    I am actually looking at buying the women's one, not the men's, but I was hoping that people here would have some feedback as to how this collection (at least for the men's) wears over time.

    I need a new suit and would like to upgrade from my existing Theory and Boss ones, which have been okay over the past 3 years. I have a pair of Paul Smith pants that have worn well over time, but not from this travel collection. I guess my real concern is whether the traveler's suits are more likely shine, wear out faster etc.

    I have a suit from Paul Smith "A Suit to Travel in" collection and it's very durable and comfortable. It's canvassed and the high-twist wool is crease resistant. How soon it'll wear out or shine depends on how frequently you wear and clean it. Mine has 10% mohair that has a natural subtle shine. If you don't like it you can get 100% wool.
