Look of the Week: Men's Summer Travel Essentials

Look of the Week: Men's Summer Travel Essentials

We're guessing you already have the bag, sunglasses, gadgets, and destination. Here's what else you'll need.

Packing

 -Ever notice how girls walk into stores like Bed Bath & Beyond only needing sheets, and walk out with 50 items they didn't realize they "needed"? Flight 101's kind of like that, but for travel. We especially dig their space-saving travel pack set (#5), featuring a bag for storage, shoes, and toiletries -- done, done, and done.

-For some, their passport is their lifeline. Keep it prestine in this sleek little case by legendary Brit brand, Smythson (#6).

-Roll up and stash away this clever Vapur Anti-Bottle (#1) pre security check. Post pat-down, fill it up and stay hydrated through every adventure. 

In Motion

 -You'll quickly cherish these Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones (#2). They're slimmer than most, but every bit as fierce.

-Whether you're filling out Customs paperwork or jotting down a few digits, you never know when you may need a good pen. We like this trusty Montblanc (#3)

-Real men wear chapstick (#4). Especially while on an airplane with stale air.

Vacation Mode

-All you really need is sunblock (#7), a little cash money, and a smile, right?
