The modern man has to contend with the challenges of an ever-increasingly fast-paced lifestyle. From work, to relationships, his social life and taking care of his health and fitness, it can be a constant balancing act. That’s why you need to be strategic with your shopping. When shopping for clothes, accessories and your gadgets the key is to look for dual use buys. Here’s our edit of multi-tasking sporty must-haves to make your life simpler (and more stylish).
When it comes to clothes the trick is finding pieces that crossover from your casual day-to-day style to the gym. This tee from Nat Taubman’s new Aussie label Lapse is a perfect example.
That is the top sorted, now how about some cool pants? We couldn’t go past these quilted jogger pants, also from Lapse. These pants will have you looking your best wandering around on weekends or when worn during your workout.
A cool pair of trainers is a must to complete any modern gent’s dual workout/weekend look. We’re staying street smart with this pair from New Balance.

The right trainers can also be a cool way to make a suit look edgy.
