Upgrade Your Fitness Gear with Mr Porter Sport

We don’t normally play favorites when it comes to online retailers, but if there’s one site we can always count on for good taste and superior quality brands, it’s Mr Porter. Now guys worried about their wardrobe style for the gym, field and track too can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as today the website just launched Mr Porter Sport.

“We know that sport and fitness are integral to our customers’ interests and day-to-day lives, so beyond offering the best in men’s fashion, we want to offer our global audience the best in men’s sports apparel as well,” explains Toby Bateman, Buying Director,, adding that brands were selected for both their technical performance abilities and style. Accordingly, the category addresses nine so-called disciplines including running, cycling, tennis, golf, training, outdoor, swimming and sailing, and plans to introduce ski and surf later in the year.

Kevin Hart’s New Fashion Line Strives to Make Athleisure Attainable
Kevin Hart Fabletics

Fabletics is a buzzy activewear brand, co-founded by Kate Hudson, under TechStyle Fashion Group, that until now catered to women seeking high quality workout wear at accessible prices. Newly launched, Fabletics Men has partnered with actor, comedian, and businessman Kevin Hart to make simple men’s activewear much more attainable.

“The activewear space wants to intimidate,” the Jumanji star, who has also invested in the brand, writes in a press release. “[It wants you] to spend way too much cash on complicated tech you don’t need. On overpriced labels. On streetwear that tries too hard to be cool. But at Fabletics Men? We’re going to give you exactly what you want at a price that won’t scare the hell out of you.”

Askov Finlayson Debuts the World’s First Climate-Positive Parka

Back in 2011, two proud sons of the north started a small men’s outfitter in their hometown of Minneapolis. Brothers Eric and Andrew Dayton called their shop Askov Finlayson after the two small northern towns that share an interstate exit just outside the Superior National Forest. Their goal was to celebrate the north by equipping Minnesota's hardy outdoor adventurers with the finest apparel and gear being made in the region. Their collection of sustainably made, heritage-quality products from Midwestern makers began drawing attention. In 2014, Esquire named Askov Finlayson one of the "Best Men's Stores in America." In 2015, GQ shortlisted it among "The 10 Best Menswear Stores in America."

Due to popular demand, Askov Finlayson began expanding its collection with a private label collection of beanies, pants, and other apparel. When these private-label items proved to be the store’s bestsellers, Askov Finlayson went all in. After shutting down for several months, the brand re-emerged with a new identity as a designer and retailer of high-quality garments that celebrate northern culture by helping preserve its climate.
