Autumn is fast approaching and it’s a great time to get out of town and enjoy the last few days of warmer weather. Take a weekend escape with confidence by investing in the 15 items we have hand selected here to make any trip better. From the clothing to the grooming products—and the bag to pack it all in—we've got you covered.
Not much is worse than being at the airport and having your phone battery go below 10%. You break into a "low battery sweat" and start poking around people's feet for an outlet. Good luck finding one that actually works. This Away Travel carry-on suitcase actually has not one, but two USB ports for charging. Get ready for envious stares.
Chambray shirts go with everything, always, and they look better with a little wear and wrinkle. This one from Bonobos is even designed to be worn untucked, so that’s easy. Pair it with charcoal gray joggers and a navy travel blazer (how lucky, we mention where to find those) and you will impress people going through security. That’s a promise.
Guys, the airport is not the place for those worn out pajama pants. Leave them at home and have a little decorum when spending hours in public with strangers. These joggers from Uniqlo keep you comfortable while preventing you from looking like a slob. They even have a pinstripe option should you want to feel fancy.
Streamline the whole security process—and look good doing it—with laceless kicks. The APL Techloom Phantoms in all white look great with a jacket and jeans, and double as your trainers so you can fit in your weekend workout once you arrive.
Chilly autumn evenings require an extra layer to stay warm. But long hours by the grill or late nights by the fire can leave a pungency you may not want to bring back with you. Luckily this classic Pendleton sweater gets thrown in with the wash. Vacation should not be “Dry Clean Only.”
Should joggers not be your style, that’s cool. The brand new denim from Joe’s Jeans is just about as comfortable, and built to last through a long weekend of wear. They keep their shape, so you can go a lot longer without washing. Just don’t go crazy, you still have to sit next to someone on the flight home.
Who knows where a weekend escape can lead. Luckily, these chelsea boots from Sebago work for a nice dinner out, or a rainy walk through the falling leaves, since they look sharp and happen to be waterproof.
One of the most common packing mistakes: forgetting your underwear. Don't do it. Pack these Mack Weldon with Silver XT2 Pima cotton drawers in your bag. They're an antimicrobial (AKA anti-odor) chamber for your boys now matter how much physical activity goes down on Saturday.
There is something nice about a substantial dopp kit that unzips all the way open, like this one from Moore & Giles. Rich Brompton leather patinas to a beautiful broken-in warm walnutty brown. Pick up this bag and it’s the last one you will ever need.
Don’t sacrifice the shave just for the sake of a carry-on! The Art Of Shaving even thought to include a travel size badger brush. That’s the sign of a company that cares about your perfect shave anytime, any place.
