Gadget Lovers Can Have It All With Alphyn Industries’ High Tech Menswear

Technology has made monumental changes in the way we live, and it’s starting to impact the way we dress. For evidence, look no further than San Francisco-based Alphyn Industries.

Alphyn Industries produces a line of functional garments that straddles the line between wearable tech and Savile Row tailoring. Crafted from military-grade materials, Alphyn Industries designs mens jackets, shirts, pants and accessories that integrate your iDevices such as iPhones and iPads right into their design. While you walk or drive there’s no fumbling around in your pockets to reach you phone. Instead devices fit into specially-designed, ergonomic pouches that match the natural contours of the body.

The Alphyn Industries RGEN V1 long sleeve v neck is made of super soft blended cotton and silver-coated nylon fibers meant to kill the bacteria in sweat (and protect the wearer from harmful electromagnetic radiation). Did we mention they look great, too? While the v neck will set you back $130, it’s nothing compared to the cost of replacing a phone left at the gym, in a bar or on the seat of a taxi. Alphyn’s PADX-1 Ledge Wearcom jacket features a koala-like belly pouch that gives you easy, hands free access to your iPad, and has special straps that distribute the device’s weight across your shoulders and upper body.

Alphyn Industries clothes are all about safety, says co-founder and CEO Ben Raviv. His products are meant to increase the user’s spacial awareness and protect devices from getting damaged or dirty while in use.

Speaking by phone from this year’s Consumer Electronics Showcase in Las Vegas Raviv said he hopes Alphyn Industries clothes become a platform for the development of lifestyle apps that enable people to use their devices for important functions while their hands are greasy or dirty. Beyond its line of functional, fashionable threads, Raviv says Alphyn Industries is expanding into professional products to serve the needs of healthcare and utilities workers who are increasingly dependent on iPads but need to keep their hands free while performing essential tasks.

Don’t be jealous ladies, at this year’s CES the company debuted the Valencia jeggings, a pair of stretch denim pants that is its first product for women.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

It turns out that learning to tie your shoes in Kindergarten may not have been the win you and your parents thought it was. Men’s slip-on shoes are all the rage these days. Call them ugly all you want — they’re easy to slip on when you’re in a rush and cozy to boot.

Maybe you’re a resident sneakerhead, or perhaps you simply don’t feel like splurging on a pair of designer men’s slip-on shoes. You might simply not be able to get passed the “ugly shoe” label of Birkenstocks (or the more budget-friendly dupes). Still, the ease of slip-on shoes is a massive perk.
