What to Wear: A Day in the Country

wear day country dayincountry
What better way to spend a Saturday during autumn with a day in the country? Call up your friends, grab your car, and go look for some farm-fresh produce, cheeses and local brews. Maybe rent a cabin,  have a lovely fresh dinner at a farm-to-table restaurant and most importantly, get a whiff of that fresh country air. Hell yeah!

We suggest a flannel shirt to keep you warm and comfortable. Layer a sturdy cardigan over it and bring a jacket — just in case it gets frigid at night. Sport some jeans that can take a beating, and don’t forget to select a pair of boots that are both durable and stylish. There you have it — an ensemble fit for chasing chickens and hiking trails.

What to Wear on a Red-Eye Flight

Sometimes the red-eye flight is the best option, sometimes it’s the only option, and when you live on the West Coast and need to get to the East Coast, it’s what you do. There really isn’t anything comfortable about travel these days, and aside from paying a premium for better seating, your only option comes down to how you handle yourself when you do travel. You should look put together for any number of reasons, and shouldn’t be wearing the same outfit you wear every Sunday during football season, all season, without a wash. Lucky for you, there are clothing and accessories out there suited for red-eye travel, providing comfort and style.
