Capital Ken: Travel Accessories

Hello! I’m happy to be back doing another guest post for Kelsey. This week, I have concentrated on pieces for your man who is “on the go.” The first items are briefcases. I like this first one as I believe it is a classic look – not too casual but not too stuffy.

Kenneth Cole, A Brief History, $70

With this next one, you can be right in style, but still stand out from the crowd. These are showing up in a lot of ads, probably due to the popularity of the television show, “Mad Men.” Instead of the typical black, why not consider aluminum? 

Aluminum Notebook Laptop Computer Travel Briefcase Executive Attache, $39

I wanted to include this next one because these “loose” handles are very popular right now. This one is a simple design for nearly any professional. 

Mercury Luggage Signature Portfolio with Shoulder Straps, $43

Finally, for a little color and for those of you who might be looking for a bag with less structure, this is a terrific option with several color options. I like the saddle color, as I feel it goes with almost everything. 

As an added feature, I wanted to add a few travel accessories. If your man is on the go a lot, as I am, there are a few items that might make his life on the road a bit easier. The first is a travel tray. It might not sound like a necessity, but it certainly helps in a strange hotel room to keep change, keys, wallet, etc., in ONE place. This one unsnaps at the corners to lie flat for packing.

And finally, this is a great piece to pack just in case the loafers are expected to trudge through any climates with bad weather. Road salt can ruin even the finest leather. And, this mini kit won’t take up too much room.
