Gents’ Top 10 Athletic (Inspired) Picks

As we were talking about in our Clothes & Conversation this week, a couple of weeks into January usually means one thing, when it comes to our New Year’s resolutions….that we are not feeling as resolute about them. If you’re like most Americans, at least one of those involved something relating to working out more to get healthy or lose weight. So, this week, we’re going to do our best to cheer you on from the sidelines with our list of athletic (inspired) clothes to keep you in that sporty mood. “Athleisure” has become more than just a trend, with designers using sweats and work out clothes as inspiration for clothes that work in all aspects of our lives. And, at the same time, the general category of work out clothes has gotten a lot better looking. So, our picks are all about the idea that getting to the gym is a real possibility for a gent who dresses like this. Whether you go to the gym– or just want to look like you go – is up to you.
Let us know what you think in the comments below and on social media. See you next week.

1. Sporty Wool Sweater: We know we haven’t finished football season yet but baseball season is just around the corner. We’re ready to embrace it a little early with this baseball tee-inspired merino wool sweater from Rag & Bone. The charcoal and heather grey colors work great with any bottom. This sweater is sporty, but still polished enough to wear in any creative or casual office environment, especially with a pair of dark wash jeans or twill pants. The fit is modern and great for most gents.

2. Sporty Jacket: Nike takes a varsity-style to a whole new level with this sleek jacket. The awesome details - tech fabric, wind flap closure - are all designed to keep the heat in, but the cold and moisture out. There are enough pockets for your essentials, making it a great option for more than just fitness plans. And with looks like this, it deserves some attention on any casual weekend. The black heather color works with jeans, sweats or cotton twill pants, and creates a sleek look when layered over a plaid button down shirt. It’s a great combination of function and fashion.

3. Grown-up Sweats: Leave it to J. Crew to come up with the ideal grown-up version of sweatpants. Just as casual, but so much more pulled-together looking, soft cotton chambray replaces fleece for an athletic look that you can wear well beyond the parameter of your house. The fit is typical J. Crew – modern, with somewhat narrower legs and a rise that sits just below the waist. Wear them like you would any perfectly broken-in pair of jeans, with a plaid flannel button up shirt, a zip hoodie or a pull over sweater.

4. Best Running Shorts: Running shorts should be comfortable, technically up-to-date and, of course, look good. Smart Wool effortlessly checks off all three of our criteria with these shorts. A favorite of several running journals, they’re made of a lightweight outer shell over a merino wool fitted brief - and have a bunch of other good technical features that make them the ultimate in comfort and support. The longer 7-inch inseam can be hard to find. They're great for all body types – and you can even wear them when you’re not exercising without looking plain silly.

5. Best Running Shirt: It comes as no surprise that the makers of one of the best running shorts also makes an amazing running shirt. The fabric is 85% merino wool and 15% nylon. It’s seriously soft and great for cooler weather – though, the mesh venting helps cool you off. Its seamless construction prevents the dreaded chaffing on long runs, a serious must. In addition to this classic alloy grey, it comes in green that is ideal for any road runner.

6. Sporty Cotton Sweater: Tennis, anyone? This tennis-inspired striped cotton sweater from Hugo Boss will make you the best dressed gent at the club…or the office. The light grey color goes with all your neutral pants and medium to darker wash jeans. Wear it with a white t-shirt or polo. For the office, a white button up shirt looks great, too. This will take you into spring seamlessly.

7. Go-to Sweatshirt: Tommy Bahama took their well-known classic, casual style and added a moisture wicking fabric to come up with an ideal sweatshirt. It will keep you cool and dry on your long walks, a round of golf or a busy day of errands. While it comes in neutral black or navy, this coral color works great with jeans, cotton twill pants - or your running gear, if you are so inspired.

8. Best Bargain Work-out T-shirt: A well-priced (to put it mildly) t-shirt for your workout, this surprise from Old Navy will not disappoint. It is soft, comfortable, not too tight and even has performance wicking properties. For some of our Mark Shale daily treadmillers, it is their favorite t-shirt. The best is that Old Navy pricing (and multiple colors) make it easy to have several in your closet to keep in constant rotation. And, hey, the graphics give us a little helpful motivation.

9. Versatile Running Sneaker: If you don’t have the right sneaker, functionally, no workout is going to go well. And if you don’t have the right sneaker, aesthetically, no outfit is going to look right. New Balance’s 1260v4 is a true runner’s shoe with all the support and lightweight technology needed for your daily mileage. The built in support system is especially good if you tend to overpronate. The contrast silver and blue with the touch of yellow is really sharp looking, too. When you are not running, they look great with jeans and sweats.

10. Thirst Quencher: You’ve got to stay hydrated, right? This brushed stainless bottle from Klean Kanteen is consistently rated among the best, perfect to bring to the gym or on a long walk. It’s the Rolls Royce of water bottles, with high vacuum insulation and a completely stainless interior that doesn’t retain any tastes or flavors. It locks in temperature, so your water will stay cool, and coffee will stay hot. The clean, cool look doesn’t hurt.
