Authority on Elegance : Packing Essentials
As the authority on understated elegance, we are pleased to present a series of styling suggestions for your sartorial consideration. Please expect a mix of education, humor, inspiration, and interviews with our favorite style masters.
In time for summer travels, we introduce an elevated packing list that notes our recommendations for the well-dressed voyager. These essentials will not only travel well, but also offer the versatility needed for elegance on the go.
1. The Navy Blue Jacket
The effortless Travel Jacket that can be styled in a myriad of ways. The weight of the wool should be medium weight so that it travels well and is wrinkle resistant.
2. The Pant
There are several options here. A 5 Pocket, for casual evenings and exploratory days, a lightweight Linen, or a medium grey quality worsted wool in natural stretch.
3. The Shirt
For traveling we recommend a cut-and-sewn shirt in quality cotton or a pique. White is easy – and never conflicts with the jacket. Toned-down stipes or checks are likewise a smart choice.
4. The Necktie
Neckties represent both luxury and refinement. An easy mélange like this one is a nice, in-season, textural option.
5. The Shoe
Try a slip-on loafer that is always casually elegant.
6. The Hose
Bright colors in solids or fancies add a punch (and take up almost no room in a carry-on!)
7. The Time Piece
Keep it casual with a vintage choice that feels classic.
