Dopp Kits – Something for your Sir

Khoi Le Swiss Dopp Kit and goods

A Dopp kit is a small toilet bag, made of leather, vinyl or cloth that is used for storing men’s grooming tools for travel. Common items kept in a Dopp kit are deodorant, a razor, shaving cream, comb, shampoo, nail clippers, scissors, toothbrush, toothpaste and cologne. The name derives from early 20th century leather craftsman Charles Doppelt, a German immigrant to the United States, who invented his toiletry case in 1919.

The kits became widely known during the Second World War when they were issued to GIs. Doppelt’s company was purchased by Samsonite in the early 1970s.

Dopp kits were once a common gift given to adolescent males as they ascended from boyhood to adulthood.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office lists the trademark for “DOPP KIT” as canceled.

In the British Isles the item is known as a “sponge bag”

Right. Some mornings, shaving is going to feel like dragging broken glass across your face and then patching it up with salt and vinegar. It can be a lot better experience if you buy a great Dopp kit  – just like you own a great gym bag, or a nice watch. Upgrade your cheap, plastic shaving kit to something that will last a lifetime, and won’t break after travel abuse. Your daily shave is gonna feel better.
