A New Year's Resolution to Influence What You Wear

How are you doing with that New Year’s resolution? You know that one about working out more/getting fit/losing weight? Well, if you're like us – and most Americans – you’re already feeling less inspired. While losing weight came in as the #1 resolution last year, statistics also show that about 30% of us had bailed on it by this time last year. So, we are not going to claim to be experts on how to get in shape, or on the best technical gear for various sports. But here’s how we can lend our expertise…we do know a thing or two about what to wear to at least get you in the mood to keep that resolution. Whether it’s actual work out clothes, or clothes inspired by the athletic lifestyle, thoughts of the gym will never by far away.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, for our complete “Gents’ Top 10 Athletic (Inspired) Picks”.
If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media. Go get ‘em!

Hugo Boss is getting in on the athletic style inspiration, creating this reversible sweater jacket. Reversing from a stylish cotton/wool blend sweater with track jacket details - like a ribbed stand collar and cuffs - to a nylon-looking windbreaker that is perfect for the golf course, makes this a key piece in any gent’s wardrobe. It’s also perfect for an easy night out by wearing the sweater side with twill or dark denim jeans and a dark patterned button up shirt. And, hey, if it starts to rain, reverse the sweater and you are covered.

We love finding new stores and brands. Outdoor Voices won us over – they have a tight assortment of really well-made active wear that isn’t flashy, but is stylish, modern, and has a really nice fit. These sweats are our top pick. They have an updated shape with a slim leg that still offers plenty of room in the thigh – great for those of us with athletic legs. With the emergence of sweatpants being acceptable in public, this is a pair we can actually get behind. Wear them with a cool pair of sneakers and a hoodie, flannel, thermal shirt, or even a cotton crewneck sweater to get your errands done in style. Even if you didn’t just finish a 5-mile run, you’ll look like you did.

This thermal pant from Brooks is a favorite among runners, and we agree. It’s great to have a running pant option that isn’t tight, and this one offers wind and rain protection, while wicking away moisture to keep you dry and comfortable. It even has reflective properties to increase your visibility at night – eliminating all excuses to miss a run. The additional functional perks, like a back zip pocket for your keys and phone, and zip-opening at the bottom to easily pull them over your boots, make them a great dog-walking/coffee-getting/play date drop-off pair of pants, too.

Fit Guide
When Reigning Champ® came on the scene back in 2007, fleece never felt basic again. This mid-weight zip hoodie became an instant classic for its quality materials and modern aesthetic, like the contrast white trim and wide white hoodie pull. The fit isn’t oversized, and looks great on most gents. Its soft yet beefy cotton just improves with age (so it’s a good thing that the zipper is sure to last a lifetime). This will become your “go to” for the gym or weekend errands. The navy is our favorite, but you can’t go wrong with the grey, either.

Just because it’s a gym bag doesn’t mean it can’t also look good enough to be your weekend getaway bag, too. This duffle from Herschel Supply Company does just that. The black canvas bag has a top zip, interior lining with a side pocket and, best of all, a separate zip shoe compartment to stow your workout shoes. What more can we ask for? A good price? It’s got that, too.

The active trend has had its biggest impact on casual shoes. Now, we pick sneakers that will look cool with our jeans – it’s not just about comfort for a run or to play basketball. The tonal suede and iconic over-sized swoosh on these Nike’s really deliver with a versatility and subtle style that looks so good with your jeans or sweats. The shades of grey work with any and every color. And since they’re from Nike, you know they will be comfortable enough to jump in on a softball game when the weather gets nicer.
