Lululemon might be famous for their women’s yoga pants, but their men’s activewear is quietly some of the best on the market.
Their pieces bring the same modern style and performance features as some of the big brands like Nike and Adidas, but in some cases, Lululemon’s clothing is more comfortable and of higher quality. Plus, Lulu’s pieces are typically better suited for activities like yoga, stretching, hiking or cross-training, thanks to looser fits and softer materials.
In addition to activewear, Lululemon also produces everyday shirts and pants for men. These are designed for men on the go and will move with you from work to evening drinks and, in some cases, the gym.
Plus, most of Lulu’s menswear features their innovative zinc anti-stink fabric to keep your clothes smelling fresh sweat after sweat.
If you’re thinking of giving Lululemon a try, we have rounded up some of their best-selling pieces to get your wardrobe started. Check them out below.
1. At Ease Hoodie
Created for supreme comfort and that satisfied, after-workout feeling, the At Ease Hoodie is getting rave reviews from critics and users alike. It’s made from a soft, breathable material that has a slight stretch for ease of movement. The non-cuffed sleeves and hem add to the casual feel, and the included extras, like space for your phone, make this feel like an intuitive design.
2. Fast and Free Short Sleeve Recycled
This workout t-shirt is the perfect breathable top for all of your extraneous activities. Like many of the other products on this list, it’s made with anti-stink fabric that not only wicks away sweat but works to get rid of the smell as well. This shirt in particular is made with super-lightweight mesh fabric that’ll keep up with your pace. It’s designed for running in particular, with Breathe Light fabric that dries quickly so you can stay on track and in the moment.
3. ABC Jogger 30″
BEST STREETWEAR JOGGERS
Made with Lululemon’s ABC (anti-ball crushing) technology, these joggers can go straight from the treadmill to the subway without losing style points. They’re designed to be on the move with you without constraining or restricting anything. They’re made with Warpstreme fabric that has four-way stretch for travel, your commute or a regular day at the gym.
4. Metal Vent Tech Sleeveless 2.0
BEST WORKOUT TOP
In the words of Lululemon, this shirt was “born to perform.” The tank was designed for running and training, and thanks to the no-chafe, seamless construction and breathable fabric, it’s sure to be your constant gym companion. And that’s okay, because you don’t have to worry about it getting stinky over time. This sleeveless shirt has built-in anti-stink technology and it comes in a number of good-looking colors and styles.
5. Pace Breaker Short 7″ Linerless
MOST STYLISH SHORTS
We love these performance shorts for summer with fun patterns like the grey camo ones pictured below. These shorts are not just attractive, they’re built for keeping your essential items close by while you dominate in the gym. They’re made with lightweight Swift fabric with four-way stretch and sweat-wicking capabilities that’ll keep you high and dry. The pockets are zippered so you won’t lose anything valuable on those explosive squat jumps, and the shorts come in a wide variety of unique colors and patterns.
6. Always in Motion Boxer Mesh
One of the most overlooked pieces of workout gear is underwear. The type you choose can make a huge difference to your comfort during a run, weight session or yoga practice. That’s why Lululemon has designed the Always in Motion Boxer Mesh. These boxers are made from a super breathable, soft mesh modal fabric that’s quick-drying for your convenience.
7. Channel Cross Short 7″
BEST SWIM TRUNKS
Everyone loves that swim trunks are perfect for water, sand and sun, but no one actually likes wearing them out and about, until now. These swim shorts from Lululemon will look great in and out of the water and maintain a high-performance fabric feel. The water-repellent fabric has a four-way stretch and Xtra Life Lycra that resists chlorine. The secure back pocket will hold onto your items as you splash about, but please make sure to remove your expensive smartphone before taking a dive.
8. Commission Long Sleeve Shirt
BEST BUTTON DOWN
It might seem odd for an athleisure clothing company to make a button-down shirt, but we love the simple style of the Commission Long Sleeve Shirt. This slightly more formal top has a soft, silky feel thanks to the cotton polyester blend. It looks just like a cotton button-down but is way more comfortable. And, as an added benefit, this long sleeve shirt has been treated with No-Stink Zinc to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria, meaning you don’t have to worry if you get yourself into any sweaty situations around the office.
9. T.H.E. Short 9″ Linerless
BEST LINERLESS SHORTS

These shorts have both dependable pockets and a specialized media pocket for holding your tunes while you rock out at the gym or on the trail.

11. T.H.E. Tab Sock

Tab Socks are lightweight running socks with cushioning at the heel and toe as well as a breathable mesh fabric. Plus, each pair comes with one right-foot and one left-foot specific sock to ensure bulk-free wear in the toes.
12. City Sweat Short French Terry 9″
These sweat shorts strike a balance between ultra-comfy Netflix-binging bottoms and performance workout shorts. This versatility comes from a soft French terry fabric that’s been altered to be more breathable and stretchy, so you can jump, stretch or run with ease. They also feature three pockets (two on the front and one in the back), making them usable while running errands.
13. Surge Hybrid Pant 29″
BEST RUNNING PANT
Yes, they’re $128, but these Surge Hybrid Pants still provide some of the best bang-for-your-buck of any athletic gear. They’re ideal for warming up or running as the cut maintains warmth yet keeps the fabric out of the way of your quads. Still, the low-key, stylish look makes these pants great for wearing around town, too, and are even better for traveling.
