Monday Obsession: Fairwear’s Clean-Cut Moisture-Wicking Men’s Shirts

At last, the solution to sweating up your shirt pre-work.


Guys, if you’ve ever had to endure a rigorous commute, be it by foot or wheel, then you know what it’s like to be sweating in a freshly laundered shirt before you’ve even had your morning coffee. That’s where Fairwear comes in.

The shirts are made in Philadelphia of a moisture-wicking performance fabric (kind of like discreet activewear) called COOLMAX and cut with a tapered fit. Even better: The collection is priced at $85, so you get form and function without breaking the bank. Stock up on a few of the blue and white varieties — you can get ’em online or at Brewerytown Bicycles — and never worry about looking like you decided to run a 5k on your way to work again.

    There is a huge untapped market for breathable, bike-able workwear. BUT… what about us ladies? I can only own so many seersucker shirts and athletic polos.

  • Hey BikeGurl,

    We totally feel your pain! Its super important that everyone gets the gear they need to make commuting comfortable. Like you said, “bike-able” apparel is a relatively untapped market. As we continue to expand our lines, making clothing that’s adaptable to everyone is certainly one of our most important goals!

    Hope you will continue to follow our progress!!
