My tried and tested garment bag is rapidly falling apart. I need a new one, but cannot find one I like.
I almost always travel with a garment bag. It’s actually rare these days that I wear a suit for meetings, but my current garment bag, pictured below, is perfect for my baggage needs.
First, it keeps 1-2 outfits nicely pressed. Second, the two side storage pockets are perfect for my valuables and other essential items. I keep my laptop and charging cables on one side with any paperwork and my toiletries with one change of clothes on the other side. That way, if I ever have to check my rollerboard carry-on I don’t have to worry about my short-term needs if it somehow gets lost. And it always fits under my seat, if necessary.
Cutter & Buck makes “upscale” golf clothing and other sports apparel. I don’t golf and I don’t wear Cutter & Buck clothes, but received this garment bag about a decade ago from a former family friend and have used it ever since.
But it is showing its age. One of the zippers used to open and close the main garment compartment has broken. About a year ago, one of the two side pocket zippers broke, rendering the bag unusable. I paid $25 to have the zipper fixed, but it just broke again.
Thus, it is time for a new a bag. I’d love the same bag, without the logo (or with my own logo…), but I cannot find something like it anywhere. I need zippered pockets on both sides, not just one side.
But I suppose I am open to a wholly new garment bag. I wish Rimowa made one…I love my Rimowa rollerboard and would welcome a matching garment bag.
I would like something pretty, but most importantly is must be practical.
Thoughts? Any recommendations?
