Owner Hiro Irie came to New York in the 1960s as an exchange student from Japan and has provided travel gear and luggage to city dwellers since 1974. The spartan store is packed to the brim with carriers from dependable brands such as Victorinox, Halliburton and LeSportsac, and clearly caters to the NYU students in the neighborhood, considering that a massive wall is dedicated to North Face backpacks ($40–$165) and Manhattan Portage messenger bags ($40–$120). If you’ve since outgrown wearing JanSport reversible leopard-print backpacks ($51), more mature options include Eagle Creek four-wheeled uprights ($314) and Baggallini rolling totes ($171) done up in a sophisticated, subtle giraffe print. Mention TONY for 10 percent off all purchases (excludes Deuter, Eagle Creek, Jansport, Kipling, LeSportsac, North Face, Rimowa and Victorinox) through May 31.
