We’ve Moved!


What’s going on!? Keep calm, and shop on at MANTAWEAR.COM!

YOGACLOTHES.COM still works, it will automatically redirect you to MANTAWEAR.COM for the next couple of months. However, YOGACLOTHES.COM will eventually stop working so be sure to update any browser bookmarks you may have! I am working with Google to update the search results for MANTA WEAR so that they start showing mantawear.com soon instead of yogaclothes.com.

Why is this happening!? I think that MANTAWEAR.COM best represents the brand. I also heard from some new customers that the YOGACLOTHES.COM address led them to believe the site would be selling traditional western, tight-fitting yoga clothes. As you know, we sell the most comfortable cotton, loose-fitting clothes in the world, and people use them as yoga clothes, travel clothes, casual clothes, pajamas, retreat clothes or spa clothes.

Well then why did you stop using MANTAWEAR.COM in the first place!? It’s a long story involving pirates! The pirates were holding the domain name hostage, and I finally decided to pay the ransom!

Thank You! Thank you for being our loyal customer! Be sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter for weekly coupons, news, and sale information! And like our Facebook page to get all the updates!

A Guide To Buying Men’s Yoga Clothes

White Yoga Shirt Manta Wear

Hello all you men out there who have decided to take up yoga and really don’t know what to do when it comes to finding the proper yoga clothes for men. You probably have looked at several yoga clothing websites and have found lots of yoga apparel for women, but not a lot of selection for men’s yoga clothes. You might feel some confusion on making a buying decision because some of the clothing features spandex which is uncomfortable and does not ventilate. Or perhaps you couldn’t imagine wearing some of the yoga outfits that are offered for men.

Here are some considerations when looking for men’s yoga clothes:

1.  Bear in mind that yoga exercises are about comforting the mind so make sure that your body is comfortable as well.

  1. Your Yoga clothing should give you room to maneuver because of all the different types of yoga moves performed which may entail twists, turns and stretching, Cotton Drawstring Pants FeaturesMen need practical clothing for these exercises. If your choice of yoga clothing is stiff and tight fitting then this can hamper some of your yoga moves and poses. This can also have an effect on your concentration levels due to the stress of discomfort.
  2. If you are looking for comfortable yoga clothes or meditation clothing for a retreat, you want to look good and feel good.

Considering  all of the above,  Manta Wear is the perfect yoga attire for men. It is 100% cotton casual clothing which breaths and feels great next to your skin. Going on a retreat? Manta Wear looks attractive and is practical. It’s the only clothing that you will need to bring. Does the retreat require white clothes? Manta Wear has white yoga shirts such as the Freedom Top, white yoga pants called the Drawstring Pants, and for the tropical locales, the white beach shirt known as the Calypso Shirt.

Spandex was created by the Du Pont lavatories in 1959. and is derived from petrochemicals (petroleum product) and its chemical name is polyurethane polymer. In this “enlightened” age where we all want to practice yoga and attain optimum health for our own bodies and the planet, which of course, is a wonderful goal. The one problem with this lofty ideal is that somehow there appears to be selective reasoning. We choose to wrap our bodies in a material which is petroleum-based, non-biodegradable and non-renewable, and the production is associated with the release of greenhouse gases.

Happiness is Manta Wear

For those people who are looking for something that looks great, comfortable and loose fitting, look no further- the answer is Manta Wear, the most comfortable clothing in the world.

100% Cotton fabric called Manta is produced today from an ancient Mayan technique that, when washed develops into a unique herringbone pattern.  This textured type of fabric sits lightly and allows your skin to breathe.
