What makes a great gym shirt? It seems to me that there are two sides of a spectrum (and no middle ground). Either I end up wearing a ragged old t-shirt that I’ve had for too long and probably got for free, or on the other hand, a hyper-athletic shirt that feels like it was designed more for the LeBron’s insane fitness regimen it was for me, a writer who enjoys cycling and running occasionally. Whichever option I choose, it ends up sounding a bit silly, at least to me. The shirts I used to wear are for training – that’s it. Well, that was before I gave this Western Rise tee a chance.
I had never heard of Western Rise before, but once I put on this tee I wanted to know all about them. The Session t-shirt is so light that I don’t even feel like I’m wearing a shirt while I have it. It’s soft and made from a 100% polyester double-knit fabric that looks like a waffle knit on even the most miniature scales. This prevents sweat from building up and also reduces odor, preventing the shirt from feeling stuck on you during a workout. The shirt also has shoulder seams to give it some shape, and some detailing around the bottom to make it cling to your body a bit better. Most importantly, it’s low-key – it doesn’t look like it’s designed for LeBron, but I’d be interested to hear what he says about it (my DMs are open, King James). It’s a shirt that I could wear with jeans and forget I just spent the last thirty minutes lifting kettlebells.
Regardless, the Session Tee has been my favorite for exercising, and best of all, I don’t feel like I need a change before I go shopping. This shirt is so awesome I never want to take it off.
