  7. 7. Packing Tips• Never check your presentation unless they pry it from your cold, dead hands• If you must check a bag • Carry on all necessities and a clean set of undies • Wear something which could work for the following day … just in case• Learn to split your suit • Wear the jacket over a dress or with bottom • Use the suit pants with a sweater or different top • Use accessories to make things look different
