If you spend the majority of your time on the move, it’s important to have the right accessories with you to make your travel experience as smooth as possible. However, this can be a challenge when you’re working and traveling at the same time.
To help, we’ve put together this guide to the must-have men’s accessories for business travel to make your work and travel experiences that little bit more comfortable.
A classic timepiece
No matter whether you’re attending an extravagant business lunch or looking to impress a prospective client, a classic timepiece can suit almost any occasion and take your attire to the next level.
A classic men’s watch is typically characterized by a minimalist face and simple leather strap. Whilst there are many classic watches that sport this style, in reality there are countless variations of the typical ‘classic watch’ to choose from. We also recommend investing in a secure watch carry case, such as one from the Case Farm range, to keep your new watch safe whilst you’re traveling.
If you’re looking for inspiration for a classic watch to add to your collection of travel accessories, we recommend the Bremont Solo watch. This simplistic watch sports hardened polished stainless steel hardware and a calf-skin leather strap, making it a comfortable and stylish wear for business travelers.
Noise cancelling headphones
Noise cancelling headphones are an essential for those who spend a lot of time commuting. They can help you to block out any external distractions and focus on your work, no matter whether you’re on a plane, train or on the road.
The Bose QuietComfort 35 over-ear headphones are the among some of the best noise cancelling headphones on the market, and will be a useful accessory to have if you’re working whilst on the move. Not only are they comfortable to wear and stylish, they also come with Google Assistant built-in, so that you can manage your daily work tasks hands-free. You can also use them to work remotely using tools such as Windows Virtual Desktop Azure based on VDI Desktop as a Service technology.
Duffel bags offer the ultimate convenience and comfort when it comes to business travel. They’re easy to transport and can fit a significant amount of clothing and accessories within them, making them the ideal choice for traveling businessmen.
There are a number of different materials that you can choose from. For example, a canvas duffel bag allows you to maximize the available space as the material is flexible. Leather duffel bags are more aesthetically pleasing but more rigid, therefore, you may not be able to fit as much in them.
We recommend the Gucci Technical canvas duffel bag for a happy medium between style and practicality. This option features a leather Gucci tag and a lightweight canvas exterior, making it easy to transport from location to location.
If you’re a frequent flyer, it’s vitally important to take good care of your skin whilst you’re in the air, just as you would while you’re on the ground. The atmosphere on board an airplane is dry and harsh, and this can take its toll on your skin when you spend prolonged amounts of time traveling.
In order to combat this, don’t forget to pack your travel skincare on your next business trip. This will help to keep your skin feeling nourished and rejuvenated, and you’ll look fresh faced on your way to your next meeting.
The grooming on-the-go kit from Kiehls is the perfect travel companion to help you take care of your skin whilst away on business trips. This includes a cleanser, age-defending moisturizer, exfoliating body soap and 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner - therefore, you have all you need to keep your hair and skin in top shape whilst traveling.
Portable battery pack
There’s nothing worse than your phone running out of battery just when you’re due to head off to an important meeting. Fortunately, a portable battery pack will help you to solve this age old issue, and make sure you and your phone are always ready to go.
This phone-charging wallet from Seyvr combines your essential tools into one: your wallet and your charger. With this, you’ll never be short of cash or charge whilst you’re on the move.
