Air Travel

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
I vaguely remember this being posted on AAAC once. Seeing as there is no search function (and I'm lazy), I'll bring it up again.

What's your usual plane travel attire?

For me...tends to be a cotton navy blazer (or wool in the cooler months), pair of chinos or dark-wash jeans if I'm feeling trendy, and an open-necked shirt. Tie is too restrictive for air travel.

In my experience, slipons are a good idea, mostly for ergonomic purposes.

If I'm smuggling something, e.g. booze or food, and want to avoid attention I'll wear a suit and tie. Otherwise, something comfortable like polo and jeans.

Depends on whether I am traveling for work or play. For work, I generally wear a suit, unless I am traveling the night before a meeting the next day.

Even for play, my attire depends in part on length of travel and destination. To Europe, I will generally wear comfortable jeans, a collared shirt and a zip cardigan. And loafers of some style. Longer flights, say to Asia, may prompt me to wear a few more layers to deal with 15 hours on a plane. Or I'll pack a separate outfit to change into during a layover in ICN/NRTprior to arriving in BKK/SIN/KL.

Always Jeans, always black Prada Sport (now Linea Rosa) loafers. I always wear jeans when not at work, and those are the most comfortable nice looking shoes I've ever tried. I vary the top half a little more, with anything from a t-shirt and sweater or polo shirt to a button down and blazer. I will sometimes kick it up a notch when waiting for a "battlefield" upgrade. Frequent flyers will know what I'm talking about, and those who don't probably won't be affected by it.

My typical clothing for the San Francisco-New York trip is a navy blazer with silver buttons, a pair of Levi's, a long sleeved checked shirt, an undershirt to keep me warm at 37,000 feet, black over-the-calf socks, black shoes, and a colorful print pocket square to finish it all off. I also slip a flask of vodka into my jacket to help smooth the flight out. I can go from the plane to the hotel and then to a casual dinner without changing.

Thin-soled loafers on the feet, whatever is appropriate for when I get off the plane. If I can be wearing whatever, then usually a sportcoat, shirt, and jeans on top of the loafers. No extra metal, such as cufflinks.

ive got 14 hours on a plane separating me from Paris in a couple months, think Ill wear jeans, sneakers, light sweater, and carry a jacket, as the flight gets in to Paris really early morning, so it'll be a cold trip in from de Gaulle.

I'll usually wear something comfortable, like a suit/tie or an odd jacket and trousers/tie.

I usually wear a pair of chinos, a shirt with 4 pockets (I had a bunch made, specifically for flying) and a hoodie. I love flying in a hoodie, I just pull the hood up and go to sleep.

On my last trip, I wore a gray chalkstripe suit on the flight out. On the way back, a bit worse for wear, it was a white button-up shirt with dark jeans.

You've just given me one of those "duh, why didn't I think of that" moments!

Hard liquor is absolutely essential. The airline booze is of poor quality and hugely overpriced. A flask is fine for domestic but I bring a 750ml or 1L bottle for any flight longer than five hours. Bringing your own food is nice too.

I don't drink on flights myself. But if I were, I'd bring my own food at least. Usually drinks are free, no? And they have a decent selection of blended whiskey and vodka.

where does one fly from Texas that is more than 5 hours and does not offer free drinks? all international flights have free alcohol (unless things very different in the US), and domestically, isnt everything within a 5 hour radius of Texas?
