If you’re a guy looking for athleisure clothing, let us help you out! Here are 10 brands that sell athleisure products.
We’ve all heard of athleisure, but are you wondering where you can actually buy some high-quality athleisure pieces? This guide will help.
Best Men’s Athleisure Brands
Here are the best men’s athleisure brands in no particular order
Even though its founder may not agree with its direction, Lululemon is still the brand that’s most closely associated with athleisure.
You’ll find plenty of athleisure staples, including the ever-popular ABC joggers and Pace Breaker shorts. You can also shop their business casual selection, which even has a blazer.
Their garments are some of the more elevated athleisure garments, so if you’re looking for really versatile clothes, Lululemon is a good place to start.
Vuori is a big name in the athleisure scene, with many of its fans claiming that it’s just as good as (if not better than) Lululemon. And that’s due in large part to Vuori’s chill, versatile approach to design.
Take a look at the Kore Short and the Ponto Performance Pant – two of the company’s best sellers – and you’ll start to get why Vuori is at the top of so many lists.
It also helps that the brand’s DreamKnit™ jersey material is so soft and comfortable (and made from 89% recycled materials).
Depending on who you ask, Ten Thousand may not count as a purely athleisure-focused brand. That’s because the company places more of an emphasis on function with their simply named products (like the Durable Shirt or the Tech Parka).
However, Ten Thousand makes this list because they make some of the most refined athletic-style wear out there. The pieces are minimal yet stylish, and while they don’t focus on the leisure aspect as much as other companies, their stuff still looks and feels great.
Since its founding in 2016, Rhone has risen to the top of the athleisure market thanks to its premium clothing that gracefully blends casual and technical elements.
Rhone’s more polished take on athleisure is a big reason for its popularity. Items like the Commuter Pant and Gramercy Pullover are just as inspired by business casual dress as they are by gym clothes.
That makes Rhone one of the few brands you could actually wear to work.
If you’re after everyday basics, then check out Public Rec. Their All Day Every Day line (which includes pants, joggers, and shorts) is ideal for working from home or lounging.
These clothes are definitely on the more casual end of things, but if that’s what you’re looking for, Public Rec can deliver. Read our full Public Rec review to find out if this brand is right for you.
Olivers brings a menswear-centric approach to athleisure, resulting in pieces that are both technical yet traditional. Its clothes aren’t overly athletic — rather, they’re classic-looking garments that are made to move with you.
If being able to wear athleisure in multiple types of situations is important to you, then Olivers is a brand you should be aware of.
While Mack Weldon doesn’t make the most sporty athleisure clothes, it’s a solid option for guys looking for more technical takes on daily essentials.
This NYC-based brand is most famous for its underwear, but it has a pretty expansive catalog. You can easily build a full athleisure outfit out of Mack Weldon clothes alone, and you can also grab some wardrobe staples like Oxford button-downs and chinos while you’re at it.
Reigning Champ is one of the most ubiquitous athletic clothing brands around today. The reason why is simple: its stuff is just really, really good.
In particular, RC’s midweight terry material is often lauded for its quality and comfort. These are garments that are built to last and look good doing so, which means you’ll still be able to rock your Reigning Champ gear even if athleisure goes out of style.
Everlane is one of those companies that hits the sweet spot between aesthetics and performance, and the same is true for its athleisure offerings.
Since Everlane isn’t an athleisure brand first and foremost, it takes technical garments and puts a stylish spin on them. The Track Crewneck Sweatshirt and the ReNew Air Pant are two excellent examples of how Everlane approaches athleisure.
Tracksmith is a brand inspired by one particular form of athleticism: running. Even though the New England brand doesn’t prioritize fashion, it still makes some great retro-inspired garments that you can incorporate into an athleisure look.
You can think of Tracksmith’s garments as performance clothing that just so happens to look good when you’re off the trail. Pieces like the Harrier Long Sleeve and Trackhouse Sweatshirt will serve you well whether you’re prepping for a marathon or simply “running” errands.

Hey Curtis! Take a look at our review of Lululemon. I’m 5’6″ and I have several Lulu pieces that fit well. Brock, who’s a bit shorter than me, also has found this to be a decent brand for many shorter guys. https://www.themodestman.com/lululemon-review/ .
Besides Lululemon, I’d personally recommend Adidas. Their XS performance shirts fit me quite well (see here) as do their performance soccer/running pants.
Hope that helps!
Ryan, thanks! And sorry about the typo (Modern Man vs. Modest Man) — I’m a Modest Man fan so shame on me.
