Staying Dapper while Travelling

Staying Dappered and Classy isn’t always the easiest thing to do when traveling, even I sometimes just don’t want to put the effort into staying gentlemanly, but come on gentlemen we can’t be hoodlums and dropouts here. Were adult grown men, we have jobs and wives/women, we have to dress for success you never know what might happen when traveling. You could be hanging out in a Hostel or Hotel and meet a potential business partner or Job opportunity, and do you want the first thing you do to be to give that person the impression that your not professional and smart. That your not intellectual and educated that you cant dress yourself. To bring all that together here we go, staying simple and not complicated, Light and not Heavy. One BAG, that’s right only One. All on a budget and affordable.

    1. Hey Geogrina! We just got to Melbourne a little bit ago, we were in Newcastle for a week and we’ll be here another week. Then next week we’ll be in the Blue Mountains for a couple of days and then finish our stay off in Sydney. Will hopefully do a blog post or two, and upload some pictures and stop slacking.
