Monocle Voyage: Sharp Threads for Globetrotters

For those unfamiliar with Monocle magazine, it is a super slick publication that focuses on international affairs, business, culture and design. When we heard the Monocle brand, which also head up a radio station, concept stores across five cities and a café in London, had launched their inaugural fashion collection we were a little more than intrigued.

Whether roaming on foot or sitting in-flight, globetrotting takes precedence in the design of each garment. Designer Daniela Diletto found inspiration in the hectic, international lifestyle of Monocle Editor-in-Chief, Tyler Brûlé. According to Diletto, the Monocle Voyage man is ‘a well-traveled gentleman who is always looking for high standards of comfort and functionality’. Amen to that.

We love the extreme edit of this capsule collection. Consisting of just five pieces that have been designed to suit all manner of climates, packing just five great, beautifully crafted pieces into the world’s smallest suitcase is the ultimate travel dream, are we right?

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.
