co-signed. you think i do Janda sit ups for my health?

Gym (weight training, etc.) = shorts & a shirt. not trying to impress anyone. the heavy weights, explosive power and impeccable technique take care of that :lol:
Hill Sprints = whatever is conducive to the weather. prefer shorts.
Hockey (Ice) = polypro long pants and polypro long shirt under my gear
Hockey (Dek/Roller) = short sleeve polypro shirt under my gear.
Are you doing enough to be the best?

Just a dobok and a belt for taekwondo.

On the rare occasion I run or go to the gym it's new balance trainers with black trousers and a random baggy tshirt or vest.

I wear the stinkiest most comfortable and torn up clothes I can find. But since I train on my own, I think I'm super ethical anyways :P
Next time, I'll spend the money on drugs instead.

I'm getting a worrying impression of there being a lot of scruffy un-stylish Vegans out there :cry:
Don't forget we're 'ambassadors' . Representatives of our creed!

more brand-name athletic gear than i care to admit
but lots of my training is at home where i am often in the ubiquitous wife-beater
which is also my pajamas, my go to the store clothes, and pretty much everything other than work attire.

I have so much cycling clothes I don't know where to start...

yesterday evening MTB ride, sunny and about 25 degrees, I wore (top-bottom):
- Bell Sweep R helmet
- Red Assos cycling cap
- Rudy Project Rydon glasses
- Club jersey and bib shorts (Parentini)
- Santini under shirt
- Pearl Izumi Elite MTB Glove
- Red Pearl Izumi cycling socks
- Sidi Dragon 2 Carbon SRS shoes

If I may say it myself I looked very stylish, which everyone knows is key when on a bike 8)
--- non-racers. the emptiness of those lives shocks me ---

Same here. I do a lot of training on my own, and within ten minutes of starting training my clothes are to smelly to be wearable. So I often get stuff out of the wash to wear. Stinky bastard, don't care. And if my nose runs while I'm running, well, it's getting washed anyway. No clothes (Ok then, veyr few) are ethical, there's animal testing of dyes, shit labour conditions, and energy/other resources used, so I wear old clothes until they fall apart (or the wife bins them when I'm not looking).

Training at home I'll do wearing as little as possible, although I get told to put shorts on if the curtains are open.

Aside from that, I wear me Vegan Runners vest if I think I'm going to have a good run. And I should get a Vegan Fitness T Shirt.

Bit surprised nobodies mentioned Bamboo or Hemp yet.(Me included :? )

These are the alternative fabrics said to be the best in envirionmental terms. Both use far less pesticides. Hemp and Bamboo are said to have properties that naturally fight off threats that cotton cannot(when being cultivated) Organic Cotton is said to use 25% less chemicals than conventional cotton.

I have jeans,t-shirts and tops in Hemp and t-shirts in Bamboo- leisure wear.
Bamboo is a especially soft and stylish fabric.-Bit too good for training in I suppose.
But will be using some of my hemp tees in future.

I've never come across bamboo as a fabric. What's it like?

Not to dissimilar from a quality cotton. But much softer and seems to be more stylish. People have commented on how good the t-shirts were that I had. Got mine from Canada a couple of years ago. Now being sold in shops in the Uk. Defnatley recommend it.
I've found hemp to be as not hard wearing and prone to shrinkage. Bamboo still good after 2 years.
