    T-shirt and soccer shorts are my go-to. I work out everyday and still don't feel the need to invest in any "nice" exercise gear. Granted, I mostly wear team-issued stuff I was given in high school and college, but even if I didn't have that I'd never shell out for Lululemon.

    Plain white Hanes tagless wifebeater - worn as an undershirt from 6AM-8PM. I work out at 8PM. No reason to soil 2 shirts, right? - best range of motion, breathability

    Black underarmour ankle socks - anti-microbial, don't stretch, have yet to get a hole in them

    Navy above the knee underarmour shorts, fall above the knee - easily tucked in underarmour boxerbriefs during deadlifts (so I don't pants myself if the bar catches the shorts on the way down) - resists chalk - generally reusable for more than 1 session due to the nature of the fabric (provide its not 150 degrees in the gym)

    New Balance Minimus sneakers - barefoot benefits without the silly look, super breathable and lightweight - holding up very well over time



    I cannot fathom wearing pants at the gym.

    The only aspects of fashion/style that I can see fitting at the gym are:
    1) Fit
    2) Not having holes/stains on your clothes
    3) Working out in a way that does not leave you drenched in sweat or bloody

    Dolce&Gabbana Gym (they call it Palestra now) - loved it since they started the line in the mid 2000s. I use a lot of these collections when hitting the gym. The best pieces are hard to find, though.

    Ed Hardy T Shirt + True Religion Jeans shd get you through lifting and stretch class.

    For outdoors, Dolce & Gabbana have some funky pants and singlets. If you want to really stand out, Cavalli does some animal prints.

    Oh... Lol at this thread

    Just wear basketball shorts and a dri-fit shirt. It is pointless spending hundreds of dollars on gear that will just get sweaty and ruined.

    Lululemon is run by a cult. Stay away.

    I have a pair of black Puma sweat pants that I wear with v-neck Uniqlo tee's, and I've been told they look pretty good. TAD Gear Pathfinder jacket as a cover up. Used to wear Adidas Officials or GSG9s but they don't make 'em anymore, now I wear Inov8 Roclite 295 Tacticals in black.

    I tend to wear the underarmour charged cotton shirts with their mesh shorts. Doesn't look odd at all since they are fitted.

    Yeah, seriously. What's the problem with these? I realize this thread might be better off in the SW forums, but he asked for stylish gym attire (though I admit these may be on the fashionable side).

    Maybe just a good coating of baby oil. Everyone knows all the best action is in the men's changing rooms in front of the mirrors. Shiiit sometimes after a hardcore flexing session I dont even make it into the actual gym.

    Out of curiosity I stopped by Lululemon today for the first time. It's very expensive with goods that don't appear to be any better than what you find at most sports shops. The place was busy, but the patrons seemed to be more fashion-minded than serious about physical activity. I won't be returning.
