Workout Clothes You Can Wear Outside the Gym: Men’s Edition
Get rid of that ratty college T-shirt and upgrade your workout wardrobe with these looks. By Laura Wainman
Comments () | Published February 2, 2012

Okay, gents: You asked and we heard. Last week we offered ladies several stylish alternatives to grubby gym gear. Today, we’re taking a page out of Barney Stinson’s playbook and showing the guys how to “tracksuit up” in style.

While many men resort to ratty T-shirts with armpit stains for the gym (you know who you are), style-conscious guys know that pumping iron is no excuse to not look your best.

A muted color scheme—such as gray, black, navy, white, and an occasional copper red thrown in when you feel like standing out—will help you look pulled together but effortlessly so; you don’t want to seem like you’re trying too hard.

If you’ll be wearing your gym gear post-workout, the same guidelines we gave the ladies apply. Shell out the extra dough for high-performance fabrics that wick perspiration. It’s not too appetizing to eat lunch across from someone whose clothes are dripping with sweat.

Click through the slideshow to see some of our favorite fashionable workout clothes.
