I have found this sentence (which was quoted out of context to illustrate a grammatical point): Une [valise] comme on n'en fait plus, sûrement, puisque, d'après elle, on n'en faisait déjà plus de comme ça.

I have struggled to come up with a sensible translation but have failed. Can anybody help me, please?

Many thanks in advance.

A suitcase, the kind of which is not made anymore, for sure, since according to her, this kind of suitcases was already no longer made.

Does that make any sense in English? Smile
