Whether hours down the road or just around the corner, the American Good Life can be found wherever friends gather to mix drinks and good conversation. The Chief Trunk Company is made specifically for this new era of gatherings, jaunts and journeyers.
The Chief Trunk Company is a revival of the Oshkosh Trunk brand, a provider of august travel accompaniments throughout the Golden Age of Travel. Now, the brand is reborn for a new journeyer. Someone ambitiously carving out their own version of the American Good Life to share.
Right before his family’s annual trips to Lake Winnipesaukee, Chief Trunk founder Konrad Duchek’s parents would pull out two very distinct trunks, each with the unmistakable red and yellow Chief Stripes. The appearance of these stripes meant the beginning of a treasured journey, to a coveted destination.
Years later, while in a Parisian flea market, Konrad spotted one of these very same trunks, bringing back a flood of memories. As his Oshkosh archive increased, it became apparent that the brand was primed for a modern revival. Not bringing it back to a Golden Age, but creating a new brand for a new version of the American Good Life.
