Men want to look great when they travel too. Last month we wrote about the best Mix and Match Travel Clothes for women, but we don't want to leave out the guys. Dave has really upped his travel wardrobe and joined the land of fashionable male travellers. With the holidays approaching and prime vacation time in full swing, we thought we'd round up a few of his favourite pieces of men's travel clothing.
Dave's Favourite Men's Travel Clothing
We do a lot of hiking and sporty types of stuff during our travels and convertible pants are still our go to piece of clothing for both Dave and Deb. Why? Because if you start a morning trek and it's cold, you'll want your legs covered, but as you work up a sweat throughout the hike, you can zip off the bottoms and be in shorts. The shorts are stylish enough that you can wear them anywhere on their own and if you want to quickly become presentable at night, you can zip the legs back on for dinner.
We used to be dead set against packing jeans for travel. But as fabrics have become lighter, they are a good addition to the travel bag. The stretch bull denim jeans are comfortable for sleeping on the plane, for sightseeing and stylish enough for going out at night. They're one versatile piece of travel clothing.

A new addition to Dave's wardrobe, these Margaritaville reversible shorts are my personal favourite. They are two shorts in one. Fun and colourful on one side for the beach or plain and presentable khakis for the city. They fit will and look great!
Hemisphere Short Sleeved Shirt
This is a lightweight easy to wash and dry shirt that looks fabulous in any situation. For travel, Dave loves the chest pocket to keep his passport and boarding pass handy when flying. You can dress this shirt up or down but you can also wear it on a hike or to go trekking. It's breathable material makes it good for all situations.
Another shirt to look great at the beach or for checking out galleries. It is laid back and relaxed, but stylish enough to look good anywhere. This is the shirt that looks good for a night out. It's like a bit of a Richard Branson type of I'm relaxed and confident, but I look good doing it.
One always needs a T-Shirt in their travel bag and TravelSmith has an array of Tees in their store. Dave likes the CoolMax short sleeve Tee because its lightweight, moisture wicking, and quick drying, it's perfect for our travel style and it looks good enough to wear anywhere.
Dave has always struggled with shoes. He either wears hiking shoes or flip flops but as we spend more time in urban areas in our travels, he's been looking for something that is comfortable yet stylish. He finally found them with the wave trek sneakers. These are sporty enough that he can wear them sightseeing during the day, but once he dresses up at night with a smart pair of jeans and button down shirt, these babies look good enough to go out to the bar.
