We’ve gushed about the nostalgic charms of the steamer trunk, but it seems we overlooked the one thing they were missing: a sense of humor.

Globe Trotter’s new Surf Rider collection corrects the oversight with the strategic use of Hawaiian shirts, possibly the most whimsical item in the menswear canon. The cases are lined with an earth-toned Hawaiian print that could have been lifted straight from Don Ho’s closet.

As for what you’ll put inside…a little bit of whimy goes a long way.
