On my first day as a new hire out of undergrad I showed up with a leather tumi alpha and a brigs and Riley carry on. I got a few complements but otherwise they went unnoticed

No don’t. If you are the type who thinks you need to have a Tumi to be respected as a consultant, then start looking for your next career move. I find those who brandish their luggage bags as douchbags who are akin to newbies trying too hard to fit in. Just get a presentable looking bag off Amazon (Samsonite, Travelpro etc.). While you’re at it, get some decent shirts and pants!

I'd just ask you why you didn't get an Airpro. 😂

hmm Tumi vs Rimowa - what do u think?

Who cares? There are people with Hermès

Do you. I prefer Hefty garbage bags. Those puppies will fit in any overhead bin.

Suits you well -- meagerly SA1.

Tumi = 🤮

Lol wtf is this thread

My entire team carries back packs... ie no one cares what you put your shit in

A lotta you sayin no one gives a shit but the sheer hatred towards the topic and the loathe that’s coming from it makes me realize that people DO actually care a lot about what luggage you carry! 😲

I reserve my righteous indignation for people that are insecure about buying luxury items. These items are sold for the express purpose of communicating wealth or status, and you're saying you're worried about it doing that exact thing. If you are that self conscious, get something sturdy and functional (B&R, Travelpro). Spend the leftover on a nice suit or shoes. Until I started consulting, I had never even heard of Tumi.
