While there are a lot of perks to living a jet set lifestyle, there can be some drawbacks as well. Unless you’re traveling with a few dozen suitcases, you’re going to need to get creative when it comes to looking good on the go. At VK Nagrani, we understand the need for the modern gentleman to have a few sartorial tricks up his sleeve. We’ve compiled a few essential items to take your jet setting wardrobe up a notch, so you can look go whether you’re in New York, New Delhi, or New Zealand. Check it out below:
Up in the Air
Inevitably, being a jetsetter involves a lot of time in the air. Even if you have the best spot on the plane, it’s never going to be that comfortable being confined to a small space for that long. Make the best of your air time by dressing as comfortably as possible. While we’d never advise our customers to be anything less than stylish at all times, there is a bit of leeway in modern air travel. What’s the compromise to comfort without looking sloppy? Try the VK Nagrani VKR Hood and VKR Cargo Pant. These items aren’t your standard sweatshirt and sweatpants. Taking their cue from more tailored clothing, these items are structured to give the impression of more reined-in apparel without sacrificing any of comfort. So if you want to relax in style on your next transatlantic flight, you’ve got the clothing to do it.
Dinner Plans & A Night on the Town
You never know when you might want to make impromptu dinner plans. Whether you just met a new potential client or a new potential girlfriend, you want to have the clothes to make that perfect first impression ready to go at a moment’s notice. For travelers, this is the outfit you want to keep stashed in your carry-on bag so you’ll never get stuck in a new city without your go-to dinner look.
Our suggestion for a versatile dinner look is something that can quickly be dressed up or down according to your setting. The Captain’s Shirt is a great staple piece for this. Made from 100% Swiss cotton fabric, it feels like a t-shirt and looks great. Luxury retailers know the appeal of the Captain’s shirt. Keith Carlisle, the Men’s Divisional Merchandise Manager of Stanley Korshak writes, “We love showing and selling the Captain’s shirt. Any color, doesn’t matter. They are soft, comfortable and tailored to have that trim but not TOO trim fit. Most clients buy all colors after trying one. Personal preference is the long sleeve, but the short sleeves are an easy sell in the summer. We never have to take a markdown on these either. They are good sellers all year.” Dress it up with a jacket like the Aviator Jacket for more upscale spots or roll up the sleeves for a trendy hipster joint. The Captain’s Shirt is as versatile as you are.
Should you feel inclined for a drink and a night on the town after your dinner, your Captain’s Shirt and Aviator Jacket combo should serve you well. Dressing up for a night on the town is a bit of an art form in and of itself, but once you’ve mastered your go-to ensemble, you’ll look great no matter where you’re headed.
For the finicky sleeper, turning in at the end of the night can be a nightmare. And that’s in your own bed. When you’re staying in a hotel, you never know how the bed is going to suit you, whether it’s too soft or too firm, or the sheets are too rough or the blankets are too warm. There are virtually unlimited ways to make you uncomfortable when you’re trying to rest from a day of travel. Cue the PJ302 Jam Set Long. Made from 100% pure Peruvian Pima Cotton, the pajamas offer luxury comfort to help you sleep no matter where you’re staying the night. The medium weight pajamas are a contemporary update on the classic men’s pajamas that makes them perfect for carrying over to a morning walk on the beach or reading the paper over a room service breakfast.
With VK Nagrani, jetsetters everywhere have the clothes they need to feel at home in the world.
