Is it legit to take a garment bag with my suit in it on the plane? I've never paid attention before, so I am not sure what the "room to hang random people's suits" situation is.
Even if that is a go, I assume my bag would be way too bulky if I stuck all the shirts in with the suit. My shirts are all freshly back from the dry cleaners and are lightly starched. Should I just pack them into my checked back last and have them on top and hope they don't get too crushed?
I'm nervous, team. This event could lead to a legit job offer and a big increase in quality of life. I must look dapper.*
*Note: I've shaved with a safety razor/double edge for years, and I find it obnoxious that I can't take razor blades still in their package as a carry-on. I can take the shaver itself, but not blades. What madness is this?
1. You can always wear it. Unless it's a long flight, then that just becomes uncomfortable.
2. Pack it up in a garment bag. Here's a pretty succinct way to fold it.
3. F razors, grow a beard.
4. Most importantly, good luck!
