Not all dop kits have to be for toiletries. Despite its traditional looks, the Incase Travel Dop Kit ($35) is made for something else: your iPhone or iPod. Made from durable nylon, the Kit features an exterior zipper pocket, and interior faux-fur lined pocket with Velcro closure, interior mesh pockets for cables, chargers, and the like, Topo print lining, YKK zipper pulls, and a breakaway key ring.
Leave it to legendary shoemakers to come up with timeless-looking luggage. The Johnston & Murphy 1850 Luggage Collection ($295-$395) includes a duffle bag, vertical and horizontal messenger bags, and a dowel rod carry-on, all of which feature water- and stain-resistant cotton canvas outers, full-grain leather straps, antiqued brass hardware and rivets, and rugged lining. Modern style meets old-world craftsmanship.
