Going on vacation is a luxury. Whether you are sightseeing in a foreign country, skiing in the mountains, or even just having a low-key weekend at the beach, we all know that while being away is fun and relaxing, getting there isn’t always. From dealing with strict airline regulations to trying to fit everything you need into your luggage, it can also be a challenge to find accessories that are not only functional, but also reflect your sense of style. From sleek security line friendly shoes to luggage you’ll love and even miniature grooming supplies, here are five travel essentials every stylish man absolutely needs.
1. Lexdray London Garment Bag
Lexdray’s London Garment Bag is one of the most functional garment bags available because no stone was left unturned in its design. In addition to a hook for hanging your clothes, it also features built-in shelves, so you can be assured your shirts will stay perfectly folded and wrinkle free — all of this, plus it even has pockets for ties and socks. It also comes with a detachable fleece pouch to put in the safe, so you can easily keep track of your valuables. Everything about this design is simply genius.
2. See Modified Aviator Sunglasses
A good pair of sunglasses is essential whether you are traveling abroad or to the grocery store. If you’re going somewhere during the day, you need to block those rays. See makes it incredibly easy to do just that with its Modified Aviator Sunglasses. Available in several shades of tortoiseshell, from classic Honey to a bold Black-Blue, these shades feature polarized lenses and 100% UV protection. Also, at only $99, the price couldn’t be better.
3. The Art of Shaving’s Sandalwood Travel Kit
It’s important to get a good shave whether you are traveling for a big business meeting and you want to look professional or if you want to keep your face smooth when traveling with your partner. The Art of Shaving is known for its excellent grooming essentials and its Sandalwood Travel Kit is no exception. It features everything you need including Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, After-Shave Balm, and a Travel Size Badger Hair Shaving Brush. Plus, everything is packaged in a nice black leather carrying case.
4. Prada’s New Toblak Bit Loafer
No man likes to take off his shoes at the security line, but considering most of us don’t have a choice, the next best thing is to do is to buy shoes that slip on and off easily and look good. Prada makes an absolutely perfect shoe for this purpose. Made in Italy, New Toblak Bit Loafers are easy to remove and feature the brand’s signature decorative metal clip. The tops of the shoes are leather but the soles are rubber, making these a comfortable and practical choice to navigate the airport and easy to run in if you are about to miss a connecting flight.
5. Lululemon’s Let’s Blazer
Let’s talk about Lululemon’s Let’s Blazer: This is one of the best fashion inventions ever. It is made of a fabric that wicks away moisture because we all know how sweaty traveling can get. Featuring an internal pocket, perfect for your boarding pass and a rear zipper pocket, so you can keep your wallet safe at your destination, it’s a great garment for fitting everything you need to keep on your person. The fabric also stays wrinkle free, so you can throw it in your carry-on or suitcase (and even crinkle it up in a ball) and wear it out immediately. Available in two colors, this is something every man needs in his travel wardrobe.
