Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

On first glance, this 28-year-old family-owned shop appears to sell nothing more than men’s leather shoes ($98–$350), wallets ($20–$700) and briefcases ($150–$3,500), with only a few shiny pieces of Rimowa luggage ($450–$1,560) displayed on high shelves. But ask for the suitcase section and a sales associate will guide you down a narrow, turquoise-carpeted staircase, where you’ll discover a bevy of baggage options and travel accessories from go-to brands such as Bric’s, Samsonite and Heys. Bold travelers who want to make a statement on the turnstile will adore  punchy Zero Halliburton hard-side rolling cases ($550) and equally vibrant Hartmann International carry-on spinners ($280). More understated types can pick up classic Bric’s medium nylon trolleys ($220) or Eagle Creek two-wheeled bags ($240) that expand up to 15 percent. No matter how much you spend, Hides in Shape will monogram the leather luggage tag on your bag for free. The tri-level boutique is also the only place in New York that repairs Rimowa luggage, a complimentary service for products under warranty that takes one to two days. The shop will also fix bags from other brands for a nominal fee ($10–$30) and have them ready for pickup within a week.
