Hey gents,

In our last Ask the Readers segment, I asked if your style is better off today than it was a year ago.

The majority answered a resounding yes! And I’m happy to hear that EG played a small role in your progression, but I definitely can’t take all the credit. All the advice and tips would be pointless unless you put it to good use. So high five to you!

*high five*

Keep improving, keep experimenting, keep working on your own personal style.

Here’s the next Ask the Readers question:

You just got the news, and you have to pack RIGHT NOW because you’re leaving tonight. You’ll be gone indefinitely, and you can only take two duffel bags: one for your clothes, one for whatever else you want to grab (mementos, extra gum, your cat).

What do you put in your clothing duffel?

Remember: You have no idea when you’ll see your closet again. You’re going far, far away. Maybe a round-the-world tour with no definitive end date. Maybe it’s the zombie apocalypse.

Also remember: You only have ONE bag for your clothes. What’s coming with you?

Obviously, what you’re wearing won’t be at the top of your list of concerns if you’re put in this situation. At the same time, you don’t want to walk the streets in your boxers… So indulge me for a moment and picture yourself in this situation.

So, what’s in that clothing duffel?

Make sure you cover all your bases. Think Lean Wardrobe, taking only what you need, versatility, etc.

Let’s hear it in the comments below!
