Better Bedding

We spend a third of our lives in bed. It's a place meant for rest, relaxation (and hopefully a little recreation). And even though most of us are fine spending the necessary cash on some nice shoes or a jacket, we neglect our sheets—an item we use everyday. You don't want to be the guy with ratty sheets. Especially when you've got an overnight guest. Here are four brands making quality linens at a fair price.



This temperature-regulating technical fabric is 50% more moisture-wicking than standard cotton and extremely smooth to the touch.

Thread Count

It's essentially a marketing ploy. Quality 250-thread-count sheets can be a lot softer than cheap 900-thread-count sets which can feel like sandpaper. Forget the numbers and just go with what feels good.



Available in a wide range of colors and sizes—including Twin XL.
