TravelSmith's Women's Light-as-Air Crinkle Cotton Collection —

Crinkle weave encourages air to circulate and gives a touch of stretch for flexibility on the road. And the fabric is delicately textured to keep an even surface, so humid train rides and crammed overnight bags won't put a wrinkle in your sightseeing plans. Dress them up for an evening of entertainment or down for a day of active exploring.

NEW Tops: #6407 and #6422 — $39-44

Shirt: #5563 — $59

Pants: #6751 and #6697 — $59

Women's Perfect-Fit Stretch Twills — now include "stretch"! Wrinkle-resistant stretch is infused into every fiber for easy movement and a smooth appearance straight off the airplane or right out of your luggage.

Shaped waistlines follow your natural contours. These pants have adjustable waist tabs and a front fly.

Available colors: Stone and Black — 97% cotton, 3% spandex. #5890 — $59.00

Women's Ultimate Travel Skirt (If You Can Travel with Only One Skirt, This Is the One to Pack.) —

Currently available in five travel-worthy colors

Made of a soft, lightweight, yet highly durable poly-Supplex twill, It's treated with QuickWick to transport moisture away from your skin and keep you cool and dry. Sink-wash and let it drip-driy overnight (or machine-dry). #5366 — $59

Color Burgundy — $34.99 (as long as stock available)

Men's Long Sleeve No-Worries Microfiber Shirt —

Most button-down shirts are too uptight to wear when unwinding on vacation. This one, however, owes its unbuttoned attitude to smooth, silk-like fabric — a blend of polynosic rayon and polyester. It defies wrinkles, scorns ironing, washes easily, and dries in a flash. #8219 — $59.50

Men's No-Worries Microfiber Short Sleeve Shirt — #8247 — $54.50

NEW! Men's Linen-Blend Correspondent's Jacket —

Linen's natural good looks but not its drawbacks: A Teflon® treatment repels water and stains, a wrinkle-resistant finish keeps you looking crisply pressed, and machine washability saves time and cleaning bills. #7164 — $129.50

"Buzz Off" insect repellent clothing — This is the one you (and I, your editor) read about in USA Today and worth a look!

Here's what I discovered:

This is the first apparel ever registered by the EPA as an insect repellent. It has highly effective chemical (derived from chrysanthemum) tightly bonded to the fabric. Odorless and colorless, it does not affect the feel or performance of the garment. The fabric also offers 30+ SPF sun protection, and wicks moisture from your skin to keep you dry and comfortable. (Downside: repellent protection good through 25 washings.)

If bug bites are a concern at home or for your upcoming travels, I encourage you to visit both ExOficio and Magellan's — you'll notice that styles for men, women and kids vary. ExOficio features the most extensive selection, including a convertible pant option for men, women and kids. (P.S. It's their new clothing line!)
