6 travel must-haves for him

To celebrate the opening of County Clothes in Sevenoaks here's their pick of the jetset essentials for the Mr Muddy in your life

Prosecco and a pastry on some far flung city escape…? An exploring adventure in the mountains of South America? *sigh* well a girl can dream, right? So to indulge my little fantasies I asked County Clothes (winner of Best Men’s Boutique in Kent, as voted by you) to give us their Top 6 jetset travel essentials for the Mr Muddy in your life. They are celebrating the new opening of their forth shop – the latest being in super cute (and yes rather fashionable) Sevenoaks.

County Clothes have beautifully styled these must-haves into a jet-set outfit, consisting of:

1. Bee shirt, Claudio Lugli, £89
2. Shorts, Meyer, £85 original price (and 25% off in the summer sale)
3. Aztec style belt, Sophos, £35
4. Panama Hat, Olney, £65
5. Weekend Bag, Barbour, £89.95
6. Deck shoes, Chatham, £65
I recently visited the new Sevenoaks store (you’ll find the others in Canterbury and Tenterden in Kent and Reigate in Surrey).  They specialise in everything from classic to more modern suits, sports jackets and wax jackets (a whole Barbour section upstairs). But what really caught my eye was the pretty decent selection of smaller items, perfect for pressies (everything from cufflinks to shaving soaps).
My Mr Muddy K is notoriously difficult to buy for and there is a whole gift and grooming section in here that I’ll definitely be regularly raiding the week before his birthday/Christmas for some last minute gift inspiration (probably starting with those snazzy socks, pictured below).

Less than 1 minute’s walk from Bligh’s carpark on Bank Street, the central pedestrianised area of Sevenoaks, the new shop is in prime location territory. Next time you’re in that neck-of-the-woods swing by for a shifty. And in the meantime where will it be? French Riviera, Prague, Brussels or Rome? Come fly with me – let’s go find some dapper destination to doff your Panama hat.
