Mr. Worldwide is definitely living up to his name.

“You gotta understand that I will go anywhere in the world for my fans,” Pitbull said when accepting his Walmart challenge to fly to Alaska for a concert.

Currently 50 degrees in Kodiak, Alaska, we can only imagine how cold it will get by the time Pitbull arrives for his show. As a Miami local, we imagine he’s not used to dressing for super cold Alaskan weather. So, we put together a list of five items Pitbull might want to pack in his luggage.

1. Sleek suit

No stranger to the suit, Giorgio Armani’s Fall 2012 Menswear is right up Pitbull’s alley. Since the singer will have to trade in his Miami slacks for colder weather, why not try some corduroy pants and a beret? Pitbull’s gotta keep that head warm. We particularly think he should bring along this fur coat to add to his look.

2. Turtleneck

“We’re seeing nary a neck on the runway this season. Why? Because more and more designers are refining and refurbishing that retro classic: The turtleneck,” GQ writes.

From Corneliani and Neil Barrett to Emporio Armani and Pringle of Scotland, it seems like every designer is onto the turtleneck. We especially think Pitbull would rock this all white ensemble from Corneliani.

3. A warm coat

The Miami native is probably not used to how cold it gets in Alaska. So, he better bring a winter coat. The 3.1 Phillip Lim line will no doubt suit Pitbull’s eclectic style. The runway show featured a solid mix of white fur, suede and black leather to fit Mr. Worldwide in any occasion. While Phillip Lim’s line was described as “fussy and over-styled” we’re thinking this is a look Pitbull would embrace.

4. Fur Hat

While a beret may be good for indoors, once Pitbull walks outside after his show he’ll need something a little warmer for the wind chill. Why not pick up a raccoon fur and suede hat to go with that suede suit? Or, if suede isn’t his thing there are plenty of other options like the coyote full fur Russian hat or rabbit fur hat in four different colors to match all of the suits in his wardrobe.

5. Snow shoes

Often it’s the shoes that take up the most space in a suitcase so just in case Pitbull runs out of room, why not purchase moccasins while in Alaska? Arctic Originals hand makes their mukluks and moccasins and their custom sizes are guaranteed to fit your measurements. The mukluks are handmade by Alaskan Native Indians in an assortment of styles and if purchased, Pitbull will have a souvenir to always remind him of the fun, albeit cold time he had in Alaska.
