Folded, Flat or Rolled...

Packing has become a bit of a sport: How much can you fit in your bag? Can you squeeze a whole month's worth of items into one carry-on? And what's the best way to get your clothes to your destination with the fewest wrinkles? As frequent fliers and packers, the Condé Nast Traveler editors love nothing more than a (very serious) debate on the fine art of suitcase stuffing. This one gets heated: Do you save more space by lying clothing folded and flat in a bag, or by rolling everything (from sweaters to pants) like tidy logs? Read our takes below, and then decide: Which side are you on?

TEAM FLAT PACK

"I talk about flat packing so much, I feel like it should be in my epitaph—which is fitting, since I will, in a sense, be flat packed myself at that point. I’m such an advocate, I made an entire video to disprove you rabid rollers out there—you can watch it below—so I feel like I have science on my side. Rolling takes more time, doesn’t work with certain items (I dare you to try rolling your warmest, heaviest cable knit sweater), and in my experience, doesn’t take up less space in your suitcase. Flat packing feels intuitive, doesn’t require too much effort, and crucially, it helps me always find a little extra space in my luggage to squeeze in another T-shirt or pair of socks. Rollers of the world, I’m begging you to stop promising me more space and fewer wrinkles, and to face the cold, flat truth: Flat packing rules!" —Jayna Maleri

The 959 Horsepower Mustang Espionage

From BoldRide.com

In movie history, the Ford Mustang fastback has traditionally been the hero’s car—think BullittGone in 60 Seconds (both of them), even Need for Speed. The rationale makes sense. It’s a gorgeous design, a potent performer, heck who wouldn’t want the Mustang to win? 

This Ford Mustang however treads a fine line between hero and villain. It’s known as ‘Espionage’ and it’s the clandestine design of Wisconsin’s famed mod shop, the Ringbrothers.

Based on a ’65 Mustang fastback, the car made its big debut at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, but according to brothers Jim and Mike Ring, it was no easy task to pull off. Each one of the Mustang’s sleek body panels are made entirely of carbon fiber, and all are far from mere copies of the original fastback, making it one of the Ringbrothers’ toughest builds ever.

Jet lag, flight delays, crammed airplane seats: Getting from point A to point B doesn't always bring out the best in us. But to make it through some of travel’s most stressful scenarios, you have to stay calm and choose your words wisely. Speak like this for smooth sailing through any want-to-pull-your-hair-out-and-scream situation.

YOU NEED THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT

Say: “My name,” suggests Joe Thomas, a flight attendant of nine years for a major airline. “‘Hi Joe. Can you help me with this person I'm sitting next to?’ comes across a whole lot different than, ‘I need you to fix this,'” he tells Condé Nast Traveler. “It makes me feel like you took the time to remember my name and to speak to me like I'm not your servant, but that we’re there on the plane together.”

Asking for help can switch on a compassionate side in someone else—if they empathize with you, they’ll be more likely to assist, says Andrew Newberg, M.D., co-author of Words Can Change Your Brain.
