1 Pick up an any-temperature shirt.

Inside the airplane, it’s a teeth-chattering 64º Fahrenheit. Outside Departures, it’s a sweltering 88º. You’ll want a shirt that can handle the whole range in style—something like this polo shirt, from Brooks Brothers. It’s made out of Supima cotton, an ultra-rare strain of the fabric that’s softer and more breathable than any other cotton on the planet. The result? An extremely comfortable polo that’s practically temperature-controlled: it’ll cool you off when it’s warm and keep you snug when it’s chilly. (For business travelers who might prefer something a touch dressier than a polo, Brooks Brothers has a non-iron Oxford button-down shirt in Supima, too.)
