best luggage for keeping a good business suit nice

When "business casual" attire won't do, but you have a long flight, a long trip, and will be checking your baggage, what kind of suitcase is best to keep a business suit looking nice? We usually travel more casual with smaller, softer bags, but not this time. I remember my dad's Samsonite or Invicta hard-sided "two suiters" from the 1960s but I don't know if they make them any more. I don't mind spending a reasonable amount, but am not a fan of truly high-end luggage for many reasons and will not be looking at Hartmann, Vuitton, etc. Are there any other strategies? Maybe SeatGuru shows whether the plane has a hanging coat closet, and if it does, the suit could travel on a hanger in a garment bag (or board the plane wearing the suit, with casual clothing and a soft garment bag in the carryon, and then change into casual in the bathroom and put the suit on a hanger?) Jut flying in the suit is not an option on a long flight or redeye -- I am afraid it will become rumpled, stained or smelly.

I pack my suits in a suit back (google Eagle Creek). I can get 3 suits in a pack and they are fine, even after long flights. I love my packing cubes, use them for everything.

Eagle Creek makes good stuff... often found at TJMaxx for about 10 cents on the dollar, but you have to be lucky.

There is actually a company that makes luggage that lets you roll up your suits, it's called SkyRoll, www.skyroll.com. Their stuff is well designed and reasonably priced.

Ellemays forum on packing tips is full of wonderful ideas.

A tip from a friends grandmother many years ago for my first ever business trip...

Fold your business shirts with tissue paper in between, it adds stiffness and will stand up to long haul flights crease free. No need for a suit bag ever and minimizes the need to iron at your destination.

Ever seen a boutique store wrap business shirts? The tissue paper is used for a reason and it works!

Hello!

I realize that I am a bit off topic with this but since we are talking about luggage and everyone here seems to be a seasoned traveller, I hope I can get some help with my problem.

Cheers!

I would say that you need to replace the locks. IMHO locks are just for making sure your case does not open on the carousel and spill your clothes everywhere. Never put anything of great value in checked luggage.

PS - another time start a new thread with your question and you will get more replies. Many people do not respond to new posts on old threads.
