With Father’s Day just around the corner, you may be looking for some fresh gift ideas for the important men in your life. Well, I have an idea for you!
I gifted Paul a few pieces of Vuori activewear for Christmas — yes, the maker of my favorite joggers. He loves them, so I got him to join me in a photo shoot to show you a few pieces from their men’s summer lineup.
Alison couldn’t resist taking a few shots when I was fixing his buttons… That was not a posed shot, I swear!
Paul loves to be active, but he’s not big into exercise for the sake of exercise. He’d much rather hike a trail or walk with friends in the neighborhood, and he’s always up for a water activity.
Having comfortable activewear that can cross over into casual work wear is key to removing excuses. It’s a worthwhile investment in good health and happiness.
That way, he can take a break in the middle of the day to join me on a walk and get right back to work, or meet a friend at the trail after church without having to bring a change of clothes or going home first to change.
Vuori’s Aim Pants and Strato Tech Polo are the perfect pieces to serve as both activewear and work wear. The pants are made of a super lightweight poly/cotton blend with 4-way stretch, and they have a tailored look that makes them super versatile.
And the Vuori Strato Tech Polo is one of those shirts every guy should have in multiples. It is ridiculously soft and also quick drying and moisture-wicking, plus it has a UPF 30+ for long days in the sun.
The polo style makes it great for the office or a golf outing, or for any other activity where he might want to look a little more leveled up but have the comfort of performance fabric.
Paul is wearing the Navy Heather in a size large. He tends to like a looser fit in his shirts, but he could have easily sized down for a fit more like the model on the website.
For his more active pursuits, the Vuori Strato Tech Tee and Ponto Shorts are the perfect warm weather performance basics. The Strato Tech Tee is the same ultra-soft, moisture-wicking, UPF 30+ performance knit fabric as the polo.
It comes in eight colors (this is the Oxblood Heather), and it runs pretty true to size. Again, Paul took his usual size large, although the medium would have a more streamlined fit.
And the Ponto Shorts are lightweight, soft, and stretchy; and they have a brushed elastic waistband for added comfort.
I got to pick out a couple new Vuori pieces as well! I chose a matching set that is perfect for lounging or walking the neighborhood on mild summer evenings. Both pieces are made of a soft organic cotton french terry, and they run true to size.
The Sunnyside Crew is a vintage-inspired raglan pullover with an oversized, relaxed fit. As cute as it is with these shorts, it will also be great for throwing on with jean shorts at the beach, or wearing with my Vuori joggers on those cool evenings in Maine later this summer.
The Sunnyside Shorts have a 3″ inseam and a drawstring waist, and they’ve quickly become the shorts I throw on after dinner, when I want to be comfortable but it’s too early to put on my pajamas.
Whether you’re looking for practical Father’s Day gift ideas or an update to your own performance gear, Vuori has something for everyone.
In fact, I just ordered a few pieces for my dad for Father’s Day. He’s visiting this weekend, and I hope to have them here in time to give them to him in person. Let’s hope he’s not reading this post!
With Vuori, shipping is free on orders over $75, and returns are always free. Best of all, they stand behind their products 100%. If for any reason you aren’t completely satisfied with your purchase, just send it back. You can’t beat that!
