Billy Reid’s Bond peacoat in Skyfall

We’ve been rounding up the items from James Bond’s latest wardrobe: the Tom Ford suit, the Crockett & Jones shoes, the Globe-Trotter case. But while a tuxedo or a bespoke rifle case may not be a staple of the average male wardrobe, a navy blue peacoat is. It’s one of those classic items that’ll get you through one winter and the next… and the next.…

James Bond carries a bespoke Globe-Trotter rifle case, and so can you

Globe-Trotter are synonymous with craftsmanship and the nostalgic magic of travel. So if James Bond needed a custom-made rifle case that was both sturdy and stylish you’d imagine that’s where he’d be headed. And so, that’s where the costume department of SKYFALL headed. In the film, Bond carries a bespoke carry case produced especially by Globe-Trotter – who worked closely with the film’s armorer to…

Making of a Mulberry Del Rey: weekend watch

With so many copies and fakes being produced, how do brands prove their points of differentiation? One way is to raise awareness of their levels of craftsmanship. It’s not as detailed as the making of a Globe-Trotter suitcase video we saw last week, but this video shows how a Mulberry “Del Rey” bag (yes, inspired by Lana) is put together from start to finish.

True craftsmanship at Globe-Trotter: weekend watch

Our time gives us plenty of opportunity to lament that true craftsmanship is dead. But occasionally it’s nice to get a reminder that it’s not dead, just happening behind the scenes and under the mountains of otherwise mass produced product. Globe-Trotter luggage’s video about the making of a suitcase in their factory in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, is one of those reminders. Watch the video after the…

Globe-trotter centenary suitcase: daily discovery

Having a suitcase that fits your style is a key part of a travel experience. I love a sturdy, vintage-inspired piece of luggage – like Globe-Trotter’s Centenary collection. Step onto the tarmac with this and you’ll suddenly be transported to the centre of a Poirot mystery in exotic Egypt circa 1937. Or so I imagine, anyway. I’m 100% in love with the ivory colour. Made…

Alstermo Bruk Atlas cases

Giving the gift of travel is never an easy task. Booking the whole experience requires you avoid picking dates that may be a problem for the recipient, while giving a simple voucher always seems impersonal. The perfect pieces of luggage, however, are a safer bet when it comes to giving the gift of travel, whether that is a Christmas gift or for another occasion. Heralding…

Globe-Trotter: refined luggage

Whenever I travel this globe there’s one mistake I always make: I buy too much. Luggage. That’s right, all those times I’ve back my bag to within grams of getting kicked off a flight (my personal record is 42kg over the permitted weight allowance) have always been preceded by the purchasing of new luggage. I simply can’t help it. Each and every time I travel…
