For situations that require versatility, style and ease of movement, it can be tricky to find clothes that fit all three seamlessly. That goes for commuting, heading to or from the gym, traveling — you name it. OLIVERS has made that hectic lifestyle much easier for the active guy in recent years, with a strong selection of slick, commuter-ready apparel — think comfortable henleys, pants and tailored athletic shorts. The brand’s collection is getting a bigger boost now with the introduction of the Movement Kit, yet another way for the brand to outfit active guys in a more refined manner than logo-heavy athletic gear.
The Movement Kit, released on March 22, features a 100 percent merino wool shirt known as the Convoy Tee, and a pair of durable, comfortable shorts inspired by classic chino shorts — but built from a deceptively comfortable nylon/spandex blend. Lest those pieces sound too technical for you, know that the Convoy Tee is designed to stay cool and breathable. The Capital Shorts also blur the lines between technical design and straightforward style, with a tailored, athletic fit, side draft pockets and rear single welt pockets for functionality and clean lines. They’re also bar-tacked for durability at stress points. A crappy pair of standard gym shorts, these are not. Available in two effortless, easily wearable colors — dark navy and a lighter shade of cerulean blue — they could quickly become a spring and summer go-to for everything from coffee runs to crosstown bike rides.
The collection’s two merino tee offerings deliver that same combination of quality, mobility and style — they’re also available in two unique, versatile colors. Throw in the construction you get from made-in-the-USA garments, and you’ve got yourself a nice value for $58 as part of the site’s pre-sale. The styling potential of both garments is pretty limitless — pair up the merino tee under a khaki blazer for an upgraded Casual Friday, or suit up in OLIVERS with both the shorts and that tee. Add in classic white sneakers, and you’ve got a stylish, sport-inspired look that’s an absolute upgrade from a normal off-duty kit.
Get the Movement Kit at the brand’s Web site starting March 22.
