By Gerald Lynch on December 3rd, 2012

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.

Comprised of the Coombe Briefcase, Washbourne Wash Bag, Lucknam Courier, Buckland Small Holdall, Bovey Large Holdall and Rhinefield Leather Care Kit, Herrineg’s usual attention to detail is on show, with the entire range made from high quality soft brown grain leather. We’re particularly taken with the Lucknam Courier bag and its two-tone strap.

Herring Shoes launch luggage collection

By Laura on December 31st, 2011

Classic British shoe maker, Herring recently extended their brand by branching into Luggage. The new luggage range includes everything from wash bags to large weekend holdalls, all finished in a super soft dark brown waxed leather.

In keeping with their heritage, Herring has named each bag after a London landmark. Our favourite is the Dorchester, a weekend-sized holdall with two external zip pockets, sturdy webbing strap handles and a large internal zip pocket. The base is stiffened with brass stud detailing to help preserve the leather. A close second is the Ritz wash bag.

Prices of the Herring Shoes Luggage collection range from £45 to £175.

Globe-Trotter “William & Kate” Luggage Collection

By Laura on May 3rd, 2011

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 weak spot for classic luggage and this collection exemplifies why.
The British luxury company Globe-Trotter has a history of over 100 years of serving the British Royal Family, so I guess in some ways it is fitting that they would release a collection in celebration of the Royal Wedding.

The collection includes seven different hard-shell models in both “William” and “Kate” versions. While the “William” set features a navy and chocolate shell with a striped shirt lining, the “Kate” set features an ivory and navy shell lined with a more feminine print. You can order the set exclusively through Globe-Trotter here.

Thule Crossover Collection – Luggage For The Sports Enthusiast

By Laura on December 13th, 2010

The snowboarding season has just kicked off, and last week I was lucky enough to go on a last minute snowboarding trip to Switzerland. Before I left the nice people over at Thule, sent me the 56 Liter Rolling Duffel to test out.
The bag is part of the Thule Crossover Collection,  which has been specifically designed for boarders and skiers. The Swedish company Thule, is the world leader in travel racking systems. The Crossover Collection marks there entry into luggage, and they have done a fabulous job.

I was very impressed with the number of highly functional features in the Crossover collection, such as the heat-molded, crush-proof SafeZone for goggles or other fragile gear, the durable molded exoskeleton exterior, and the separate spaces for helmets, gloves, clothing, ski boots, footwear, etc.
The bag also has oversized wheels for smooth mobility, and aluminum telescoping handles. Overall I found the Crossover collection to be very well thought out and perfect for transporting your equipment securely, safely and of course in style.

Although the duffel is probably a bit to large to take as carry on, I was able to sneak it on to my flight. However, if you don’t want to take your chances, they do have a rolling carry on bag as well.

The 56 Liter Rolling Duffel is available for $289.99. To check out the rest of the line go here


Raf Simons X Eastpak at Asos

Raf Simons‘ AW colab with Eastpak is one of his most conventional yet but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing worth buying.
The shiny finish looks the best on the duffle bag, which would make a great bag for the weekend or the gym. The creased finish adds a twist to the classic Eastpak shape making a great bag for those who want a bit of fashion with their functionality. The one I’m least sure about is the check with patches, is it just me or does it look a bit Rage Against the Machine fan art?

Everyday Fashion Miracles: Hand-Carrying Bags

By Will Reid on April 1st, 2008

Thumbnail image for t5bag2.jpg“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,’ munched 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 still lost my luggage. Sometimes sorry isn’t just hard to say but hard to take.

Wood Wood Big Bag

By admin on February 29th, 2008

323788rescaledpic390x390Hey 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. 
Wood Wood are the Danish label with the zany prints. They do a great job of being wholesome and a bit street at the same time.
They even have a cap in the same pattern should you want to co-ordinate a look. I wouldn’t recommend it though. As Heidi Klum once said in her nails-on-chalkboard voice on Project Runway “I don’t like so much this matchy-matchy”.
Available from Tres Bien.

WISHLIST: Globetrotter Suitcase

By Will Reid on February 25th, 2008

92064_1_3I just got back from holiday (not trying to rub it in!) and one of the biggest problems I had; apart form the lack of language, skin-peeling shower and being force-fed Sky News 24/7, was that my luggage was almost impossible to recognise from the conveyor belt and at one point even picked up by a suspiciously befuddled old man.  Therefore, I have decided to invest in proper luggage with Joan Collins-style luggage awareness.

I have found this case from Globetrotter that looks set to fit the bill. In navy blue leather and delicious 100% leather, this suitcase is an 18-inch trolley case and great for a short mini-break. Now don’t be expecting to pack for a Summer Holiday fashion extravaganza but to quote form this WISHLIST item’s Browns description- “Be chic as you travel.”

Prepare for the Conveyor-belt laps and see after the jump for a different view of the case.

Hawker bag by Krane

By admin on February 13th, 2008


Those guys at Krane have thought of everything. Their Hawker bag is a piece of luggage designed for travel – small enough for an overhead bin, external zips for your passport, as shoulder strap or rolled leather handles for comfortable carrying. Pure genius.
What’s more, it’s in waxed cotton which is by far the best fabric for bags being hard-wearing and stain resistant. Like Sharon Osbourne’s face it will get better with age.
The bags are new to Context. Get em here.


Jack Spade Waxwear Soft Duffel

By admin on December 14th, 2007

WaxwearduffeljackspadeYou can’t beat Jack Spade for quality man-bags. Made from high quality waxed cotton and trimmed with leather, these bags are made to last. This week-end travel bag has a shoulder strap and handles as well as internal compartments for shoes – it’s a bag that’s just sitting up and begging you to use it.
Waxed cotton is everywhere at the moment – classic Barbour coats, biker jackets and luggage. The beauty of waxed cotton is that its natural but extremely hard wearing. It ages beautifully and when it becomes scuffed and marked, you just need to warm it slightly with an iron (follow manufacturer’s instructions!) and the marks will fade, restoring it (almost) to its former glory.
Get hold of this beauty from the Jack Spade website.
