Its four drivers bring stunning clarity, but these Westone 4R (HK$3,950) earplug-style headphones are almost as good as noise-cancelling products. And they're much easier to travel with.

Travel chic

Gone are the days when people dressed up to travel. There was a time when people had to shop or have clothes made to wear on the plane. These days, it's all about sweat pants and hoodies and well-worn T-shirts. Casual is now the norm.

Dandy & Dapper

I only pull out my tux for weddings and New Year's Eve. I tried it on the other day and it was, um, a bit snug around the waist. A bit of a blow to my ego, especially since I have just had a milestone birthday. My wife suggested I borrow her Spanx. Is there a guy's version?
