Shakespeare may have gone on and on about the significance/insignificance of a name...

And we wouldn't chosen the moniker "Wisecracker" for a luxury collection of haulers...but get past the name, folks.

This is a very clean, well made, top materials luggage label-with four collections...all with handsome and practical features for modern travelers who don't need gear to climb the seven summits...

Front-JIT Messenger-"Havana" oversized alligator embossed calf-Adjustable/detachable shoulder strap, padded laptop compartment, large interior pouch pocket with magnetic closure

Gitanes Tote Limestone alligator embossed calf/"Sirocco" Limota Micro Twill Nylon

But need understated (fyi, very eye-catching), AND functional rolling suitcases, padded totes/briefcases/messenger/garment bags and satchels, pet carriers, and personal accessories like shaving kits.
Stylish lining!

Founders Jim Neely and David Dow inspired by the journeys --- as well as the destinations

The materials---top of the line Italian leathers...embossed leathers...some limited editions in terrific colors like Vintage Turquoise (our fav)...
