dads don’t stink

If your dad works out and sweats, and you have yet to introduce him to our amazing Silverescent™ and moisture wicking fabrics, he’s in for a real sweet smelling treat this Father’s Day.
Triangle pose, dad's yoga

Almost two years ago, I introduced my dad, Terry, to yoga. My dad's a cotton t-shirt and cargo shorts kind of man, with shin high socks tucked into construction boots. He naturally gravitated to baggy cotton tees when he began practicing yoga. Although a man rather set in his ways, he listened when I told him the right clothing can change his practice. I introduced him to moisture wicking tops and shorts, and Silverescent™ fibres, today he wouldn’t be caught dead without it. Since starting hot yoga and cycling, here are a few reasons why despite a lot of sweat, my dad doesn't stink.

the magic of silverescent™


In all of our technical men's fabrics you will find moisture wicking properties, great stretch, mobility and comfort that men literally fall for. In some of our pieces, you will find the magic that is Silverescent™. This fabric uses X-Static® silver yarn which makes our tech tops anti-bacterial, or as we like to say, anti-stink! Synthetics tend to hold onto odour-causing bacteria even after washing. The silver in some of our tops virtually eliminates bacteria so it remains stink-free after you wash it. It's also moisture wicking and pre-shrunk.

My dad's favourite stink fighting hot yoga outfit: Flash Tech SS & Run:Response Shorts


Flash Tech SS in Coal/Tequila Sunrise: My dad loves this top because it feels like he's not wearing any layers, which is key to not over heating in hot yoga. It also wicks his sweat extremely quickly. It is also very comfortable, and thanks to Silverescent™ fibres woven throughout, he doesn't stink and can take me to dinner after our Monday night hot yoga class.

Run:Response Shorts

Run:Response Shorts in Tequila Sunrise/Vancouver: My dad loves these shorts because they are super comfortable, "stretchy", and long enough to make him feel comfortable in yoga. They wick moisture really quickly, and dry fast, so he loves them for hot yoga and his cycling adventures.

My dad may be hot, but he doesn’t stink. Love you Dad, proud of you and your journey with yoga! Namaste.

I use Lululemon for my work uniform and really appreciate the quality you put into each item. Keep up the good work.

Being a guy, the clothing lululemon has for us, is great. I own quite a few items, that I wear often.
My one complaint would be that the guys selection of clothing/styles/colors be as varied and as in quantity, as the ladies stuff. No hot pink please, or any other “hot” colors. I would just like to see more new things.
Many Thanks

My wife turned me on to lululemon around 3 years ago. I love the run response shorts and the vent tech tshirts. Problem is the underwear is pretty flimsy and tense to rip after a few months which defeats the shorts. Other than that I love not stinking.
