5 Essential Items Every Man on the Go Needs

Many men find shopping extremely boring and unnecessary. But there are a few things that every man on the go simply must-have. You don’t want to miss out on items that can actually help you improve your day to day life in many aspects. These items will help you to always look your best while on the go! 

A Rolling Briefcase

When you are leading an active and busy lifestyle that requires you to travel a lot, a rolling briefcase for men can be an absolute lifesaver! Carrying heavy luggage can really become a burden for several reasons. Suitcases are usually very heavy and big and aren’t that convenient for short trips. Carrying around a heavy suitcase can lead to not only shoulder pain but also to thinning of your wallet. Why should you pay an extra fee for your clunky suitcase? 

Sometimes you just don’t have that extra time to go from the airport to your hotel room and have to immediately go to a meeting. Now imagine carrying around that enormous suitcase. It’s painful when you just think about it. 

On the other hand, rolling briefcases are small and compact, and what’s most important very convenient! Whatever your choice of transportation might be, you can just pull or push your bag and you won’t have to worry about aching hands or shoulders anymore. Rolling briefcases can look really elegant especially if you find a model made from leather. Before you invest in one make sure that the wheels work properly! 

A Great Watch

For a man who travels or is always on the road, a watch can become of the utmost importance. When mobile phones were introduced and especially with modern smartphones, people kind of forgot about watches. But men who are constantly on the go know that having a watch can actually save you time! If you are kind of man who carries a leather bag to work, finding your phone somewhere deep down the bag can really be a drag. 

On the other hand, watches are super convenient! You just have to roll your hand and you know the time. Also, men who wear watches are considered to be more sophisticated, reliable and overall elegant. Having a great watch can speak of who you are and can show that you have good taste. 

If you travel a lot by yourself, sometimes that can become a lonely road. Striking up a conversation with someone can sometimes be weird but if the person sitting next to you has a nice watch you can ask them about it. So you see, it can also be a great conversation starter amongst other things! 

A Suit That Fits Perfectly

There’s just something really appealing about a man in a suit. Maybe it’s because we watched many great movies and TV shows featuring handsome men wearing sleek and perfectly tailored suits. Just think about any movie from the Golden Age of Hollywood or movies set in the ‘40s or ‘50s. Those men look just so damn fine! 

So why should you own a suit that fits perfectly? Well for starters you’ll look much more professional, reliable and elegant. And when you look at yourself in the mirror looking that good your confidence will skyrocket! This can be especially true when heading to an important meeting. Not only will you dress to impress you’ll also look the part of a great professional man. 

Also, women love men who wear suits. Which doesn’t come as a surprise when you think about it. Who wears them? That’s correct, successful men! Apart from looking professional, having a suit can come handy when you have to go to a fancy party or some other special occasion. 

Comfortable Dress Shoes

You have to have nice shoes that go with your suit don’t you? Men can have the same problem as women when it comes to dressing shoes. Women have to wear uncomfortable high heels and men uncomfortable suit shoes. Why they make them so uncomfortable is still a huge mystery. 

But if you are lucky enough you’ll find yourself a nice pair of great and comfortable leather shoes. Shoes have actually been an indicator of status in the past, and they still are today. And just like with the watch mentioned before, having a nice pair of dress shoes can show that you have an eye for detail and good taste. 

If you are planning to wear them every day, make sure that you invest in several dress shoes in order for them to stay the same. Make sure that they are made from high-quality leather, that they are comfortable, and that they allow you mobility. You’ll be looking sharp from head to toe! 

A Good Book or a Podcast

There is always time for self-improvement and instead of mindlessly scrolling through your social media, consider bringing a book with you. If you aren’t big on reading that can also be changed. Today, you have many audiobooks from authors you’ve been meaning to read but never got the time, or were too lazy. 

Now, you just have to put your headphones, increase the volume and while traveling or walking you can “listen” the book. There are many great authors from classical literature to modern-day self-help books, books on finances and more. 

Podcasts are also a great way to kill time while commuting to work, traveling to another country for work, etc. There are a lot of free podcasts on many different subjects you might be interested in. From science and philosophy to politics and history. You just have to find a subject you are interested in and you’ll be learning new and exciting things in no time! 


Hopefully, this list has given you an insight into some of the essential things you need as a man on the go. If you don’t already have some of the things mentioned on this list we highly recommend you look into them, because every single item on this list will improve the quality of your life in many ways!
