Magellan's Travel Clothing Fall 2008 Picks

Magellan’s was founded by two travel professionals to provide a single source of unique and useful travel products, supported by well trained travel gear specialists, and backed by a complete 100% guarantee of satisfaction. While working for Pan Am Airways, John and Gloria McManus traveled extensively around the world and were frustrated by the inadequate supply of travel products available to consumers. In 1989 they created Magellan’s catalog, starting with a 32 page black and white catalog of hard-to-find travel products. John’s no-nonsense, detailed descriptions of each item made it clear how each addressed a travel problem, from overseas electrical adapters to third world health and hygiene. Their mission is to make your travel more comfortable, safe, and rewarding.

Traveling for business can be stressful enough. You have new people to meet and appointments to keep. Making a great first impression is your top priority and you don't have the time to iron your clothing prior to every business meeting. People form their first and lasting impression of you in under 3 minutes and how you look is imperative. In the business world, this can mean the difference between closing the deal or not. Enter the Magellan's line of travel clothing for men and women. Their travel clothing line is designed for the frequent traveler with hidden pockets and compartments to store your airline tickets and other important travel documents. You will save time, energy and frustration not having to dig in your purse to find what you are looking for.

The Wrinkle-free shirt is made from 100% cotton and is a versatile piece that looks terrific paired with a knee length skirt or pants and is a must have staple in your wardrobe.

They are available in beautiful colors for fall and in addition, are available in petite sizing. The Women's Travel Blazer is available in black or cocoa and is beautifully tailored and the perfect length to flatter the wearer. This remarkable and stylish blazer will dress up any outfit. Folds for travel and unfolds ready to wear and doesn't require any ironing. A timeless piece that you will reach for over and over again.

One of the members of our panel had the opportunity to test the Wrinkle-Free Shirt, Travel Lite Knit Pants and the Women's Travel Blazer courtesy of Magellans, while on a recent business trip:

"As a buyer, I travel frequently and I am always on a very tight schedule. As soon as the plane touches gone, I have to be on my best game. I need to look neat and pulled together from the moment that the plane touches down, often needing to dash directly to meetings straight from the airport. There is no time to iron or change as time is of the essence. I have tried so many apparel items that claim that they are "iron free" however by the end of even a short flight, they are no longer iron free, leaving me in a bind. I was eager to try the Wrinkle-free shirt, women's travel blazer and Jet Set pants. My first impression was the high quality and cut of the garments. Ideal for business travel and perfect for making that first impression. The real test would be if they survived my rigor schedule. I put on the shirt and pants just prior to heading to the airport, folding the jacket up several times to fit into my carry on. I wore the white shirt and jacket throughout my 2 long flights with a connection in between, finding them very comfortable. After I touched down, I headed straight to the restroom to retrieve the folded jacket and was really shocked that the jacket unfolded beautifully, without one sign of a wrinkle. When I looked in the mirror to inspect the white short and pants I was truly impressed that they looked as fresh and crisp as they had when I had first put them on. I felt confident to be met by a client and have a business dinner with them. I look forward to adding to my collection of no-iron apparel and continuing to make great first impressions."

Wrinkle free stylish apparel are ideal for any women who wants to put her best foot forward while traveling. Whether you are traveling locally and abroad, these timeless classic pieces will take you from day to night with ease. New for fall, check out the Jet Set Shirt, Jet Set Tank and the Travel Lite Knit Pants. The Anywear Scarf is great way to get lots of different looks from a minimum of wardrobe pieces, and add a bit of color. It can be worn as a shawl.

Lovely clothing. Travel apparel has certainly come along way! I hate ironing on vacation, but still want to look chic and put together. These items solve the problem.

As a business professional as I can relate. First impressions are critical and looking put together is a must. I have also had difficulty finding stylish items that are truly wrinkle free and will be purchasing the blazer and white shirt.
