Top of the Dopps


Going on vacation isn’t an excuse to slack off on your grooming routine. A perpetual 5 o’clock shadow is a chic indicator of some proper R&R, but any self-respecting globe-trotter will remember to pack a good moisturizer, shaving supplies, and a reliable deodorant, while leaving room for his signature fragrance (there’s nothing special about smelling like the hotel soap). The trick, then, lies in stowing your essentials in the right Dopp kit. Stick to a classic made of sturdy leather or waxed canvas; it should be compact enough to fit in a carry-on, with various compartments to help organize your gear. Now off you go.
