Are you kidding?

Of course my bag fits. I’m smirking because I (and 29 others) have been chewed up and spit out by American Airlines today. I know, join the club. This trip is in fact 13 days if you count the travel days so it’s now “13 days/13 pounds.” And thanks to a missed flight tonight it’s four countries. We’ll reach Zurich via Heathrow instead of a direct flight from JFK to Zurich.

Looking very dapper, Brad. Good job on keeping the looks up while traveling light! By the way, what are those pants you are wearing? They cannot be the REI charcoal pants from the list, no?

Forget about it. Once again, I didn't read thoroughly enough. I also saw some Cocona pants by Docker's the other day. Looked really nice but were not available in my size.

But I bought another pair of the Perry Ellis Portfolio Travel pants at Macy's, which makes now three pairs. If I find a really good item, I like to get different versions in different colors or even in the exact same color as back-ups. These pants are great. They don't wrinkle, they are stain repellant (really works), can be machine washed, keep the crease, needn't be ironed (works REALLY well), they are lightweight and breathable. They are well cut and outright elegant. The pocket interior with phone pocket plus change pocket is super practical. The price is very good at $40 (usually $70 which is still great). The only thing they are missing is a hidden elastic waist. Otherwise they would be the ultimate travel pants.

I couldn't visualise the clothes when I read your list.....they look great and more importantly......comfortable!
Sorry to hear you missed your flight, that bites.
