Stylish Merino Workout T-Shirts SS 2015
I’m writing this in a busy eatery, at lunchtime, in London on a gloriously sunny day. I’m surrounded by chatter, the clinking of chilled glasses and general joy at what is the first hint of summer. It is, apparently, the hottest day of the year so far and I can feel the sweaty, clammy closeness of summer in the city taking the edge off the alfresco glamour and excitement of this wonderful time of year. I wish I’d thrown on a merino t-shirt this morning, it would have been the smart choice for spring when outfit choices invariably leave you too hot or too cold.

Regular readers will know that I’m a little obsessed with merino, the natural properties of this special super wool make it a perfect for spring/summer. It’s highly breathable, sweat-wicking, odour resistant, quick drying and temperature regulating making it the ideal fabric for workout t-shirts across all types of training. Merino also has a natural elasticity which facilitates complete freedom of movement and it retains its shape wash after wash. The super fine yarns are soft, remain crease free and create t-shirts that drape really well. So merino is not only highly functional but creates great looking t-shirts too which means a good merino tee is a fantastic multifunctional wardrobe staple. Wear it to the gym, out running or cycling or throw it on with a pair of jeans for a smart-casual but very stylish look.

We’ve compiled a selection of our favourite merino t-shirts. They are all extremely well tailored for style and designed to be completely fit for purpose. If you haven’t already ditched your freebie gym tees, it’s time you replaced them with at least one of these stylish investment pieces. Plus these lightweight garments can double up as base layers for winter too.  3 in1 t-shirts for training, base layers and everyday wear. Be a wolf in sheep’s clothing and take your pick.
