This month, our friends at InsideHook are launching a once-weekly travel newsletter. What it won’t include: longwinded diaries about backpacking through third-world countries and people “finding themselves.” What it will include: actionable advice on new and intriguing destinations around the world, along with hacks, tips and tricks to help you jetset more intelligently. Sign up for free (and a chance to win a $500 Mastercard travel card) here.
Unless he’s truly roughing it, a man should always keep a suit handy during his weekend travels.
Never know when you’re gonna need to impress, right?
That said, keeping your dress clothes in tip-top shape isn’t easy unless you bring along a separate garment bag. And since we’re trying to minimize your luggage struggles/airline fees, a hybrid bag is the most convenient way to go.
By hybrid, we mean duffels (carry-on-sized, for our purposes here) that feature an integrated garment bag. Two bags in one, or one less headache for your flight.
Below, five of our favorites:
FOR LOOKS: The Suit Carrier Holdall
Your suit jacket and pants are placed in a garment holder and wrapped around a larger cylindrical bag, all secured with magnets and straps. You can also use the two bags — handcrafted from canvas twill, YKK brass hardware and veg-tanned leather — separately.
FOR BACKPACK FANS: Genius Pack
The company’s Travel Backpack (and, admittedly, the larger duffel) features an integrated tri-fold suiter for dress garments. Bonus: You can also add integrated chargers and pop-out micro umbrellas.
FOR LEATHER FANS: Hook & Albert Garment Weekender
Available in leather, melange fabric or twill, these decidedly handsome carry-ons feature spacious garment sections that can hold two full suits and a pair of shoes (in dedicated side pockets).
