Men’s Summer Shorts are the Sartorial answer to women’s Yoga Pants.
A lot of times men ask me, what is the men’s sartorial answer to women’s yoga pants that have taken the world by storm?
To dive into that question, one must examine what is the charm of women’s yoga pants and why they went viral ?
Women’s yoga pants are equivalent to Spanx that you can wear outside.They compress and lift in the right places as well as provide versatility and freedom of movement.
You can easily go from working out at the gym to the restaurant with only slight modifications in wardrobe and still keep yoga pants on. (I think from my previous blog post some of you might know about my current “love affair” with yoga pants).
So what would be the men’s fashion answer? I believe they are not another men spandex pants but rather classic American SHORTS!
Shorts provide that casual coolness and comfort for men as yoga pants provide for women…some men even do yoga in shorts (although I am not sure if it is comfortable in that case). They don’t compress and lift the butt, but they are as versatile as yoga pants.
Men can wear shorts to the beach, to the office, to grab a quick bite and to play golf…it’s comfortable and looks chic!
One of my favorite brands is Old Bull Lee from Manhattan Beach California. www.oldbulllee.com
They make everything in California; shorts look stylish and with the highest possible attention to details, which sometimes only the wearer knows.
Since summer season is here and 4th of July is approaching, I thought I’ll mention them for my fashion conscious friends, just in case they want to try on a New Summer Look for their backyard barbeque!
I was in my yoga class meditating, after we finished the “challenging” routine, when I’ve opened my eyes before everybody else did and in an instant had a “Eureka” moment!
I looked at the people in the room who were still sitting with their eyes closed and meditating and I ” figured out” why Mona Lisa is smiling!
I have never read if there is a specific research done about this but looking at the Mona Lisa’s smile and at the peaceful smile at the faces of people in meditation I could not help but notice the parallel in both.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you had a great year and have many things to be grateful for. My yoga instructor says that feeling of gratitude acts like a “reboot” system in our bodies. When we sit down quietly and think about all those things that we are grateful for, out bodies tend to relax, stress tends to subside and we feel overall sense of well-being that is rejuvenating for our body and mind.
So wishing you to “reboot” your systems and have a great time!
And I am grateful for the wonderful WordPress community that we have here!
