Myles was founded by a group of friends who never understood why athletic apparel always seemed to fall into two categories: old sweats and tees that have been relegated to “gym clothes” status because they’re too tattered or ugly to wear anywhere else, or overpriced “high-performance” gear you’re almost afraid to sweat in and looks ridiculous outside of the playing field.
Myles wanted to change that, starting with the dream of creating the perfect athletic short—a pair versatile and stylish enough for workouts, the outdoors, and around town. Myles went to work collecting fabric samples and visited a garment manufacturer down the road from their home in San Francisco to get prototypes made. After many tweaks and test runs, they were ready to launch their four-way stretch Everyday Short. They asked experts from the likes of Esquire, Gear Patrol, and Men's Healthto put them to the test, and they soon learned they weren’t the only ones ready to ask for more from their clothes. A few years and whole helluva lot of shorts later, Myles has grown into a full line of activewear made for making moves anytime, anywhere.
