What do you wear on long flights? - Page 3

post #31 of 53
If a daytime flight, jeans and a v neck sweater. If an overnight, CX F class pajamas.

To those of you who wear garbage on flights; who would you rather sit next to, an asshole in smelly sweatpants or a person in big boy/girl clothes?

Here's another question along a similar line. What does one wear on a 24-36 hour train or bus journey? If one wants to change in private, it normally means using a stinking dirty public toilet.

Why would sweatpants be smelly? If they're clean and freshly laundered they shouldn't stink.

Is anyone willing to be wearing a suit, dress shirt, tie and formal shoes for 24+ hours, including sleeping and without changing?

Bearing in mind a long haul flight, might be travelling to the airport, waiting for several hours in the terminal, maybe 12-16 hours on the plane, and then possible onwards travel upon arriving at the destination. The flight could be delayed/cancelled as well.

Whoever takes up less space and doesn't try to talk to me.

In my experience, fat people always wear sweatpants. So please to answer my question.

what i wear TO the flight is the same thing i wear to work, which is more or less the same thing i wear at home/on weekends. i.e, my everyday dress.

what i wear ON the flight are the airline-provided pyjamas, of course.... fav being lufthansa's van laack

In my experience, your posts are pretty terrible. I already did.

If I'm taking a suit or sport coat I'll wear it on the plane with my big boy shoes.

Casual clothes are smaller and lighter so they fit more easily into a carry on.
If checking a bag, they're also less expensive in case it gets lost and less critical in case it gets delayed.
Plus a flight attendant will hang the coat for me so that's less wrinkles than packing.
Looks good, feels good.

I often see people wearing sunglasses inside planes at night wtf?

My wife suffers from dry eye and wearing glasses helps. Cabin atmosphere is quite dry. They might also want darkness undisturbed by an LCD screen or overhead light being turned on. DUH

I fear the day I'm on a booked flight and some leviathan decides to free up his toesies on a long flight. You might see me on the news that day.

So much hostility towards fatties.

I wear pajamas on long haul flights AND I take off my shoes. I am not fat. Deal with it.

I sometimes have another word for fatties on planes, space invaders, Because they're invading my space. Some might be so fat that they take up two seats. A person should be able to sit in the standard economy seat with the arm rests down, if they can't, charge them double fare.

Airlines should charge by weight. After all, it uses more fuel and costs more money to haul a fatass than it does my 135lb frame.

What makes a flight so different?

Yeah I always wear jeans with either a comfy brushed flannel / plaid or if I have something more formal after the flight then a ocbd. On longer flights I'll have a black vneck underneath and just take off the shirt and put a knit on to sleep. Always take my shoes off, try to wear something that slips on easy off like mocs or boat shoes and have socks to put on when I'm taking my shoes off. My long hauls should offer those foam sandals so you can wear those around and to the bathroom. I've flown a good amount my whole life and when I was a kid I always had to do shorts to be comfy. Now I can suck it up a bit. And if your jeans fit well it shouldn't be an issue. I probably pass out at least twice a month with my jeans on.

An unstructured blazer is always really nice as well since you have something to wear that looks decent but is also comfy.

I also run into someone I know at the airport like 75% of the time going to / from school and it's better to look decent than like shit. Don't want to run into a girl I like or someones Dad/Mom who's more connecting in sweats.

Depends where the train / bus is. In Nepal I wear a tee with jeans a hoodie, and boots and in Europe I'd wear what I mentioned up above. Asia depends on where the train is, Japan could easily be suit.

Of those explanations the only valid is dry eyes, otherwise it would be more comfortable to wear a blindfold/eyemask.

I usually wear whatever outerwear is going to be approriate for where im going, some jeans (nothing to tight if its a long flight) and a tshirt with a zip up sweater over it. I always take off my shoes as soon as I sit down and I try to pass out before the plane takes off if I can help it. I usually bring a neck pillow too.
