I misread.

I see that my lululemon hoodie makes me gay, not a hippie.

If you can't picture Arnold Schwarzenegger wearing it, then it is gay.

Therefore Lululemon on men is gay.

hip·pie
[hip-ee] Show IPA
noun
a person, especially of the late 1960s, who rejected established institutions and values and sought spontaneity, direct personal relations expressing love, and expanded consciousness, often expressed externally in the wearing of casual, folksy clothing and of beads, headbands, used garments, etc.


did you confuse hippie with hipster?

hipster
Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although "hipsterism" is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts and asymmetric side-swept bangs. Such styles are often associated with the work of creative stylists at urban salons, and are usually too "edgy" for the culturally-sheltered mainstream consumer. The "effortless cool" urban bohemian look of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater towards the hipster demographic. Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical thinking abilities. Cons...

regardless, neither terms are relevant to under armour or any sports brand.

so you don't believe in brand name clothing is basically what you are saying. I prefer to wear comfortable swear wicking, stretch attire when working out, compared to a white t shirt and sweats.

If you are going to state why certain brands are bad/ why you won't purchase them, at least use the right terms. Sound like you don't like mainstream brands... which makes me think you are one of the two terms that is defined above.

Please go back to reading comprehension school. If you like wearing pants that stretch tight over your balls, I can't stop you, but you're still gay.

People get bent over the stupidest fucking shit nowadays. I look like shit in a speedo. Its not fucking speedos fault. Its my fault for drinking 30+ beers a week. My size 31 slim fit diesel jeans had the crotch rip out when I was skateboarding. I should have bought a 32. Lets put it on the front page of the province how I got fucked over by big corporations.

Lol wut? As spidey said, UA is worn by professional athletes... Its performance clothing. For people who are not couch potatoes.

If anything Lululemon is more hippy (Not saying it is), and that would be because they have some save the environment crap, and some of their clothes had hemp or something (I saw a sign when I past the metro location, not sure about this one).

UA doesn't give a shit about the environment, besides protecting your ass from it.

I stand behing UA's gear wholeheartedly. They make excellent cold weather gear and good quality workout gear...

This thread is painful to read.

Lululemon is a fucking womens clothing brand. It was created as a direct response to the increasing participation rates of women in sports for women to wear.

Since the continued success of the brand, they have attempted to grow the brand into the male demographic, but even after 15 years the company only sells about 15% of its products to men.

Compare that to an athletic apparel company founded by a jock (Underarmour) which sees about 40% of its sales to women.

Also, Yoga participation (what the brand essentially identifies with) is roughly 83% women and 17% men in North America, roughly in line with the sales numbers.

Ive bought lots of lululemon clothes for girls, but ive never bought any myself. I don't really identify with the brand, although I have tried Yoga.

You guys who wear it, just for the sake of proving how open minded and forward thinking you are just as sad as the guy who thinks it equivalent to a Jewish star for gays.

It is obvious however that most of you are not gay, because gays don't get so offended by those types of comments, only their socially awkward straight friends do. Seriously.

For me its like Hyundai. Ill always associate that company with crap cars. Lululemon should have done the same thing I thought Hyundai should have done when they started building better cars.

Rebadge the new products. Johnnybanana Athletica anyone?

First time I've ever heard UA being associated with a hippie image/lifestyle.

I have a closet full of UA gear for the gym and tactical use purposes (yes we PMC, military and law enforcement folk wear UA in the field at times), I guess that makes me a full blown hippie then, which is odd considering I'm pro big corporation, pro guns, pro military, pro big oil, pro lower tax rates for high income earners and corporations, anti welfare, hate Greenpeace and PETA with a passion, etc....

Well I guess there is only one thing for me to do then, pack up my UA gear and go join a hippie commune

well.. fuck all of you (except Inaii)

im going to go buy a LuLu mens hoodie cuz they are comfy as fuuuuuuuuuu

not hipter, not gay. i just like comfy clothes!

but back on topic. i think they have a point, not all clothes are made for all people. if you want to fit in these clothes made for a specific height-weight proportion then become that... otherwise dont blame a company for not catering to your KPC lovin, not putting donuts down ass that dosnt fit into tight fitting clothing..

just saying, small car parking spots are made for small cars.. dont park a truck in there and complain that is didnt fit! go find a bigger spot to park.

this is the same shit as the Abercrombie "controversy". The owner said their clothes weren't for everyone... i.e "If you're fat, I don't want you wearing my clothes". But it seems they have now decided to make larger sizes... Maybe U will follow

I don't think this comparison is very analogous to Lululemon. Abercrombie was saying they don't want unattractive people wearing their brand, whereas Lululemon is admitting that their product may not 'work' (i.e. wears prematurely/pills) for certain body types.

It's unfair of the media to assume Wilson was talking about fatties. Fit women can just the same have thick thighs/quads that may rub up against each other causing the same pilling issue.

this isn't news... i have seen plenty of diaphanous lululemon pants on girls and they were not fat but they may have been wearing a size or two smaller than they should have.
side note i've been into a lululemon store a couple times and never even knew they had mens clothes guess my eyes were concentrated elsewhere

Problem is lululemon has larger sizes but XL's will squeeze into a M because the material stretches. "See I can fit into a medium when I'm normally a XL! "
