Of course, what you're looking for in a performance shirt depends on your own personal needs. The Valet. team takes fitness pretty damn seriously, so we thought it would be helpful to hear about the shirts we rely on when we sweat. Herewith, the five gym shirts we're loving at the moment.


The 5 Best
Workout Shirts
for Men

Most Comfortable

“It's as soft as your favorite vintage tee, but it also has excellent moisture-wicking and stink-fighting properties. Plus, I really like how the raglan sleeves allow for optimal movement.”

Reign short sleeve shirt,
$64 by Rhone

Best for the Price

“I don't ask too much from my gym shirts, but this one is lightweight and stretchy. It washes well and I liked that I could buy five of them and update my gym wardrobe all at once.”

Sleeveless tech T-shirt,
$12.99 by C9 Champion

Ultimate Breathability

“My gym is always hot and I like going for an afternoon run on the weekends. This camo shirt has integrated ventilation mesh that is engineered to keep you cool while wicking away the sweat.”

Metal vent breathe short sleeve shirt,
$78 by Lululemon


The Aesthete's Choice

“I want a shirt I can wear to the gym that doesn't really look like a gym shirt. This one is made from merino, actually, and has a nice weight to it. It's not too long and offers great range of motion.”

Convoy tee,
$78 by Olivers

Old School Update

“I just liked the throwback style. But it turns out, the stretchy micro-mesh fabric feels great and the fit is relaxed but not loose. And the bold yellow stripe comes in handy on morning runs.”

Smash tee,
$54 by Fourlaps

Your AirPods' rugged,
sporty cousin

These sweat-proof, quick-charge earphones get an hour's worth of playtime from just five minutes of charging, plus you can track their location so you never lose them. You can create and save custom EQ settings, access your Spotify account, or listen to community recommended playlists via Jaybird's app.
