Let’s talk about baggage (no, not THAT kind of baggage).

Planning a honeymoon in Hawaii? A getaway wedding in New Hampshire? No matter what the occasion is, when it comes to prepping for a trip, quality luggage should always be the first thing you consider. Shoddy luggage will wear quickly with all the throwing around and your stuff won’t be as protected. Wouldn’t you be so wrecked if your favorite college-T had succumbed to a catastrophic cologne spill? To avoid these types of mishaps, it’s best to have a case with pockets and compartments to help keep you organized — and a dopp kit to keep toiletries from being exposed.

Below are some travel bag options I’ve found, ranging from suitcases and carry-ons, all the way down to shoe bags (keep those shoes clean, fellas!). I also threw in a garment bag for those that are shopping for a destination wedding.
