What brands of shirts does Rick wear on his trips? They always look so fresh and clean.
That's because he washes them in the sink in his hotel room ;-)
Someone else asked that question a couple of months ago: https://community.ricksteves.com/travel-forum/packing/rick-steves-shirts-that-appear-on-the-show
Jos. A. Banks. Of course. I'm going to have to look around for a pretty good sale before I invest in such up-scale shirts for casual travel.
Bring ironed and starched shirts, ie, commercially laundered, button down even better.
Visit a Good Will located between the hills and the freeway entrance and you'll find Jos. A. Banks attire donated by limousine liberals. That's what I do, and it helps me fit in better on those rare occasions when I'm sitting forward of the wings on the plane ride.
I'm hearing good things about the Under Armour pants that are cut to look like trousers instead of athletic wear.
Anyone have any experience with those, or similar?
I have a pair of REI lightweight Traveler pants that I have worn on a few domestic trips and I love them.
I just bought a new pair of Columbia pants that are similar to take to Rome in a few weeks.
Notice that the referenced shirts from Jos A Bank are 100% cotton. I'd wonder how fast they'd dry if you wash in sink and hang in the bathroom to dry as RS recommends. A test in a climate typical to your travel locations might be useful. Please publish if you do.
Don't know how they wash & wear, but they are currently on sale. Reg. $79 Sale 2 for $89
Thanks for the replies, I'm going to check them out locally.
My luggage includes Jos A Banks' shirts for a summer trip, but not every single one. I bring both blend and 100% cotton.
I for one would not assume that during a working trip filming a series of TV episodes, Rick travels doing his own laundry. What's the attraction to these shirts? Jos A Banks is OK but not that different from other shirts in that price range.
