We may no longer be buying loungewear in bulk anymore, but we are still dressing casually. Occasionally, the average man might end up in a pair of sweatpants and joggers, but if you’re looking for casual wear items that’ll make a statement and up your fashion game, then go for a men’s tracksuit. The matching sets got their big break back in the 80s and 90s, thanks to the hip-hop OGs who rocked them proudly. One group, in particular, Run-D.M.C, basically put the Adidas tracksuit on the map with their hit single “My Adidas” and their style sensibility. And more than 30 years later, men’s tracksuits are just as stylish and trendy as ever.
Needless to say, a men’s tracksuit is something that will never get old. So what exactly makes them so desirable? For starters, tracksuits are super comfortable, and the fabric used to construct them is much softer and more durable than your standard sweatsuit. Not to mention, the jacket and pants coordinate with each other, but they are also versatile, allowing you to style them individually with other pieces.
With that in mind, we have seen some of the hottest brands give their take on what they deem to be the best tracksuit. So to help you ease your decision on which men’s tracksuits you should buy right now, we chose eight of our favorites that will have you walking in style.
1. Adidas Tricot Track Jacket
If you’re looking for a tracksuit that will stand against the test of time, according to style, then you can’t go wrong with the Adidas Tricot tracksuit. This set is a classic option that will never get old, and honestly, it looks good on any guy, no matter their age. It’s made from a 100% recycled polyester fabric that is moisture-wicking, making it a great staple to be active in or just for lounging. The tracksuit comes in four colorways: black, dark heather gray, legend ink and black scarlet.

2. Nike NOCTA Golf Track Jacket
For starters, we are shocked that the NOCTA tracksuit is still up for grabs. Not to mention, the matching white set is available in all sizes. If you aren’t familiar with NOCTA, it’s a subsidiary brand that Nike created with the rapper, Drake. He was inspired to make clothing based on the street style of Toronto, but he also wanted something comfortable and functional for people to wear while on the go, which makes this the perfect set for guys who have an active lifestyle. It has a lightweight and breathable design for all-day wear. The jacket and pants are made of a soft, woven fabric that is non-restricting. It also features side vents for airflow to prevent you from overheating on a warm day.

3. ZARA Stripe Sleeve Zip Sweatshirt
Now, this might be a fast-fashion brand, but Zara never disappoints when it comes to finding trendy clothing that’s reasonably priced and stylish. What we love most about this matching set is its simple design, making it perfect for layering. Just style the piece with your favorite graphic tee and some Converse for a casual fit. The jacket and pants are even great pieces to style alone with other garments in your wardrobe. If you aren’t feeling the red set, the tracksuit comes in cream and navy too.

Every man deserves to have at least one velour matching set in their wardrobe. And if you don’t already own one, then you better snag this one up before it sells out.

You’ll love wearing this jacket and pants whenever you go out because it will be a head-turner every time.
