The Gladstone bag, commercially known as a doctor’s bag, dates back to the 19th century. Men in mainstream professions, for that era at least, such as doctors, lawyers, electricians and plumbers primarily used the bag during the war. And it got its alternative name, Doctor’s bag, for obvious reasons.
This light-handed luggage with two hinged compartments was deemed to be a smaller and much more convenient alternative to a suitcase, ideal for overnight train travels. Its single magnetic clutch in the centre made it user-friendly in public spaces, unlike a bulky suitcase. It could be easily stored in limited spaces and was spacious enough to carry tools, papers and a set of extra clothes.
As time passed, the purpose for carrying the Gladstone evolved, which subsequently altered the shape of the bag. Smaller suitcases replaced the Gladstone’s rigid shape, however doctor’s continued to carry its more compact version.
As this efficient trimming took place, the fashion industry got its cue and tailored the doctor’s bag to adhere with luxurious fashion’s standards. From high-quality leather, silk trimmings to studded metallic features, what used to be a workingman’s asset, today has become a woman’s arm-luxury, stamped with a legendary logo.
