The Perfect Capsule Wardrobe for your Globe Trotting Man

When you travel as much as we do it is important to always have the right clothes to hand. To take advantage of last minute deals you need to have the appropriate clothes ready to be packed. That applies equally to all members of the family. Naturally, my husband wants to look good just as much as I do, and I know that applies to many of you too. So, I thought you would all appreciate a few tips to help you to put together a compact travel wardrobe for the men in your family.

Buy good quality clothes

You should always buy good quality trousers, shorts, t-shirts and men´s shirts. These will last longer and look better straight out of the case because they will be less likely to crease during the journey.

The basics

It is always a good idea to start with the basics. If you get the core of your man´s wardrobe right the rest will just fall into place.


A good pair of jeans is always a good starting point. They are hard wearing and are worn across the world. You will rarely look out of place if you are wearing jeans.

However, it is important to bear in mind that there are situations in which casual trousers will not be acceptable. For example, there are still a lot of hotels and restaurants that do not allow their patrons to wear jeans. Therefore, it is also wise to pack a pair of slacks or chinos.

A nice shirt

It is also wise to pack at least one smart shirt to be worn in more formal settings. A crisp white shirt always looks good whether it is paired with jeans or trousers.


Packing a pair of jogging bottoms is usually also a good idea. These can be worn for running, to walk to the beach, or used as PJ bottoms. They are a great example of a versatile item of clothing, which is the type of garments you need while travelling.


It is always worth taking a couple of t-shirts with you. On hot days, these can be worn as tops and on chillier days used as vests.

A hoodie or jumper

A hoodie is a good alternative to a jumper, but they can be a bit bulky. So, if you are short on space opt for a thin jersey instead.

The right footwear

Make sure the footwear you pack is comfortable and is suitable for wearing with any of your outfits. Shoes and boots take up a lot of space, so you need to take your time when choosing what footwear to pack.
