The Best Investment this year: Luxurious Sportswear by Thom Browne
The most significant style on street.
Since his debut in 2001, Thom Browne has been at the forefront of menswear. His signature style which challenged the accepted and increasing casualness of men's business dress, included cropped suits, three-button fastenings and tailoring that exposes the ankles and wrists.
Ever the chameleon, the designer also knows how to roll with the times and gradually extended into activewear with a playful and preppy twist on sweaters, sweatpants, hoodies and shorts.
Pivoting to a more laid-back aesthetic, Browne has won legions of younger fans which include rappers, musicians and even supermodels such as Kendall Jenner. You’ll note that Browne’s range of cozy activewear is instantly recognizable by the four stripes which adorn one arm or leg of each item.
Coming in tonal shades of dark-navy, black and grey, each piece feels sophisticated enough to wear to the office, styled with tailored pants and loafers. Or for a more polished take on your usual Adidas sweats and slides, you can choose to style each piece more casually at the weekend.
Browne’s preppy sensibility is also evident in the brand’s range of outerwear, which includes quilted jackets, anoraks and puffer coats. With a host of different sits on offer, you can choose to go for a slim-fit style or something that is more oversized.
Proving that there’s nothing he can’t turn his hand at, Thom Browne has even realised his own range of sportswear including swimming trunks and diving suits. You’ll even find a diving suit styled after one of Browne’s suits - you couldn’t get any more on-brand.
