In Partnership with Neiman Marcus

While we might not be able to travel to as many far-flung locales as we had hoped to this fall, the fact remains that we can travel to a whole lot more places than we could last fall. A cause for celebration in our books, and also the perfect opportunity to pick up some new duds to make our sojourns — to wherever they may be — more comfy and stylish.

Thus, we’ve partnered with our pals at Neiman Marcus to curate a collection of travel essentials, from your go-to plane getup to some supremely versatile shirts, pants and shoes to the stylish bag into which you will carefully and tidily pack all of it, and definitely not at the last possible minute before rushing out the door because you would never.

Read on and travel in style.

Vince French Terry Hooded Sweatshirt + Sweatpants

It’s tough to beat the comfort of a sweat suit for flying — it’s just about the coziest getup there is, perfect for settling into your seat, throwing your headphones on and tuning out while you get where you’re going. And now that brands like Vince are crafting kits from elevated fabrics and in smartly tailored cuts like this one, all you need to do is throw on a smart pair of sneakers to hit that sweet spot of both feeling good and looking good.

Orlebar Brown Haden Tipping Wool Polo Shirt

Orlebar Brown Haden Tipping Wool Polo Shirt

We’ve long extolled the virtues of the knit polo as a key wardrobe essential whether you’re traveling or not. You can dress it up with slacks and loafers, dress it down with shorts (more on that in a second) and sneakers, you can wear it under a suit … long story short, this sucker can do it all. And if it’s got some low-key contrast piping and a zippered neck for a little added flair? All the better.

Orlebar Brown Bulldog Botany Swim Shorts

About those shorts we mentioned above: never hurts if you can grab yourself a pair of swim trunks that can easily do double duty out on the town. Thanks to a tailored cut, understated pattern and classic three-pocket construction, this pair from Orlebar Brown should carry you from poolside to patio with no trouble whatsoever.

Rag & Bone Fit 2 Authentic Stretch Jeans

When it comes to overall sartorial versatility, a good pair of jeans is tough to beat. Clean, classic, timeless. Problem is, they’re not always your comfiest pant option for the on-the-go rigors of travel. Enter this lightweight pair from Rag & Bone, built from Japanese comfort-stretch denim that’ll have you movin’ freely even in this superbly tailored fit.

Who can be bothered with laces on vacation? Instead, opt for a handsome court shoe that you can slide in and out of at TSA and that will pair nicely with elevated and casual ensembles alike.

Bey-Berk Leather Watch & Sunglasses Storage Case

Bey-Berk Leather Watch & Sunglasses Storage Case

Multiple sunglass and watch options are very much a nice-to-have when traveling, but admittedly a pain in the neck to pack effectively — no one wants to be throwing expensive eye/wrist wear in their dopp kit. No more with this handy case from Bey-Berk, which keep two of each snug and protected without taking up too much space in your bag.

Salvatore Ferragamo Gancini-Print Weekender Duffel Bag

Salvatore Ferragamo Gancini-Print Weekender Duffel Bag

Speaking of bags, an eye-catching leather weekender is a must-have for short jaunts and carry-on compartments. And nobody does leather quite like the shoemakin’ legends at Salvatore Ferragamo. This Italian-made, calfskin-lined duffel boasting the brand’s famed Gancini print not only looks stately, but it also has enough room for everything we’ve listed above and more.
