Travel Essentials For Men

17th December 2019
Summertime travel is a constant shift between sun-soaked languor and crackling energy. What you pack must therefore cater for all kinds of occasions, from spontaneous action to tranquil rest. Your clothes and accessories should strike the perfect balance between everyday, versatile essentials and playful items that inject personality into your holiday look. Wherever you’re going, travel in style with our key Gunn Guy travel essentials for men.




High quality men’s luggage isn’t just a luxury, but an investment. The right bag will only get better with age, and be by your side for every adventure in the world.
The aim of the game is to choose functional, sophisticated luggage you can depend on. Create a capsule collection with these men’s luggage bags:

The Large Weekender

The Large Weekender is the ideal men’s leather overnight bag. It boasts a classic and timeless design, with two handles, a shoulder strap and a zippered closure. Available in chocolate with internal pockets inside to store your travel essentials, this is the best selling piece in our leather luggage range, and it’s no wonder why.

The Quay Street Briefcase

Do you travel often for business? Made with beautiful, buttery-soft leather, the Quay Street Briefcase will make the right impression at every meeting. With multiple compartments, it’s the ideal size for carrying a laptop, as well as files, chargers and other items for your work day. It features a shoulder strap and a plaid lining to protect your belongings.

The Richmond Road Duffle

A duffle is the men’s travel bag of choice for day trips or weekends away when you need a light alternative. Crafted from rugged cotton canvas, the Richmond Road Duffle Bag ticks every box. It’s cleverly designed to maximise space, without compromising on style.




Personalisation adds polish to any product. Turn a classic item like the Gunn Polo or Signature Cap into a truly unique statement piece with a tasteful, timeless monogram.




Take the road less travelled with shoes that are supportive and stylish. Pack shoes to suit both casual and formal occasions and step out with confidence.

These are our go-to shoes for a men’s minimalist travel wardrobe:

The Quail Island Boat Shoe

Perfect for any mode of transportation, the Quail Island Boat Shoe is the ultimate summer shoe. Available in six colours, the leather upper is stitched through the durable rubber outsole and is complemented by leather laces and gold eyelets.

The Glone Sneaker

The Glone Sneaker stands out for its unique brass eyelets that you might associate with your favourite pair of hiking boots. It’s available in three striking colours — navy, ash and bourbon — and each pair features taupe laces and a chunky white sole. The statement sneaker is lined with leather and has a padded collar for comfort.

The Day Street Sandal

For those balmy summer days, it’s hard to go past a men’s leather sandal like the Day Street Sandal. The emerald sandal is simple, with two wide leather straps across the foot and a heel strap. The upper design is replete with two leather straps over the top of the foot and a heel strap with velcro adjustability for additional comfort.
