Realising that I had a world trip ahead of me I decided that I needed some grown up luggage for the trip that was to take in Australia (for pleasure) onto Singapore and Japan (for work).
I headed to Globetrotter in Burlington Arcade where I chose three suitcases from the Expedition range made to celebrate Sir Edmond Hilary's conquest of Mount Everest in 1953 (although the only heights I would be scaling would be the eight floors of Isetan in Tokyo the largest Men's store in the world, by escalator naturally).
