    Having a hard time finding stuff that fits me lately. Shorts are especially hard for me to find. Most are too long and baggy if you have a slim frame, but at the same time I don't want to wear supertights at the gym icon_eek.gif

    A couple of my local Marshalls usually have Under Armour gear on clearance. I get it dirt cheap and it's the best brand of workout wear I've found.

    Lululemon is an amazing place to buy gym clothes! They have special workout shirts that breathe and they don't stink after a good workout and they dry very fast as well...

    according to your location you live in Milwaukee... so here is the nearest location:

    322 N. Water Street
    Milwaukee, WI 53202

    its a bit expensive but very good quality

    ^^ I second this guy. Though I'm not a big fan of overpriced clothing, Lululemon is one of the only brands that make gym shorts that aren't baggy as hell. I have two pairs of their Run Response shorts. They sit just above the knee, so they're neither really long nor really short. They also have an inner underwear lining just like normal running shorts. They allow full range of motion on my legs without getting in the way like baggy shorts.

    As for their durability, my crossfit trainers have been wearing theirs for a about a year, and they've been through some tough workouts without much wear and tear.

    Walmart and Kohls. I'm old school and still train in either the equivalent of my seventies P.E. clothes (semi-fitted mid-thigh cotton shorts, jock, sweatsocks and a t-shirt) or sweatpants and a maybe a wifebeater. If you don't count the expensive footwear (never skimp on the shoes, gf) a typical gym outfit for me costs under $20. But outside the gym? I clean up nice (see tux pic in profile).

    I go to Burghardt on Capitol Dr. in Brookfield. They have the best selection and prices locally here.

    They are open until 6 pm on Sunday's which is nice.

    I have to agree, the lulu lemon pieces that I have,, I LOVE!
    As high as they are,, they feel like collectors items.. Nothing feels quite the same on your body though. It drapes beautifully and the hand/feel is pretty damn nice!
    I love the pants for coming and going from the gym in the winter time or just lounging around the house.
    They show every curve Big Time...!

    Love Lululemon too, the best

    Those do look great. They look like they are great running shorts that will keep you dry.

    I do that, too, and also thrift shops and goodwill, when I am broke. haha It's amazing the new and almost brand new clothing you can sometimes find in thrift stores and garage sales. I think some people buy the stuff or get it as gifts and then never wear it and then give it away to thrift stores or sell it really cheap at a garage sale.

    Some people throw out really good stuff in the dumpster. A lot of stuff in my apartment was either in a dumpster or on the curb for trash pick up. lol

    I don't like the long/baggy trend either. If you want some decent workout shorts, get some running shorts. They usually run about mid-length of your leg, they're form fitting, and they have a brief liner.

    I've found some good stuff at TJ Max - underarmour, Nike etc. I pretty much work out in anything so this is less of an issue for me but always great when I find some decent tops for cycling and shorts for running.

    I've started to invest in good socks (when you're a runner it really helps) and get those at cycling stores or running stores.

    Shorts that are marketed as "soccer shorts" will tend to be shorter (but not too short) and less baggy. Adidas makes good ones. I got all mine at Sports Authority...

    forget all the fancy brands. Get a pair of champion mesh shorts. they are only $13 and fit really well. They are the perfect length and the leg openings do not flair open. shorts with huge leg openings make your legs look small. These actually get slightly smaller so they kinda accent your ass too. They also have pockets! Just plain black shorts with no designs whatsoever.

    I have three black ones. They match with whatever color shirt you are wearing since they are sold black.. and well solid black goes with any color. Don't get faded or a light shade of black because that does not go with everything.

    Again, $13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They look baggy in the stupid picture.

    I get hit on all the time when i wear these at the gym... well.. that and because I am know for being the town whore but thats a whole another story.

    I like Aussiebum.com.au

    The training shorts have the undies built into them so there's one less thing to remember when you're rushing out the door at 6am to get to the gym before work.
