    Where do you guys get your gym clothing!? Is there an incredible website I am just not aware of where I can order some stuff?

    Everything at Sports Authority is too expensive!

    AMoonHawk saidCut-off old sweats and make them shorts. Cut-off the sleaves of old t-shirts. You are men going in to workout and sweat ... not women going to make a fashion statement.


    i agree in so much that workout wear should put an emphasis on function over form (accepting that, as clothing, a certain amount of attention will be paid to form in order to achieve function). However in certain applications a fabric designed to wick moisture away may prove more comfortable than a basic cotton blend. When i jog or skate (or bike) i wear old cycling tops for their lower-back pockets since my athletic shorts don't have [pockets]. No reason to buy new workout clothes when posh people give away or donate perfectly good stuff that they're simply tired of.

    Hey whenever i buy anything i try to buy the best... something that i want to wear all the time. My Assos bib bike shorts were $330, but i've had them for 10 years and wear them every time i go on the bike... they've been sweet. I found that you can have a few real nice things that you use all the time or a bunch of stuff that you have to decide to wear every once in a while....

    But here's the caveat.... it's not how much you make ... it's how much you spend.... so if you don't spend it... you don't have to make it.

    I'm cheap. While I would love to have abunch of underarmor, I actually end up buying the Starter stuff from Wal-Mart. I'm too old to worry about being in with the cool gym kids anyway. lol

    Dick's but only if it's on sale.

    Try websites like Finish Line or Eastbay and check out their Sale sections.

    You can actually find some cool stuff at thrift stores, and at good prices, the problem is, you can't just walk in and pick up what you need. You have to go through a lot of clothes to find something that will work, fit, and isn't trash.
    Come to think about it, it's a lot like dating...

    I go to Dick's or Academy to get my gym shorts and shorts (though I have a couple gym shorts from A&F, but i waited and got them on post-summer clearance, which is a good time at any sports clothing store to buy tank tops, sleevless shirts and the like. Only thing I paid full price for were my UnderArmour thigh length undershorts (have three of them). I do'nt tend to spend a lot of $$$ on gym clothes since I'm not there ot look good, I'm there to get sweaty and grow bigger. The only thing I do is try them on to make sure they fit and feel comfortable before I buy them.

    Any old tshirt will do and a pair of mesh shorts...nothing fancy. If you're crossfitting, you'll just take the shirt off anyway.

    championusa.com You can buy Champion brand stuff, I wait for the sales and I am pleased with their products. I am a HUGE fan of their LaCrosse style shorts.

    Lululemon

    Not cheap, but definitely comfortable, good looking, well-fitting, and long-lasting.

    T.J. Maxx is a great place to find athletic stuff and regular clothes too. I got a Marmot jacket there this year for $60. It is hit or miss though--you might have to check back from time to time.

    You can get shorts most anyplace and as far as shirts, just wear old tees. Personally I cut all of the sleeves out all of those cheap shirts I get from races.and as far as sweating, you're working out, you should be sweating so don't worry about. Just make sure you wipe the machines after you use them. icon_smile.gif

    You are speaking to the thrift store master. My roommate and I go once a week, but we also don't buy something each time we go. Our entire wardrobe is based off of our local thriftstores and we wear ties, slacks, button shirts, and sweater vests every day. I've been doing this for 5 months now and I haven't recycled a single day of wear yet.

    Then there's the shitload of running/basketball shorts I've gotten.


    Well, I bow to the Master, however, I've been shopping at Thrift stores longer than you've been alive, so...
    Anyway, I rarely shop for clothes at thrift stores anymore, due in part to not needing clothes, and I have found stuff cheaper on sale at retail stores. I do look now and then when I have time, and you can find decent stuff for cheap if you're willing to take the time to look. If you just want some cheap gym clothes, then thrifts are an option, and I like the fact that most stores operate to help legit charities. I mostly shop for antiques and stuff I collect, I am gay after all.

    TJ Maxx has good sports stuff on sale. Nike shorts are just $10. Plus they have signs on the racks that say, "active bottoms." Totally makes it work going! icon_lol.gif

    They have a sale section. Yes it is $$$ but it lasts. I have tees that are 10 years old and still look new. Can't say that about the Target or Walmart stuff that I have used.
    Though bonus for me that being a trainer allows me to claim my gym apparel on my taxes. icon_smile.gif
