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...
For years, indigo was a term relegated to the dark corners of the denim-obsessed, but nowadays it’s been popping up everywhere—and far beyond jeans.
Which is great, because indigo can be so many things. And menswear has begun embracing the centuries-old natural dye in all of its forms—from blazers knit with indigo-dyed yarns to garment-dyed indigo sweatpants—thanks in no small part to the gents at San Francisco’s Unionmade who were at the forefront of the beyond-denim indigo movement. Which brings us to this upcoming spring awash in a sea of saturated blues...
Because we may have finally found the perfect pair of summer shorts, by way of menswear blogger darling label Unis: the Emmett.
Unis basically took the label’s highly coveted Gio pants and cut them off at the exactly appropriate length—baring just enough knee to keep things interesting, while not going full-on Larry Bird. Most importantly, the short pants retain the casually tailored-ness and Italian cotton of their forefather.
Blogger-favorite Unis has just dropped some new fall/winter offerings—including the already legendary Gio pant in a few autumnal colors—but this polka-dotted oxford cloth button-down is what caught our eye.
The ’60s collegiate shirt de rigueur has become ubiquitous amongst today’s menswear-savvy (chances are high you’re wearing one while reading this), and we’ve even begun to see a few plaid iterations, but this is the first time we’ve seen the sort of pattern reserved for silk ties on oxford cloth. And it’s a welcome departure.
The Unis Gio gets a lot of love from the style press, and for good reason: it’s one of the best-cut pants on the market, made with great fabrics in smart colors, all stitched together in New York city limits.
