Editor's Picks: The Best Men's Clothes for Travel
There’s no such thing as an ideal wardrobe. So when it came to determining the best clothes for men on the go, we decided to go a little conceptual. The pieces ahead are some of our favorites from this season, but they also function as a template for the ideal capsule wardrobe — a pared-down list of the pieces that should never leave your suitcase.
Mix and match the category items included (like a great, luxurious pajama set, and a blazer that can seamlessly take you from the boardroom to post-work drinks) for a stylish, functional travel wardrobe that can stand up to whatever your journey has in store.
Check out the full line-up of 2017’s Ultimate Travel Essentials.
