Welcome to Jacket’s Required, hello, I’m Dominic Lacquaniti, designer and tailor.
This week’s episode of Jackets Required TV I’m going to share with you the six items every gentleman should have when traveling.
If you’ve been tuning in regularly then my first item on this list won’t be a surprise to you…
A nice white dress shirt. This is an ESSENTIAL. It can be dressed up or down. Worn with jeans or a suit. It’s going to serve you in a number of ways.
The 2nd travelling must-have is a pair of dark denim jeans. Again because you can dress them up or down. You can wear them both day and night. They are extremely versatile.
See the theme here? When traveling you want options and ease. The top 6 things on my list deliver both of these, in style, of course.
Next you should bring a nice dark blazer. Can you guess why? You got it- it can be used in multiple ways for travel convenience. Navy is a nice crisp dark color that works with a lot of different clothing options so you’ll always be prepared.
Fourth on the list is a nice pair of dress shoes. Wingtips are great in black or brown, depending on what else you are packing. You definitely want a nice pair of shoes as a lot is assumed about a man by the shoe he is sporting.
Fifth on MY list are key accessories. Toss a couple of ties, pocket squares and cufflinks in your luggage. Now you’ve got the ability to transform your shirt, your jacket and your overall look multiple ways. Simply brilliant.
Lastly I’d advise you to pack a nice v-neck sweater. Of course if you’re heading to Arizona and it’s 115 degrees out – don’t, but otherwise it is always nice to be prepared for a chilly day with a simple way to layer and change up a look while keeping warm.
Share with your stylish, and style-challenged friends, and be sure to let me know if you have a specific question or topic you’d like to see in the series.
Thanks for watching. See you next week. Remember, looking good is between you and your tailor…
