The award-winning filmmaker created a first person piece called ‘Travel With Style,’ an original video that highlights how the Ludlow Traveler breaks the mould of the typical buttoned-up look.
Inspired by his adventures, Casey is seen boarding nine flights to eight cities and portrays what travelling in style means to him whilst showcasing the crease-resistant suit.
From Ixtapa to Big Bear, snowboarding to surfing, Casey wears the specially woven, three-ply Italian wool suit throughout his journeys covering 11,000 miles.
