If you go for a classic look in your everyday outfits — opting for workwear-inspired clothes and boots or choosing raw selvedge jeans instead of more modern materials — you’re probably hoping to do the same with your workout ensembles. But in the world of men’s activewear, flashy technical fabrics and technicolor patterns abound. So where can you go if you want athletic wear that looks as classic as the rest of your wardrobe? Ahead, here are our favorite labels for classic activewear. Whether you want something clean and classic or clearly vintage-inspired, these brands have something for everyone.
1. Aether Apparel
Aether‘s line of activewear is the perfect choice for a guy who wants the best of modern technical materials and an attractive and authentic look. Aether was founded by former filmmakers Jonah Smith and Palmer West, who wanted gear that’s technically advanced, without logos or unnecessary bulk. The label makes everything from understated base layers to classic shirts you’ll want to wear everyday to pants and shorts that look much more clean and refined than the workout gear you can buy at the mall.
