Note: If you are arriving in Fall then don’t bring too much of winter clothing because you will be having 3 months before the winter sets in. You have ample time and more importantly cheap sales during times like Black Friday where you get very good winter clothing for less. So save yourself some money and precious check-in weight by bringing not more than a jacket and a sweater vest.
