Whether motivation means returning to your regular workout regimen or consciously planning time off from a stressed-out job, having the proper wardrobe is an important step toward self-care. Mack Weldon combines advanced technology with modern design to create a core collection of menswear essentials that can elevate your closet with style and simplicity.

From not-so-basic T-shirts to swim trunks and lounge pants that effortlessly transition from sports activities and at-home relaxation to spontaneous meet-ups, these seven picks may be just what you need to take your daily routine to the next level.

Technology and Performance Converge

If you're committed to your workout, don't forget to consider how what you wear can impact your success. The proper garment not only makes you feel good, but Mack Weldon's Stealth Crew Neck T-Shirt design also harnesses the power of body mapping technology. The Q-NOVA nylon blend fabric is equipped with mesh zones for airflow and elastic zones for pressure, providing breathability and support for your daily run or workout.

The Great Reveal

The same technology and fabrication used in Mack Weldon's Stealth Crew Neck T-Shirt is now available as a breathable and form-fitting Stealth Boxer Brief. Keep those board shorts from chaffing or keep an extra pair in your gym bag. The hybrid, seamless construction looks great post-gym under Maverick Tech Chinos.

Get Cozy

So soft to the touch that you may burn extra calories fending off handsy admirers, the 95% cotton and 5% stretch offers just enough give for that extra movement on the court or couch. The Ace Sweatshort's micro-sanded French Terry is extra soft and the tailored fit delivers enough style for that impromptu coffee date or errand. Seven colors offer plenty of options, though our mouths are watering for black plum, a deep burgundy that elevates activewear.

Day to Night and Everything in Between

Look no further for a T-shirt that can do double duty. Made from 100% Pima cotton (the "cashmere of cotton"), the Pima Crew Neck T-Shirt holds its own as a standalone garment with a slim fit and recovery collar that maintains its structure. Or throw a few in different colors (you've got 13 to pick from) to layer under a blazer, button-down or windbreaker for your next weekend getaway.

Get Wet

Whether you prefer Swim Trunks or Board Shorts, Mack Weldon's quick-dry, four-way stretch fabric provides high performance for those pool volleyball games but looks just as good beachside. A zip side ensures you're ready to dash to the nearby food truck or concession stand, or go from pool to party. The Swim Trunk's 6-inch inseam reveals just enough thigh to show off results of those summer squats, while the Board Short's 8.75-inch inseam is ideal for surfing, paddle boarding and other sports.

Just Breathe

Whether it's the end of your workout or workday, the AIRKNITx Boxer Brief's breathable microfiber and four-way stretch can withstand whatever you have in mind. The technologically advanced material also features a moisture-wicking and odor-fighting finish — ideal for warm and humid summer months. The angled color block pattern (in charcoal or indigo heather) adds a further pop of design, or opt for eight other solid options.

How to Relax Any Day of the Week

Don't let the name fool you. Mack Weldon's Sunday Lounge Pant utilizes a unique material called peached cotton flannel. A carbon peaching process turns long-staple cotton into a can't-keep-your-hands-off fabric, so soft to the touch you'll likely end up with multiple colors. The back flex waist and interior drawstring make for an ideal travel pant when you're ready to hit the road or jet-set for a long-overdue vacation.
