The Best Travel Suits of 2022 To Keep You Fresh On The Go
If you still associate dress clothes with clothes that are uncomfortable, you’re doing it wrong. Your suit should be your go-to outfit for the office – something you look forward to wearing. As comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans but looks even sharper and snappier. And when you’re constantly on the go, catching cabs, trains, and red-eye flights as a part of work (or pleasure), a good travel suit becomes even more important.
You don’t want to be sitting in a tight, uncomfortable suit for several hours, only to get up and head to work or a meeting with wrinkles and creases all over it. And you certainly don’t want to sweat through it as you head to the gate. That’s where travel suits come in. Grab one of these, pair it with some smart, functional luggage, and you’ll be traveling in pure crease-free comfort. Here are some of the best travel suits that will suit your constantly on-the-go lifestyle, now updated for 2022!
Gear For Life Top Picks For Best Travel Suits of 2022
Ministry of Supply was another original in the Performance Dress Clothing scene, and they garnered the top spot for our 2020 list. The Velocity Suit Jacket uses a 61% polyester, 33% viscose, and 6% spandex blend for 4-way stretch and resilience and total wrinkle resistance. It is semi-lined to allow for more freedom and movement. A curved back yoke allows for a more comfortable, athletic shoulder fit. And it’s machine-washable, so cleaning on the road is a breeze. So far, it only comes in Black and Charcoal.
We look forward to seeing it in Navy or Blue when the time comes.
Ministry of Supply was an easy pick in the top spot with their Velocity Suit. However, the introduction of the Kinetic Blazer was a pleasant surprise addition to our top picks for 2020. The classic unlined fit, 100% Primeflex Japanese Polyester fabric, allows unrestricted movement with a 4-way stretch while also being machine washable and water-resistant.
An expanded color line features Indigo Heather, Gray Heather, Charcoal Heather, Navy, and Black. You can’t go wrong with the Ministry of Supply and their 100-day free return policy!
2022 Honorable Mentions
We weren’t familiar with Bluffworks until we saw this suit, but they are a travel-oriented clothing brand that looks like they know what they are doing. They barely missed the top spot for our 2020 pick for the best travel suit.
The Gramercy Travel Suit is made from a lightweight, 100% polyester fabric that is breathable and quick-drying, makes it a breeze to wear on the road, resists wrinkles and creases, and is entirely machine-washable – something your usual work outfit isn’t.
The back is lined, but the sleeves aren’t. And there are ten total pockets for stashing all your gear. If you’re looking for something just a bit more casual but every bit as comfortable, the Bluffworks Travel Suit fits the bill. And will cut down on some dry-cleaning bills.
Hugo Boss has a long history of stylish men’s suits. The Packable Slim Fit Blazer features a stretch fabric using 100% Polyester, making it comfortable and essentially wrinkle-free. It’s a single-breasted jacket with a slim fit and smooth lining.
Unfortunately, at the moment, the Black is the only color option, but that pairs well with slacks or jeans for a sharp everyday travel option.
One of the most popular travel suits out there – English fashion designer Paul Smith created A Suit To Travel In, a classy wool suit in an elegant SoHo Slim Fit – a look slightly more blocky and English than Armani, for example, but still stylishly slim.
The jacket is wool with a viscose lining, and has been treated as crease-resistant, so it can be stashed in your suitcase and worn the same day, without needing a trip to the dry cleaners. And it’s made in Italy. Cheap? Nope. Versatile and stylish? Indeed.
A sub-$500 suit from Nordstrom? Sign us up, please. This solid navy suit is made from Tech-SmartWool, essentially 98% wool and 2% spandex, for a stretchy, breathable material that doesn’t crease and is supremely comfortable even on long-haul flights.
There are a whole bunch of nifty additions, like a comfort-stretch waistband. Inside, Nordstrom has included a bunch of extra pockets (11 in total, including the regular suit pockets) so you can stash items easily on the go. The pants come unhemmed, but Nordstrom will hem them for free at any store. And that Trim Fit looks baller.
While M.J. Bale’s Superfine Merino Suits may not be your traditional travel suit, the Australian brand claims they are more than cut out for it. A few years ago, they embarked on a round-the-globe trek to demonstrate how durable and comfortable these suits are. M.J. Bale suits come in different cuts and forms, but their Superfine suits are cool, comfortable, and supremely soft – 99% Superfine virgin wool and 1% elastane. We think they deserve a spot on this list. They’re distinctly Australian, too.
We had no idea Brooks Brothers made a breathable, travel suit, but they do. The BrooksCool suit is made from a wool/poly/Lycra blend, which means it’s stretchy, breathable, and super-comfy and is both wrinkle and water-resistant. And that’s also looking as classy as you would expect from a Brooks Brothers suit. Slim cut, slim lapel, and side vents.
What’s that? Only the best for you, even when on the go? Burberry hears you. They made this wool suit part of the Travel Tailoring collection, which uses a special blend of “memory fabrics” to flex the body and remain light and breathable the whole time.
The shell is 100% traditional wool, the 100% wool, and the jacket lining is 94% cupro and 6% elastane. (Cupro is a recycled cellulose material frequently used to create beautifully-draping clothes). Slim and classy, with Melton undercollar and notch lapels. Exactly what you would expect from Burberry, with some modern touches.
The J. Crew Ludlow is an all-around winner no matter what, and the fact they’ve made a travel version of the slim-fitting suit makes it all the better in our book. The Ludlow Traveler Suit is made from special three-ply wool woven in the famous Tollegno mill, with a special twist that makes them more elastic and resistant to wrinkling and creasing.
A light, partial Bemberg lining makes it more breathable when you might work up a sweat – so it’s suitable for the summer heat, too. Lastly, mix and match it with the athletic Crosby Suit to get the fit that works for you.
Tough to forget Bonobos. They were one of the first clothiers to be making travel clothes that still looked stylish, and while the Jetsetter may not be as travel-oriented as some of the others on this list, it works just as well – hence the name.
The Jetsetter is made from a 98% wool, 2% elastane blend that feels like your typical 4-season weight, but doesn’t get as wrinkled and breathes more easily, making it perfect for sitting all day on the plane. The jacket comes in Slim, Standard, and Athletic, while the pants come in those three plus a Tailored option and any size, you could need. Fit is Bonobos’ thing. Gorgeous and stretchy.
The Havana Traveller Suit uses 100% Wool Traveller fabric, woven by Lanificio Cerruti in Italy. It’s slim, un-structured, and casual, while remaining sharp and classy for when you need it. Havana uses a Natural Shoulder, unpadded and designed to follow the body’s natural curves. Whatever you want to wear with it will look good as a full suit or a sport coat, and take you straight from the train to the office, and everywhere between.
