Forget mounting a fitness sensor on your wrist, chest, or anywhere else — with OMsignal Biometric Smartwear, the sensors you need are built right into your clothes. In addition to offering compression, moisture management, and a comfortable fit, these shirts feature threads that work in conjunction with an unobtrusive black box to record and stream data about your heart rate, calories burned, steps taken, breathing, and overall fitness directly to a companion app over Bluetooth. Available in long sleeve, short sleeve, and sleeveless varieties.
We used to make the majority of our own clothes here in the states. Now we make almost none. Victor Athletics is looking to change that, while helping out their neighbors at the same time. Based in Cincinnati, they're working with a small factory in Tennessee — one that used to employ 150 people, but is down to just 5 workers — to introduce a new line of everyday staples like pocket tees, hoodies, crewnecks, and sweatpants, available at reasonable prices. They're all made from organic cotton, to reduce environmental impact, and 5% of all the proceeds will be given back to the factories so they can set about hiring some of those people back.
As temperatures slowly fall, Everlane reminds us it's time to think layers. With their new Chunky Knit Sweaters, the company crafted two handsome offerings — a classic crew and a modern shawl-collar cardigan — from an extra-fine, super-soft Merino wool that will have you wondering why you've been wearing itchy pull-overs your entire life. Take your pick from navy, grey, or black, and ward off winter's chill with an extra layer of comfort and style.
