Romeo's World

The world is becoming more and more aware of the the importance of making sustainable choices for our planet and its future generations. And while we love fashion, the industry has to do better to do better to play our part. However, consumers and the industry are changing and making strides to play our part, with many companies choosing to partake in sustainable choices. Sustainable fashion is a term that has been getting a lot of buzz lately and it shows we're on the right path, but what exactly defines sustainable fashion? 

Sustainable fashion is defined as "a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion concerns more than just addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion."

Some of the most prevalent factors in the fashion industry that contribute to environmental hazards include: high water usage, pollutions and chemicals from the dyeing process, waste of products not sold, non-recyclable clothing, and landfill deposits. However, sustainable fashion also encompasses social concerns such as fair labor, animal cruelty, and supply chain transparency.

If a fashion business is sustainable, it means that the products are manufactured, marketed, and used in the most sustainable manner possible. And, this just doesn’t include the environmental factors, but also its socio-economic effects. A sustainable approach enhances the value and experience at each stage of the product’s life cycle - from the initial stages of conception to procuring raw material, manufacturing, transportation, storage, marketing, sales, and post lifetime disposal. 

Every company aiming to be more sustainable may have different methodologies to try and reduce waste and help the planet. Whether it is committing to cruelty-free lines, focusing on fair labor, or ensuring the use of eco-friendly products. While no company may have it completely down to a science, every little step is a step in the right direction.
Sustainable Fashion: Romeo Merino
Here at Romeo Merino, we are wholly committed to creating products that are kind to the planet, the animals, and the community. We focus on timeless classics that are made to last for years to come. This means less harmful dumping and wasting of resources, and even though a merino wool garment can last you for years, once it's in the ground, the fabric naturally biodegrades within twelve months and is released back into the planet as carbon and nutrients. 
Our sweaters are crafted under remarkably responsible parameters to protect planet earth. Our signature dying process utilizes the least amount of chemical products possible, we reduce water consumption by reusing water, and we ensure that every step is completed in the most sustainable way possible.
While we would love to deliver Romeo Merino in sleek and colorful packaging, we wanted to ensure that every aspect (even down to the deliveries) is done with the environment in mind. That’s why our shipping boxes and protective wrapping are made of certified recycled paper and our care booklets are made from sugar cane. 
We only work with farmers with the highest industry standards and certifications for animal care. Our sheep are guaranteed non-mulesed sheep, and our wool is produced sustainably with low environmental impact.

A gentleman always wants to look polished, even when he’s far from the creature comforts of home. However, the additional time it takes to check a bag and wait for it at the luggage carousel, the annoyance and effort it takes to haul said bag around, and the additional cost for checked bags makes a single carry-on a much more convenient and appealing choice when traveling. An overwhelming amount of luggage is never fun, but either is wishing you had packed your go-to power suit.For the stylish man who’s always on the go, we’ve compiled our top five travel tips for those who want to pack with ease and travel in style. With these tips, convenience meets complete style, as we’ve provided tips to look effortlessly stylish for every occasion, all with a carry on. So get ready to save time, money, and hassle with these quick and easy tips. 

Pack Reusable Items

Pack items and accessories that can stand repeat use. A classic scarf can dress up a classic blazer and also serves as the perfect day time accessory for casual outings. Opt for a neutral color that goes with various styles. For the ultimate all-in-one staple, opt for pieces made from merino wool. Not only is merino wool wrinkle-resistant, which makes it perfect for travel, but it’s naturally antibacterial, meaning you can get repeat uses out of the fabric while still smelling fresh.

Skip the Toiletries

This one may be surprising, but with the TSA hassles of tiny bottle regulations and fears of shampoo leaking all of your aforementioned favorite merino wool items, it’s just easier to leave your toiletries at home. Unless you have a holy grail brand and product you can’t live without, just pop into a local drug store and get your toiletries for the trip onsite.
Romeo Merino: Travel Tips for the Fashionable Man

Roll With It

Save valuable space by tightly rolling your clothes instead of folding them. This will not only allow you to bring more options, but it will also help reduce wrinkles. For the ultimate time saver, roll predetermined outfits together for easy mornings when you’re on the go.

Pick a Color Palette 

Opt for pieces that can easily mix and match to create numerous looks from the same pieces. A cohesive color palette allows you to plan all your outfits in that specific  color scheme for your trip. Earth tones and neutrals are great staples that can easily be matched to various outfits. We also recommend bringing one set of black pants, one white, and a bold pop of color to pair with the items from your color palette for maximum versatility. This will help minimize the number of items packed while ensuring an always polished look. The same rule applies to shoes, pack just one or two pairs in neutral colors that can be paired with various looks.

For those who want to give their skin a glow up, we’ve recommended some of our favorite tips and products to ensure you’re always feeling fresh. It’s time to upgrade your routine - skip the cheap bar soap and opt for something a little more refined. There are a host of offerings on the market tailor-made to target specific needs. Whether you want to nourish dry skin, exfoliate and de-clog your pores, or brighten your complexion, there’s a perfect product made just for you. Though you may be tempted to save money by pilfering from your girl’s beauty stash, men’s skin has different needs. With slightly thicker skin, daily shaving, and naturally higher collagen levels, our skin can benefit from products made with just us in mind. Here are some of our must-have products and tips to upgrade your grooming regimen: 

Stock Up on Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash

For the perfect start to your day, wake up with this refreshing face wash from skincare legend, Kiehl’s. A cult favorite, this product effectively cleanses the skin while providing you with an invigorating and energizing experience. The formula has three key ingredients that revive the skin while preparing it for a comfortable shave: coffee, to energize and reduce dullness, vitamin E, to neutralize skin-damaging free radicals and moisturize, and menthol, for that skin-tingling, fresh feeling that everyone loves.

Commit to Routine

Make cleansing your skin part of your daily routine. Be religious about washing your face morning and night, but most importantly, always, always, always (we can’t stress this enough) be sure to cleanse your skin after a workout. This is key not only to prevent the sweat and bacteria from clogging your pores but also to remove the salt contained in sweat that can cause irritation and dehydration.

Create the Perfect Shave


Take a little extra time to warm up your water to create a softer base for your razor and stock your cabinet with a high-quality shaving cream. Though there are cheap options on the market, a luxe shaving cream will prevent razor burn, ingrown hairs, and will help the overall texture and appearance of your skin. We’re partial to the Jack Black Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather, which is known to “lift hair up and away from the skin for a smooth, close shave that leaves skin soft, hydrated, and refreshed. Three hydrating layers create a protective cushion between the skin and blade, helping reduce razor burn, irritation, and nicks for a pain-free shave.” Not only do we love it for its effect on our skin, but we also love the fact that it’s vegan and cruelty-free. When you’re all lathered up, use long, even strokes to move the razor and gently shave against the grain. Rinse after each swipe and remember to change out your blade after about five to seven uses.

Never Forget the Sun Screen


Because nobody has time for premature wrinkles, it’s key to always slather on the sunscreen before stepping outdoors. This quick simple step will help prevent sun damage that can lead to wrinkles, age spots, and even scarier, skin cancer. For the best protection, choose a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. For the ultimate protection, ensure that you’re wearing sun-protective clothing, such as merino wool. Not only will it help keep you cool, but its fibers also block out harmful rays from the sun.
