This is for the dapper dude in your clique - the one whom duty calls to a bustling city every week, and who still looks fresh and on point to boot. Cue social media envy! Whether he’s throwing on a scarf as he dashes into JFK, or stowing tomorrow’s report in his briefcase before after-work drinks, this high-flying fella never sacrifices practicality for style, not even when he’s navigating four different time zones and climates before you’ve even planned your next weekend break.
A seasoned traveller never looks like he’s tried too hard, and these tennis shoes strike the perfect balance between pulled together and casual. Slipping on and off with ease, check-in will be a no-brainer; pair them with a suit trouser and jacket, however, and he’ll be the height of sartorial chic before you can say take-off! A limited edition version mean this find is truly one of a kind – just like our well-dressed mister.
We think these’d be perfect for the fashionable jet-setting fella. Elegantly streamlined and luxurious, these heavy grain premium leather headphones are lined with black lambskin and feature a sturdy aluminium body. Fitting well over ears, they’ll help any high-flying homeboy unwind completely during layovers, in between meetings, or even during a stressful stint at home for the holidays (because no, they aren’t always all fun and games). Removable ear pads and detachable cords make this portable gadget a dream to store in a front-seat pocket – or in a monogrammed briefcase, of course.
When he’s not flying across the country to negotiate another six-figure deal, this hardworking gent is hopping on trains and beating traffic to see his friends and family – so it’s safe to say a durable and manageable carry-on is pretty essential! Tumi’s Vapor Lite case is the brand’s lightest hard travel case yet, and a polycarbonate alloy outer shell keep this sturdy luggage looking pristine even when it’s braving the elements. Any gent will love this utilitarian piece, as chic in a high-rise hotel as it is in grandma’s eclectic hallway.
We love this lightweight, soft accessory for any stylish mister. Whether he’s hitting the day running or kicking back on a lazy weekend getaway, this refined scarf will help him stay cosy and polished all week long. Careful detailing won’t go unnoticed with this dapper gentleman, either: the wool and silk blend gives the piece a feel of understated luxe, while fringed ends and heritage houndstooth check add just the right level of statement-making preppy edge. Pair with a bomber jacket and leather boots for a relaxed off-duty vibe.
If ‘streamlined’ and ‘minimalist’ come to mind when describing this traveling fella’s style, then look no further than this monochromatic card holder. Streamlined enough to fit in a pocket for a fuss-free flight or long drive, it’s large enough to store all essential, uh, cards, be they for business or leisure. The devil is in the details: the quirky zigzag design and black lacquered piping keep this sleek piece on the interesting side of neutral. Five slots on both front and back allow for max convenience, while a practical central slip pocket allows room for storing receipts or slips during last-minute holiday purchases.
