I’ll never buy 2XU clothing again

Recommended Posts

Can just see some hipster in Rapha gear wondering who would be stupid enough to spend $500 on Kanye bike shorts.

I've never liked the stuff as it just didn't fit my .... unique .... body! Definitely wouldn't buy it now!

I have a pair of their socks. I think that is the correct amount to own.

The whole clothing/ activewear/ tri wear space is very interesting. I’d like to see Gruen have a take on it. 

There seems to be very little comment about garment quality or brand heritage or anything of substance etc it really just seems to be a triumph of marketing above anything else.

I could tell you what I think but I've never had a thread pulled (on here that is, diff story with some "active wear" both literally and metaphorically).

Great kit, and you get a discount for being a Tranny.

Still wearing stuff from 2007.  

I saw a "first photo" on Facebook the other day which was inexplicably myself and my good friend with our pants out. I still have those pants. 14 years later.

I use Orca (wetsuits and bathers), Pearl Izumi (cycling, running) and De Soto (Tri) .... it's excellent quality, all reasonably priced and lasts. I  still have a tri suit that I bought in 2003.

The rest is just marketing and fads. There is a well-known brand of poor quality over here where it is more about the "lifestyle" than the output!

I've still got a pristine Tinley Trisuit from 1991. Beat that. Tinley performance wear was where it was all at ......until reebok bought him out. Best decision he ever made.

I've been using Fusion for a few years, good quality and John's customer service is second to none.

I have one of those as well and the quality was awesome (it's a little too "top-shelf" these days). I also have the Tinley smugglers and one of the crop-top singlets Welchy wore in Kona back in 92 (I think) that gets wheeled out for Tri Club piss-ups with a retro theme.

Doesn't quite fit the same anymore!

An excerpt from an old post on slowtwitch referencing about 1989 

Oh man how the times have changed. I remember when Scott Tinley showed up at Gulf Coast in his Tinley Tri Suit and people snickered and shook their heads.

Is Kanye West a rapper? I thought he was an actor :lol: and a bad one sounding more like an R&B artist. 

 

This is a major credibility loss for 2XU, straight to Target!
