The 5 Best Yoga Shorts for Men to Buy in 2018

Do your down dogs comfortably (and in style) with these men's shorts options

Unscientific evidence (meaning me scanning the room at yoga class) suggests that most men who do yoga prefer shorts to pants. Shorts allow for greater freedom of movement and are cooler. But shorts come in all shapes and sizes, from long and baggy to small and tight. There are advantages to each, depending on the type of yoga you are doing, but most choices are made on the basis of personal style. We've rounded up a range of cuts to suit a variety sartorial tastes and yoga habits.

Ohmme is a yoga menswear company from the London. Founder Louis d'Origny is a devoted Ashtangi with a mission to design products that work for athletic, sweaty practices.  The 2-Dogs short combines a tight base layer with a looser over short, minimizing the number of garments you need for a yoga session.
