Workout Gear for Guys

You want to get in shape and look amazing. Maybe you are doing it to impress others, or maybe you want to do it just for yourself. Either way, you will need the proper gear to get started. You can’t workout in cargo shorts and flip flops, it’s just not safe (or fashionable!).  A few of the basics you need are sneakers, pants/shorts, shirt, and jacket (if it’s cold). Then you will want a gym bag to put it all in.

Sneakers
The thing about sneakers, is that they’re not all made equal. A pair of converse may not be so great for running. And a pair of running shoes may not be best for weight lifting. You need to pick shoes that will match the type of activity you plan to do.

Stylish Stars of the NBA

Basketball players don’t show off their best stuff solely on the court, they make sure to bring their A-game to their off-court outfits. It’s important for basketball stars to become their own brand. Many are following in the footsteps of past superstars like Michael Jordan who pretty much created the branded footwear and sportswear line that many current athletes aspire to. Not all of these athletes will get the chance to design and sell a shoe with their name on it, but a few of them will. Those who perform well both on the court, and know how to cultivate their brand off court are the ones who seem to have the biggest fans and audience.

I’m going to take you through some well known, and not so well known, basketball players who exude style and are doing their best to look great on and off the court.

The World of Menswear for Women

It seems like a growing trend, but women wearing more male-centric clothes has had a place in history for many years. Nowadays it may seem more prevalent as general attitudes toward people wearing different styles has loosened a bit.

Females would be able to pass easily as men by sporting male clothing and a short hair cut back in the 1800 or early 1900s. But now this is such a common style of dress (especially in cities), people don’t pay it much attention anymore.

The 1920s were filled with androgynous styles. Particularly for women not wanting to wear dresses. But after WWII, when women were sporting military styles, traditional notions of femininity came back into the forefront and menswear for women went back into hiding.

There are now startups catering specifically to making men’s fashions more female friendly. These companies mainly tailor suits and dress shirts to fit female bodies. Before, and still today, women who want to wear menswear have to shop in the men’s section. These clothes tend to be ill fitting for many women.

This trend is referred to by some as Tomboy Fashion or Style. This is a very popular style of dress in Taiwan, as well as the US. Buzzfeed has a great article citing some Instagram accounts that have tomboy style posts. These include singer Ellie Goulding, and US Women’s Soccer player Ashlyn Harris.

Although many masculine women prefer this style of dress, it’s not just for them! Take a look at these photos and you’ll see how women’s and menswear is colliding…. and looking amazing!
