All-Black Everything

Dressing head to toe in black has long been a solid move favoured by the clinically cool and it’s easy to see why: it’s slick, it’s sophisticated, and it’ll never go out of style.

Co-Ord Tracksuit

For best results, choose something dark and free from excessive branding, then make it pop with some contrasting sneakers.

Casual Minimalism

Traditionally, tracksuit bottoms are a young man’s game. But being able to exercise restraint when dressing oneself is what separates the boys from the men.

Lightweight Layering

Opt for sweatpants in a classic neutral colourway (grey, navy or black) and team with a tonal, slim-cut T-shirt and a sporty windbreaker, bomber or coach jacket.


On foot, opt for a technical sneaker. Knitted styles are still hugely popular and boast superior comfort to almost any other style of shoe. Darker colourways offer maximum versatility.

High Low

Dress them down by layering with a pair of sweatpants and a crew-neck sweater or hoodie, finishing things off with some quality accessories...


A zip-up hoodie or track jacket is an excellent option up top, while a polo tucked in at the waistband can lend things a slightly more dressed-up edge.

Relaxing of dress codes across this story

Until relatively recently, sweatpants didn’t have a place in a man’s life outside of working out or, more likely, vegetating on the sofa.
