Lately there was a heated debate on linkedin about the outfit to have when you travel. The author of the post – a sales rep – was showing a photo of himself with two colleagues in a plane. All had perfect smiles, crisp shirts and blue/grey ties.
Numerous comments lamented that “people fly in pyjamas and flip flops these days!” as they put it. They argued that your next client or next employer, might be the person seating next to you at the airport, in the plane, at Starbucks. And you surely don’t want to miss an opportunity because you have no etiquette.
The other half of the comments argued that in the face of “anti-comfort trends in the today’s air industry (less legroom, smaller seats, etc.)“, your travel will be a misery if you fly all-dressed up. Casual wear was their preference.
What’s your opinion? What’s your preferred outfit when you travel?
