Smarter Travel through Technology

When is a t-shirt not just a t-shirt? What makes jeans more than mere jeans? And what allows a simple white shirt to transcend the ordinary? When everyday classic styles are infused with smart technology borrowed from sportswear and technical performance clothing, the result is a wardrobe uniquely suited to withstand the rigors of travel.

Our design team lives and breathes smart fabrics and road-worthy design modifications. They are charged with taking the styles that we all love to wear on the road – classic, comfortable styles, with great versatility – and redesigning them to be smarter travelers. They add clever pockets, secure closures and collars designed to survive washing in a hotel sink. Then they have them made from the latest performance fabrics for subtle changes that add up to big benefits on the road.

Here are some of our favorite fabric and travel technologies:

No-Iron Wrinkle Resistance

We’ve designed these styles specifically to emerge straight from your suitcase with nary a wrinkle – from comfortable crinkle styles, to smooth no-iron cotton shirts.

Stain Resistance & Nano-Tex®

Everybody likes a crisp white shirt, but they can be hard to travel with because they show every last stain. We’ve worked with specialty textile designers to develop styles that repel just about any stain you might encounter – so you can wear white without fear.

Moisture Wicking CoolMax®

A long time favorite around TravelSmith, CoolMax moisture wicking technology keeps you cool even in the hottest, stickiest heat by pulling moisture away from your skin so you stay dry and cool.

Quick-Dry Technology

Light packers love these styles that you can wash in the hotel sink, and will dry overnight (or quicker), ready for another go-round.

Sun Protection

Save your skin without sticky sprays or creams. These fabrics have built in protection up to 40 UPF that won’t wash off and does not need time to set before you enjoy the sunshine.

Insect Repellant

Keep biting bugs at bay with active wear designed with odorless, invisible insect repellant built right into the fabric.

Security Pockets

Classic styles with hidden, zippered or Velcro®-closure pockets help you protect your valuables while you travel, without drawing un-wanted attention to yourself.

Hidden Slimming Panels

Our secret slimming panels let you feel a little more sleek and sophisticated as you travel – built in to everything from our classic travel jeans, to flattering swimwear, to our favorite dresses and skirts.

Ultra-Packable Lightweights

These days packing light is as much a matter of practical necessity as it is a choice – so we’ve designed styles of ultra-lightweight fabrics to pack perfectly and take up the absolute minimum space, while still letting you travel with a full wardrobe.
