Luggage designer Timothy Oulton is back with a chic, new luggage line inspired by Raleigh Spitfire fighter jets. These sleek, metallic hardcases have a Frankenstein-like appearance, since different sheets of metal were bonded together in patches to create the bags' exteriors. Locomotively speaking, these metal panels evoke the interlocking metal sheets found on the sides of the F14 fighter jet.

Not only are these hardcases incredible to look at, but they're also fully functional. They come in four different sizes, offering a bag for each occasion, from overnight trips to month-long vacations. The bags' interiors are vintage in style, looking like 1920s-era suitcases. Different pouches and flaps serve to provide ample room for different objects, giving the traveller all the space they need to pack their necessities.

With his Raleigh Spitfire hardcases, Timothy Oulton has shown that luggage can showcase a masculine flair while remaining functional and fashionable.
