I was even able to re-monogram the tags on my luggage from college with my new last name after I got married. These bags have been on planes, trains, and cars - and I still get compliments on how good-looking they are.
I started my sister on the obsession with this bag. It's a perfect carry-on size for the airport and fits in most overhead bins. I see her with it every trip!
This is the bag I got for Jeff. It was a nice upgrade from the black patchwork leather duffel he was carrying (blech). I had it monogrammed with just Upchurch as well so our son can use it, too!
The latest addition to my collection this year was this "off broadway" tote. I actually use it as a bag for my laptop and traveling for work. It's good-looking enough that I am not embarassed to be carrying it if I stop in somewhere to shop. But it's not your normal "briefcase bag." It does not have tons of inner padded pockets and dividers, but I find that sometimes a bag can have so many dividers that sometimes you can not actually fit very much in it. This one is just a standard tote - (it has an outer and inner pocket) but I can fit tons of stuff inside it including my large laptop. I have it in black - it's sleek and very hard-working!
