The 35 Most Stylish, Comfortable & All Around Best Joggers for Men

This post may contain affiliate links. (What's this?)

There are few pieces of modern menswear more versatile than a good pair of joggers.

And with the world of men’s athleisure exploding over the last few years, today there are dozens – if not hundreds – of stylish and performance-focused mens joggers to choose from.

That’s the good news. The bad news? Combing through all those options to compare and contrast the myriad mens sweatpants on the market can be incredibly (and annoyingly) time-consuming.

Fortunately, there’s more good news: as a self-respecting style blogger, sifting through styles is kind of my whole thing. (Sorry, I should clarify: this is good news for you, not so much for my social life.)

So, after spending more time than I care to admit scouring the internet, in this post I’ll round up some of the most stylish, modern, comfortable and all around best joggers for men who want sweats that combine style and comfort in equal measure.

The (Absolute) Best Joggers for Men

Breaking Down the Best Men’s Sweatpants on the Market

Overall Best Mens Joggers ↓

Public Rec All Day Everyday Jogger

Public Rec All Day Everyday Jogger

Public Rec’s All Day Everyday (ADED) Jogger is a perfect example of a pant that works just as well in athletic situations as it does in social ones.

The elastic waistband and internal drawstring offer lots of comfort, while the faux fly gives them a more formal feel and modern look.

You would look fine rocking these at the gym, but you could also easily pair them with a button-down shirt or a denim jacket and wear them damn near anywhere.

Adidas Y-3 CL Track Pants

Adidas Y-3 CL Track Pants

Athletic stalwart Adidas teamed with Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto to elevate and add a subtle touch of sophistication to the brand’s classic sweatpant.

Available in four pants colors (including a particularly handsome looking navy blue), the Y-3 CL’s are made from 100% nylon jacquard, have ribbed cuffs at the ankles and sport the Y-3 logo on the leg.

Vuori Balboa Pant

Vuori Balboa Pant

The perfect pants for any guy who wants to defeat Ivan Drago and avenge their fallen friend, or re-avenge him 30 years later by training his son to defeat Drago’s son in the reboot.

The Balboa jogger has a relaxed fit that evokes the working class boxing gyms of the 1970s, which is ironic, because it also happens to be perfect for distinctly 21st century activities like yoga, spin class, or Netflix-and-chilling.

Public Rec Stadium Jogger

Public Rec Stadium Jogger

Public Rec’s joggers are as well named as they are well made.

The ADED jogger has a more casual vibe that makes it more appropriate for casual, everyday situations.

But the Stadium jogger has a more athletic vibe that makes you look like a stylish-ass sportsman.

It also features twice as much spandex as the ADED (24% in the Stadium vs 12% in the ADED), making it one of the best pairs of performance joggers.

Lululemon ABC Jogger

Lululemon ABC Jogger

Lululemon’s ABC jogger is as practical as it is hilarious:

In this case, “ABC” stands for “Anti-Ball-Crushing” (yes, really) because they’re designed to “give you and the family jewels room to breathe.”

Though it’s still thought of by many as a women’s yoga brand, as an industry leader in the athleisure look, it’s no surprise that Lululemon also happens to make some of the best jogger pants for men.

Outdoor Voices All Day Sweatpant

Outdoor Voices All Day Sweatpant

Another men’s jogger designed to bridge the gap between the gym, the sofa, and the rest of everyday life.

Outdoor Voices bills their All Day sweatpant as “the softest sweats you’ll ever wear,” and with good reason.

Made from the company’s CloudKnit fabric – a great material that’s a blend of 94% polyester and 6% spandex – these sweatpants have a relaxed tapered fit and are designed to be as lightweight, breathable and stretchy as possible.

Check Price ➤


Rhone Commuter Jogger

Rhone Commuter Jogger

Rhone is another company that’s in the same vein as Public Rec.

They offer casual staples in performance-focused technical fabrics that both look great and work well.

And the Commuter Jogger epitomizes that philosophy.

They have an elasticized waist and a proper button and fly, but are made from the company’s Flex-Knit™ fabric, offering the four-way stretch that you’d expect from joggers.

Vuori Ripstop Traveler Jogger

Vuori Ripstop Traveler Jogger

The second pair of sweats from Vuori on this list, the Ripstop travelers move away from the distinctly athletic feel of the above Balboas.

Intead, these offer a more versatile pant that you can wear damn near anywhere.

Designed with walking and hiking in mind, the Ripstops have a wider leg and an “articulated knee” (meaning bending won’t be a problem), and come with a teflon coating to protect them from the elements.

Check Price ➤


Lululemon Surge Jogger

Lululemon Surge Jogger

Another solid option from Lululemon.

The Surge men’s joggers put a heavier emphasis on performance than the ABC sweats above, and are specifically designed with running in mind.

They have a slim tapered fit that gets snug around the calves and ankles (good for cutting down on wind resistance), are made from sweat-wicking fabrics and have added lycra for some additional stretch and shape retention.

Falconeri Cashmere Joggers

Falconeri Cashmere Joggers

If you’re less concerned with performance and more concerned with finding the most luxurious men’s sweatpants on the market, you can stop searching.

Falconeri refers to their joggers as “cashmere trousers,” which tells you damn near everything you need to know about their approach to joggers.

The design may be inspired by the classic track suit, but make no mistake: these pants are for luxuriating.

Check Price ➤


Southpole Basic Jogger

Southpole Basic Jogger

From one end of the cost spectrum to the other, Southpole’s Basic Joggers aren’t nearly as fancy as Falconeri’s “cashmere trousers.”

But even they come at a low price point, they’re the kind of timeless, no-frills staple piece that every man needs in his wardrobe.

Similar to the classic shape and style of the Falconeri sweatpants above, these 100% polyester joggers take you from the couch to the gym to the coffee shop in style and comfort.

Check Price ➤


Alternative Apparel Classic Men’s Sweatpant

Alternative Apparel Classic Men's Sweatpant

Another entry in the “cheap and cheerful” category, similar to the Southpole Basic Joggers above.

These classic joggers from Alternative Apparel have a retro vibe and are made from the brand’s “Eco fleece” fabric, a blend of 50% polyester, 46% cotton and 4% rayon.

AA was acquired by Hanes back in 2017, but fortunately has retained the brand’s focus on affordable staples in timeless, classic styles, so these are still available at a great price.

Richer Poorer Men’s Fleece Sweatpants

Richer Poorer Men's Fleece Sweatpants

Richer Poorer specializes in comfortable pants and basics like tees, sweats and underwear, and their fleece sweatpants are as classic as they are unimpeachable.

They come in a midweight fleece that’s silicone-softened, providing a comfy broken-in feel right from the jump.

Plus they feature a ribbed waistband, and have elasticized cuffs at the bottom, which helps them hug your calves snugly and fit properly in length.

Check Price ➤


H&M Regular Fit Sweatpants

H&M Regular Fit Sweatpants

Long known as a go-to online store for affordable men’s fashion, H&M’s sweatpants are as cheap, classic and stylish as you’d expect.

Made from a fairly standard blend of 60% cotton/40% polyester, you should probably be extra careful about throwing them in the dryer.

While the website says they fit “true to size,” I’ve had H&M stuff shrink on me in the past after putting it through a laundry cycle.

Uniqlo Ultra Stretch Active Joggers

Uniqlo Ultra Stretch Active Joggers

Uniqlo has been blurring the line between “stylish activewear” and “performance casual staples” for years.

So it’s no surprise that their sweatpants are among the best male joggers on the market.

Made with the company’s “Ultra Stretch” fabric and available in five neutral colors, they feature a zipper on the back pocket in addition to the standard side pockets, so you can keep your cards safe when you’re on the go.

Alo Yoga Triumph Sweatpant

Alo Yoga Triumph Sweatpant

You don’t have to be a yogi to enjoy these tri-blend fleece joggers.

But you do need to be in the market for slim sweatpants that will hug your quads and calves pretty snugly.

While they look great, the Triumphs are made with performance in mind:

The reinforced crotch keeps you comfortable while stretching, and the zipper pockets help you keep your cards, keys and everyday carry together.

Check Price ➤


Brooklinen Bergen Jogger

Brooklinen Bergen Jogger

Anyone who listens to podcasts (which is to say, pretty much all of us at this point) will probably be familiar with Brooklinen.

But not as many people know that they make a line of lounge pants in addition to the preferred sheets of Dax Sheppard and the Pod Save America bros.

Available in black and grey, their joggers feature a mix of cotton, modal and spandex, making them both ultra soft and sufficiently stretchy.

Check Price ➤


Under Armour Sportstyle Joggers

Under Armour Sportstyle Joggers

Best known for a performance-first approach to sportswear, Under Armour’s lone entry on the list of the best men’s joggers is surprisingly fashion forward.

Available in six colors, these 100% polyester sweats come in a fuller cut that doesn’t hug your leg as closely as some of the slimmer models on this list.

They also sport a faux fly that makes them look a little less like sportswear and more like… well, clothes.

Check Price ➤


PAIGE Elmwood Jogger

PAIGE Elmwood Jogger

Quite possibly the single most stylish pair of joggers on this list:

PAIGE’s Elmwood jogger looks more like a pair of pants that you would wear to work or a casual outing than a pair you would wear to workout.

Designed to be “comfortable enough for weekend lounging… but refined enough to wear out to dinner with your favorite button down,” the Elmwoods strike a damn-near perfect balance between sporty and stylish.

Hill City Fleece Jogger 2.0

Hill City Fleece Jogger 2.0

Hill City’s fleece joggers are an old school sweat pant with a decidedly laid back vibe, which makes these pants seem like the perfect pair to wear while chilling out max and relaxing all cool, or shootin’ some b-ball outside of the school.

(Though I’d be remiss if I failed to warn you to keep an eye out for a couple of guys who are up to no good, as they may or may not be making trouble in your neighborhood.)

Check Price ➤


Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Joggers

Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Joggers

If the Hill City sweat pants above have a distinctly old school vibe, Nike’s Tech Fleece joggers look more like the sweat pants of the future.

(Or at the very least, the sweatpants from Back to the Future).

Available in six colors and warm enough to wear when the weather cool downs, the Tech Fleece joggers cut a pretty flattering profile, fitting slim around the hip, relaxed down through the thigh and knee, and tapering off at the bottom.

Check Price ➤


J.Crew Factory Slim Fit Performance Sweat Pant 

J.Crew Factory Slim Fit Performance Sweat Pant

J.Crew Factory is one of my favorite J.Crew alternatives (for obvious reasons), and it’s an especially good place to buy casual style staples like joggers and sweats.

Their slim-fit performance sweatpant is sleek, slim fitting and comfortable (it’s made from a blend of cotton and polyester), but not so high maintenance that you have to worry about shrinking it in the wash or getting them too dirty if you’re out and about.

Check Price ➤


Alternative Apparel French Terry Joggers

Alternative Apparel French Terry Joggers

Another entry from Alternative Apparel, these French terry joggers one of the few pairs of patterned sweatpants on the list, and have a classic camo design that stands out without being too over-the-top or flashy.

While they may look like they’re ready for battle, the French terry cloth makes them super soft and extra comfortable, while the faux fly helps them look as good on the street as they do in the gym.

John Elliott Sochi Sweatpants

John Elliott Sochi Sweatpants

Somewhat paradoxically, designer John Elliott draws inspiration from an old saying of his dad’s:

“The most interesting people live outside their comfort zones.”

Which is ironic, because Elliott specializes in designing clothes that are both interesting and comfortable.

His Sochi sweat pants are the only ones on this list to have an adjustable cinch closing at the ankles, allowing you to adjust them for the perfect fit.

Land’s End Men’s Jersey Knit Pants

Land's End Men's Jersey Knit Pants

These sweatpants from Land’s End are made from a jersey knit, a mixture of wool, cotton, and synthetic fibers that combines the classic comfort of wool with the movement and flexibility of modern synthetics.

I particularly like the thin elastic waist on these (as opposed to some of the bulkier elastic bands), which gives them a sleeker feel, and the ankle that tapers but doesn’t hug too tightly at the bottom.

Check Price ➤


L.L. Bean Men’s Athletic Sweats

L.L. Bean Men's Athletic Sweats

L.L. Bean’s athletic men’s sweats are about as cozy, comfortable and classic as they come.

While they’re designed to fit true and resist shrinking in the wash, don’t let the word “athletic” in the name fool you.

These are made from a mix of 91% cotton and 9% polyester and come in a comfortable fit that’s probably more appropriate for a lazy day on the couch than an active day in the gym.

Check Price ➤


Champion Slim-Fit Jersey Sweatpants

Champion Slim-Fit Jersey Sweatpants

Though it’s no longer thought of as a cutting-edge sports brand, Champion has developed a coveted reputation among stylish men as one of the most classic (and classically handsome) men’s sportswear brands of all time.

These slim-fitting sweatpants are made from a cotton-blend jersey fabric that’s also backed with fleece, meaning they offer comfort, softness and style in equal measure.

Check Price ➤


Russell Athletic 2.0 Premium Fleece sweatpants

Russell Athletic 2.0 Premium Fleece sweatpants

And speaking of iconic (if admittedly old school) men’s sportswear brands, Russell Athletic hasn’t gotten quite as much pick-up from fashion enthusiasts, but they’ve been a reliable go-to for athletic wear and sports-focused staples for decades.

Their sweatpants are as classic and unimpeachable as you’d expect, featuring an internal drawstring waist and a non-restrictive ankle that stays open at the bottom.

Check Price ➤


Gap Vintage Soft Joggers

Gap Vintage Soft Joggers

Leave it to the Gap – which basically made its name by perfecting the chino, another staple of men’s casual pants – to quietly and sneakily offer one of the best damn pairs of men’s joggers on the market.

Their Vintage Soft Joggers are available in seven colors, made of a blend of cotton, polyester and recycled polyester, and sit slim through the legs, tapering down to thick elastic cuffs at the bottom.

Check Price ➤


Rhone Bolinas Beach Jogger

Rhone Bolinas Beach Jogger

Another pair from upstart activewear company Rhone, these cotton joggers are more classic in both design and material than the Commuter Joggers that appear higher on this list.

Made from soft cotton (with a little elastane added in for some extra stretch), they have a loose fit that’s less for the guy on the go and more for the guy who wants to look and feel stylish as he cozies up for a night spent in.

Check Price ➤


Todd Snyder + Champion Lightweight Slim Jogger

Todd Snyder + Champion Lightweight Slim Jogger

Major menswear designers like Thom Browne have dipped their toes into the athleisure movement lately, so it should come as no surprise to see Todd Snyder on this list.

When he teamed with Champion a few years back, he simultaneously updated some of their classic offerings, and reinvigorated a sportswear brand that the world of men’s athletic wear had kind of forgotten.

The result? Clothes that have a modern take and Snyder’s stylish sensibility, with Champion’s pedigree and experience.

(No wonder GQ gave these slim fit sweat pants their endorsement.)

Check Price ➤


Ten Thousand Interval Pant

Ten Thousand Interval Pant

The Interval Pant from men’s performance-wear brand Ten Thousand is one of their best-selling pieces, and it doesn’t take much to figure out why.

Made from a stretchy and sweat-wicking combo of 60% nylon and 40% spandex, the pants come in a tailored fit that cuts a slim profile.

But they also offer a ton of flexibility and movement, making them great for everything from lifting weights at the gym to hitting the trail for a hike or a jog.

Check Price ➤


Vans Solid Authentic Joggers

Vans Solid Authentic Joggers

With a zip-up fly and button closure at the top, coupled with belt loops, Vans’ Solid Authentic Joggers are among the most pants-like pair of joggers on this list.

That makes them a great option for anyone who’s looking to make his casual wardrobe look a little more athletic, but admittedly not the best bet for guys who are looking for their next pair of gym pants.

Check Price ➤


Mack Weldon Ace Sweatpants

Mack Weldon Ace Sweatpants

Mack Weldon’s mission is to reinvent men’s basics.

For their Ace sweatpants the brand opted for a design similar to the college sweats so many of us used to bum around campus in, but gave them a significant upgrade by opting for a good fit and a micro-sanded french terry cotton.

They come in seven colors, including a particularly good looking charcoal heather, featured here.
