Whether travelling for a business trip, or to indulge in a wine tasting experience in the South of France, the gentleman traveller has to do so in style, especially if he's wanting to keep up with his female companion. Fortunately, we've compiled our very own Gentlemen's Travel Edit, to ensure that one partner doesn't out-do the other, during a sun-filled meander around a foreign city.
'The insistence on the presence of both psychological and stylistic qualities- good humour, tolerance and plain style...appears to have been the norm for the gentleman traveller.' - Reinhold Schiffer.
Being very much a believer in the old British saying 'start as you mean to go on', we think that being style conscious should start in the airport. A sophisticated, leather holdall bag, or a travel wallet for storing passports and boarding passes is certainly a good place to start.
Daines & Hathaway have been makers of the finest leather goods for over 100 years. The brand utilises the highest quality leather in their products, including bovine and sheepskin, which sees the creation of an extremely luxury British item.
Daines & Hathaway make use of patterns that have been buried in their archive, and then give them a new lease of life to make them both on trend and practical for the modern man. Take a look at this at this travel Military Wet Pack, with its design imitating that which was utilised by British army officers during the First World War.
Through the additional inclusion of Taylor of Old Bond Street grooming products, these travel kits are essential to any suitcase, and just so happen to fit rather neatly inside the Daines & Hathaway Leather Holdall Bag.
The Daines & Hathaway Watch Roll is great for protecting those stylish (Fears, Burlingham or Elliot Brown) watches, from any unwanted scratches that can appear when they are sat on the hotel's bedside table. It is made from Pittards premium Brooklyn leather, whilst a plush inner cushion and suede lining can be found in the interior.
This Daines & Hathaway Travel Tray in Brooklyn Chestnut is perfect for putting your keys, change, watches and anything else that would otherwise be scattered across the hotel room, and leave you in a panic as you scramble to find it; especially on those rushed departures.
The Notting Hill Preset Panama Hat by Christys' London and the Rampley & Co Terrier Breeds of Britain Pocket Square are the perfect finishing touches to any gentleman traveller's outfit.
Whilst we've gone for a rather sleek brown leather look in this Gentleman Traveller's edit, here at Beyond Bespoke, there are a vast array of Daines & Hathaway travel accessories to purchase in a variety of colours. DISCOVER HERE.
