So, you’ve got plans to take a trip to a secluded corner of the world and you find yourself at odds in the journey before the journey – deciding what to pack. At Kinowear, we’re going to help you out with the bare essentials a man should take with him on his retreat… served with extra style.
While these are the bare minimum to traveling in style, don’t spare expenses to sacrifice quality.
In other words.. Pack lightly and put together a set of clothes that work together and can be easily reorganized to achieve new combinations to effectively save space.
Hopefully this is a given, but always…always pack extra socks and undergarments. You never know what life might throw at you.
Go big or go home with a proper manly duffel that best suits your needs and wardrobe above all else. If not, double up and go for a backpack if you’re planning on going for bike rides/ hikes/ other adventures. For personal hygiene, a Dopp kit is the staple container for your toothbrush, soaps, and shaving set. These also come in multiple sizes and shades of leather, so genuinely take the time to find the right one that best suits you. It’s all about the finer details that complete a killer travel-savvy, confident and rugged look.
Another small tidbit, camouflage can be a serious modifier to your wardrobe by either toning down or bringing out your other pieces of clothing. Use wisely! (For a better idea of how to incorporate camouflage into your wardrobe, see our article on that here:)
For the more rugged outdoors, boots will be your best best. To see the various types of boots, check out our two-part series where we go through eight styles of winter boots.
