    So loads of my gym clothes are really old and while be comfortable they aren't standing the test of time very well!

    Where did you get your favourite gym kit from? Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    If you don't have something like Sports Authority or Dicks Sporting Goods in your town, the internet is a good place to look. I've purchased a good bit of my own workout stuff on Amazon.

    Personally, I'm a complete slave to Under Armour. Love their gear and I'll buy almost anything they make if I think it fits me. It's always comfortable to me, breathes well, keeps me dry, all that. Plus it looks sexy hah.

    I prefer Nike and hate to admit it but Lullulemon makes really great stuff.

    I work out exclusively in Lululemon. Great clothes. Reputation though for being dick suckers' clothes. Guess that fits. Google Lululemon and gay.

    any wife beaters on special , like 3 for $10.
    some adidas or reebok shorts/ track pantsfrom a nearby outlet.
    running shoes i no longer use for running .

    the hottest guys at my gym seem to wear whatever , old tees , cargo shorts, surf shorts, tank tops , worn out track pants ...
    i'm not one of them of course , but blending in makes me go unnoticed.

    I too am obsessed with lululemon, you can get them at their store (online or an actual store) or if you have a Nordstrom Rack anywhere near you, that is where I get mine. . .because they are expensive for work-out clothes, but at Rack they're fine.

    Am I the only one to whom Under Armour feels like old school polyester? Wicks moisture my ass - the brand makes my skin crawl. In my experience manmade miracle fabrics work best for cold weather sports like snow skiing. This princess-and-the-pea sticks to the aforementioned 3-for-$10 wifebeaters or cotton crew neck t-shirts and $5-10 cotton gym shorts falling somewhere between mid-thigh and knee. Everyone will be happy to know that after sacking the poly in the '70s I ditched the striped calf length tube socks in '82.

    I like Under Armour too. I run a lot, and it's the best brand I've tried for keeping cool. The sizes tend to run tight. I wear the looser fitting clothes for mobility (and because I don't yet have the body for the tight stuff).

    +1 on Underarmour

    Wicks away sweat without trapping odor and it's comfortable.

    Some from Sports Authority, and some from the Underarmour outlet store.

    I get most of mine from Target and Walmart (C9 and Starter)...or I may get some of the Nike, Adidas, etc from a discount/clearance/overstock store. I also agree with the one poster about getting the 3/$10 tanks or just cutting up some T-shirts that you already own. I don't see the point in spending a lot of money on clothes that you'll just sweat in.

    I love Under Armour and it lasts forever. I have some I have had for eight years.

    Lululemon here too.

    That shit is expensive... but it will never wear out or start stankin.

    Oh, and they make workout shorts and sweatpants with a fly front, so your junk ain't pointing the way as you walk around the gym.

    I usually wear the free cheap shirts I get from bars or when I volunteer or participate in "a-thons" until they get pitted out or worn, then get rid of them. I am constantly getting more.

    If I do need to buy stuff I go to Marshall's or whatnot. They always have Nike, Adidas, etc., shorts for cheap. Not spending alot of $ on clothes for the gym.

    Has anybody bought anything from Adrian Bartol? They advertise(d) on here so I got a few t-shirts. They seem decently made and are mad cheap.

    I've never spent allot on gym clothes.. wal mart.. sports chek.. I should think about updating what i wear to the gym. Some of my gym clothes are kinda old too. I think a good pair of shoes are the most important part.
