Today, the Gladstone bag is chic, trendy and multi-functional - the ultimate fashion accessory! - and I'm dying to get my hands on one like right right right now!

Interesting facts:
1. The Gladstone Bag is named after William Ewart Gladstone (1809–1898), the four-time Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
2. The Gladstone Bag is a type of suitcase which is "deeper in proportion to its length"
3. 'Gladstone' is the 5508th most popular name in the United States!
4. In some circles, the modern Gladstone bag is not considered a Gladstone bag at all!
5. The 'Gladstone Bag' Murder, based on a murder where a Gladstone bag featured prominently, represents one of the most important breakthroughs in crime detection and culminated in  ‘The Murder Bag’, an essential training for police involved in murder cases.
