TravelSmith...does anyone buy their clothes?
Has anyone bought from them and are you satisfied?

I just received Travel Smith's catalog and although the clothes are little expensive, I was wondering if they are even worth the money.

I do a lot of cruising to the Caribbean and also some land trips and like the idea of lightweight, wrinkle-free clothing. Right now, I try and buy things that don't wrinkle, but they are not always light-weight.

I thought if you can get a wardrobe going with this type of clothing, it will take the stress out of travelling and I they claim the clothing takes up alot less space in your suitcase.

Would love to know if anyone likes their clothing and why?

I bought a few knit type shirts for my husband from Travelsmith and he loves them. They really do NOT wrinkle! I haven't bought anything for myself from them, but now that you brought it up, I may just meander to their website and have a look around.

The clothes are expensive, but well worth it, IMO. Very well made and lots of nice neutral colors to co-ordinate with. Have fun shopping!

Re: TravelSmith...does anyone buy their clothes?
I was fortunate a few years ago to be able to purchse Travelsmith clothes directly from the Manufacturer (who has subsequently gone out of business). I have a black pair of chino slacks which are marvelous. They have the hidden zipper pocket for safety. I just returned from a work assignment and they never wrinkled in the suitcase, when I wore them, etc. I also have a wheat knit 2 pc. skirt suit, that I like very much. A few basics can really add to your wardrobe. My problem is I like Color and you don't find much tropical colors accept in shirts.
Bon voyage

Hi Cathy,

I bought their basic black dress and a pair of black slacks (black goes with everything), and I stand by their clothing. They are very comfortable, no wrinkles and they wash wonderfully (machine wash). Go ahead, it is worth spending a few extra bucks, because, if you remember that old saying, "You get what you pay for".

Splurge a little!
