How do you pack clothes like dress pants, dress shirts, suits ect without wrinkling them? Curious how people here pack these items in regular suitcases as well.
For years I've been using a carry-on garment bag such as this one, its my best travel companion, a good piece will never fail you and any man can fit virtually all his clothes, including at least one pair of shoes in it. It's he best option for suits and hanger shirts IMO. Also, pack your suit and shirts with the thin plastic than comes with the dry cleaners.

I just bought this set on Vente Privee, totally forgot about the fact that thicker shell suitcases are heavier, Duh, I hope not by much..
Although I do take a considerable amount of road trips as well..

Will provide feedback as soon as I get them. As of now the status on VP reads "Dispatch expected between 5/2/2012 and 5/7/2012"... Ordered 4/10, NUts!

I'm looking to buy a new set of quality luggage. up till now I have only had the cheapest possible, however, now that I travel quite a bit and the stricter weight restrictions it seems liker time to "invest" in something of quality and lightweight.
I don't have a set price as I am not sure the going rate etc.
Anyone know of a deals out there?
thanks

Couldn't find a better thread to post in.

Looking for new luggage. Just had my four year old Samsonite bags returned to Costco for a full refund. Unfortunately it is not really possible to get from Costco again so looking for something more durable at a good price.

Anyone have experience with these?

Vente privee has American tourister today for a decent price.  Especially if you're looking for something to buy with a citi Amex.

I dont know that they are good - but target has them for $65
http://www.target.com/p/u-s-traveler-new-yorker-4-pc-luggage-set-gray/-/A-12046473?ref=tgt_adv_xasd0001&AFID=Performics_DealsOfAmerica.com_0004c835040527500ae0894f4900606f&LNM=Primary

Thanks for the heads up bought two of them
$65 - $5 off link on evreward.com - 5% Target card + NY tax = 62.04 - 9.5% cash back from TCB = total of just under $57, and easily returnable to Target if I don't like the quality.

How much (I'm no more subscribed to VP, hence I cant see the price)?

Pretty good deal, by all counts (even for Chinese junk).
Interesting that Discover is giving double the % of the Target card!
BTW, what's TCB?  Thanks.
