Gym Class Hero

Todd Snyder + Champion's City Gym has your sportswear needs covered


We don't want to admit it, but sometimes we need sweatpants.
The problem: Your average sweatpants make most men look like they're wearing diapers.
The solution: Todd Snyder City Gym.
You already know Todd Snyder as your go-to brand for smart-casual menswear. Dude made his bones at J.Crew before launching his own line two years back, and has since become a master of making a suit jacket look almost accidental, instead of stuffy or meticulously polished. 
He's brought that rugged and refined look to a new collaboration with Champion Sportswear, giving even the humble sweatpant a modern fit. The sweatshirts and tees have that soft heritage feel, while the knits do double duty as gym-wear and weekend layer.
The City Gym is the capsule collection's new impermanent home, a pop-up set to stick around until March. It's a calculatedly rough-looking space that combines the feel of a mid-century locker room and a old-school boxing club. 
In addition to the new line, you can pick up a Shinola bike, a Billykirk bag, or a luxe football by Leather Head.
But you came here for the sweatpants. Don't worry, you're not alone.
