What’s more important than going to the gym? Looking like you go to the gym, of course. Even if you don’t Boohoo Man’s debut activewear range is packed with enough gear, like these biker-style joggers, that no one will know. Just maybe size down on the muscle fit T-shirts.

Native Youth White Chesil Cut & Sew Tee

Vitae London Walmer Midnight Watch

Adam Scott X Uniqlo Kando Shorts
The late, great Arnold Palmer aside, golfers (and please don’t swing for us for saying this) aren’t exactly stylish. However, that hasn’t stopped former world number one Adam Scott from producing these above-par camouflage shorts as part of a collaboration with Uniqlo.
Available at Uniqlo, priced £24.90.

The Kooples Personalised Polo Shirt
There’s a theory that we men like to monogram things because we have a fear of our own mortality. We have a better theory: done right, it just looks damn cool. Case in point: The Kooples’ new polo shirt personalisation service, which offers a build-your-own experience online with a choice of different cuts, colours and trims.
Available at The Kooples, priced £105.
Whistles X Boardies Stripe Swim Shorts
With certain world leaders *cough, Trump* shooting down climate change agreements, it will surely pay to have a pair of swim shorts to hand when all the ice caps melt. Whistles’ collaboration with London-based specialists (in swimwear, not global warming) Boardies get our vote.
Available at Whistles, priced £45.
Mocha Salt Crew Neck T-Shirt
Since 2015, Sydney-based Mocha Salt has turned out David-Gandy-In-A-Fragrance-Ad cool swim shorts. For SS17 the brand has added high-quality menswear basics to its line-up, including T-shirts cut from 100 per cent Tencel, which is more absorbent than cotton and cooler than linen.
Available at Mocha Salt, priced £52.
Topman Navy Skinny Trousers
‘Peak skinnies’ is about as believable and ‘peak beard’, so before investing in a series of bell tents for your lower half, try on Topman’s equally comfortable drawstring waist kecks for size.
Available at Topman, priced £35.
Nike Cortez Jewel QS
There’s a scene in The Wolf of Wall Street when Leonardo DiCaprio’s character totals a Lamborghini while off his nut.

Available at End, priced £79.
