Biltmore-Green Luggage

Now that the Concorde has gone the way of the luxury steamship, there’s nothing that courts robbery on an AirTran carousel like a Louis Vuitton suitcase. Safer to go with the workaday, the durable but still stylish. Biltmore-Green stocks sensible luggage from Samsonite to Hartmann, with Tumi and Travelpro in between. Aesthetes and traditionalists will prefer the unparalleled selection of leather brands like Bosca and Kenneth Cole. There’s even initialing while you wait.
