Allbirds just knows what guys want. The brand continues to roll out new sleek, minimalist sneakers that provide comfort and support for every aspect of your day, even for HIIT workouts. Looking for quality underwear that you’ll actually enjoy wearing all day? They have those, too. And now, to complete its dominance of your everyday wardrobe, Allbirds just rolled out a sustainable clothing line of tees, sweaters, and even a puffer jacket to have you covered (and very cozy) when temperatures drop this winter. And yes, it’s just as good as you’d expect it to be.
Over the past years, I've seen how Allbirds has been able to distinguish itself from most other clothing brands in the market today—and any guy who’s worn a pair of Wool Runners or Tree Dashers understands why they've become so popular. While competitors hop on the hamster wheel of limited-edition, trend-driven, overly-hyped-up releases for the compulsive shopper to forget about in a month’s time, Allbirds’ offerings are classic, ageless, and thoughtful for both the consumer and the environment. Allbirds Apparel makes this crystal clear with fabric innovations that utilize natural materials to deliver next-level comfort.
With the release of Allbirds Apparel, the brand introduces us to their new TrinoXO fabric, a naturally-derived fiber made from snow crab shells that the brand claims is “the number two discarded resource on earth”. If you’re wondering why crab shells would make for a good clothing fabric, you’re not alone. Turns out, these shells have antimicrobial properties to keep your clothes fresh after long hours of wear, without the need for extractive materials like zinc or silver.
Whether sustainability is a key factor for your clothing purchases or not, the TrinoXO tee has a great midweight feel and a classic fit that appeals to most men, available in classic gray, black, and white, as well as some bolder hues. And if you are in the process of overhauling your wardrobe with sustainable stunners, you’ll be happy to know that Allbirds Apparel includes garment labels to show the carbon footprint of each piece.
Out of all the pieces I tested in the Allbirds Apparel line, my favorite piece would have to be the crazy-comfy wool jumper. The rich texture, super soft feel, and flattering silhouette give this merino wool sweater an elevated look. As a style editor, it’s one of my biggest peeves when a sweater loses its shape from hours of movement, making the garment look too sloppy by the end of the day when you’re heading out for an evening with friends—but that’s not the case with this one. By using a thicker gauge yarn with a good amount of weight to it, the sweater keeps its shape, no matter how many times you sit and stand throughout the day. It’s polished enough for Zoom calls, comfortable enough to replace your go-to sweatshirt, and has a high-quality construction that merits it’s price tag.
With the cold weather season quickly approaching, think about what you really want in your winter wardrobe and what qualities matter most, then head over to Allbirds to check out their apparel collection. Chances are, you’ll find most—if not all of it—right there.
