Or maybe you’re a busy business traveler. Or you just enjoy a few vacations each year. No matter the occasion, travel is a big part of our lives, especially plane travel. It can be tough to enjoy travel when you’re crammed into an economy middle seat on a 12 hour haul across the Pacific.

Fear not weary traveler. We have put together this guide to help your next plane experience as comfortable as possible. Sit back, relax, put your tray table up, and get ready for the ride.

How to Find the Best Seats

You have your tickets, now it’s time to pick seats. The last thing you want to do is be stuck in a middle seat, and you don’t want an obstructed view, but how can you pick a seat without really seeing the plane? Sites like Seat Expert, Seatmaestro, and SeatGuru let you know the best and worst seats on your specific plane.

What to Bring on the Plane

On the plane, you’ll want your necessities like headphones and something to keep you occupied like a book or tablet. But you’ll also want a few other items handy:

  • Comfortable socks- Don’t keep your shoes on the whole time during a long flight. Change into new socks to let your feet breathe.
  • Water bottle- Have an empty water bottle as you go through security. Fill it up before you board your flight.
  • Gum- Prevent your ears from getting clogged by chewing gum.
  • Snacks – Longer flights will serve you, but many short flights don’t. Bring snacks like jerky, trail mix, or snack bars to fill you up.
  • Meal- If you know the flight is 3+ hours, grab a sandwich to bring on the plane.
  • Tylenol or Advil- Always safe to have it!
  • Ear Plugs- Don’t let a noisy neighbor prevent you from getting some shut eye

What to Wear

Yes, being a jetsetter means you want to be stylish, but don’t compromise feeling comfortable for looks. You will regret wearing a tie on a 7 hour flight, we guarantee it. Dress casually.

For guys, this may mean chinos and a dress shirt or a nice t shirt with a jacket. Ladies, avoid the heels. Nobody wants to walk through a concourse in shoes, especially if you’re late and have to run.

If you are on an overnight flight, bring a change of clothes like sweatpants and a t-shirt so you feel somewhat more comfortable.

Now you’re ready to head off on your next journey! If you’re a business traveler or just need a suit for your next adventure, let Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers tailor to perfect outfit for you.

What Men Should Pack for a Weekend Getaway

During the summer, its always nice to break away from the office routine and the business hours by going on a weekend trip. At Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers, we firmly believe everyone needs a break. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean you can’t take your style with you wherever you may be traveling to. We know packing may seem like a daunting task with the fear of overpacking and under packing; the stress can get to people. Here are a few ways you can relax on a getaway with easy, cool style and the perfect amount of clothes.

PANTS

While on a weekend getaway, depending on where you are going, it is wise to pack a few pairs of pants even in the summertime. Opt for one pair of jeans and one pair of slim khakis. These both are very versatile pieces that go with just about everything. Wear them to the airport, dinner, or a night out on the town!

SHORTS

One of the most vital pairs of clothing you will need for your summer weekend getaway. Shorts are the trademark of summer, by exchanging your long pants for a charming short is one of the best parts of the season. Be sure to pack one khaki short and one patterned short. Wear these around the hotel, out to lunch or soaking in the sun.

SHIRTS

Wearing one is usually optional, but here we have some pointers for you anyway. You will need to pack 3 shirts for your vacation, perfect for the amount of days you will most likely be gone.

  • One is a floral shirt, think beach and relaxed vibes, that you can wear to the beach or on a sunny day.
  • One thin summer sweatshirt, for if it does get a bit chilly, you can wear on a night out.
  • One simple pocket tee, which is great for the airport or traveling. Its easy and will help you cool down.

In addition to these, a simple navy blazer is always excellent to have on hand just in case. This packing list will be sure to give you a memorable and fun weekend getaway over the summer.

 

Don’t Clash or Crash: Cycling to Work in Style

cycling

Sometimes getting out of bed in the morning and groggily making your way to work is enough energy for your morning routine. However, a new craze has come along! Biking to work is now becoming increasingly more popular. People have always biked to work, whether its your environmentally conscious friends or your freakishly fit acquaintances, and others just like to avoid the rush of traffic in the morning hours. For whatever reason you bike to work, there has always been one complaint, “I always have to change my clothes after.” This age old problem has kept people from slipping on their spandex and packing their work clothes for the day.

With the popularity of biking to work at an all time high, a new industry has been created. Suits designed to bike to work and take meetings in. Companies like Parker Dusseau have developed a suit you can bike to work in using Marino Wool-Spandex Blend, a stretchy material. The crtoch has a diamond design instead of a four way seam, providing flexibility and comfort.

Although these suits are pricey, $495 for the jacket and $295 for the pants, it still provides a gateway to new designs and new ways to get into this niche market. So, next time you think about grabbing your bike rather than your keys, don’t hesitate!

Travel in Style

When you travel, you want to be comfortable and stylish. It’s not always an easy thing to do, but Anatomie’s travel line makes it easy to do both. Kate and Shawn Boyer are the brainchild behind Anatomie, a designer fashion brand. The collection was created with today’s travel women in mind and encompasses the areas of high-performance wear to modern designer travel wear, as well as sportswear. Kate describes her creations as sophisticated and sexy, just like the women who wear them. Anatomie’s collection draws inspiration from the most highly-regarded European fashion houses, and is designed to flatter the female form in a way that bespeaks class, elegance and style.

Anatomie’s formative period dates back nearly a decade to the time when Kate traveled from her native Hungary to the southern French town of Montpelier to pursue an MBA in International Trade. It was there that the former gymnast secured a position as a fitness instructor as a means to finance her university degree. Kate then began training a group of teenage girls for the French Aerobic Championships, which is a highly coveted title they won and held for three consecutive years. For competitions, Kate outfitted her young gymnasts in attire she had designed initially to wear herself.

Kate and Shawn first met in Miami, where he was designing fashion apparel for hard-to-fit athletic men. The creative couple has since designed collections for Elite Models, Fashion Sport, Cigarette Offshore Racing, and Lamborghini just to name just a few.

Anatomie’s guiding philosophy has always been functional fashion. The foundation of their collection is high-performance designer French and Italian fabrics that are durable enough to meet the demands of extreme sports. Anatomie translates those fabrics into a sophisticated sexy silhouette that is minimalist, durable and ultra-modern.

This spring, Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers will carry Anatomie, the exclusive travel-wear line of NetJets. Anatomie was created specifically with today’s traveling women in mind. The designer travel line was founded on the principle that Anatomie’s travel clothes “travel” better than any other clothes. Made from the finest French and Italian fabrics, Anatomie’s clothes are machine washable, wrinkle free, and never fade.

“I think this line is perfect for the women of Naples who are always on the go,” says Joseph Wendt. “Whether they’re jetting off to Europe or the east coast, Anatomie offers comfortable everyday designer clothes that women can feel great wearing.”

Wendt says for the charmingly easy-going girl, the Abbe Leather Jacket (top right) is a great choice. This travel jacket offers a perforated design that goes perfect with wanderlusts who loves visiting metropolitan areas. Add this in your luggage if you’re spending Spring in New York or Paris. The leather material is lightweight, bringing you comfort in mobility and movement. Plus, it’s just a chic thing to wear on cool weather nights!
