How I Pack My Suitcase — Featuring My New Line of 747-Inspired Socks

One of the questions that I’m asked most often is how to pack a suitcase. For many people this process is fraught with anxiety: How do you fit everything into a limited space and keep clothes from looking like they just came out of a suitcase? Well, I have my own method of avoiding wrinkles, a technique that I call the “Stack and Fold” method. In the video below, I demonstrate exactly what to do.

I’m not a germaphobe, but I cringe every time I see people barefoot at security, which is why when socks and legwear brand HUE approached me I thought it’d be fun to create a travel-themed sock, which you can see toward the end of the how-to video. This pair showcases a playful design inspired by my favorite aircraft, the Queen of the Skies — the iconic Boeing 747.

The Jetsetter Sock is available for you to purchase as of today! The socks are available in four colors — black, navy, graphite heather and espresso — and each pair costs $9, or you can choose to buy a bundle of three for $24. The rayon, cotton and polyester mix features a cushioned sole to provide extra support. Best of all, they’re one size fits most, so everyone should be able to fit into them — a perfect gift for the frequent traveler.

The best part about these socks — aside from the comfort and showing your AvGeek 747 pride — is that proceeds from purchases made from my links (here and on TPG social) go to Points for Peace. If you’re not familiar, Points for Peace is our campaign with PeaceJam, an organization that brings the teachings of Nobel Peace Prize winners to children around the world on how to best make positive changes in their communities. With Points for Peace, you can donate your points and miles to help fly Nobel Peace Prize winners and PeaceJam conference leaders around the world.
