Style Guide to Men’s Tracksuits

Although you can never have too many, choosing the right men’s tracksuit can be a game-changer when it comes to comfort and style. Tracksuits are versatile, comfortable and easy to wear. This makes them ideal for lounging around the house, heading out with friends, the shops, going to the gym, throwing some hoops, kicking a soccer ball around or simply getting some downtime. It must be noted that not all men’s tracksuits are created equal, let’s break it down below. 

How to Choose the Best Men’s Tracksuit

There are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind when shopping men’s tracksuits:


The fit of your tracksuit comes down to whether you’re looking for something loose, something fitted or something in between. This is especially important for trackpants. For a looser fit, look for regular fit pants that either have no cuff or thinner cuffs. Straight-cut pants like the Nike Dri-Fit Academy football pants give you something in between - with a more classic fit. If you prefer a slimmer fit, the cuffed trackpant styles like joggers or longer cuff pants are the way to go. These are more fitted around the legs, adding more definition to the shape of your legs - check out the ellesse slim leg pants. For the top, if comfort and layering is your goal, look for loose fit, longer length hoodies. If it’s more sleek and styled, consider a slim fit zipped jacket like the Puma Porsche Legacy T7 Motorsport track jacket or something in-between like a regular fit top like The North Face 1/2 zip sweater


Style is equally as important and to look the part you need to wear what is in fashion. Side Step offers a wide selection of tracksuits, trackpants, hoodies, sweatshirts, and jackets from major leisure brands. We’ve got a variety of styles, prints and colours to suit everyone. From graphic and logo designs all the way to monochrome styles in simple black, grey or navy, colour-blocked styles, bold colours, muted colours, and plenty more. All tastes, shapes and forms are catered for.


The type of fabric used for your tracksuit matters for several reasons. The first being comfort. Cotton is a good choice for athleisure clothing as it’s breathable and can be worn both inside and outside without breaking much of a sweat. Being breathable makes for a super comfortable tracksuit. Now if you’re heading into the great outdoors, you’ll want a water-resistant jacket. The North Face brand is known for their active jackets that help to insulate you even in the most soaking wet of conditions. The fabric blends that wick moisture by being loosely twisted to allow for airflow are essential for the hoodies and pants you wear to gym.
