The Gentleman Nomad
A luxe upgrade to the typical grungy digital nomad kit
You've likely heard the term “digital nomads.” Those young remote workers cracking open their MacBook Pros by beaches in Bali or cafes in Chiang Mai, wearing vests and drinking beers. The new backpacker. Good times, but not quite our thing.
Enter the "gentleman nomad." Someone on the move, who needs to keep flexibility and practicality in mind, but wants to exist with a little more elan. Someone who senses possibility around every corner, whether that's a new deal, a new view, a new restaurant or a new date. Possibility is the point for this modern wayfarer and they are ready for everything—business and adventure, excitement or boredom, romance or bromance. Life, especially life on the road, can be random but sometimes that's beautiful. Being prepared for uncertainty is how to get ahead and when opportunity strikes, having the right stuff on you broadens the horizons of your existence. It's also just fun to be able to do what you want, when you want, where you want. Here is our luxe take on the nomad stack. You'll be ready to go anywhere, do anything and look damn good while doing it.
