Do you put stickers on your luggage?

I thought stickers on luggage went out in the 1950s but now I see that Rimowa has many different kinds available. Do you use them?

I have no hard side luggage, so, no. Husband has one hard side piece left, and yes, it has stickers. (oh, his checked gun case is also hard side and has stickers). Many of our bags do have some patches sewn on them....

Call it showing off, I guess like artwork or pictures not a bad thing, just a thing. I put it up there with those who use their elite status name tags, no

Why are stickers showing off? You didn't ask if we're putting Aman resort stickers on, as in the old destination tags that went on Vuitton steamer trunks. That's a different question and you appear to have a bias in mind already.

I happen to like stickers & patches better than ribbons or fabric paint to try to make my bag stand out on the carousel. Not that I have a black bag now (I do not) but I do appreciate originality....
bulbmogul and here and there like this.

I feel the same way about luggage stickers as I do bumper stickers: They turn a classy product into a tacky one. Hard pass for me, but to each his own.

i think they look awesome and places I have flown too, yes sure is a bit of show boating but who really cares..These cost me USD$95.00 and the Rimowa Belt was $250.00 on top of the cost of the Rimowa Cabin Plus Titanium ..!

No, they just clutter a beautifully designed, clean-lined product and make you look like a hoarder. Maybe if you have cheap, ugly bags to start with, it might make sense, but why pay for nice bags and then deface them? But, I know that not everyone shares my minimalist tendencies, so I'm sure some people think they look great (but they're wrong ).

I have so so many pieces of RIMOWA Aluminum (20+) pieces that one or two f them with a few stickers just adds a bit of color to the fleet..

I can't remember if I had Rimowa or Louis Vuiton luggage when I was 12 years old. Or maybe it was Abercrombie and Fitch.
