When, in 2015, US-based fitness and fashion enthusiast Stan Cheung was looking for gym wear that would both perform well and look stylish, he wasn’t happy with the options. “I was on the search for comfortable essentials that could be worn for a workout, going out for coffee, attending meetings or even going out to lunch. I ended up taking my existing gym clothes to the tailor to have them re-engineered. I couldn’t find what I was looking for so I decided to make it myself.”

RECOMMENDED: How to Get the Athleisure Look Right

The result was EYSOM (which stands for Exercise Your State Of Mind), a new athleisure label that specialises in, as Cheung says, “taking true performance gym wear and making it versatile enough to wear anywhere while looking elegant and stylish.” The new collection – an extension of last season’s core gym wear – moves the brand further into the lifestyle arena, with a broader range of clothes including jackets, cardigans, hoodies and sweatshirts. Our pick is this on-trend bomber. Here's three reasons why we want it on our backs immediately:

1. Performance fabric

The premium four-way stretch fabric has a soft feel, giving you both comfort and mobility. It’s also made with special UV-filtering fabric, which helps to protect against the sun’s rays for added outdoor comfort.

2. Attention to detail

The ribbed shawl collar folds up to keep your neck warm on cold days, while the longer hem provides extra coverage.

3. Practical finish

The zipped pocket at the sleeve offers secure storage – it’s the perfect size for a phone. Welt pockets, also with zippers, on the front let you keep your hands warm in winter as well as providing secure extra storage.
