ADVERTORIAL • November 2023
Classic, inventive, iconic – Paul Smith’s A Suit to Travel In will effortlessly elevate your in-flight style. Who knew practicality and comfort could look this good? Think of it as the perfect travel companion: poised, pulled-together and always ready for take-off…
Flight? What flight? Wrinkles and crumples are a thing of the past thanks to this suit’s crease-resistance fabric. The secret lies in the innovative quick-recovery, high-twist yarn, which reduces wrinkling and withstands creases – even after several hours at 36,000 feet – whether on your person or in your suitcase. You – and your suit – will arrive looking as immaculate as you did upon departure.
You wouldn’t usually associate the words ‘drawstring waist’ with sleek style but, in the hands of Paul Smith, it’s no longer an oxymoron. A Suit to Travel In trousers are designed with a low-rise, drawstring waist and a slightly relaxed fit through the thigh for extra comfort during long flights. Or, indeed, lengthy meetings.
Effortlessly debonair, instinctively stylish and a modern icon is a description that can be applied not only to Sir Paul Smith and his tailoring, but to British actor Matt Smith. Former Doctor Who, Prince Philip in The Crown – and now the face of Paul Smith. Matt knows all about being a frequent flyer – and has the perfect suit for this role. True British classics, all round.

The suit has been rigorously tested, but perhaps not in the way you might anticipate. When it was launched in 2015, Olympic-gold-medal-winning gymnast Matt Whitlock took it for a spin. This suit twisted, turned, and tumbled on the pommel horse – and passed with flying colours. There wasn’t a crease or a wrinkle in sight. It’s also been taken for a run, courtesy of champion freerunner Timothy Shieff and emerged unscathed from an encounter with yoga instructor Shona Vertue.
When travelling, you need the essentials within reach: phone, wallet, ticket, passport. Nobody wants to be the person scrabbling for their travel documents at the check-in desk. Which is why this made-for-travelling suit has been designed with multiple, discreet pockets: flattering angled pockets at the front; buttoned pockets at the back. Clever stuff.
Whatever the weather at your destination, Paul Smith has the tailoring to suit (pun unintended but accurate). A Suit to Travel is available in tailored or slim fits and different colours and fabric weights. And for the ultimate in flexibility – because you make the sartorial rules, not your clothes – the suit is available to purchase as both a two-piece and as separates. So you can mix and match them at will, and they’ll integrate seamlessly into your wardrobe.
