For the Writer

At­taché case by Et­tinger and dou­ble gus­set brief­case by Purdey, both from the Jimmy Beau­mont Be­spoke Travel Col­lec­tion In­spired by ac­tor and author David Niven, this be­spoke at­taché case was made en­tirely by hand by an Et­tinger craftsman, us­ing tra­di­tional English bri­dle leather on the ex­te­rior and long grain skiver on the in­side. The at­taché is based on a 1930s orig­i­nal and adapted for mod­ern-day use with the ad­di­tion of an iPad pocket on the lid. It could eas­ily have been used by David Niven to carry around his pa­pers when the ac­tor was writ­ing his hugely suc­cess­ful books. Founded in 1934, Et­tinger is one of the finest lux­ury leather goods man­u­fac­tur­ers in Great Bri­tain and the only leather goods provider with a Royal War­rant to HRH The Prince of Wales.

A spe­cial brief­case en­tirely hand­made in Eng­land by Neil MacGre­gor for Purdey, from the orig­i­nal and now leg­endary 1786 “Rus­sia leather” skins pulled from the ship­wreck off the coast of Corn­wall, this Purdey ex­clu­sive brief­case could have been used by Hem­ing­way to carry his works around the world whilst he in­dulged in coun­try pur­suits. James Purdey & Sons, or sim­ply Purdey, is a fa­mous Bri­tish gun maker of Lon­don, founded in 1814, spe­cial­is­ing in high-end sport­ing shot­guns and ri­fles. the­beau­mont.com

For the World Trav­eller

Globe-Trot­ter x New & Ling­wood trunk A beau­ti­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Jermyn Street out­fit­ters New & Ling­wood and

Globe-Trot­ter has re­sulted in th­ese stun­ningly beau­ti­ful be­spoke trunks. Cus­tomers who want a be­spoke trunk can visit New & Ling­wood’s flag­ship store on Jermyn Street to make their or­ders and be taken through the process by a mem­ber of staff specif­i­cally trained to as­sist in be­spoke or­ders of this kind. From silk lin­ing to fix­tures the cus­tomer will have a wide range of choice to or­der their per­fect trunk, unique to them. (A be­spoke or­der can­not be made on­line, how­ever, a ready­made, silk lined trunk can be pur­chased via the web­site.). The fi­nal case (be­spoke or ready-made) can then be mono­grammed with the cus­tomer’s ini­tials.

The choice of silks is in­fi­nite as cus­tomers can choose to com­mis­sion their own de­signs, which can of course also be used for gowns, slip­pers, ties as well as lux­u­ri­ant trunk lin­ings. All silks are wo­ven in Eng­land. Cus­tomers can also pick from a se­ries of silks al­ready de­signed and ex­clu­sive to New & Ling­wood. There are 12 colours of Globe-Trot­ter’s renowned vul­can­ised fi­bre­board from clas­sic black and navy, tan and rac­ing green to red, vi­o­let and a few more. There are two me­tal fin­ishes – pol­ished brass and chrome. Leather straps come in 10 colours – for the straps, cor­ners and han­dles. newan­dling­wood.com

24-Hour, 36-Hour and 48-Hour Mis­sion bags from Aspinal of Lon­don

There’s a rea­son the new Aspinal of Lon­don Aero­drome Col­lec­tion by

David Gandy has that en­vi­able du­al­ity of be­ing stylish and yet rugged enough that it won’t look out of place in a jun­gle trek. It’s in­spired by the knight of the skies – the leg­endary Spit­fire. The 18-piece col­lec­tion, a col­lab­o­ra­tion with model David Gandy, cov­ers ev­ery­thing a man may need for trav­el­ling – from pass­port cases to rugged carry-on bags and brief­cases. The bags are made from oiled calf­skin leather in rugged dark brown or tan com­bined with light­weight khaki and can­vas, which give them a stylish, vaguely mil­i­tary feel in keep­ing with the in­spi­ra­tion.

We es­pe­cially love the mis­sion bags, which comes in the 24-Hour, 36-Hour and 48-Hour sizes. Handy and light­weight – and good-look­ing, let’s not for­get – they’re roomy enough to stash a week’s worth of clothes and gadgets. Per­fect for trav­el­ling light. as­pinaloflon­don.com
