Monocle magazine introduces Voyage, its first foray into fashion


Monocle is certainly not content with just being a journal of global affairs for the jet-set. 
The magazine and lifestyle brand has put its cultured name on everything from Revo radios to Oliver Peoples frames. What else could possibly be left?
Clothing for the posh Monocle reader, of course. That's where Monocle Voyage, the company's first fashion collection geared toward the stylish traveler, comes into play. It's a simple collection of savvily designed basics in premium materials.

First on the must list: dark navy straight-cut trousers paired with an unconstructed, three-button jacket made from fine Italian fabric. It's comfortable enough for air travel and classy enough for getting right to business when you touch down.
Their basic crew-neck sweatshirt, available in dark grey and navy Japanese cotton, will keep you warm in that chilly business class cabin. You know, while you're reading a copy of Monocle.
Though if you're looking to pack light, bypass the crew for the classic Oxford shirt. Ready for all occasions, this shirt rocks mother of peal buttons, curved hems, and a contemporary cut that'll work under a blazer just as well as it does over the Monocle Voyage cotton tee.
Now, the important decision: Where are you flying?
