Nothing sucks more than getting off a wickedly long flight and realizing that your luggage is never going to make its way around that sad turnstile. Unless, of course, your bags are full of priceless family heirlooms and your last name just happens to be Gucci. Giorgio Gucci, who traveled from Spain to Philadelphia to appear before Congress yesterday, had to purchase a $450 JoS. A Bank suit for the visit, as his suitcase—full of family photos for an upcoming documentary, $50,000 of Gucci bags and custom-made clothing—was misplaced by US Airways. Sounds like someone could hit the eBay jackpot on this one. [NY Post]
