Let’s face it – holiday preparation can be a chore. At times, the thought of packing is even more painful than the gruelling gym sessions we so often submit ourselves to in the weeks before our holidays. Cue the sought-after advice of three seasoned travellers – men who know a thing or two about what to pack. We’ve consulted Matthew pike, a minimalist aesthete and advocate of good design, Joey London, a creative man of the world, and Jeroen Van Es, a sneaker enthusiast with an eye for the perfect snap, to find out what they’ll be packing for their trips abroad.
A little bit of thought goes a long way to ensuring a seamless transition from work to play. To guarantee maximum relaxation and no last-minute panic buys (those fluorescent green shorts from last year were a mistake), we suggest spending some time planning what to pack. Whether you’re heading off on an urban adventure in a pair of trusty sneakers, or will be hitting the pool with full-frontal, lazy-man aplomb (ie. not leaving the sun lounger for seven hours of the day), our style insiders’ advice for holiday packing will make the plunge that much easier. Happy holidays.
