Clothes while flying... - Page 3

post #31 of 39
(1) I think people should just worry about the way they look and not give a crap about how others are dressed. I don't really see the point in that.

(2) Elaborating on (1) you have no idea why these people are wearing what they are. I am going to be making a 6 week trip in August/September to London, SE Asia, and Hong Kong with just a carryon backpack. I'll tell you what isn't going to get packed in there and that is a sport coat/suit. I'll wear a pair of khaki pants or shorts and a polo on the flight.

Grandma always tells me to dress up when i fly. Quite a few times she has had her ticket upgraded just because she was in a suit.

The longer the flight the more casual the clothing - if I am in First or Business class and I'm sleeping, it won't be in a suit...now I won't be seen in a gym suit either; blue jeans a nice pair of casual shoes and a wrinkle resistant button down are the most casual I'd ever get. Just me...

OCBD Sweater Corduroy Sportcoat Jeans Loafers The corduroy sportcoat is completely unstructured so I don't have to worry about it being crushed or getting wrinkled and it's warm enough with the sweater under it for even the coldest flights.

For us Brits now residing in the Antipodes and facing a plus 24 hour flight to get back home on a regular basis, comfort is not just the main but the only priority. For the first time, on my way back to Oz from Heathrow last month, I changed into jogging bottoms ('sweats' for the Yanks, I believe) on the plane. I felt bad about it for about 10 minutes until I realised that I wasn't going have to excavate a wedgie every hour or so. If I can find something more aesthetically acceptable that's close to being as comfortable in time for my next trip next month, I will gladly wear that.
Strikes me that there's a considerable gap in the market for clothes for travelling that don't look terrible (only seems to be Rohan-style stuff), particularly strides.
As for dressing up for travelling, anyone donning a suit especially for an economy class flight from Sydney to Heathrow or Auckland to LA is either 'a bit of a chief' or in need of help, IMHO.

I generally travel in running sneakers and sweat pants.

It would be great to wear something casual while flying, but for for most, flying is associated with doing business in various cities. It's better to be dressed well even while flying because you never know who might be watching, that's why we make sure our master fitters wear their best suits while flying as well.

That's why it's always better to be well-dressed.
