There was a time when flying was glamorous. The time before people brought full cases on board to shove into bins above our head. Before seats seemed like re-purposed baby seats packed side by side with little to no leg room. Before airlines made it their mission to make your experience as unpleasant as possible.
But the other element of flying that has lost its glamour is the way that passengers dress. It seemed to have started with women in yoga wear and has evolved into men and women wearing their most comfortable and baggy clothing, including the sweatpants and t-shirts likely worn on a sick day at home.
If you’re struggling with finding a balance of comfortable and style, look no further. The following outfit is the only one you’ll need whether you’re on an important business trip or simply meeting up with the guys on a boys’ getaway.
Made of 100% cotton to ensure versatility, durability, breath ability and ease of cleaning, this two-button blazer in a shade of gray and can be paired with a shirt or even a T-shirt (although we will recommend a button-down shirt).
The greatest invention in our time beyond the internet is the non-iron dress shirt. This is particularly crucial during air travel. This shirt by America’s oldest men’s retailer is all you need to get you through a long day of travel and still look sharp.
When trousers look this good, it doesn’t matter if you’re going for a business look or a casual look. These slim-fit brushed stretch cotton chinos by Hugo Boss add a little colour to your outfit and is not only versatile but also soft and very comfortable.
When traveling by air, you’re going to be on your feet a lot. Why not treat your feet right and do so with style with the Verona II Bit Loafer. Loafers are a great idea when slipping them off and on at security, but they also allow you to easily remove them during that cross-Atlantic nap. Of course, Allen Edmonds offers the best Italian leather that fits this outfit perfectly.
Air travels comes with a need to be organized, between a laptop, passport, iPad, tickets, different currencies and more, it can be challenging to keep track of everything. The Albany Slim Commuter from Tumi is the perfect option. Large enough to fit your laptop and iPad, it still has room for much more to be organized and stylish at the same time.
Although these headphones look great and will provide hours of listening entertainment on those long flights, the best part is that they’re also noise cancelling, meaning that you can drown out the noisy airport or flight but also provide a message to the chatty passenger next to you that you just want to be left alone.
