All dressed up – let’s travel

Sport coat and slacks that look good – day in and day out – from Magellan’s

When you've traveled close to a million air miles, you learn that one thing you can’t live without is a good men’s blazer.  Whether for an important meeting or fine dining, a blazer that travels well is pure gold.

I finally found it!

A few months ago I discovered the Ultimate Travel Blazer from Magellan’s. For well under $200, this is the most forgiving coat I’ve ever worn. Folded in a suitcase for three days, it unpacks and wrinkles fall out almost immediately. On a 12 hour flight back from Taiwan, I sat in it for the first couple hours and then used it as a blanket for the last four hours. No wrinkles!

If its wrinklelessness wasn’t good enough already, they pack it with extra features. In addition to the typical exterior pockets, this comes with four generous-sized, zippered, internal pockets. They are perfect to hold airline tickets, cellphone, compact camera, mp3 player with earbuds, and even a seven-inch Android tablet. Keep that in mind next time you’re stuck in your seat waiting for the “fasten seatbelts” light to go out. With this coat, you’ve got everything you need for hours of enjoyment on the plane and terrific stylish looks while you’re off the plane.

Magellan’s offers the Ultimate Travel Blazer in two colors: black and tan. Here’s how they describe it:

The soft, wrinkle-resistant, microfiber thin wale corduroy is perfect year round, and dresses up or down with ease. Mesh half lining is breathable, and a touch of spandex ensures ease of movement. Classic tailoring details include a two-button front, shaped shoulders, chest pocket, flapped hip pockets, and back vent. And inside there are four zippered security pockets. Made of 85% polyester/13% nylon/2% spandex.

And slacks too

As a perfect complement to the coat, I also picked up a pair of their Flat Front Denim Pants. Available in denim and dark denim, these are some comfortable, smart-looking slacks. With just a hint of Lycra in the fabric and a hidden, stretch waistband, these slacks just fit great, day after day. I got the darker denim ones, and they don’t show dirt the way my khaki pants do. Even on two-week trips to Zimbabwe and Chile, they still held their shape and looked sharp. They even include a fifth hidden security pocket.

If you are looking to perk up your wardrobe for 2012, you need to seriously give these a look, or pass this article on to the Santa Claus in your life. While you are at Magellan’s website, you’re liable to find a slew of products you never saw before. Happy shopping.
