Comfort plays a part in all of our wardrobes these days. And, as we’re spending more time at home than ever, it’s perhaps the key consideration when getting dressed in the morning.
But there’s always a trade-off. Comfortable clothes have lazy connotations - you wear them in bed or on the sofa and they rarely see the light of day outside, mostly because they don’t look that good. That notion’s a thing of the past now though, as contemporary label WAHTS has produced a collection of comfortable clothing that looks as good as it feels.
From the ultimate pique cotton sweatshirt to a well-fitting pair of jersey shorts, WAHTS uses sustainable fabrics from suppliers that are Oeko-Tex certified, so your new work from home wardrobe is responsibly made too. These are the pieces high on our wish-list.
A lightweight crewneck sweatshirt is perhaps the ultimate stay-at-home piece. Crafted in Portugal from an army green pique cotton, the Rowe sweater boasts raglan sleeves and an updated tailored fit. Take your luxury sportswear game to the next level and try wearing it with a pair of equally comfortable sneakers and navy sweatpants.
Half jacket/half hoodie, WAHTS' Shelton jacket is the ideal second layer for both around the house and on your daily walk. Made from a technical bonded jersey with a spongy handle, it’ll keep its shape unlike more traditional cotton which will stretch with wear. Its two-way zip and taped seams allude to the quality craftsmanship that’s taking place here, too.
The perfect T-shirt is an elusive thing, but WAHTS’ take is about as close as you’ll get. With a slim fit and optimal length finishing just below the belt line, the Dean T-shirt can be worn with virtually anything. Working as the ideal base layer, you can wear it on its own or under one of WAHTS' equally comfortable sweatshirts.
For times when you need to smarten things up just a little, this long sleeve polo shirt will do the trick nicely. Its buttonless collar gives off a mid-century riviera feel, while the breathable pique cotton it’s made from will ensure you stay comfortable all day.
Anyone that works from home a lot will attest to the merits of elasticated-waist shorts. WAHTS’ Bates jersey shorts may be the best around - made from soft-touch bonded jersey, their zip pockets ensure your belongings stay on you at all times, while the fake fly gives them a smarter edge you won’t find on similar designs.
