Samuel Hubbard: Where Business Meets Comfort

Their mother was a sneaker, their father was a dress shoe. Comfort engineering is at the heart of how Samuel Hubbard designs and builds their shoes.  They are uncompromising in their choice of materials and construction, offering shoes of the utmost quality. The Foursome is proud to introduce these ridiculously comfortable shoes into our menswear collection:

Hubbard Free, the “un-sneaker”  These shoes are designed for the active lifestyle. The performance elements of the Hubbard Free are inspired by athletic shoes, but the look is a classic leather shoe. Available in three colors.

Travel Series, Part 1: Vacation Fly Away

SPRING13TB5_lo

Do you ever pity your suitcase? Poor thing. You jam it full and sit on it, ooching the zipper shut and weighing it 9 times before the scale reaches not one ounce less than 50lbs, all the while hoping it does not split at the seams en route. Needless to say, practical packing is a great skill to acquire. So lets explore some space saving, travel friendly, versatile vacation wear to bring on your next getaway.

We should adopt a travel appropriate principle: Less is more. Wearing things twice is no faux pas, though I am not necessarily suggesting wearing the exact same outfit twice. So be creative in pairing different tops with bottoms and creating various looks with the same elements. Roll up your sleeves and loosen a few buttons for lunch and then tighten up the same shirt and throw on a soft shouldered sportcoat for dinner the next night.

My top Tommy Bahama Picks:

1. Pocket T-shirt – Pick a color, any color. Wear them alone or layered

2. Flipster 1/4 Zip– Perfect for traveling. Two tops for the space of one. A great item to wear on the plane.

3. Linen Suit – Buy the coat and pants separate or the whole shebang. Pair the coat with denim or colored chinos for a different look. You’ll fit in at any restaurant in this perfect cross between casual and formal.

4. Linen Plaid Shorts in Haze – Breathable, sophisticated, casual. Buy linen in every shape and form.

6. Canvas Fold-out Dopp Kit – Keep your toiletries contained and organized in your suitcase

Additional Packing Tips

  • Check the 7-day forecast before you pack
  • Roll your clothes, it limits wrinkles and saves space
  • Don’t pack for the worst scenario, pack for the best
  • Wear your thickest layer on the plane rather than packing it
  • Pack just enough toiletries to get you started and buy the rest when you get there
  • Don’t weigh yourself down with extra shoe options
  • Check your suitcase weight before you leave the house

Healthy Travel Snacks

  • Hard boiled eggs = compact protein
  • Dried fruit and nut mix = salty and sweet pick-me-up
  • Rice cakes = light weight and low calorie
  • Apple = keep the doctor away
  • Green tea bags = energy boost along the way

May your packing be light, your journey adventurous, and your vacation as free as the wind. Soak up the sun and Bon Voyage!
