Heading away for the holidays? Let our expert men’s style guide help you hang up your nine-to-five and get the most out of your travel wardrobe.
No matter where your travelling may lead you, a set of quality basics are a must when you’re living out of your suitcase. Light and breathable cotton tees, smart polos, linen shirts and shorts are the perfect building blocks for any transient wardrobe. Our advice: Invest in quality basics that will wash and wear well. The better quality the cotton or linen blend, the less you’ll need to maintain the shape and density of the fabric - there’s no need for your clothes to look as jet-lagged as you.
Check-in your Chinos
A style that rarely disappoints, the chino pant defines smart casual dressing for men. Trousers that take you from day to night with ease, they’re pretty much a passport to the ultimate in comfort and style when travelling.
Off Duty Jacket
Take a peek inside any stylish man’s suitcase and you’ll find a versatile jacket or blazer made from premium lightweight fabrics such as linen and cotton. Stick with a single or double button design in either navy or neutral and ensure you store it away hanging as much as possible. Having the addition of the jacket will give you the option to elevate your outfit – you’ll be ready for anything.
Backpack in Style
Not the kind of backpacking you may be thinking of (though still a noble way to traverse). The grown up leather backpack is a great way to keep all of your essentials and travel documents organised and safe, in style.
Gather your most versatile sunglasses, belts, hats, shoes and finery to ensure that you’ve got all of your occasion bases covered. Unexpected match? Pack a pair of leather boat shoes or sneakers to head out for the night. Feel like eloping? Pack a pocket square just in case the mood feels right. Our tip: Be ruthless, add only what you need when packing your accessories – quality over quantity.
