Keep Calm and Carry On bag

I love this retro airline bag. It was designed after the original flight bags used back in the days and printed with a slogan of fairly interesting origin:

In 1939 when war with Germany was on the horizon, the British Government’s Ministry of Information commissioned a number of propaganda posters to be displayed throughout the country. The only graphic used was the crown of King George VI and it simply read, “Keep Calm and Carry On.” The poster was never officially issued and remained in storage until it was re-‘discovered’ over 50 years later in a pile of dusty old books bought at an auction.

A fabulous carry on bag for the retro Brit in you! Find one at the Keep Calm and Carry On online shop!


p.s. I actually think this slogan would be very suitable for the struggling graduate student...
