no one seemed to mention adidas...
are they any good....?


what about stuff from places like old navy or the gap or some other less expensive options...?
are there any good online sites that sell discounted activewear?
it seems like if you work out several times a week you would need a collection of these clothes and it really starts to add up...$$$...
i'm looking for some more affordable options so i can save my pennies for my street wear!...
:p


any and all recommendations/feedback much appreciated...
thanks in advance

Hi Softie!! How's everything?

I usually wear Adidas, I love their streamlined styles and their shoes seem to fit my feet the best. I wish I could afford Stella's line, but for me it doesn't seem worth spending so much on something I'll be sweating on. I wear Adidas track pants for running.

However, you are right it starts to add up when you work out more. For tops, the UNIQLO dry line (forget the exact name) is very good and inexpensive (got mine for 6 dollars or so). Your perspiration stays cool and dry, and doesn't show. Wouldn't win awards for style, but just basic and good enough for my jogs.

once upon a time ...hahah when i did some sports...i always let my father choose my stuff like more than brands and look trendy i wanted to run faster, sweat less and get quality not such a fashion nightmare to do sports... cause if you want quality and a brand u have to spend a lot if you can find it at regular shops, and even though is not as good as brands that are so specialized that btw it doesn't mean they are cheap but they are worth it... like socks with silver...its a whole world of special stuff really...and people who tried them repeat so... they got be something cool on them

patagonia had been my activewear since the late 80's, because the designs were simple and anonymous, and the customer service was excellent over here. (maybe still is, just that I haven't bought anything these days)

us site seems to have more stuff

yes uniqlo also has its "sportswear" sort of line.
unfortunately its page in the link is dead right now somehow. maybe they are replacing it with F/W ?
http://store.uniqlo.com/jp/store/feature/sportswear



naoki takizawa is going to sell this stuff called naoki next month. the prices will not be so good, but the fabrics are by toray, from which I'd expect the highest-tech as of now.

^ Patagonia is also an ethical company ... they use organic cotton, some polyester from recycled soft drink bottles (those items are marked), and donate 1% of their gross, I believe. I have a bunch of t-shirts, etc. from them. Wearing one right now, in fact

Thanks runner, I just love the Stella designs and looking forward to the Uniqlo.
Nice new take on the "run-ska!", will have to try it out.

I also like Patagonia (esp. for their company ethics) but they're a little more expensive and design-wise, more boxy/traditional.

I prefer Adidas for my workout gear. I love their Climacool range.They have styles that look nice and function great.
Plus they wash and wear really well so they keep looking brand new for agessss.

For men, don't wear tanktops and spandex like the wrestlers wear.

Work It Out - Activewear and Workout Gear
For me, having a personal style includes having a "personal workout-style", I won't show up at the gym in old, washed-out sweatpants and a stained t-shirt- I've spent a lot of time and money on my "gym warderobe" as well as my regular wardrobe. My gym-style is a lot more simple and clean than my regular style, and it's actually practical- there's nothing practical about my regular wardrobe.

I tend to go for simple, sleek tops with built-in bra (less fuss):


nelly.com

I love the Maja Loose Pants from Rönisch, they've been a staple in my workout-wardrobe for years, as they're so insanely flattering- my bum has never looked better than they do in a pair of those:



xxl.no

I also love my Casall 3/4 pants:



xxl.no


If my top and pants are toned-down and simple, like those above, I need something to add a bit of me, a bit of quirkiness and fun- my new workout shoes do that job perfectly:



Nelly.com


What's your "gym style" like? Do you have one?
