No-frills luggage company Ghurka recently opened a flagship at the Sherry-Netherland Hotel, and Refinery29 stopped by to take a peek at what kind of travel necessities are up for grabs. While there, they also spotted a sidecar motorcycle, which yes, you can also buy.
The store stocks the brand's sturdy and dependable suitcases, carryalls, and duffels, each constructed without too much fuss and in leather and fabrics that are meant to stand the test of time, airport security, and crowded overhead luggage bins. Creative Director Steven Laguardia also offers some advice on whether a man should carry a man bag or not: "Well, you can cram all that stuff in your pockets and look like an asshole or you can carry a man bag."
