TOP TIPS: TRAVEL FOR THE JETSET MAN
Most fashion advice you will read about travel style tells you how to look when abroad, how to fit in, how to dress in the styles of the city you’re visiting. Not many will tell you how to dress for the actual journey. Travel can sort of be like work, and often times it is not pleasant. The aisle is most definitely NOT your runway. I mean of course if you’re travelling first class, things are bit smoother, but whether class you’re in; you are sitting, sleeping or stretching in a chair for five hours or more. Fellas, here’s how to travel not only in style but in comfort. WARMTH When you’re that close to heaven, so far up in the sky, it is awfully cold. Most plane blankets are only so thick and can only do half of the job. Rock a sweatshirt. It’s not too thin, it’s not too thick either, and can give you the extra layer of warmth you need to make sure your insides don’t freeze before you start your descent to your destination. There are many options that would keep you warm and score style points at the same time. IMMIgRATIOn CleARAnCe ReAdy SHOeS I am not sure why men do this to themselves: wear shoes that have a thousand and one laces, that are impossible to untie and a pain to put back on. If you’re an older gentleman, I would suggest super comfortable velvet slip ons or loafers for when you travel. If you’re a younger lad, kicks, trainers would do the trick: and not the kind you have to untie significantly to take off. Both would still work with sweatshirts. OFF dUTy TROUSeRS THAT dO nOT BReATHe This is hardly the time to wear suit trousers. even if you’re popping into a meeting straight from the airport, do not do this. Sweatpants or jeans, this is what you need. They are comfortable and they do not necessarily take in the temperature around them like other articles. Sweatpants chosen should be made out of jersey-cotton fabric mix or preferably just jersey.
