Here’s the thing about great yoga clothing – it’s really not just for yoga. The comfortable, casual menswear that’s best for practising yoga is also great to wear when in the gym, relaxing at home, travelling – in fact, if you opt for some of the smarter gear available, pretty much anywhere.

First and foremost though, it’s important to make sure your yoga gear is fit for purpose, in that it allows you the freedom to move on the yoga mat. Here are our five favourite brands for yoga gear for men and a few of our top picks from their ranges to consider.

To truly express yourself on the yoga mat you need shorts that are loose and elastic enough that they don’t limit your movements, but also don’t ride up when you go into inverted positions. Lululemon’s In Mind shorts are made with stretchy, quick-drying fabric and have a stay-put hem to protect your modesty.

If you prefer to wear trousers during yoga, you can pick up some incredibly adaptable bits of gear that are great in and out of the studio. These pants are comfortable and sweat-wicking, but also have zipped pockets (including two on the back) and are subtly styled so you can wear them to and from the studio too.

You’ll notice from this list that a lot of yoga gear shares a few key features. One of these, unfortunately, is a high price. That’s where Decathlon comes in with its wallet-friendly range of yoga gear, which includes this tight-fitting tank that will keep your torso under wraps during inverted moves.

The extra long back hem on this vest provides cover as you contort yourself on the mat, and the side vents ensure you’re not restricted during your routine. The Dri-FIT fabric is the same stuff used in Nike’s running and training gear, and is designed to keep you dry and cool even as you start to work up a sweat.

There are both trousers and tights available in Nike’s yoga range, with the former earning our vote thanks to the roomy gusset for a greater range of movement than we’ve come to expect. At the other end of the trousers, the tapered legs ensure there’s no annoying flapping of fabric during your session.

No seams means more comfort, and this tight top also works as a base layer for all manner of other sports beyond yoga. It has thumb holes to help ensure the sleeves stay in place, and it wicks sweat away and dries quickly. Bamboo is also naturally resistant to odours, so if you enjoy a more intense style of yoga where sweat is invariably on the agenda, it’s a great option.

The tapered legs and long ankle cuff on these ultra-comfortable pants are key to ensuring they stay in place during your flow, and the bamboo fabric is as stretchy as it is soft, so your movements will be uninhibited.

The perfect amount of layers for yoga shorts is two, as exemplified by Manduka’s Dyad shorts. The tight, quick-drying inner layer provides support, while the outer layer protects your modesty and contains a couple of handy pockets. The outer layer on the Dyad shorts is also cut close to the thigh so they stay in place even when you thrust your legs into the air.

The fabric used for this tee feels smooth and cool to the touch, which makes it extremely pleasant to wear for yoga, a weights session, or indeed just out and about. The fit is relaxed but the tee tapers a little towards the waist so it won’t hang loose or ride up during yoga.

If the only thing stopping you from pulling off a perfect handstand is the fear that your tee or tank will slide down and reveal your torso to the world, then get this clever top that stays in place even when you’re upside down. And even if you have no intention of ever attempting a handstand, then you should still try this top, because the hidden elasticated band stops the tank from riding up in any inverted yoga pose. And it’s made from a soft, stretchy and sweat-wicking material that’s well suited to energetic flows.

Picking a colour is about more than just style with these sweatpants, because the grey version is made from a heavier weave that’s better for slow yoga sessions and, well, lounging, while the blue pants use a lighter fabric that you’ll be glad of during sweatier sessions. Both are made using leftover cuts from Warrior Addict’s other clothes, a laudable idea that’s part of the brand’s zero-waste initiative.

This two-layer pair will both protect your modesty during inverted poses and keep you comfortable down there – the stretchy lower layer is sweat-wicking, plus it’s made from an anti-bacterial fabric to stop unpleasant odours building up. The top layer is made from recycled plastic bottles, which is a nice touch.
