Why Our Shirts Are the First Thing You'll Put in Your Suitcase

Here's four reasons our shirts will be the first thing you put in your suitcase. 

 

TRAVEL WITH A CARRY ON AND PLENTY OF OPTIONS

Most of our shirts weigh less than 7 oz. and take up almost no space in a suitcase. You could literally travel with all 12 of our shirts and it will weigh less than 4 pounds, while taking up mere inches in your suitcase. That leaves you 36 pounds...and probably space for an extra pair of shoes.

 

STOP PLANNING EVERY. SINGLE. OUTFIT.

You know what they say about the best laid plans. We have never taken a trip where we wore the outfits we packed as originally intended. Whether it was an unexpected heat wave or cold snap, more humidity (or rain) than expected, the local dress code is different than anticipated, or we just didn't feel like wearing that outfit, we've always had to reconfigure our options or purchase additional items.

We still plan outfits for special events with a specific dress code (flamenco in Spain), but for the rest, we pack a variety of bottoms to mix and match with our shirts and plan outfits on the go as weather, occasion, and local dress code dictates. 

Each silhouette is made to work with everything from shorts to suiting, and come in classic colors that pair with what's already in your suitcase. Or what you happen to discover along the way (like that fabulous skirt you found in Rome and wanted to wear immediately).

NO WASHER, NO DRYER? NO PROBLEM.

Our shirts are hand-washable and air dry within 1.5 hours, so whether you are traveling for long periods, visiting multiple cities, or experience the inevitable accident or stain, you won't need to find a local dry cleaner, pay for hotel laundry service, or be down an outfit.

PASS AS A LOCAL

No matter where people travel, they always want to feel like they fit in. Our comfortable, yet polished styles will have you looking chic as a local but are cut for movement and are breathable enough for you to travel like a tourist. Trust us, we've walked miles and then breezed into a nice dinner in Italy without requiring an outfit change. And we've been addressed in other languages because they assumed we were locals. :)

 

We design every shirt to support the adventure, whether it's unexpected weather changes to unexpected accidents/spills to unexpected opportunities (last-minute theater tickets in London or singing karaoke with a live band in Tokyo). 

Because we believe that travel isn't about packing more. It's about packing more in. After all, isn't travel about leaving your baggage behind?
