I’ve raved about the exquisite ties and pocket linen from General Knot & Co. here and on social media, but I’ve never mentioned their travel kits. As with everything from General Knot, the dopp kits are all limited edition with the shells made from vintage fabrics. Once a particular pattern/fabric is sold out, it’s gone, making these kits (and their neckwear and hankies) truly unique.

Under the hood, they’re made with U.S. sourced heavy-grade water-resistant canvas lining and taped seams. Closed with a brass YKK zipper, the bags are finished with a tough buffalo leather handle and zipper pull. And I’m so thankful they didn’t try to re-invent the classic dopp kit design. These bags are perfect.

All goods from General Knot & Co. are made with taste right here in the U.S.A. The standard price for the kits is $88, while several of them are on sale for much less. Considering their uniqueness and their last-a-lifetime craftsmanship, these are a great value.

Here are a few of my favorites:
