The

All Season

Shirt

 The gray crew-neck sweatshirt is a masculine classic that's as American as they come—comfortable, easy and versatile. It's a piece you should have on hand all year, which is fine considering they only get better with age (and even a grass stain or two). In the summer, toss it on when the weather dips at night or inside an over-airconditioned theater. As fall approaches, sport it over a polo or under a denim jacket and even wear it with a tie and your favorite navy blazer. The trick is to find the right one. Each season it seems, designers take a crack at it, but Uniqlo's take—a trim fit with high arm holes, a wide collar and retro detailing—is your best bet. A Japanese take on Americana? We should've known.

$19.50 at Uniqlo

Answer

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
