I generally like to wear shorts that go down to my knees to hide my lean legs a bit.

Looking for quality fitting shorts and t-shirts to wear to the gym. I don't like the big waist bands that abercrobie sports shorts have and such

What do you recommend?

Do some squats, it will help bulk up your legs. As for gym gear, just look at under armor or nike for some basics. They offer so many types that you are bound to find something that works.

Try something like this if you have a Lululemon near you. a bit more expensive than Nike or Abercrombie stuff, but it's really good quality.

People actually still wear sweatpants for exercise? Is it 1974?

Don't worry, nobody is looking at your legs. I hate long shorts anyway--what's the point?

Nothing wrong with sweatpants at the gym - do it all the time, at least on days I'm not planning on running. If you're just lifting, sweats, or track pants are the stylish way to go.

If you go with basketball shorts, there are some that have more structure in the bottom - not just floppy mesh. These work better for skinny legs in the gym - especially when you're doing crunches or something

I was thinking of the same idea, but not the mega sized versions that extend down to the shin. I normally wear compression shorts under my basketball shorts. Also, try doin' leg presses to bulk up ...

espouse your slim legs, wear shorter shorts (e.g. Zegna) - just do some cycle, as advised earlier
