The clothes you should always wear to fly, according to A-list actor | The Sun

AN A-list actor has revealed what he wears whenever he flies, and why he believes others should do the same.

Comfort is most people's first thought when they dress for a flight – but not Stanley Tucci.

The Hunger Games and Devil Wears Prada actor insists on dressing up smartly, and gets annoyed by other people not doing the same.

Although he claims his attitude is starting to thaw a little bit, he still at least insists on wearing a blazer on each flight.

He told Conde Nast Traveller that his pet peeve when travelling was "The way that people dress".

He explained: "Everybody's dressed like a nine year old. And you think, but you're not nine years old! You're a person. Put a shirt on, wear a pair of shoes.

"Why do you have to wear sweats? Even my children, my older children – I’m like, 'You can't dress like that on a plane.' But that's a very old fashioned way of thinking.

"You always got dressed up to travel. I still do. I'll sometimes just wear a suit on a plane. I've become a little less severe as I've gotten older, but I will always have a jacket."

Tucci's also quite particular about where he likes to stay, insisting on there being a kitchen somewhere for him – otherwise he admits to getting "antsy" even in places like the Maldives.

He said he likes to be within walking distance of restaurants, but also needs to have the option to cook for himself.

While his strict dress code might not be everyone's first choice, being smartly attired could get you an upgrade.

One flight attendant told Who, What, Wear, according to Travel + Leisure: "Smart but understated. You should look like you travel often…it helps.

"Someone who is potentially due to get an upgrade can be knocked back if they aren't dressed suitably."

Another flight attendant added: "No jeans or trainers — so I always go for tight black trousers and a blazer or a dress. For men, chinos or trousers and a shirt are worn."

Former British Airways flight attendant, Simon J Marton, previously said: "Dress smartly – it does no harm. If you look like you could be dressed appropriately for an upgrade, then you stand a better chance in that regard than someone in casual attire.

"If you don't manage to get into first class, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the food."

Meanwhile, this flight attendant revealed some clothing mistakes that passengers make.

And this is why dressing smart might not get you an upgrade at all.
