Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: The Best Travel-Friendly Clothing for Men


When buying men’s clothing as a gift, consider pieces that would work well in the variety of environments the recipient might find themselves in. Those looking for gifts for a traveler in their life would do well to choose from pieces and silhouettes that can be easily wrapped and versatile enough to mix and match with different outfits.

Athleisure, loungewear and sportswear naturally fall into this category. But you can also consider pieces that can be layered for extra warmth and comfort, like work jackets or zip-up fleece jackets. From Alo and Cozy Earth to APC and Suicoke, here’s an eclectic selection of the 10 best travel-friendly men’s clothes to consider for Valentine’s Day — and beyond.

Adrian t-shirt by APC
