TRAVEL IN STYLE
Fellas, when traveling, it’s not enough to look good, the item’s you carry must look good as well. They say something about you. So today, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite travel items that I actually use, and hope you get inspired.
Let’s face it, airport workers aren’t very considerate with your luggage. It gets thrown around and tossed on and off the plane. So I choose a bag that provides major protection, but also had major style. This Calvin Klein does just that. (Pictured is the blue, but I have the black)

When traveling for a couple days, or the weekend, I stick with a duffel bag to carry my clothing and other items. This bag provides lots of room to pack everything you’ll need. I kept it in a simple black just in case it has to coordinate with my roller.

I tend to switch it up a bit between bags for this one. I try to stay away from pattered ones, just because I know that I will have it on my all throughout the airport and I don’t want it to overpower my outfit. But, I still want it to stand out. So I stick with bold colored bags. This particular one is big enough to carry your on board essentials, yet small enough to get under airplane seats. I also like the “M” on it since my first name is Michael, lol. Thank you Mr. Jacobs. [I have this blue one, but I can’t seem to find it online anymore, except on the Marc Jacobs website. The black one at Bloomingdales is pretty snazzy too though.]

It’s really either or for me when it comes to these items. I’ll take my Mac if I need to do homework or will be gone for more than 3 days; I’ll take my iPad on any other circumstance. Either way, I want to have a cool stand out piece and that’s where these sleeves come in. I love the designs and the protection they offer my items.

I chose a leather dopp kit simply because of the longevity. I knew that I would last longer than say, a canvas dopp. For those who aren’t sure what this is for, it pretty much carries your toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.
