When you’re traveling, especially flying, you want to be comfortable. You have to be comfortable. But that doesn’t mean you get to go full-on slob in the airport. Grown men should have a little self-respect, and take our travel attire seriously. You can still have a killer look without sacrificing comfort. If you want to class up your travel look, right now you can get 30 percent off on your purchases during Jack Spade’s Spring sale.
The New York brand started out making travel bags in the ’90s and knows how to combine looks and journey-friendly clothes. We suggest their Travel Blazer (above) in a dark navy. It’s made from a cotton-elastane blend that’s breathable and moves with you, so you can go straight from the jet to a night out or a business meeting without missing a beat. It’s packable too, so you won’t be stuck with a sportcoat that looks like you’ve been sleeping in it (even if you have). The blazer is garment dyed, meaning it’s dyed after being put together — making for a softer feel with a uniform color — and half-lined, which also helps keep you cooler.
We suggest you pair it with the Herringbone Tattersal dress shirt (below), which features a red and navy pattern on white. It’s made of 100 percent cotton to keep you cool and is dressy without being overbearing. Finish off the look with the Linen Jogger (top) that’s relaxed enough to be a good traveler but stylish enough to help you put your best foot forward. And since it’s linen and features a drawstring, it’s super lightweight and has enough stretch to keep you from fidgeting in your seat. Plus, there’s the bonus of not having to take off your belt when you’re trying to get through the long security lines. Who knows, you may find yourself getting compliments on your appearance instead of beady-eyed looks from surly TSA agents.
The Jack Spade Spring Sale runs until May 29 with the code “SPRING” and features free shipping and returns in the U.S.
