Oh, cute!

BTW, is there any word yet if it is safe to buy a Stride or are they still falling apart? So annoying! I really want one, but not if it is going to fray immediately.

I bought the pique energize pant and I really really love them. I can totally see myself getting the grooves and the define in pique. What a great feeling fabric!

I also bought the pique energize pants and love the fabric. I've never been much of a define or groove person, but I might have to give these a try just for the fabric.

The roses print Wunder Under Crops are on the Bridgeport page. I must say it looks horrible as a pants.

Cute, I think its time to expand my Define collection, but I may buy a another colour. Luluaddict, can I ask you about the static charcoal still pants? I was thinking of getting a pair, but I remember something was wrong with the quality? Or maybe I am not remembering correctly?

I wonder what happened to all the Push Ur Limits tanks on the website? They only have the older static ones from a few months ago. I was going to buy the blue multi stripe one, which had a full stock 2 days ago, and now all of them are gone.

@Marci - not Luluaddict, but I have a pair of Charcoal stills and they are pilling on the rear and in the crotch. I haven't worn them heavily and have only had them a month or so. I'm not too disappointed since I got them on markdown at my local store for a steal, but if I'd paid full price I'd be more distraught. The fabric doesn't really show the pills, but if you run your hand across the fabric you definitely feel them. It bothers me that it's pilling at my bottom, beacause while I get the pilling from abrasion in the crotch area, how is one supposed to avoid pilling on the rear of the pants? Never sit down? I don't even exercise in these pants, I mostly wear them as street wear.

i bought the stride in the wish blue poncho stripe and i was weary about buying one but i have washed mine and worn it many times and have not experienced any problems. i think all the ones that have a special dye process (heathered style) are the ones fraying and falling apart. i took a chance with mine and am very happy with it...it is an awesome jacket!

My teal zeal stride frayed all along the cuffs, i want another but i think ill wait a while and see if theres any different reviews that pop up as its the 5th one i had to return.

I also wasn't going to buy a Stride jacket because of the fraying issues on the sleeves but when the wish blue/ poncho stripe one came out, I couldn't resist! I've been very happy with it so far, and even though I've worn it pretty much constantly since I got it, there has been no fraying issues. I called the GEC before I bought it and the guy I spoke with said that the design was slightly different (though it looks exactly the same to me!) and he recommended leaving the zippers on the pockets closed to prevent the stitching on the sleeve from hitching on the them.

@ Marci - My static charcoal Still pants have pilled really badly between the thighs - worse than any other lulu pants I own. The rear is ok, though. I only use them as around town pants and not for workouts. I haven't brought them in because I like them a lot and only I know the pilling is there.

@anon 4:24 - Weird about the Push UR Limits. Maybe they are going to mark some down. If you want a color that is not there, I'd give the GEC a call. There is no way all those colors suddenly sold out.

What store had the picture of the pique define? US or Canadian?

Marci said...

I have the haze/coal Stride, I've worn it many times, and have had no issues with seam fraying. What a relief.
