TOP TIPS: TRAVEL FOR THE JETSET MAN

THISDAY Style - - CONTENT - BY AYODEJI ROTINWA

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.
