What's with all of this ballistic nylon crapola.? Don't you guys have any recs for class luggage.? Something to go with your carefully chosen, class clothes. Something to give to the porter at the Ritz or the Hotel du Cap or the Orient Express. You've got to put the whole package together. I mean, walking in with bullet proof, practical, synthetic luggage is sort of like strolling through Savile Row in your comfortable Nikes, isn't it?   Now, would you really expect  see Fred or Cary really roll in luggage?.  C'mon, now.
Good man. Now you're talking. How about some Globetrotter luggage. Maybe they have a site. They've got a store in Burlington Arcade.

Right on LA guy, you make my point perfectly. Banged up, have had it for years, it means something to you; you've kept and not traded it in for one that works better;  it's got a provenance.   Like luggage should be.   That's why people buy fine leather luggage, even those of us who travel alot, btw.   Would you buy a ballistic nylon bill fold? I'll bet it'll last you 10 years and comes with a guarantee.   But I'm talking about something else. It's not a show piece, it's not for others, it's not practical and it can be expensive.   But it is quality.
There was an article abou this very subject in the NY Times magazine about 4 months ago.

I would be interested in seeing how well the Taiga leather 22" roller worked out, but I'll pass for $2240, too many other things to buy (like wine storage)
Time to dig a cave, if you have the means.

Unfortunately that's not optimal in an area known for earthquakes... generally we're relegated to artificial cooling here
