This tristate chain may read generic with its wood paneling and Top 40 soundtrack, but what it lacks in ambiance it makes up for with its wide variety of merchandise covering every aspect of travel. Fancy leather briefcases ($180–$400) and laptop bags ($100–$400) from brands including Briggs & Riley, Claire Chase and Tumi are ideal for business travelers, while playful Kipling duffel bags ($139), accessorized with matching monkey charms, and Heys rolling luggage ($350), adorned with the New York City skyline, will appeal to informal explorers. We’re smitten with French line Lipault’s carry-ons ($189), which collapse into a clear plastic bag for easy storage. If basic black is your luggage color of choice, bright accessories such as My Bag leopard luggage tags ($8) and Lewis N. Clark neon minipadlock sets ($8) will make your goods easier to find in baggage claim. Mention TONY for 15 percent off all purchases (except Tumi luggage) through September 3.
