Just because a passport is now required for travel to Mexico, Canada, and most of the Caribbean doesn't mean you also need a passport case. Then again, need isn't exactly the point. If your practical side wants convincing, here are three rebuttals when one of these little cuties catches your eye.
"It beats spending five times as much on a new purse."
Kate Spade, katespade.com, $65.
"It's less expensive than buying a new passport every time it gets scuffed."
Louis Vuitton, eluxury.com, $240.
"We didn't need a new lawn mower, either."
Smythson, smythson.com, $180.
