Whether it's a steamer trunk for men or women, measurements and storage integrated change. The men's model is usually between 45 and 55 centimeters in height. The women's model is a taller trunk and is between 80 and 110 centimeters, although in some old catalogs we can find models up to 130 centimeters !
STEAMER TRUNK FOR MEN, CATALOG LOUIS VUITTON 1914:
MEN model (Fig1)
This model is based on the same principle as the women's trunks described on pages 8 and 11; but the man's hat, requiring much less space than the lady's hat, we have been able to increase the size of the bowl where gloves, neckties, collars, cuffs, scarves, handkerchiefs, etc., easily find place in special boxes.
Under this bowl is a large space for linen. At the end of the frame, hat and shoes, then a simple frame for shirts, and the bottom reserved for clothes.
1 simple chassis
Made with cow lockers Vuitonitte 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th series.
Under a different arrangement this trunk has exactly the same special locations as the previous one. The removal of only the hat and shoe boxes has reduced the height of the trunk and despite this, at equal length, it gives more space for clothes and shirts.
