    I mostly wear cotton shirts. I have a bunch of dri fit shirts that are probably 3-4 years old, but I find they cause a lot of static cling. Maybe too much body hair....

    hmm in the texas heat i use to always run shirtless..

    though drenched cotton is good because it helps cool you down. it dries really quickly in heat like that anyways.

    I prefer hair shirts for daily wear and the gym. Tech fabrics are alright, but they do a terrible job at reminding me of my fealty to The Lord

    I've never run without a shirt. It is a lose lose situation. If you are in shape and cut, you look like a smug douchebag. If you are not cut, you just look like a fat douchebag. A shirt always seems like a good idea. Or at least wear a singlet.

    In all fairness, athleisure is a big trend, so...

    Does a brisk walk to the pub count?

    This so much, tech fabrics smell like ass the second you sweat in them the wicking shit is such bullshit. I work out in sweats and a wife beater with an LA cap.

    Is there a brand in this space that really stands out from the rest? What's the difference between the guy buying Nike leggings versus picking up a pair Uniqlo heattech long johns apart from the "technical fabric"? We are talking about aesthetics more so than utility here and TBH all look same to me. With the exception of you being unfit because athleisure more than anything emphasizes the physique. I find it bit of a "lazy trend" where it becomes less about the clothes and more the fact that the typical person wearing it in in shape of all likelihood. And I think lazy because it takes the least amount of effort to pull on tights, throw on some running shorts with the latest sleek Nike runner and say this is a style.

    It is lazy.

    It was also the natural reaction to the "heritage" trend, though the marketed is big enough and segmented enough that both co-exist to a reasonable degree right now,|

    Re. specific brands - I can't think of a particular standout. I suppose Acronym. Outlier, the original douchebro/everyday carry/lightweight society brand, has recently put out stuff that is mire fashionable, but they remain generally true to their DNA.
