Less Cash, More Cashmere

The temperatures have already started to drop which means we’re about to all experience some major withdrawal from the scorching summer months. Bummertown. But at least the cooler weather has its upside – cashmere. Cashmere is a great investment. You can wear it under a jacket on those frigid days, and leave it on in the office with out feeling overheated. The naturally lightweight, soft material everybody wants to wear, but not everybody can afford – until now (wahoo!). More and more retailers are making the miraculous goat product available at an affordable cost.

-Black Brown 1826 – which is available at Lord and Taylor online and in-store – has the most essential and confortable cashmere sweaters out there. The classic V-neck is a staple, and you’d be crazy not to run out and get one. Or two. Or three (or ask for some for the holidays!) Prices vary depending on sales – you can pick yours up for $112.50.

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.
