Yoga Men: What NOT to Wear

I get that there aren't many yoga fashion choices for you manly yoga enthusiasts out there. But there's no excuse for these fashion faux pas in the studio—or anywhere else for that matter.

The Loin Cloth. I don't care how hot it is outside or how proud you are of your Uddiyana Bandha... This is uncalled for.

The Tighty Brighty. This is basically just a modern twist on the loin cloth. I'm sorry, Iyengar purists. I know you want us to see your alignment, but please... there are some things that we don't need to see align, OK?

The 80s Track Suit. While the man below is pretty adorable and is doing an impressive pose, he is committing several fashion crimes. First, notice the elastic at the bottom of his pants legs. Second, the pants are shiny and probably swish when he moves from pose to pose. And third, red from head to toe is only OK for one man—and his last name is Clause.

Combine all of these infractions together and you get the worse picture I could find on the Internet of a man doing yoga. No, no, no. Just... no.
