In keeping with our preference to ‘pack light, pack right' for travel, each item we take has to really earn its place in our suitcase.
If a piece only goes with one outfit, or suits one occasion, or doesn't wear well enough for more than one day – it won't make the cut.
Our most-loved are those truly versatile, ‘wear with anything' pieces, so it's no surprise we are fans of Madda Fella's menswear, including the Castaway Collection below.
This shirt ticks all our boxes, you really can't go wrong. The vintage inspiration means it always looks smart, but the relaxed cut and soft double-brushed cotton mean comfort is guaranteed too.
Loose and airy, you can roll the sleeves up on a balmy evening or layer over a t-shirt in a chilly breeze. Throw it on over your beachwear for sun protection or as a lunchtime cover-up. Team it with jeans, chinos, shorts…the possibilities are endless.
Perfect for the beach, city breaks, cruising and more, it's hard to think when you couldn't wear this!
Made from double-brushed soft cotton, we love this hoodie for those cooler days or evenings when you just need that extra layer.
Lightweight, it's a definite ‘summer' hoodie yet lacks nothing in comfort. It would be perfect to travel in, and it rolls up snugly when you need to pack it or throw it in your backpack.
The chest and sleeve buttons mean you can customize the fit as the temperature changes so it transitions really well from day to evening.
You could wear it anywhere, but we think it would really fit the bill on a cruise as it's always chilly when you're at sea, even in hotter climates.
Castaway Drawstring Short
These Castaways are designed to be that pair of shorts you can live in every day.
Perfect for the beach, wandering around the town or just lounging at home, they're the ultimate in comfort when you don't need or want to try too hard.
A flattering length with practical pockets, you can match them with a t-shirt or button down, flip-flops or brogues and you know they'll look great.
