In most European cultures, a pink amenity kit is just completely unthinkable for all but the most extroverted heterosexual males. An (albeit ugly) silver one is not.
at least you reveal your thoroughly old-fashioned soul!
to associate the color pink with homosexuality is hopelessly outdated!

No, it‘s not what I said. Never said pink is associated with homosexuality, only said that most heterosexual men wouldn’t usually pick a pink kit.

My daughter likes pink, too.

of course you did not say this directly but your use of the term "heterosexual" implicated it!

Only if the world only consisted of either heterosexual and homosexual men. There are also women, boys, girls, etc.

Every time I hear the term "real men..." it just seems so out of touch. I guess I'm not a real man as I prefer the violet.

They look very nice, but for use later I find them very impractical in size. They are too small for much practical use.

So while I use a lot of airline kits for travel use, these either go to the garbage after the flight or if someone manages to show interest before I get around to tossing them.

Yes it is funny how it seems to be the end of the world if people do not get their Rimowa kit on their flight - another seemingly award traveller syndrome..?

Or maybe it is some human rights decree I have missed, entitling all humans to a Rimowa kit on every TG F flight?

The older Tumi amenity kit bags are better, as I can easily squash them in to my hand carry and the flexibility of the canvas material allows me fit a lot in. Still, my wife loves the colours of the Rimowas, especially the more unusual ones like lime green, pink, violet, black etc. We have quite a collection now, probably about 30 of them, and they are regularly given to family and friends

That’s probably true. I got rid of just about everything that was in the rimowa case, as it was not great quality.

Still more useful than the candle one gets on SQ these days...
