Athletic Formal Style for Men: Being Fit Does Not Mean a Lack in Formalwear Attire

Athletic Formal Style; Yes, indeed, good taste is often part of a holistic style approach of a contemporary man. Especially in our era, where the love for fitness has evolved into a new lifestyle, formal menswear has naturally evolved into a sartorial guide for the man who loves his fit physique and constantly seeks refined clothing concepts to feel confident and sharp.

As more and more men adopt a healthier and balanced lifestyle, and love for workout has become an integral part of their daily routine, they inevitably turn to their pop and sport celebrities to get inspired and as a matter of fact, they look for a more casual attire that suits their demanding everyday lives. However, such a choice often fails to fully meet all occasions, such as a business meeting during the day, social events, or even first dates. And this is where the story of the athletic formal type of wear begins!

Quality Fabrics: The primary rule of a well-dressed man

The fabrics used for the garments - often a source of creative inspiration for us and an important pillar of our very philosophy - are of crucial importance for their performance traits. In order to retain comfort and versatility, choose pieces made from high-performance stretch fabrics. Some of the exclusive fabrics used for this collection use innovative textile technology -unlike that of the traditional mill houses - that blends groundbreaking synthetic fibers together with natural yarns.

Another reason elasticized fabrics are popular for men with athletic body types is for their ability to adapt to the lines of a toned body. The muscular structure of the male athletic body doesn't align well with the strict lines of dapper woven and rigid fabrics, and in some cases even providing exceptional tailoring, one may feel constricted in certain zones such as legs, shoulders, and triceps.
