  1. Black luggage is just Stupid. I remember my first luggage set. My parents got it when they got married back in 1957 yes that old . I was solid. I took it with me camping . I used it as a base to light fireworks. My dad stored booze and in there to bring home . Nothing ever broke in that thing. Then when my parents went to Bermuda they bought American Tourister hard case YELLOW Luggage….. had that from 1976 to 2007. That was also great. My brother brought home Rum from his Honeymoon in it (it did not break) There were NO wheels on these.

    It was not until 2007 when we purchased samonite BLUE luggage with wheels O HAPPY DAYS…….

    Notice a trend here can spot the luggage coming off the belt very easy NO black NO Ribbons.
