Traveling is tiring. Having been on the road for an entire month now, I'm speaking from experience. Even when you try to rest and take it easy, there's just something about travel that takes a lot out of you – both physically and mentally. That lack of mental energy often results in not having the capacity to think much (or at all) about putting something solid together to wear. That's why it's important to pack smart and stick to the basics. Here's a look from when Rob and I were out and about in Minneapolis. VIEW MORE ▶︎

I love the idea of a uniform, especially when it comes to menswear, but there are times when I like to stand apart, just a bit but not too much. VIEW MORE ▶︎

Simple, no-nonsense, no-brainer. Everyone's got to have something in their back pocket for those days when there's a quick turnaround necessary from the time you wake up to when you need to step (or rush) out the door. For me, that's a combination of a few great basics like a well-fitted button-down and worn-in pair of denim matched with classic items like a waistcoat, tie, and jacket in winter-weight fabrics.

One of the challenges of traveling so much is making sure we've got content in the can, which means we'll shoot as much as possible before long trips like the one we've been on. Today's look is one that we shot prior to leaving and mixes up a few of my favorite fall fabrics. VIEW MORE ▶︎
