A Guy’s Guide to Packing Efficiently for Business

Are you one of the lucky guys who spends most of your working life on airplanes and in hotels? If so, you know the importance of keeping your luggage compact and maximizing your wardrobe (including your shoes) for travel efficiency. Here are a few traveler’s tricks we’ve picked up over the years to help you pack light, travel with ease, and look and feel your best on your next business trip.

1. Keep it monochromatic – Choose a single color for your trip and then mix and match pieces to switch up your daily wardrobe. Take along a button-down sports coat that works with suit pants or with a pair of jeans for dinner. To accent your look, pack shoes that will add a pop of color. A nice pair of dress oxfords, like the dipped calf leather ZINDEL in midnight or red, could be the perfect addition to complement and dress up your style while you’re on the go.

2. Pack multi-purpose styles – If you’re travelling to a city you’ve not visited yet, you might have a chance to take in the sights. Pack versatile items like a pull-over sweater for a cool evening out. In the shoe department, the DERRIK sport suede driving loafers have rubber sole pads to add comfort from a busy day to an evening out. This great loafer is available in a variety of colors to mix and match whatever you packed

3. Wear Slip-ons, Pack Laces –Traveling through the airport can be a pain. Frequent flyers know that getting TSA pre-screened or having your liquids and laptop easily accessible at security will make for a smooth process. On the shoe side, consider stylish slip-on loafers to make taking them off and putting them back on a breeze. The DACIO and DARRIN slip-on loafers are perfect for heading from the tarmac right in to a meeting. For a more casual look, choose a laid-back style like the PONCE waxy calf leather loafer.

Next time you’re on-the-go, don’t forget to your very best men’s designer shoes. Cool dress or casual oxfords and loafers are the perfect selections for versatility and comfort.
