Words By Brittany Lyons

While designer leisurewear is typically associated with rappers and the like, who’s to say the modern fashion appreciator can’t partake too? For the everyday modern man, an investment into a branded hoodie or track set should be considered as a lifetime layering piece. Layering as well as matching each item back with pieces a little more polished, will ensure a sports-luxe look that we know many of you appreciate.

With comfort comes versatility, and sweats are the ultimate in comfort dressing. While the price tag of this group of sweats don’t necessary suggest you should be running a mile in them, they provide a certain luxury that certainly justifies the investment. Ooze cool with this selection of sweats.

Most of the population would be comfortable with this calibre of sweat. An entry level jersey sweat is probably the style of leisurewear you’re most familiar with. Suggested by the name, historically this type of clothing was created to help you do exactly that. Sweat.

While these days we have highly engineered activewear that aid in speed, agility and airflow, back in the day folks used to wear a matching tracksuit to excel at their favourite sports. Widely used these days as anything but activewear, these hoodies and trackie-dacks are famously worn on a lazy Sunday spent on the couch. Don’t think for a second that these are a uniform for when you’re feeling yucky, these sweats are saved for when you want to slip into the deep descend of an utterly serene, relaxed state.
