Travel light – part deux

Are you travel ready? Passport ✔︎, currency ✔︎, Trip Advisor itinerary ✔︎, then all you need to do is pack your bag. My last post focused on bringing just enough clothing and essentials to get you through your trip, and not have you check any luggage.



With a simplified assortment of clothes, my Hart Schaffner Marx sportcoat was the perfect compliment while wearing my jeans during the day, or trousers at night. Fall brings out the earth tones, and the best part of “made to measure”, is that I can choose my fabric, add an elbow patch, and have functional buttonholes on my sleeves.

Recently picked up these auburn colored jeans from AG, and I love that the fabric isn’t stiff, and that they make this model in other colors, means I’ll be adding a few more to my collection soon. I could have worn my sneakers, but ironically the stitching on my wingtips paired well with my jeans.

Who made your Ferragamo?

As men’s fashion enjoys the spotlight, more guys want to separate themselves from the crowd.   Salvatore Ferragamo, a brand where shoes are the core of their business, offers customers the chance to design their own driving shoe.  With over 10+ leathers and Ferragamo logo “bits”to choose from, the combinations can be as tame or wild as you design them to be.  As most men will continue to wear either a lace up, or slip on shoe, a driver is an elegant piece that can dress up or dress down your outfit for any occassion.  So which color will you make?

Just discovered the greatest loafer to hit the pavement. Lightweight, water resistant, and available in a variety of colors, this is a great gift for the traditional or modern dad in your life. Whether he wants to water the lawn or hang out by the pool, he will look his best in a pair of Swims.
