Silver Luggage v. Black Luggage

Written by Mr. WellCultured, Thursday, June 3rd, 2010 in Q&As

I just got some new luggage ([redacted]) and wanted something besides black. The color I chose was platinum and now [I’m] having second thoughts, that maybe [it was] too feminine. Should I just exchange [it] for black?

Note: I have reason to believe this was actually a really halfassed way of trying to get me to name drop a brand of luggage. I get these every so often (“talk about my brand!!!!”), but I’m just going to take it and discuss luggage.

Silver luggage is inherently not feminine, and actually may be a fairly good choice: as a general rule, most people at airports and bus stops have black luggage (or variations of black luggage), making finding your own luggage rather hard. Having something that stands out from a distance is invaluable, pending the color is not too garish or ridiculous.

Alternatively, if you do purchase black luggage, what I advise to do is to customize it somehow in a very noticeable way. For example, take a bandanna or strip of cloth and tie it around the handle, or otherwise mark the luggage in a way that you can identify from a distance. Little ownership tags are always useful and should be used as much as possible, but they really don’t cut it — everyone has those too.
