    I love Tilley hats, especially the airflo. Thanks for the post, I had not seen they had a recycled mashup version.

    So, yes, as others have said, compression socks mitigate the discomfort air pressure changes can cause because circulation to your extremeties gets messed up. I have wide (17 inch) calves, so if I can wear them anyone can.

    Wearing compression socks does mean that you've got socks you won't wear at your destination. My minimalist-ish packing style is guided by the idea that everything I pack is useful for a variety of purposes. Compression socks are an exception to that rule. So, yeah, wool socks for Hawaii.

    I just returned from five sweltering days in Vienna, where linen shirts worked perfectly. They're lightweight and don't cling no matter how much I sweat. I never iron them while on the road; hanging them overnight is enough to soften the hardest creases. I found that this slightly rumpled look is fine for casual summer travel, and besides, everyone else looks rumpled in this heat, too!
