Man Bag Monday: Louis Vuitton Vintage Epi Leather Travel Bag

Mens Bags

Louis Vuitton Vintage Epi Travel Bag

Despite the fact that plenty of people do it and plenty of brands want you to give it a shot, traveling with expensive luggage or carry-on bags makes me nervous. The airport is…just so disgusting. It makes me want to hand-sanitize my entire body, and as difficult as that might be, it’s even less possible when it comes to your bags. So far, the best compromise I’ve come up with for traveling in style is with a vintage bag, like this Louis Vuitton Vintage Epi Leather Travel Bag. [UPDATE: Our commenters have identified the bag as a Louis Vuitton Taiga Kendall!]

This bag and others like it at East Dane (ShopBop’s new menswear offshoot) come from New York’s What Goes Around, Comes Around, one of the US’s best outposts for high-end vintage fashion. WGACA sells its wares both in its own stores and online, and it offers a small selection of leather goods and jewelry to both ShopBop and East Dane.

This hunter green bag (it’s termed a Keepall on the product page, but its not the right structure for that) is perhaps my favorite of the current offerings. The color is more interesting than the basic black that characterizes most travel options, but it’ll still be durable, particularly when combined with Vuitton’s hardy Epi leather. The best part, though, is that it’s a pre-owned bag, so you don’t have to watch it become progressively less pristine with each trip. As far as its next owner is concerned, it started out that way.

Louis Vuitton Presents Damier Graphite

Louis Vuitton just sent me an invitation to view the Damier Graphite collection (which is sort of late). Well anyway, thank you so much LV! I appreciate it! I hope they send me invites for runway shows too! I might be forced to crack my piggy bank just to go to Paris! I wish!

Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite Ieoh

Mens Bags

The Ieoh is a messenger bag that is named after the Chinese-born American architect Ieoh Ming Pei who won the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1983 which is considered to be the highest distinction in the field of architecture.

Did you know that the bags from the Damier Graphite collection are all named after architects who won the Pritzker Architecture Prize? Now you know!

The Ieoh offers tons of storage space. It has a double zipper pocket in the front and a large main compartment with zip top closure. It also has a leather shoulder strap with adjustable buckle and link attachments. This bag along with the other Damier Graphite bags has smooth leather trim and polished silver metal hardware which contrasts the color of the bag which makes it very modern and elegant.

The Ieoh measures 13.9″x 11″x 6.3″ and is available for $1,330 at eLuxury and at Louis Vuitton stores near you.

I Choose Black, I Choose Damier Graphite

Mens Bags

Damier Graphite has been released yesterday, August 15 to stores worldwide but actually, not all of the pieces from the collection we’re up for the taking. Some stores only sell few bags and belts while others only have small leather goods and stuff. This means that the Damier Graphite bags and accessories will be slowly introduced to the public few items at a time until the official Fall season arrives (September-October). So while waiting for all of them to come out, here are some cool photos of some of the Graphite pieces. Warning, they’re drool inducing!

Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite Voyage

Mens Bags

We can not go for more than a few weeks with Man Bag Monday without featuring Louis Vuitton. LV’s bag are not only iconic for women but also for men. Louis Vuitton offers a wide variety of canvases and leathers to choose from which makes each item stand apart from the next, even if it is slightly.

When the Damier Graphite collection was introduced in the Fall of 2008, it was evident it would be an instant sensation, especially for men. I love the pairing of grey and black squares which looks both masculine and stylish.


Vlad spotted someone carrying the Louis Vuitton Porte-Documents Voyage GM during NY Fashion Week. The spacious interior with its foamed computer compartment (15″) and interior zip pocket makes this bag functional for students and businessmen alike. The outside sports an easy to access flat pocket for documents or your cell phone. Overall measurements are 16.1″ x 12.2″ x 4.7″.

When I first saw the image of the man with this bag, it was striking. Many times men prefer to have black and simple designs for their briefcases and work bags. This makes sense, but runs the danger of becoming a little bland and boring at times. The Damier Graphite collection is ideal for the man who wants a touch of style without going overboard.

New Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite

Mens Bags

Finally a new Louis Vuitton line that men can get really excited about. I know I am. Vuitton debuts the Damier Graphite line of accessories in the attempt to revive, redo and revisit the traditional, checkered Damier design. Discreet, yet wonderfully masculine, the new canvas spans across classics, such as the Keepall 55, the Grimaud or the Cabas. Adding to the fine range of travel bags, LV reveals the new Roadster, a 24h-sport bag with a wide zippered flap for easy access. Even a Damier Graphite Motorcycle Helmet is available for enthusiasts who insist on sporting the ultimate in chic whilst cruising cross Roma on their Vespas.
