I used to work in advertising, and thus I have hung around with some of the most eccentric, exotic and extraordinary people imaginable.
Flash back to a large conference room in a major European city (this happened at LEAST three times...). The room is full - a couple of hundred advertising professionals from around the world. There are amazing haircuts, astonishing eyeglasses, jewelry you've never seen before or since, scarves of every possible description, tied in every way you could envision. Shoes? The mind reels just at the memory. And the socks were a thing of beauty...

For the next few days, I'll be running around the eastern US, and so I got to pull together a quick suitcase out of my new 333. (for those of you unfamiliar with Project 333, start here).

I'm going to be travelling with others, so I wanted the world's smallest piece of luggage, and I wanted to be able to be appropriately, but simply dressed.
