Tani’s Active Luxury, Your Gym Bag’s MVP

Fashion meets function in Tani’s fitness and performance collections—and the two get along surprisingly well. Normally underwear is designed to focus on just one of the two. Tani has always been touted as a brand of luxury. Their activewear designs bridge the gap between fashion and function. But where do those luxurious athletic looks hit their stride?

The Tani Air Fitness Collection is made with a pique knit from 95% micro tencel and 5% lycra. The advanced knit creates small pockets of air that regulate your body temperature. And because the material is naturally quick to dry, it also keeps you cool. The fabric also wicks away up to 50% more moisture than cotton. The Air Fitness Collection includes a brief and boxer as well as a muscle shirt, crew neck tee, and v-neck tee. Each is made from the same material, and sure to keep up during your workout.

Moisture wicking capabilities are one of the most crucial functions a pair of performance underwear can have. The reverse is a wet pair of underwear that is unnecessarily heavy, uncomfortable, and gross. While the fabric function’s as a moisture wicking layer, that’s not where we find the collection’s luxurious bits. What’s luxurious about the Air Fitness Collection is the fabric’s touch. It’s smooth and soft, and designed with sensitive skin in mind.

The Fresh Cooling Performance Collection is made for more extreme workouts. Including a boxer brief and button boxer, these looks are made from 68% Japanese polyester, 26% superfine cupro, and 6% spandex. As the name suggests, the material is designed to keep you cool during heated gym sessions. The Japanese polyester is also supremely soft, like the micro tencel, and also wicks moisture and circulates air.

Of all Tani’s active looks, the Fresh Cooling Performance Button Boxer is probably what bridges the fashion/function gap the most. All thanks to that little button on the fly. It’s an accent you’re unlikely to find on other active pairs.
