“When my fiancé Jeremiah and I first met, he would come and visit me with a duffel bag, and there’d be one shoe in it—not the pair,” Berkus said about his soon-to-be husband, while celebrating the fifth anniversary of Charm & Chain in New York City. “Now, the inside of his suitcase literally looks like a Japanese Bento Box. He’s put me to shame, and I thought I was a really good packer.”
Here, Nate—who has more packing cred than he gives himself credit for—tells us the 10 things he won’t board a plane without:
1. Cashmere Shawl: I wear it on planes. I’ve had the same one for 10 years. It’s super soft and desperately needs to be taken in and tailored to have the holes filled. I bought it in Istanbul.
2. Bose Headphones: Always.

4. Vintage APC Jeans: I wear them all the time.

5. Magazines: There’s a stack that I leave on the plane or give to the flight attendants. My go-tos are Vanity Fair, Town & Country, ELLE Décor, House Beautiful, and Dwell.
