I LOVE exercise gear. I could shop for new running outfits or shoes all day long and much prefer it to dress shopping. I mean, wouldn’t you much rather wear comfy, spandexy things instead of uncomfortable formal wear?? I know I would! So when I was given the opportunity to try out some gear from YMX by Yellowman, I said YES PLEASE!
Here is the story behind YMX from their website:
YMX (acronym for YellowMan Expression) was launched in 2009 as an extension of the original, high-end tattoo clothing brand, YellowMan (founded in 2004). Built on an extensive library of original tattoo artwork collected around the globe, YellowMan offers collectible, limited wearable art prints. YMX was created to offer an alternative to YellowMan in a broader, commercial market, while still preserving the authenticity of its origins.
YMX offers multifunctional garments that bridge the gap between athletic and fashion garments. Featuring high-comfort, lightweight MadKool fabrics and detailed, original prints, YMX garments can be worn for athletic use, or for casual wear. As a matter of fact, because of the moisture-wicking properties of the fabric, many people wear YMX in both active and leisure activities without having to change!
Tattoo artwork?? Well that’s right up my alley and when I saw some of the designs on the website, they reminded me of my tattoo…fun!
I was hoping I would get a tank top sent to me because I prefer to work out in those opposed to tees. I was psyched when I opened the package and there was a tank AND a tee…score! My first impression of both items was how lightweight and thin the material was. When I tried them on, it was like almost wearing nothing. The shirts are make of MadKool Performance Fabrics, which are made specifically to keep athletes of any sport cool and dry. Sounds good to me!
The tank I received is the Infinite Flower scoop neck in purple. Love, love, love this design!! I wore this to yoga recently and it was SO comfortable. Perfect to freely move around in get in those poses. Plus the pattern has that zen-like feel, perfect for yoga.
The tee i received is the Infinite Phoenix short sleeve raglan in grey and I surprised myself by actually loving this shirt. I usually avoid grey clothing because it shows sweat, but because of the pattern on this shirt it’s not so bad.
But my favorite thing about this tee is the pocket on the back…I love pockets on athletic gear! It’s actually a decent size and can fit your phone or a few gels when you go out for a run.
The shirts are a bit on the pricey side, but they seem to be worth it for the high quality and fun patterns. Also, if you like YMX by Yellowman on Facebook, you will get a discount code so make sure to check that out!
What do you think of YMX by Yellowman? Do you like the patterns?
