It’s no big secret that in terms of our wardrobes this year, we’ve all gotten pretty comfortable being … comfortable. At some point, however, the pendulum must swing back: we will eventually want to, you know, get dressed again.

But that doesn’t mean that we can’t stay comfy, provided we pick up some duds from State of Matter, a brand-new menswear company focused on providing stylish, office-appropriate attire enhanced by high-tech sustainable performance fabrics.

State of Matter prides themselves on what they colloquially refer to as “Holy S#!% Comfort,” a term adopted from the early reactions of several customers. Said reactions are resultant of fabrics like RENU polyester, LYCRA® EcoMade elastane and ECONYL® nylon, which are not only buttery soft and designed to move with you (whilst wicking moisture, it bears noting), but are also born of various recycling practices that massively reduce waste and carbon footprint. Good for your bod, good for the earth. Win-win.

Below, three of our favorites from the State of Matter’s current collection, which you should know will be 30% off from 11/25 to 12/6 — pick up one (or several) and let’s celebrate getting dressed again.

The Phoenix Button-Up Shirt

The Phoenix is set to be your button-up workhorse, and here’s the key: a slim cut coupled with 360° stretch, meaning you can maintain a razor-sharp silhouette while moving freely without fear of constantly re-tucking. Add moisture-wicking tech, wrinkle resistance and nearly 20 colors/patterns to choose from, and you may never wear another button-up again.

The Triton Pant

Of the Triton, State of Matter boasts “office looks, gym pants performance.” The key here is a fabric blend featuring 21% LYCRA® elastane for optimal stretch — one look at the gent performing various exercise poses in a pair of Tritons ought to let you know that these are trousers you can wear all day and will gladly handle whatever you throw at them.

The Lennox Blazer

Featuring a relaxed, unstructured cut and textured waffle-knit fabric, the Lennox is your new go-to business casual blazer. Equally at home over a tee with a pair of slim jeans as it is over your favorite shirt/tie combo with slacks and dress kicks. Plus: 360° stretch and the fact that you can machine wash it and hang it to dry without fearing wrinkles.
