Sportswear has come a long way since the late 80’s when simple jumpsuits, headbands and athletic jerseys were just about the only option you had when you headed out for the morning run. Now, Tough Mudder Marathons, Cross-fit fanatics and all round fit-bit junkies have unknowingly pushed notable brands to their limits and past boundaries forcing them to integrate technical materials into their collections leading to today’s sportswear being more body-aware then ever before.
When innovator and trailblazer Perry Ellis began his legacy, one that is still as unwavering as it was during its inception in 1976, his philosophy of never settling for what was expected, is the hallmark to a label which continues to offer up refined menswear. That philosophy also carries over into the latest division of the respected brand with the launch of Perry Ellis 360 — a complete line of performance-inspired apparel.
