This Is How True Gentlemen Travel.

This Is How True Gentlemen Travel

Viju Mathew

Part of Chivas Regal’s fourth annual collaboration with British artisans, the Chivas 12 ‘Made for Gentlemen’ by Globe-Trotter steamer trunk takes a page from the golden age of travel—when transportation took days and packing was more expeditionary in nature.

 The British luggage brand outfitted the interior of the premium trunk with a watch compartment that can securely carry eight pieces, shoe storage, ample suit space complemented with leather-covered hangers, and three handcrafted drawers, each trimmed in American white oak—the same wood that is used to age Chivas Regal 12-year-old blended scotch. The pièce de résistance is a built-in, mirrored mini bar. The elegant burgundy exterior is made of vulcanized fiberboard with wood handles, leather straps, and brushed-brass accents.

The $18,600 steamer trunk will be on display at Globe-Trotter’s London flagship store beginning October 5. Proceeds will help the Prince’s Trust, a nonprofit that helps young people in the United Kingdom from 13 to 30 years old who are unemployed or struggling in school.
