 This unfussy single-breasted Chester Barrie suit is rendered in a mid-blue marle and can be dressed up or down. Pair with a complementary and equally versatile tie and crisp white shirt.

Instead of packing a heavy overcoat – cumbersome in both weight and ease of stowage – a long lightweight jacket that’s waterproof and insulating is all your short-haul wardrobe needs. The water-resistant Grenfell Windsor jacket is ideal for combating unexpected showers, as are leather slip-ons and a protective cover for your passport.

Having a considered carry-all to accompany your travels can make a stressful journey much less so. This patterned satchel by Mark/Giusti is more than your average laptop bag, with an exterior pouch, convenient backstrap and interior pockets for stowing all your essentials.
