Welcome to the future of your wardrobe. WAHTS is the Amsterdam-based luxury label with a real calling: to rethink high end menswear by eliminating artificial divisions between fashion and sportswear. The WAHTS signature is minimalist athleisure designed for what the label calls "a modern hybrid lifestyle". Formality has no place here, meticulously crafted luxury very much does.

These are the new athleisure classics
WAHTS stands for “We Are Here To Stay", a defiant message of permanence in the often fickle world of fashion. WAHTS is anything but fickle. The look is clear-eyed: aimed at a contemporary life where business and pleasure meld into each other. The feel is always deluxe, using the finest fabrics and emphasising impeccable cut.
The new WAHTS SS22 collection is replete with monochrome, subtle highly contemporary statements. These are the new athleisure classics, whether your choice is a 100% extra-fine merino crewneck sweatshirt with cashmere-like feel, a hooded sweat jacket in water repellent technical fabric or a pair of essential running sneakers crafted from soft Italian suede and finished with a Vibram sole.
Production of all collections is strictly limited in keeping with the WAHTS way of being anything but fast fashion. The WAHTS policy of "conscious entrepreneurship” means selected factories in northern Portugal with fair employment and conditions. And, overall, as WAHTS themselves put it, a commitment to "trust, teamwork, honesty and mutual respect" in all that they do.
The WAHTS message of redefining what high end menswear is - of placing comfort and function front and central - is conveyed in everything this ten-year-old label does. The journey ahead is sure to be an invigorating one. The future of your wardrobe is right here.
