Travelling fashionably can work as Jared Ruttenberg shows us. Picture: Gokul Nair.

Jarred Ruttenberg, popularly known as Jared in Cpt, always looks stylish while out on his travels. He speaks to Clinton Moodley about his recent look.

The look:

The leather bag

Jared loves his leather bag, and styles it well with each look. The leather sling bag is from King Kong Leather.

“The bag ensures that my laptop and other important documents are kept both securely and stylishly during transit. The bags are custom made in Cape Town, but can be delivered nationally and has a 5 year guarantee,” he says.


The grey and black jacket is perfect for any look. Jared says his down puffer from Old Khaki has ensured that he stayed warm on countless safaris, sunrise missions, and mountain expeditions. “A down jacket is more expensive, but is exceptionally warm so you don't need many base layers,” he adds.


And what’s a good travel look without a pair of jeans. Jared swears by them, citing a good pair  jeans always packed in his travel bag. “My go-to favorite is a pair from County Road - casual enough for a day's exploring, but smart enough to complement an evening shirt.”

Plain tees

“Every traveler needs some plain tees - they're versatile, and don't clash with jackets, accessories,” he says.

“Every year or two I get some quality tees: v-neck and crew neck, from Woolies and Country Road,” he said.
