Travel has changed tremendously. Sky rocketing gas prices, extensive security check points, long lines and expensive fares make air travel less and less desirable each year. Gone are the days when getting to your destination was just as exciting as arriving there. And unless someone is hopping a short flight for a quick business meeting, most passengers forsake style for comfort. But now there is a way to take a little get-away every day and look cute while doing it.
Pan Am Brands now offers vintage-inspired Pan Am travel bags with their classic blue and white logo design. Travel, laptop and even gym bags are available to retro up your day and add some vacation dreaming to your wardrobe. And if you want to spot your suitcase quickly at baggage claim, check out their luggage line - this decade’s version is complete with wheels. I can’t make up my mind which bag is my favorite (I’m leaning toward this “Originals” hat-bag), but to carry a mini, messenger or even a diaper bag with this unique bit of kitsch is sure to get you noticed. Bon voyage!
