Fall and Winter Men’s Apparel Essentials
Alright gentlemen, or ladies shopping for gentlemen, I (Geoff) have put together a list of some cold weather essentials for the traveller. If you’re planning a Fall or Winter trip, your luggage is going to get pretty full pretty quick. Fall and winter clothing is bulky, so you’ll want items that are multi-functional, like a pullover sweater that will look just as good with jeans as it does with dressier pants (trousers for my UK friends). You’ll also want to think in layers, thermal, base and outer depending on where you’re going and how long you’ll be outside for. If the sun comes out, you can take a layer off and still be protected and warm enough. Here is a curated list to help you find the right apparel to take with you.
For the Head

For the Hands and Feet
3m Thinsulate Thermal Lined Winter Gloves
Size: S/M M/L
Keep those digits toasty warm on you trip this winter. Handsome, snug, knitted with thermal lining on the inside. I had these for a winer in Prague and they were wonderful.
Columbia Men's M Thermarator Gloves
Geoff’s Pick – These are my choice because I am always looking at maps or opening information apps on my phone when we’re travelling. The last thing I want to do when it’s cold and windy is take off my gloves so I can find where I’m going!
Dickies 2 Pack Acrylic Thermal Boot Socks
Geoff’s Pick – Warm and soft but not too thick. Wear them with shoes or boots, great quality. Very comfortable, they come up just over mid-calf.
