We’ve all been there: You’ve got a business meeting and will be coming straight from the airport. You’ve been up since 5 AM dealing with taxis, a bumpy flight and waiting in line. And now you need to make a dynamite first impression on a prospective new client.
No problem: Whether you’re scheduled for a boardroom presentation or a casual lunch, our performance pieces will ensure that on your next business trip you arrive in style.
The following are three scenarios with various levels of formality and great looking clothes that will keep you wrinkle-free, stain-free, and crisp and dry. As the saying goes, never let ‘em see you sweat.
1. Formal Meeting
Performance doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality or style. Perfect example: our Wrinkle and Stain Resistant Performance Suit. Pair it with any of our non-iron dress shirts to stay looking sharp no matter what wild cards your trip throws at you.
2. Business Casual
When a suit is not required but you need a jacket to command respect, go for our Performance Blazer with wrinkle and stain resistance. In addition to navy, it comes in black, tan, and other seasonal alternatives. Pair it with our Performance Gabardine Trousers in Super 110s wool with stain and wrinkle protection plus expandable waistband for comfort on the plane ride home.
If your business meeting is taking place in box seats at the ballpark, we’ve got some great suggestions. Start with our Performance Supima Trousers in cotton that’s tough on wrinkles and stains but with all the softness of pima cotton. For a more elegant drape, try our Microfiber Trousers with the same performance benefits. Both pair admirably with our Cotton Short Sleeve Polo that not only resists wrinkles and stains, but wicks moisture away from your skin.
Another benefit of looking sharp on a business trip: Well dressed fliers tend to get better service — and sometimes free upgrades. Now that’s something worth a little extra effort.
