LONDON, Mar 25, 2009 / FW/ — With video conferencing, text messaging and email, one would assume that we would be traveling less. But, on the contrary, travel is becoming an ever-increasing part of business, with managers and executives taking more than 12 flights and spending a total of 70 days on foreign work trips every year according to a UK survey by the NOP, up by 2 days compared to 2005.
Responding to the business people’s need of keeping their sartorial standards while avoiding creased and crumpled work attire while they are on business trips, Thomas Pink designed The Traveller, a versatile shirt that is designed to keep in step with your day – from early morning commute to late night meeting.
Made from premium two-fold cotton, The Traveller incorporates a special easy care finish. This results in a shirt that is crease resistant yet still retains that all important soft feel and signature Thomas Pink detailing. After all, why should practicality mean compromising on quality?
And because we believe in the finer details, The Traveller comes in Classic and Slimfit styles and sports a breast pocket to keep essential documents safe.
Jonathan Heilbron, CEO of Thomas Pink says that The Traveller is the wardrobe equivalent of the iPhone, Thomas Pink’s new interpretation of ‘smart’ work wear.
Fusing technology with sartorial style, it is designed to cope with the demands of the modern business day. And with ever tightening budgets in mind, we have worked hard to ensure that quality like this can also come at an affordable price.
Perfect for wear from boarding to boardroom, The Traveller is available from Thomas Pink stores nationwide from 23 March 2009 for GBP49.
