If you're planning on enjoying a luxury vacation soon you're probably going to want some luggage to match. Tumi is one of the leading brands in travel accessories, bringing you everything from casual tote bags to oversized wheeled luggage. With their new Alpha Personalization program, which debuts in September 2012, they will be offering luggage that each owner can uniquely personalize through the use of colored initials and strips. Tumi's classy approach to individualized luggage allows you to keep the sleek look of black leather, if you so wish, while still being able to immediately spot your bag at baggage claim.
Alpha Personalization will be offering two of the company's best-selling luggage styles, a 20" Wheeled Carry On and a Soft Travel Satchel, with a choice between black FXT Ballistic Nylon or black leather. Once the style of bag is chosen, the company says that "customers can select from a variety of color combinations, lettering and numbering designs that represent favorite sport teams, universities, corporate identities, or simply your initials."
The stitched leather letters or numbers can be either black leather, tan leather, black lizard, or brown lizard. While the colors for the lettering are limited, customers can pick from a variety of 15 colors for the striped leather bars that rest below. The carry-on bag features exterior expansion just in case you need a little extra room, Tumi's signature "U" zip-front pocket and removale garment sleeve within, four zipper pockets, and a passport pocket.
The Wheeled Carry-On in ballistic nylon will cost $795, with the black leather costing $1,095, and the Soft Travel Satchel in ballistic nylon will be $495, with the black leather version running at $695. The new Alpha program will be available at Tumi stores all over the US and the personalization will take around two weeks to be completed, so make sure to order yours with some time to spare before your trip.
