The Athlete’s Guide to Active Suiting

Look sharp and stay comfortable.


In recent years, classic men’s suit silhouettes have been infused with technical fabrics, lending a different level of comfort for the sharply dressed man. Finding the common ground between active and tailored, these suits are breathable and have multi-directional stretch, appealing to everyone from men on the go to notable athletes. Stand-up paddleboarder and racer Kai Lenny prefers boardshorts and an aloha shirt much of the time, but when the occasion calls for a suit, his style is based in this hybrid function. “Of course it has to look good,” Lenny said. “But at the end of the day, it can’t be uncomfortable.” If you’re in the same boat as Lenny, explore our favorite active suiting selections and invest in a suit designed for both comfort and style.
