Here's a variation of the five designers questions. Just say that you and a couple of friends decide to go on a road trip, and you have just an hour to prepare. You don't know where, and you don't know for how long. After tossing your razor, soap, deodorant, toothbruch and toothpaste and a towel into your handy carry-on/backpack/rucksack, you have enough room for just, say, two full changes of clothes (including shoes), plus the clothes on your back. Apart from the clothes on my back, (dark vintage jeans, the latest sneakers I've found, a moleskin shirt over a t-shirt, like I'm wearing now, and a leather jacket), I would bring: 1. Black suit, white French cuff shirt, and some type of solid tie, maybe in a matte pewter. Black dress shoes. This should service from the opera to a nightclub to a high stakes poker game. 2. An extra pair of jeans, t-shirt and a zip up wool sweater - versatile and comfy for long days on the road - and I don't want to freeze my butt off in case we end up in Newfoundland - and a pair of trail runners (good traction and great for all types of sports). Since they're pretty light, I'd bring my running shorts and a jersey, too, since I feel pretty tense if I take even a couple of days off. What would you bring (Assume that socks and underwear don't count)? Remember, your list needs to be as versatile as possible. Assume that the trip could take you to from backpacking in rural China to white water rafting to eating canapes at intermission at La Scala (although I don't any friend that would make me do the last).
