ZIP IT

Swiss Army Brands’ Arno Zip Off Pants ($98) are a perfect traveling companion made of 100 percent Italian cotton, plus, they’re a slick-looking pair of khakis perfect for sitting in first class en route to an unexplored locale. And if it’s a tad too warm for your liking when you reach your final destination, simply zip off the lower pieces of the pant legs and you have shorts to go. (866) 997-9477 or www.swissarmy.com
