2. Weekend Trip
Though fair isle sweaters are usually considered a dressier addition to an outfit, they don’t always have to be. They are great to dress down, as they give a bit of color to a fairly simple and casual outfit.
This is a look I wore recently traveling upstate to go hunting. These are all incredibly comfortable pieces, ideal for sitting in a car for a couple of hours.
A “shacket” (as previously featured here) is perfect for those sneaky warm days in Fall.
Invest in a good rugged duffle bag. I’ve had this baby from Orvis for a couple years now and I can’t imagine traveling without it. It’s small enough to qualify as a carry-on but large enough to fit a week’s worth of clothes.
It’s also sturdy as hell, so I don’t have to baby it or think twice about slinging it into the back of a dirty pickup truck.
