No, were not talking about those globetrotters. There will be no short shorts and headbands in this look. This is the guy whose business takes him all around the world. Travel is tricky, but this look oughta cover all of your bases…
This one is kind of all about looking professional and put together, while maximizing comfort. Unless you have the resources for a private jet, you probably dread airports and airplanes. Uncomfortable waiting times and even more uncomfortable seats make any long trip miserable. So you need to counter that by doing everything you can to keep yourself feeling good. Take this double-vented jacket from Lova, for instance. It’s made of a lightweight summer wool so it won’t be too hot and the side vents allow for better movement than a single vented jacket. Black Fleece shirts are just so damn comfy. The fabric is great for travel as it is comfortable, but still professional. Throw on a pair of slim-fitting cords by J. Crew as they feel and look great without getting overly casual. The choice for shoes was easy, as driving shoes are a must for long travel. No one makes a better one than Tod’s as they will make you feel like you’re walking on pillows. Everyone needs a bit of carry on, but do it in style with this bag from Paul Stuart. Finally, if you’re used to jetting around the globe, check out Monocle magazine as it is meant for travelers. It’s one of the best written mags out there and is the leader of these new school publications that are outshining the traditional powerhouses. It’s almost half book half magazine, so at least it will keep you occupied for a couple hours.
