• Man Style: What to Wear to the Gym

    by AlphaWolf & Co.

    Plenty may argue that men don’t need to dress “up” for the gym, and that the basic tee and sweatpants or shorts work just fine. And while we agree to a point, we still think thought should be put into your style every step of the way – even at the gym. Style is all about who you are on the inside and how you translate that to the outside. Style doesn’t take a break just because you’re breaking a sweat. Sure, keep the tees and sweats and shorts, just be sure they’re unstained, somewhat fashionable, and from this decade.

    When in doubt, keep it simple and make sure your clothes look clean. Of course, comfort is also huge and whatever you wear needs to allow your body to move (and sweat), just remember that comfortable doesn’t mean schlubby.

    Here’s a few tips:

    1) Stick to solid colors. Too many colors equals trying too hard, and you don’t want that. Also, consider darker colors if you sweat a lot so you avoid the dreaded-ring-of-perspiration-under-your-arms look.

    2) Your whole outfit should be only two or three colors. Any more and you look like a peacock.

    3) Don’t go too loose-fitting OR too tight. There’s a happy medium in how gym clothes fit, and what looks best on your frame. Keep looking and trying on, and you’ll know it when you see it.

    4) Pick fabrics that wear well. A blend of cotton and spandex keeps its shape nicely and don’t fall apart quickly.

    5) Shorts should fall just above your knees. This is the holy grail length.

    6) Track pants should have wider openings to accommodate your shoes. Narrow pant openings will bunch around your ankles.

    7) Wear ankle socks that don’t show above your shoe line.

    With that said, some of our picks for gym wear are:
