Packing Tip from Richard Krulik (CEO, Briggs & Riley)

Bans bulk and sticks with a central color scheme

Be careful not to over fold, it’s what bulks things up, taking up unnecessary space.  I spread things out as widely as I can, laying my slacks on the bottom of the luggage with the “legs” hanging over the sides.  I pack on top of the slacks and then fold the part that’s hanging outside back in – it makes a nice gentle fold instead of a hard crease in the legs.  It saves space and prevents wrinkles at the same time. With sweaters, I take thin cashmere instead of cable knit.  I’ll limit the variation of colors to bring only two pairs of black shoes, which I alternate wearing.
