Activewear Alert: The Best Men’s Joggers And Jackets For Spring
Get comfy with the coolest new athleisure jackets and joggers.
Spring signals the return of many things, chief among them more relaxed, leisurely dressing — instead of bundling up in a parka for days on end. That doesn’t mean it’s OK to step out in just anything, though. The best activewear helps you bridge the gap seamlessly between play and performance as you step back out into the world.
Think: All of the comfort, none of the fuss and a healthy dose of style points for whatever lies ahead, be it marathon road trips or casual days about town, from the coffee shop to your favorite brewery patio.
Today’s activewear is anything but boring, with comfortable performance fabrics, streamlined cuts and versatile style in spades. You’re going to be busy this season, so get yourself some gear that looks as good as it feels, without the baggage of typical athletic logo sweatpants and jackets. Here, we’ve rounded up our favorites in both categories, and they’re anything but sloppy.
Vuori Clothing Sunday Performance Joggers
Vuori is a favorite of plenty of off-duty celebs, including Chris Pratt. Steal the Jurassic World star’s style with these tailored sweats, made from surprisingly luxe fabric and featuring handy details like a side zip pocket for your EDC. $89
Goodlife Contrast Loop Terry Joggers
Turn your typical gym sweats into a pair you can actually wear outside of the house with these old-school contrast stitching joggers. Made from a comfortable poly-cotton blend, they wear very well with a Goodlife pocket tee and retro runner sneakers. $135
WOLACO Warren Pants
For a true athletic pant feel in a streamlined cut, go with what WOLACO calls its luxe performance pant, with moisture-wicking properties and a lifetime guarantee. These are so comfortable, you’ll want to get a pair for the gym, a pair for road trips and a pair for days around town. $118

Buck Mason takes heritage styles and makes them splurge-worthy, as evidenced by the retro cool of this handy, versatile zip jacket. Pair it with slim light wash jeans for a bit of a throwback look, but be sure you’re wearing it over one of Buck Mason’s rugged henleys. $95
