by , March 29, 2024

While Émigré’s pared-back and professional carry offerings first caught our attention, it didn’t take long to discover their equally stylish and practical apparel. A considered blend of clean and timeless designs with quality construction and thoughtful features makes their apparel a great choice for office-to-airport wardrobes. And we’ve picked some of our favorite pieces below that will work equally well on your work commute or your next trip.

Merino Crewneck (US$180)

Commuter Chino (US$230)

Émigré Commuter Chino

The Commuter Chino looks sharp enough for the office but offers the comfort and ability to dress down for relaxed days off too.
