collection, will see you right through the dreary winter months, but for god’s sake don’t put it down these things will soak the dirt out of a tramp.
Now is the best time for a late summer break before autumn really kicks in and Fred Perry’s vintage style bag is just the right size for a quick getaway.
ACL have once again given us another reason to break the credit card out with an interesting round-up of canvas bags from iconic American heritage brands.
Cotton bags are ubiquitous, every man and his dog now has a promotional tote with the most obscure logo and dubious green credentials.
So I am back from a rather long and horribly full-on camping trip and I’ve decided that maybe I need to be a bit less full-on when it comes to fashion. How much longer can we go on with these studs and chunks of waxed crocodile leather- to be honest I am worryingly attracted to Jason’s idea of living in pyjamas for a while.
Whilst perusing Oki-Ni recently, I came across what has instantly became one of my favourite pieces from S/S ’08.
The Guardian had an article up about men
bags – I refuse to call them ‘manbags’ – Although I just did. Damn. They

“I’d again like to apologize to those customers who have suffered disrupted journeys or baggage delays.” Well Mr. Willie Walsh, I have just spent a day imprisoned (okay, voluntarily withheld) in my flat. I have also just finished watching ‘The Ring,’ three bags of salt and vinegar crisps and devoured two diet Cokes. On top of this, I have just left the protection of my covers not only because the Jerry Springer marathon finished but also because I feel obligated to comment on the fact that BA has lost my luggage. Sometimes sorry isn’t just hard to say but hard to take.
Hey colleague Will, you want better looking, more identifiable luggage? What about this big canvas bag from Wood Wood? It’s distinctive, it’s roomy and it’s the last word in hip.
