FLANNELS Five: Holiday Essentials

FLANNELS Five: Holiday Essentials

Holidays are essential. To keep us sane and make all the long hours at the office worth it – they are a necessary part of life. And not only that, but they’re very enjoyable, too. One of the highlights of our year, in fact. Whether you’re lucky enough to be jetting off to numerous exotic locations this summer, or you’re having a chilled-out staycation at home, there are a few key essentials (aside from swimwear) that every man needs to kick back and relax in style. This is our ultimate vacation staple hotlist.

Gucci logo embroidered black cap


It wouldn’t be a holiday without a hat. How else is a man meant to protect his sun-starved British scalp from burning? This embroidered Gucci number has the added benefit of being indisputably cool and simultaneously understated. Wear it backwards for extra style points.

Saint Laurent SL Sunglassses


Whatever you do, wherever you go, be it Cornwall or the Caribbean, don’t forget to pack your sunglasses. This classic pair of Saint Laurent SLs will keep you looking fresh no matter how many Margaritas you made your way through the night before. Another drink please, barman.

Gucci GG monogram sliders


Whilst most of your holiday will likely be spent horizontal on a sun lounger, occasionally you may have to get up – to walk to the pool or bar, perhaps. It’s instances like these when you’ll be in need of some very stylish sliders. Slip this Gucci pair on as you walk your way into vacation mode.

Fendi duffle bag


If you don’t have anything in which to pack your clothes, then you ain’t going anywhere fast. A stylish travel bag like Fendi's duffle is a crucial element of every holiday – so you look as good on the plane as you do when you’re kicking back poolside. Good luggage is key.

Valentino VLTN white short sleeved shirt


Your out of office may be firmly on and your tie firmly off, but most holidays call for a little sartorial panache every now and again. Polos, Tees and other basics are on every man’s packing list, and a shirt should be too. No matter how bohemian you are, they’re a must for dinners, clubs and more formal occasions. Don’t forget your aftershave.
