Recently, I hesitated at a flea market and lost out on the perfect pair of aviators. I was crushed. They were handsome and cheap. You see, I don't splurge on sunglasses. After losing too many pricey shades, I now refuse to fork over any more than $20. Which is why I was stoked to find the "wingman" glasses by Vans. Sure, they won't last as long as more quality shades, like Randolph Engineering's classic Sportsman model, but they look a lot like the antique pair I missed out on. And after I scratch off the logo (see FYI above), no one will ever know they're not vintage.
What should I pack for my first business trip?

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
