Despite the fact that plenty of people do it and plenty of brands want you to give it a shot, traveling with expensive luggage or carry-on bags makes me nervous. The airport is…just so disgusting. It makes me want to hand-sanitize my entire body, and as difficult as that might be, it’s even less possible when it comes to your bags. So far, the best compromise I’ve come up with for traveling in style is with a vintage bag, like this Louis Vuitton Vintage Epi Leather Travel Bag. [UPDATE: Our commenters have identified the bag as a Louis Vuitton Taiga Kendall!]

This bag and others like it at East Dane (ShopBop’s new menswear offshoot) come from New York’s What Goes Around, Comes Around, one of the US’s best outposts for high-end vintage fashion. WGACA sells its wares both in its own stores and online, and it offers a small selection of leather goods and jewelry to both ShopBop and East Dane.

This hunter green bag (it’s termed a Keepall on the product page, but its not the right structure for that) is perhaps my favorite of the current offerings. The color is more interesting than the basic black that characterizes most travel options, but it’ll still be durable, particularly when combined with Vuitton’s hardy Epi leather. The best part, though, is that it’s a pre-owned bag, so you don’t have to watch it become progressively less pristine with each trip. As far as its next owner is concerned, it started out that way. Buy through East Dane for $2,400.

Exactly asmith! First generation taiga no less when the only colours this overnight bag came in was rouge or vert. I bought this for my younger brother to stop him pinching my Bisten whenever he wanted to travel. I fell quite aged now if this is considered vintage!
