Advice on how to make first Tumi purchase? Full-set? Discount retailers (Nordstrom rack, etc.)? Holiday sales? I assume PwC doesn't have a corporate discount, so any help is appreciated!

Don't ask KPMG, they only buy from Old Navy and Lands End

I went into the shop and browsed around. Make sure you are 100% satisfied with almost everything about the luggage. Think long term too. Don't buy a luggage that's trendy and then five years down the road, you hate it. Because TUMI products are definitely investments. It'll be the best purchase of your life and you'll look gosh darn sophisticated when you are rolling around the airport.

Stop by tumi in Columbus Circle if you're in NYC, they pulled out a recently discontinued bag for me, 45% off and looked very close to the current model

Go to Tumi store and get it especially when it comes with lifetime warranty. Don't try to sneak a deal. If you are so concerned about $$ then get a dupe from NY street vendors.

Agreed! Yeah, maybe check multiple stores, the outlets, nordstrom rack/tj's and department stores, and scan selection online. Sounds crazy, but there is a ton of variety (you'd be very surprised) so it is good to know all of your options. They literally have different seasons of suitcases so there are a lot more options than whatever you local small tumi shop has in stock. Good luck-excited for you!

OP - I used to be Tumi and almost exclusively have B&R now with some exceptions. My main carry-on, mid-size checked and daily laptop rolliebag are B&R. Its cheaper and on par with quality. I also hear the warranty's much easier with B&R nowadays. I feel it's a superior offering.

M1, thanks for the input. Not too considered about $$ given my interest in Tumi... I just want to do it right, rather than blow +1K on luggage without any thought.

Just want some advice.... Chilllllllll

Thanks everyone! Quick question - thoughts on B&R?

Wow! Based in Chicago but go to NYC often. Thanks!

I took a positive pregnancy test this morning (yay!) after a four-day vacation that involved way more than my fair share of drinking. I’d taken a pregnancy test the day I left for vacation and it was negative. While I am so excited about the positive test, especially after miscarrying several months ago, I can’t help but feel totally guilty and worried I may have affected the baby. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!
