    I don't know what's more ridiculously insane: [​IMG] That RLPL actually charges $225 for a pair of "˜Luxury Cotton Fleece Pant' (sweatpants) or that I actually considered purchasing a pair on sale (plus the 25% discount code). Jon.

    Go down to your nearest Target. Get similar for $10 ($20 for whole suit.) If you are going to spoil yourself, at least go with Juicy Couture or James Perse, or another brand that actually specialized in this type of thing (for less money.) Better yet, just get yourself something from American Apparel.

    Actually, instead I just bought 3 pairs (black / blue / gray) on sale for $11 each at GAP.

    Ew. The whole matching suit is just so New Jersey mafia; I rather wear different colors if coordinating an upper and lower "˜sweat' combination.

    Ew? Rather, cool. It's either NJ mafia or Rocky. Both very, very good. I'll get myself a matching set tonight.

    I guess we'll agree to disagree. I usually sport either a gray bottom with a black top, or a blue bottom with a gray top, etc...but never matching. Next thing ya know, you'se is starting to talk like Stallone... [​IMG] Jon.

    no, no, no. men should never wear juicy couture. are you kidding me? (along the same lines, men should never wear express for men).

    where was i reading about the grey sweatsuit revolution, lol? vanity fair, perhaps...fashionable anti-fashion can be great.

    $10? Did you order them online or buy them at the store? Also, have received them yet? If so, do they have a nice wide leg opening? I ordered a couple of pair from Polo and the leg opening was so narrow, I sent them back.

    I'm not an expert on the JC line but I believe the men's side does not have "Juicy" written along the backside.

    That said, no man should ever wear Juicy Couture. Hard to take a chap seriously if he tells you he is wearing it.

    What got me was the shoes--do they strike anyone else as not working with the fleece, but against the fleece?

    I agree with you John. Only legit. athletic shoes with the matching sweatsuit, if one must.

    I purchased them in store. They were surprisingly baggy (well, straight-legged), and fit quite well. GAP has or had a few different sweat models, some even have fleece inside for the winter. The model I purchased has same-color cotton mesh 1 ½ inch wide stripe running down the side. Jon.

    Express-Men is/was Structure, and I've been a fan of the brand since the early 90s, I personally think they make fairly good basics, and while their denim has gone downhill since they were no longer structure, they make cool basics like cheap dress shirts in weird colors, soft but fairly inexpensive cashmere sweaters, and cotton sweaters (which I like for kicking around in) that have pretty interesting designs and are comfortable, well-fitting, and fairly expensive. I think Express is fairly close to BR in quality for their stuff.

    I do agree that men shouldn't wear Juicy though.
