While women may have a tendency to throw everything including the kitchen sink in the bag for a holiday or business trip, men can keep it simple with some classic essentials from Smith Street Menswear that will take you anywhere in style.

Smith Street menswear label director Melissa Gibson says everyday classics are a man’s best bet for the essentials needed to be travel-ready wardrobe.

“A lightweight, checked shirt, a pair of quality chinos or knee length shorts, and boat loafers are key summer style essentials,” says Gibson.

“A checked shirt is always a classic – dress it up or dress it down. It works with so many things – pair it with jeans for smart casual. Add a statement bowtie for a bit of evening personality.

“Then, a quality leather duffle bag is a great holiday investment – it’ll last the test of time.

“Summer to us means easy, fun shirts that work for both day and night, being more relaxed with trousers and mixing it up with shorts. It’s summer and who knows where the summer sun will lead you!”
