It is a common misconception that being comfortable must be synonymous with looking unkempt when it comes to the male wardrobe. From college-year stained sweatpants to shirts so worn that they're translucent, your so-called weekend wardrobe or gym clothes really shouldn't see the light of day. And while you may turn up your nose at the thought of athleisure because you a) hate portmanteaus and b) think that athletic leisurewear is comprised of the aforementioned relics of your closet, I urge you to keep an open mind.Think of athleisure as the best thing that has ever happened to your sense of style. No longer will your significant other or family or friends be able to berate you for wearing your workout clothes all the livelong day. No longer will you have to choose between form and function when it comes to your clothes. No - athleisure is here to free you from the painful process that is dressing yourself, and help you live, as they say, your best life.
When looking for great athleisure clothes, there are just a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, the hallmark of great athleisure is comfort. If you don't want to sleep in these clothes, then they're not worth your time.
Second, you'll want to keep the athletic abilities of these clothes top of mind. Some of my favorite athleisure brands for men are, first and foremost, athletic wear companies. That means that their apparel is performance-ready, capable of wicking sweat, drying quickly, all while keeping you looking sharp. The combination of form and function is what you ought to be looking for from a great athleisure brand.
Of course, you'll also want to be sure that these clothes look good. As it turns out, there are sweatpants and there are sweatpants, and you want to be buying clothes that fit into the latter category.
Finally, you should consider price points. Athleisure wear should not cost you as much as a custom suit (even if you will get much more wear out of it). Luckily, most of our favorite brands are quite affordable - so much so that you may consider replacing your whole closet.
No matter which of our favorite athleisure brands you choose, we're sure that you'll be comfortable and look great while you're at it.
