When it comes to clothes to break a sweat in, everyone knows Lululemon.

Their stuff is totally OK.

Gets the job done.

But standard.

If you're looking for gym kits and lounge clothing that go above and beyond, here are a few labels that blend exceptional quality and fit with stand-out-from-the-crowd designs:

Outdoor Voices

Partially owned by upscale French fashion label APC, Outdoor Voices have mastered the art of extremely minimal workout clothes with extremely flattering fits. Their Runningman Sweats are the comfiest things you'll ever wear. Zero hyperbole.

Reigning Champ

Canadian label Reigning Champ is renowned for their fleece but they also make some of the best technical workout clothes money can buy. Their Stretch Nylon Shorts are particularly drool-worthy, as is their Shell Jacket. And of course, they have plenty of cotton styles if you want to embrace your inner Muhammad Ali with more traditional gym fits.


The athleticwear label from Taylor Stitch and Huckberry has mastered menswear basics you can literally do anything: run, swim, lounge, hang. And best of all, nearly the entire collection is currently on sale.


The most unique choice on our list, Tracksmith was founded by a former Rapha employee who wanted to bring a unique style and aesthetic to the running world. The heritage-inspired garb is meant to take on marathons and miles for years to come and looks awesome on anyone who wants to make a statement.


SF-based label OLIVERS does two things really well: deadly simple workout clothes that feel great and look great and a handful of minimalistic clothing essentials that bring technical fabrics out of the gym and into everyday life.

Ten Thousand

Sleek and modern, there's a reason gyms like Equinox have teamed up with Ten Thousand. The quality is especially respected in the high-level Crossfit world and the dark and stormy styles look great in any fitness situation.
