White Crew Neck Tee & Camo Shorts

Negative Slub Pocket Crew Neck in White

Camo Windjammer Hybrid in Desert

When you go with a bold pattern like camo on your shorts, you can afford to play it pretty conservative with your t-shirt. That’s the approach we’ve taken with this first outfit, which goes with a basic white shirt along with our stylish Camo Windjammer Hybrid shorts. Our Negative Slub Pocket Crew Neck shirts are 100% cotton for a relaxed look and great comfort.

The shorts may be focused on style, but they don’t lack for performance features. The Quick Dry Fabric is 92% polyester and 8% spandex, allowing you to be comfortable even if you have things to do after hitting the gym. The shorts also include a rear zip pocket to keep your things secure and a 9’’ inseam that will be suitable for most men.

Coral Tee & Denim Shorts

Garment Dyed Slub Pocket Tee

Micrograph Windjammer Hybrid in Denim


For our second outfit, we are going to turn things around from the first option. This time, it’s the shirt that will make a big impression with a bold color, while the shorts are more understated. The Garment Dyed Slub Pocket Tee we have chosen here is featured in the Coral color, a bright shade that is sure to draw attention as you go through a workout. This is another 100% cotton shirt, and it features a left chest pocket.

While the color we have selected for the Micrograph Windjammer shorts is called denim, don’t mistake that for the feel of the fabric. This is a blended fabric with 90% polyester and 10% spandex. That blend gives the material a lightweight feel and allows it to dry quickly. Other features include a 9’’ inseam, interior mesh pocketing, and an elastic waist with drawstring.

Light Blue Henley Tee & Navy Shorts

Negative Slub Henley in Island Paradise

Micrograph Windjammer Hybrid in Navy

This is a great outfit for the man who wants to head to the gym feeling comfortable and stylish, without making too much of a fashion statement. The light blue shade of our Island Paradise color gives off a relaxed vibe but won’t grab too much attention. This goes nicely with the Navy shorts, creating an overall look that most men would be comfortable taking out in public.

A Henley might not be your first thought when looking for a shirt to wear to the gym, but this one is worth consideration. It has three buttons, so you can open the collar if you are getting a little too warm during a workout. And the 100% cotton material provides a natural feel that you may love.

Red Crew Neck Tee & Light Blue Shorts

Negative Slub Pocket Crew Neck in Faded Rose

Geo Print Windjammer Hybrid in Sky Blue

We’ve created one more attention-grabbing outfit option to wrap up our list. This one turns to our Geo Print Windjammer shorts to make a statement, and the light blue shade of those shorts goes even further to claim attention at the gym. Paired with the Faded Rose shade of our crew neck t-shirt, you’ll have an outfit that is going to stand out from the crowd. A bright red t-shirt might be a little too much here, but the softer red that this shade provides is a nice complement for the light blue and white tones that make up the pattern on the shorts.
