Use the right luggage: This means choosing luggage that weighs little, has several compartments for efficient packing, and can protect your belongings in case of a beating. We recommend Tumi’s black Julius 4-wheel carry on because it is structural in design but also looks sophisticated.

Roll your suit jackets: Hanger bags can be a hassle to carry or pack. If you do not want to use them, lay your suit jackets flat, fold so the shoulder seems are parallel, and roll from the shoulder to the hem. This saves space and causes less wrinkles than folding.

Use the shoes: They are always tricky to pack, but if you slip in socks into your shoes, it will save you space and simultaneously keep your shoes from getting crushed. Use clear bags to get them from marking your clothes.

Fold dress shirts: Because you will need more than one shirt for a business trip, fold your dress shirts together. Place them on top of each other with the sleeves spread, then fold them in half and cross the sleeves.

Multi-outfits: Opt for separates that can work with a number of outfits, such as shoes and shirts that work for business and pleasure. Choose neutral colours that can be paired with anything.
