Here’s the deal with Lululemon. It’s widely regarded as the best brand for premium women’s and men’s workout clothing. It’s hard to deny that. They make high quality products that are fashionable, functional, and are insanely comfortable. I’ve been using Lululemon men’s athletic wear for a number of years now and (not to brag, but I kind of am bragging) I am signed up for the company’s Sweat Collective, which basically gives trainers discounts. I’ve found that you cannot go wrong with almost any workout clothes for men from Lululemon. The shirts fit true to size and are unbelievably breathable and comfortable to wear. Like Rhone shirts, they’re in-part made with a silver fiber that stops the clothes from smelling like body odor. From both brands, I’ve had shirts that go through two or three workouts without smelling at all—it’s pretty remarkable. Some of the Lulu and Rhone shorts/pants feature the same material. I would put their shirts on par. Hard to choose one over the other. That goes for short and long sleeve shirts and tank tops. The selection of gym clothes for men at Lululemon far exceeds that of Rhone, however. Simply put, Lulu has more options.
Lululemon Sale Tips
The biggest downside to Lulu though, is price. Typically Lulu is about $10 – $20 more expensive than Rhone on comparable items. The insider hack here is to shop the Lululmeon clearance section or Lululemon outlet store where items are slightly older, but much cheaper. Also, you could diligently look for the Lulu We Made Too Much sale, which is where they sell overstocked items at discounted prices. That ends up being fairly worthwhile to check out. But the best of all is to wait for Lululemon Black Friday 2017 or Lululemon Cyber Monday 2017 because we’ve seen in the past where a decently large selection of items go on discount.
Rhone is likely the second best maker of gym clothes for men. Of course, Nike and the others are good as well, but Rhone only makes men’s clothing and they’ve been pretty successful with hyper-focusing on specifically what men care about. As I mentioned above, the shirts and tanks are top notch, on-par with Lulu. The shorts on the other hand are just ok. I’d say Lulu makes better shorts in general although, the Rhone board shorts and golf shorts are probably my favorite two shorts of all time. It’s sort of funny, Rhone shorts aren’t as good as Lulu, aside from these two, which I would consider on-par with or better than similar shorts from Lulu. Beyond that, the sweatshirts, quarter zips, etc. are very good, but the selection isn’t up to that of Lulu’s. Underwear and socks are fine, but not quite as good as Lulu’s. Basically you go with Rhone gear if you want really nice men’s workout clothes, but you’d like them to be a little cheaper than Lulu.
