The Ins & Outs of Elegant Sportswear.

The Ins & Outs of Elegant Sportswear.


Sportswear doesn't have to be tacky. If you need a more sophisticated look at brunch, on the golf course, at the country club swimming pool or just want a casual outfit you can count on, fear not. Ike Behar has options that will have you looking and feeling fantastic.

Modern sportswear

In broad terms sportswear is clothing suitable for recreation. Over the years, this clothing category has included a variety of apparel. Anything from polo shirts to sports coats can count as sportswear, so it's a fairly broad category. If you're getting your sportswear from Ike Behar, you'll get a relaxed yet refined look that's suitable for many different occasions. You never have to look sloppy again, no matter the situation.


This is why we focus on creating sportswear that offers the best of performance and style. For example, our polo shirts are made of pima cottons and cotton blends, which provide moisture-wicking abilities along with the benefits of traditional cotton fabric. They are the perfect choice for a day on the golf course or tennis court with friends or colleagues.

If you want to add a bit more elegance to your appearance while still being comfortable and casual, try one of our amazing sport coats. These Italian-made offerings are available in a cashmere-silk blend that is an absolute dream to wear and pair beautifully with linen sport shirts.

Sportswear tips

Themed sportswear (swimwear, sport-specific apparel, etc.) is pretty straightforward and should be worn when the occasion arises. However, there are some times when a broader category of sportswear is appropriate. Here are some tips for when you want to keep it casual while still looking smart, powerful and tasteful.                                            

- Use sport coats with casual pants. This pairing works well in relaxed settings with new acquaintances and old friends alike. Our luxurious sport coats add class to the laid-back look.

- Leave the collar unbuttoned on dress shirts. In the past an open collar on a dress shirt was a fashion faux pas. This is not the case any longer; the open collar is a trend in the business-casual world. Our dress shirts make a statement and ensure you're looking your best.

- Add a necktie to your outfit. Neckties are no longer confined to formal events. Combine one of our stylish ties with an eye-catching sport shirt to get a nonchalant, confident look that is sure to impress.

What we wear and how we present ourselves matters. If you are lackadaisical in your approach to clothing, it can affect the way you are perceived by those around you. This is why Ike Behar prides itself on our line of sportswear. You can present your best self to the world, even when the setting is informal.

Ike Behar has set fashion standards for men since the 1950s. Our commitment to quality, craftsmanship and timeless style means you'll always look and feel your best. Whether you need formalwear, a casual outfit or the perfect accessory to tie your aesthetic together, Ike Behar has what you need.
