The New Athleisure Economy: Intent vs. Reality

Seems like all of our favorite menswear labels are making stylish workout clothes these days, from  Ovadia & Sons to Suitsupply to Dusk, a sporty new collection launched by the folks at Unis yesterday. (And let’s not forget Todd Snyder’s long-standing collaboration with Champion.)

But with all this handsome athletic wear out there, who’s really using it to work out? That slick windbreaker intended for triathlon training will probably end up logging more hours at brunch tables than on running trails. Of course, that shouldn’t stop you from buying it—you’ll just have to come to terms with the intent of your purchase versus the reality of how you’ll actually use it...

That’s where we come in.

You may recall last summer’s campaigning for the Summer Pocket Square.

If not, allow us to remind you—there’s a certain charm to sticking something bright, gauzy and not too fussy into your breast pocket during the sunnier months... Plus, it’s the easiest way to inject some bright summer vibes into your navy suit or that sandy linen blazer.

News flash: St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Monday, to be exact.

So you’ll probably want to wear something green to ward off any handsy coworkers, relatives or passers-by. (Unless you’re into that sort of thing.)

Come to think of it, as far as sartorial traditions linked to holidays go, this might be one of the better ones—considering all you’ve got to do is wear “something” green. Which means you can be subtle about it—and, more importantly, get into the spirit without sacrificing your dignity.

Luckily, we’ve laid out the three best ways to go green in style.»
