J Smith Esquire × Gladstn

A collaboration with luxury luggage brand Gladstn London. We created a unique alternative to the traditional hat box, a carry-on piece of luggage, large enough for your wide brimmed hat and small enough to take on your flight for a trip away, around town or a special occasion.
