What are you doing on RS? Shouldn't you be helping Mr. W expand to USA + UK + Asia ?

I think alot of their stuff is overpriced. However I do own multiple articles of clothing from them...
shorts, pants, shirts, jackets...

It seems alot of their products are hit and miss.

Shorts are cut really weird...
Hoodies are very comfortable and will last for years...
Sweats.. they are a bit long
shirts... standard.. but i love UA more...

lulu has great stuff for men and women.. I bless them everytime I see clients and girls walk in in their pants... droool.. Their mens stuff is pretty nice too, but as much as I like their stuff, I don't think I could ever justify spending that much money on their clothes.

I have a couple of shirts, and one short, and one pant. Really comfortable; however, with their increase push into other areas such as outdoor jackets, I find their quality isn't as great as it used to be.

They should just stick to what they know best (yoga/workout), but of course, in this day and age they have to expand so I don't blame them. However, the stuff I have is over 5 years old and I still wear it today and the quality is still great. But of course, they don't have that shirt that I bought over 5 years ago anymore. It's mostly cotton mixed with stretch lycra of some sort. I don't know exactly which one I have, but it's unfortunate as is definitely a nice material.

Pricing wise, it is way more expensive than some other stuff (even back then).

I have a few things from LL, and agree their pricing is too high for most stuff. I would never buy shirts and shorts from LL, as UA is about 1/2 the price when ordered from EastBay.com.

I have 2 LL jackets, both were < $150, which I thought was a bargain as comparable jackets from NorthFace are much more.

I have a pair of the LL smash pants, most comfortable and stylish athletic I've ever owned. Plus women compliment them all the time. Sucks they are $100, otherwise I would have bought 3 pairs.

I have several pieces of LL clothing. Their styling has gone a little awry over the past couple of seasons, but their stuff still fits well. The outlet is always a crapshoot (especially if you aren't XXL), but sometimes you get lucky and find a one-of-a-kind sample in M/L.

The only company that comes close to making anything remotely stylish and functional is Nike (at least when it comes to running gear.) For example, Nike still charges 80+ for a zip-up running shirt; at that price, you might as well get LL.

They have more than one pair of shorts to choose from. Most shorts are designed to fit "hockey butt" aka big glutes. Most active people will have large glutes because it is such a large muscle group in the legs.

lululemon offers complimentary hemming at all of their store locations.

UNDER ARMOUR:
To each his own, but Under Armour and lululemon's main fabric "luon" are completely different. lululemon's luon has a much less lycra content and thus doesn't provide as much muscle support.

If you guys are a fan of UA's signature fabric, try lululemon's luxtreme a try. It is a little closer than luon.

ya the problem with UA is that it is strictly aimed at performance and sports.. with lulu lemon, I like a lot of their casual wear which can be worn while grocery shopping, or going for a run or even hitting the gym. With UA, when you wear it, it looks like you are ready for "GAME TIME" lol.

Nike is a good in between, moreseo for girls than guys though.

For hockey and sports, I will stick to UA.

they do have some plain ts and long sleeves etc... the ones that come in the box. but the logo just throws the apparel off when trying to wear it with jeans.

On a side note.. their underwear looks super comfy.. but I am not going to spend 30 bucks a pop on ginches...

ok back on topic with lulu...

Ive worn Lululemon once but have never been called "gay". The clothes may be expensive and rarely go on sale but it lasts like forever.

and the last time i checked.. sequins and tin foil were gayer than a yoga logo.. and its 3 times more expensive.

Oh and the boxers are worth it, have a pair for every day of the week.

Lulu

But I own UA boxer briefs too, I wear those for sport (running and conditioning) when I don't need compression shorts w/ jock. Lulu boxers are great for everyday.

Word to the wise, DONT go into the change room while waiting for a friend/girlfriend/wife. I made the mistake while going with my wife.

There are just TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many girls that shouldn't be wearing those pants. For the 1 or 2 that it looked good on, the other 8 just burned in my eyes.. I felt sick after. NOT worth it.

On another note, these things shouldn't even be worn out in public unless you're doing yoga/exercising.

tell that to the 10000000000000 girls that wear it grocery shopping etc.. thing is.. I can understand why people do wear it while doing errands etc.. It looks good and they are damn comfy... IMO, I don't see anythign wrong with them.. they are no different than wearing sweats and a t shirt (what used to be the staple of workout gear), but just look better too. But you are right, 80% of girls should not wear form fitting clothing.

The guys that look good wearing lulu are athletic guys.. beach volleyball player builds... if you are too buff, itll make you look kind of .. err.. homo... if you are lanky as whit... no matter how small a size you get, it will be hanging off of you.

oh ya, and if you ugly, don't bother... Have any of you ever seen the same shirt on 2 different people? A good looking guy/girl can make anything look good. lol
