Men’s Wear Daily

A few weeks ago, we featured some cool clothes for women. Since a number of readers pointed out that men wear clothes too, we figured that it’s only fair to highlight some men’s wear as well. Here, then, are some stylish, casual for the males in your life.

Long Sleeve Hood (prAna)

I mean, you look, ah, almost, um, pretty decent.” If you don’t have a teenage girl around the house, you have no idea what an incredible compliment that is. 2) “Hey, can I have that shirt?” The Long Sleeve Hoodie is also from organic cotton and recycled polyester and is incredibly comfortable and lightweight. But the unique design is what will attract the most attention. It comes in black, charcoal, starling (a very light green), and denim (blue). $49.

Bridger Jean (prAna)

These well-made jeans also generate a lot more compliments (ranging from “nice pants” to “do you have a date tonight?”) than the Costco jeans we usually wear. Bridger Jeans come in a variety of colors, including, blue, nautical (blue), and mud (grey). $89.

Unified Tee (Dare 2b)

dare2b unified tIf you’re looking for workout clothes—or at least clothes that will make others think that you work out—Dare 2b has exactly what you need. The Unified Tee is made from soft, lightweight, stretchy, 100% polyester fabric that’s cool and airy. And thanks to some serious sweat-wicking technology and anti-bacterial odor control treatment, it dries quickly and doesn’t smell bad after a workout. Comes in a variety of colors and in sizes ranging from XXS to XXXXXL (that’s a lot of Xs). It also has a neat little loop behind the neck that’s designed as a headphone port and keeps your corded earbuds from getting tangled. Prices vary.

Undulate Short (Dare 2b)

Undulate shorts are part of Dare 2b’s Men’s Active line and are designed with comfort and performance in mind. On the outside, they’re made from 100% polyester, water-repellant, moisture-wicking, windshell fabric and are showerproof, quick-drying, and so lightweight that you may forget that you’re wearing anything at all. There’s also plenty of reflective detailing for enhanced nighttime visibility. On the inside, there’s a supportive mesh brief for, well, support. In between the inside and outside, there’s a nice zippered security pocket with a headphone port. All in all, they’re perfect for light workouts, intense workouts, or for walking down to the block for your post-workout coffee—even if you didn’t actually work out at all. As with the Unified Tee, Undulate shorts come in many sizes and colors. Prices vary.
