Geez - check out this from Berluti :
In impermeable Scotchgard calf leather, finished with Berluti’s iconic Venezia patina, the Formula 1000 range is styled on classic 1950s luggage and also features a sturdy weekend bag and a compact and waterproof toilet bag.
only USD 7,714!
muji makes decent looking, cheap weekend bags. They pack away nicely too, which makes them convenient to carry as spare luggage.
is the 29"? a family friend is able to get me a pretty good discount on rimowa stuff, so im looking at the salsa stuff, cant decide bt the carry on or the 29. i guess im just trying to figure out how much i could actually fit into them as opposed to the burton luggage i have already
i think this is the biggest for the topas family.. i efinitely get another this big luggage is luggage its either you get the biggest or just get a knapsack
Edmond, what is that purple Samurai sticker that says something along the lines of "HLAT Old Domestic Car Only". Sammy dude seems to have one too. I got one of these, I am not sure from where. Obviously it is a Samurai thing, but what is the deal?
Edmond's luggage kills everything else at this point, it's Rimowa and it's covered with Superdenim stickers.
whats the liter on that one?
thats a good size mine is 105 liter i think so next case will be something smaller,the 105 liter works quite well as a week case i jammed it full on return from tokyo and was within my 25 kg allowence and i think thats a good gage for a case,no use being able to pack it heavier than your allowed to carry
I don't know about the rest of you but I swear by soft-shell cases. I've traveled for weeks on a single carry-on. If I'm on a business trip, it's suit carrier and carry-on.
Rimowa seems cool, but if you wanna wait by the luggage carousel while I'm already heading towards the cocktail bar, your choice. I've only ever seen dorky japanese guys or asian families carrying those huge bulky things.
I'm kind of digging the APC leather carry-on this season...
also a lot of airline are getting tight on carry on weight,flying back from tokyo last i had my carry on weighed for the first time (limit was 7kg and i was quite over) i actually had to go through the farce of taking stuff out and putting it in my pockets???to allow me to check in then walked away and put it all back in.
the 1 piece at 20kg is also a annoying rule that i got caught out on my last long haul,although you can i believe book in advance a extra piece of luggage for a small fee with virgin which i will do next time i go to tko
Interesting to know, Rimowa opened up a factory in Canada back in November 2008, to manufacture the polycarbonates, so the newer Salsa Airs are made in Canada (like my girlfriends), while my one is made in Germany.
Indeed, Rimowa's been blowing up lately. I work at a luggage shop and over the past year Rimowa has moved up to our #2 brand after Tumi, when a few years ago it was pretty much a niche, mostly special order brand.
can anyone recommend a shop to buy rimowa for less than retail or is that non-existant?
this cheapest place I have found to buy from,good service aswell,not sure what taxes etc for outside of eu.
What is the average price difference between the Rimowa flagship in Beverly Hills (only US location) and the Rimowa flagship in Tokyo?
I am going to Tokyo next week, need new luggage, and don't know whether it's worth it purchasing from Tokyo.
FYI, I'm in Chicago (not Beverly Hills), and there's no Rimowa stores. There's actually only one store here that carries Rimowa (Flight001) and they only have 1 bag in stock right now.
I imagine it will be way more expensive in tokyo as generally euro imported products are very expensive there
any recommendations for a garment bag that can hold a suit, some shirts and ties (maybe shoes)?
Patagonia MLC Burrito
Stroke5, I use a garment bag from Briggs & Riley. Itâ€™s extremely convenient and utilitarian. What I love about BR garment bags is the Outsider handle system that keeps my nicely ironed clothes from wrinkling. You may want to take a look at their collection and see if any travel garment bag catches your fancy.
Just copped...new for $440 (no tax, no shipping).
