As Barney Stinson taught us, sometimes you just need to suit up.
You’ll rarely look better than you do in a suit, which is why it’s important for every man to own at least one good one. However, even after you purchase the perfect suit, you still have to maintain it. While reliable cleaners and some reasonable breathing space are usually more than enough to do so while at home, once you have to take it on the road, your prospects get trickier.
A proper dry cleaning bag, or even quality suitcase, goes a long way to helping you avoid wrinkles or worse, but if you really want to carry one in a style befitting the suit itself, you might want to consider the Freefold luggage system, from the creator of the also useful Suit Commute.
The main benefit of the Freefold lies in its portability. It weighs about 7 oz., can fit into any 25 liter carrier (most suitcases, luggage, and backpacks qualify) and allows you to safely store your pants, shirt, jacket, and tie using a simple set of folding instructions. From there you can move around with complete freedom without worry of your suit ever losing its fresh from the cleaners, original pristine form.
While the Freefold is only in its pre-production phase, it if works as well as it appears to, then it’s hard not to recommend one to anybody who has to take their suit on the road. Considering how it can fit into any reasonable space (no special luggage or accommodations required), it gains a leg up over most alternatives not just in long distance road or air travel, but also in the usual, everyday work commutes (especially if you ride a bike).
Also, it allows you to enter the front ready for a party, and leave out the back all business, should you so desire, essentially making this the anti-mullet.
And anything that’s the anti-mullet has to be good.
