Traveling is a chore for everyone. You have to remember what to pack and when to pack it by. Oh, and then there’s that last minute sudden realization ten minutes before the driver is supposed to get there that you’ve managed to somehow forget toothpaste or something else vital. The rush only stops once the plan is off the ground and only then because you’re officially committed to things and there’s no more fussing left you can do. While OROGOLD can’t help with these standard travel dilemmas, we can suggest a few extra things for you to consider before your next trip. Pack smart and stylishly with these accessories. Don’t be that guy who has shaving cream explode in his suitcase all over his shirts.
You’ve seen them before. Whether it was your father or grandfather, those small, often leather bags they stuffed all their toiletries into when traveling. Sometimes they even just kept things in them routinely to keep things tidy. These bags come in a myriad of forms allowing you to pick the one that suits you best. A quality leather bag exudes old school charm no matter where you put it, but maybe you’re a more modern sort of man. If you are, then feel free to consider other materials as well. The key when picking out a good bag is to figure out what you need. The variations in size are important, yes, but a number of higher quality bags include extra features to make travel easier on you. But do remember to pack your toiletries in one of these just to keep everything tidy. It certainly beats digging through luggage pockets for the fifth time in an evening wondering where your razor went.
Tired of all your ties looking unfit for wear when you take them out of your suitcase? Consider investing a tie case. This luggage component is meant just for ties and as a result maintains a slim profile meant to trap and hold ties flat within its confines. Most cases hold multiple ties and you can find one to accommodate your particular sartorial needs with little difficulty. The best part about a tie case? They seldom take up any more space than the area you already tried to devote to your ties. Tuck one of these in that area and never worry about your ties failing to live up to your suits again.
A frequent world traveler should accessorize like one. Don’t fumble around for your passport. Instead invest in some version of the passport wallet. These range from a more traditional looking wallet of suitable size for a passport to hard case shells. The idea remains the same though. One of these stores all your vital information for travel and often times things like travelers checks, credit cards, and even tickets. It provides a one stop place to store all of these things without fiddling through multiple pockets to find the right thing. Streamlining things like this is certain to help when having to deal with the usual airport hassles and make airport security happy to see at least one person who has it together.
You know your favorite ways to travel and should take those into consideration whenever you’re planning for your next trip. These ideas might just give you an idea on how to make things go a bit more smoothly the next time you’re about to dash out the door though. OROGOLD hopes your next trip around the world will see you not only looking your best, but showing the world what a savvy traveler you are.
