The custom-made Dopp kits ($5,500) by designer Nigel Curtiss are the epitome of customization and craftsmanship. Constructed of matte alligator skin hand-cut in Italy, the kits are available in 20 different colors, with pockets lined in matching kid leather. Zippers are available in yellow, rose or white gold and titanium. The customization needn’t stop there: If a more specific feature is desired (say, mink lining), Curtiss will consider it. 212-929-2222;
