Consummate globetrotter Matthew Hranek argues that style and comfort are in no way mutually exclusive when it comes to dressing for the airport. With our new specially designed travel jacket, there's no excuse.
I always try to dress for the plane — certainly not in a suit — but I try to look smart. Generally, I am appalled at the state of how people dress at the airport — and to think, there was a time when a jacket and tie was the norm for air travel. Sweats, track suits, flip-flops, shorts - Crocs! These are all big no-gos in my book. I never understood this travel philosophy that comfortable has to be so unpresentable. I feel that dressing a little better for a flight presents yourself as a more confident traveller. My personal travel uniform consists of something like this: khakis, loafers, some kind of sweater, scarf, and an overshirt or jacket that serves a multitude of purposes.
