The Best Activewear Built For The Weekend

Thanks to a revolution in streetwear, men have been ditching their usual garb in favour of cozier activewear that looks as good as anything else in their wardrobe. No longer the stuff of hung-over brunches and gym locker rooms, sweatpants and hoodies have been given the stylish treatment to work outside their typical habitat. Not to be outdone, even formal styles like button-ups and blazers have been revived in functional fabrics that are a pleasure to wear. Here are the “athleisure” brands that have caught our attention.

For the perfect sweater: Kit & Ace

This Vancouver-based brand is obsessed with one comfy fabric in particular: technical cashmere. Kit & Ace offers everything from sweatpants to T-shirts in the luxury material, and all in a minimalist palette. The slim-fitting Cowan Crew gives you everything you need to dress up for the weekend without sacrificing movement or cool factor—in fact, it has subtle ventilation panels built into the underarms, just for that.

For the perfect T-shirt: Iffley Road

Iffley Road out of Britain specializes in running clothing, but its apparel is perfect for off-days, too. The brand constructs its T-shirts from a bespoke drirelease fabric that’s soft, flexible and extremely light, while also providing sweat-wicking properties. As a point of pride, Iffley Road cuts its tees in between the trim fit of traditional athletica and your typical gym shirt, ensuring an exceptionally easy-going silhouette.

For the perfect jacket: Aether Apparel

With spring coming, a comfortable topper is a must. Aether Apparel specializes in active outerwear, but it’d be easy to mistake their military jacket for a classic staple from a heritage brand. Unlike other jackets with water-resistant properties, this breathable jacket expels body humidity even when it’s wet.

For the perfect sweats: Cory Vines

Joggers are all well and good, but Cory Vines has you covered when you need a pair of sweats that won’t cause your boss to do a double take (well, some bosses). Their Path Trousers are cut like a regular pair of pants, but they sport athletic details and a four-way stretch technical fabric that wicks away sweat. They’re the Friday pants made for every day of the week.

For the perfect blazer: EFM

The trend of stylish activewear cuts both ways. Donrad Duncan’s label Engineered For Motion—EFM for short—offers a one-button blazer with technical details like stretchy panels at key points to provide an enhanced range of motion.

The perfect button-up: Outlier

Dreading Monday? Keep the weekend going with Outlier’s office-ready button-up. Crafted of ultrafine merino wool and cotton, it’s super tough and can even survive several smell-free days without washing (seriously). It also resists wrinkling, meaning it’s up for any adventures you are.
