18 May Travel Blazer – The Perfect Comfort and Style Combination
It’s rare that anyone gets dressed up to travel anymore. And with good reason: once glamorous air travel is now kind of a hassle, as travelers fight for overhead bin space and cram into increasingly tiny seats. Even if you’re traveling for business, the thought of getting decked out in formal attire can be exhausting.
Thankfully, menswear brand Bluffworks has set out to solve this problem with clothing that melds technical performance with office-appropriate style. Bluffworks was founded by Stefan Loble when he worked for a software company. In his spare time, he loved traveling and sought clothing that could keep up with his lifestyle whether he was in the office or on vacation. He launched the company on Kickstarter to great success.
Bluffworks pieces are lightweight and made with moisture wicking, breathable, and wrinkle-resistant materials so you can look on top of your game while you’re on the go. You’ll also be able to easily stay organized as you’re rushing to catch your connecting flight, with hidden security pockets and nooks designed to fit your phone or passport. Perhaps most importantly, all of Bluffworks items can be machine-washed, meaning regular (and expensive) post-business travel trips to the dry cleaners are a thing of the past.
The most recent Bluffworks item to hit the digital rack is the Gramercy Blazer ($295), a comfy and breathable blazer with 10 convenient internal pockets. It looks and feels like wool, but it’s lightweight and wrinkle-resistant. After launching on Kickstarter and raising more than $340,000, the Gramercy Blazer received rave reviews from customers. According to one shopper, it’s “seriously a work of art in engineering and design” while another says, “this blazer is pretty darn amazing. Whether it is a full day of work, or out to dinner the blazer still looks flawless at the end of the day. I no longer take it off when driving my car, or sitting at my desk.”
