As eagle-eyed viewers of Netflix's new hit show, The Gentlemen, and HBO Max's Succession and The White Lotus might have noticed, Carl Friedrik is the go-to brand for many of the series' beloved protagonists. The Swedish-founded, London-based brand behind some of the travel industry's most luxury luggage is featured in several episodes throughout the series'.

Most recently, in episode 1 of The Gentlemen, Carl Friedrik’s signature hard-shell suitcase, The Carry-on X, makes an appearance with wads of cash inside. Featuring an aluminum frame with Italian leather detailing, the sleek carrier has a handy frontal pocket for quickly retrieving travel documents or a laptop. It also has TSA-approved lock closures for keeping your belongings safe, and according to the brand, you can pack up to 5-days worth of outfits.

Real-life shoppers are obsessed, with one reporting it's "the perfect combination of style and functionality, I absolutely love this luggage. While most carry-ons will fit a 15" laptop in the front compartment, this Carl Friedrik luggage will perfectly fit my 16" MacBook Pro M1. For me, that was the #1 priority, so to get that feature in a bag this stylish and well-made, makes this an absolutely perfect find. The clasps are smooth, making opening the luggage fast and convenient, and the spinners are buttery-smooth."

Earlier in the episode, the Goswell business portfolio is also spotted and is perfect for the businessperson on the move.

This isn't the only time the luggage brand was featured on TV. As fans of Succession might remember, Logan Roy & co. exclusively traveled with Carl Friedrik. Throughout the Emmy-winning series, the Carry-On—as well as the Check-In—were spotted lurking in the background as everyone's favorite dysfunctional family fought over finances. The brand's Palissy Weekend Bag, which is suitable for two days of clothes, was also seen and one of Shiv's favorite travel pieces.

Then in the second season of The White Lotus, Sabrina Impacciatore, who plays the uptight hotel manager Valentina, is filmed carrying a camel Palissy Briefcase on the streets of Sicily. Also made of the finest of leathers, the structured case is big enough to carry a 15-inch laptop compartment and features various organizational pockets.
