So the men's version of Fabletics works exactly the same as the women's version, which Whitney recently blogged about. I signed up, chose my workout outfit, and waited. Pouch comes twice a week and they were charging a ridiculous fee to ship APO/DPO for some reason. They had a lot of options, and as someone who usually prefers an old t-shirt and a pair of shorts to work out in, it was easy to find something I liked. I don't really like bright colors and like simple designs. So I chose one shirt and one pair of shorts for my initial Fabletics gear.
The pants were basic red and gray. They came with an inner shell, sort of like a bathing suit but not made of mesh. What I did like was that the pockets had zippers so I could feel a little more secure if I'm running down the streets or walking to the store as its getting dark.
I don't have much else to say about the t-shirt. It's basic gray with some black stitching. The shirt was comfortable and felt high quality.
Both items together cost $25 as my initial offer for joining the VIP service. For that price, I don't think even Target would beat it. I'm curious to see how it compares to my next offer.
One major caveat to this review: I have not worn these clothes through an actual workout yet or ran them through the washing machine. Damn viral infection. We'll see how they hold up.
But since I don't have a home gym yet (I'm looking at you StrengthCrate), I have to make do with the equipment I have. Funny how it feels like it gets a little heavier every week.
Overall, out of 10, I give Fabletics an 8 on quality pending workouts and washings, 5 on cost (dinged for the APO/DPO penalty), 7 on appropriate for me and 4 on fun (Sorry, I don't really find clothes fun).
