Fashion Math: Is A Goyard Overnight Bag Worth The Hefty Price?

In the coming weeks, you’ll probably be heading over the river and through the woods to visit relatives near and far. You can expect lots of great food, but also lots of packing for all your travels, which means a dependable suitcase is essential. This Goyard overnight bag was handmade in Paris (the same way the original bags were crafted in the 1800s) and is super sturdy and lightweight-basically everything you need in a suitcase. A pre-owned one retails for about $1,175, though, which is a whole lot of cash. Put it to good use and it will be totally worth it.

If you resolve to carry this bag every year you visit your family on Christmas and Thanksgiving, on all your monthly business trips and the two vacations you take every year for the next 25 years, this Goyard suitcase will cost you $2.93 each time you use it. That’s less than you pay for most of the magazines you read each month!  After carrying it once, you may find yourself booking even more trips as an excuse to break it out of the closet.

Check out more overnight bags, carry-on bags and stylish laptop cases in the buying guides.
