Good contemporary furniture isn't exactly cheap either. Certainly not in the $100/side chair range Parker was discussing.
I thought New York smelled old fashioned the first time I tried it, but over time that feeling fell away. I think it's the aldehydes that give it that impression.
I was traveling once or twice a month in 2013 and 2014 and I never used a clear bag, and I was never stopped at security to look at my dopp kit. It's a rule they don't enforce for some reason.
