Not much is certain in this life. One thing that is—and happily—is that there's nothing that makes you look better, and that covers all manner of other style sins, than carrying a leather travel bag, supple loops in hand, while you walk through an airport, no doubt on your way to or from some exotic destination that hasn't even gained traction on Instagram yet. It's the best possible thing that can happen to you at an airport. The paparazzi will assume you're a celebrity they don't know about yet. You'll be on TMZ with some kind of vulgar headline. Before you know it, you'll be getting paid to carry around more leather bags in airports, and you'll be laughing your way to the bank as the rest of the populous wonders to themselves and each other, "what the hell does that guy actually do?" And, bonus: it holds all your things. 

All of which is to say, here are a dozen fine leather travel bags in a wide range of colors, textures and costs. Own one...
