Photo - Black Wee Stripe In Stride, New Response and Surge Pants for Men

I neglected to post this yesterday. There is a new In Stride out in Black Wee Stripe. Do you find that the In Stride runs larger than the Stride jackets? I didn't think they did but my sister tried on an In Stride in a two and it was swimming on her compared to the Stride Jacket she already owns in the same size. It could have just been the one she tried on - silver spoon pique - but I wondered if any of you know.


The Endless Circle Scarf is pretty but still pricey at $68.


The black Full Expression Tee and Endless Scarf.

The Full Expression tee is kind of cute in this photo. It looks billowy enough that you could use it as a maternity top.



I love the denim Deep Indigo Wunder Unders but I don't think they are in the US - has anyone spotted them at their store?



New Response shorts in Heathered Soot. The zipper pocket has been relocated upwards.




New Surge pant for men. I saw these in the store yesterday. They are made of Swift material, the same material as Response shorts, and are super lightweight.

There is also a new Surge short. They look pretty short. I'll have to tell my husband about these. He might like them for running.




 New Surge jacket for the men made out of swift. I am a sucker for houndstooth.

I wish they would make the Swift's in long. My man won't wear anything above the knee. But all of lulu's longer shorts are heavy luon or similar with liners. He just wants a long light short. Maybe there's something I missed? Any suggestions? Anything even slightly above the knee is out. Thank you!

Sorry to correct my above post, I meant Surge, not Swift.

I think the Core short is longer than the Response but I see it still hits above the knee on the web model. I don't know of any longer shorts. I suggest he look on ebay for older styles and see if anything pops up. My husband is not very tall so the response work well for him.

my husband is 6'3" and they don't make anything that he will wear either:( They should make a nice basic basketball style longer short for men!

To answer your question about the In Stride and Stride jackets. I love them both. I order one size smaller than my usual size in both jackets, but still the Stride is slighter bigger than the In Stride.

Is the men's jacket checkered or houndstooth(like you mentioned)? Not trying to be snarky, but I can't tell if it's houndstooth or my computer is off.

I love the endless scarf, but $68 is CRAZY for a scarf. C-R-A-Z-Y.

Hi, on a separate topic, I see Groove Shorts and Reverse Groove Shorts on the website--can anyone tell me what the difference is between the two shorts? Thanks!

Is the black wee stripe in stride regular material, brushed or pique? And is it in Canada? Thanks!

I called GEC this morning because I really wanted the denim wonder unders - they are slated for delivery the US - in particular SoCal stores soon. They didn't have an exact date..but they are coming. Cool! Regarding the In Stride Jackets - I always size down one from my normal jacket size.

You should try the "light as air short *bonded seams" very light weight and very similar material to the surge short with the longer length.

I don't know how it compares to the Stride, but the In Stride jacket definitely runs big. I normally wear a 4 in Lulu tops, and sometimes a 2 in jackets, but the size 2 In Stride I tried on last week was huge on me. I'm not very curvy, but I'm tall and there are certainly smaller people out there than me.

I just snagged a pair of the denim WU's on eBay. I couldn't wait for them to be released here in the US. I hope they fit, I know I usually need to size up in denim ( making me an 8 instead of a 6) but my size 8 denim WU pants were feeling big I the waist/ hips this week when I taught in them.
( fingers crossed the 6's will fit)

That mens houndstooth jacket is super cute!

I can't wait to see Aquamarine in person. I ordered the CRB, which should arrive soon. On my computer it looks very much like a paler Aruba, but I am hoping it is more blue. On another note, just received my first No Limit Tank and I love it! I don't know why I waited so long to try this one. Usually, the looser tanks don't flatter my smaller frame, but this does. It seems like it would work with so many body types. Now I am just hoping they bring out more colors--aquamarine would be great! I hope they keep this around and that the new v-neck style does not replace it!

OT~Has anybody else noticed that on the latest online items (I ordered five items on last Tuesday), there are no price points on the tags of the merchandise? I wonder what is it's significance? Does it means that the prices are more volatile, as in different prices for different areas/zone? Or it is to facilitate easier price changes for lulu? (I'm just being paranoid...) Any thoughts?

I have the in stride and it seems to run 1 size larger than my stride jacket

Thank you LLA and Eric for the tips on the shorts!

The silver spoon piqué and black piqué in strides were cut huge for some strange reason. I am a 4 or 6 in jackets and the 2 was even big/weird on me!

Try the down dog pants, they are a 'capri for guys'...they are wonderfull. They were discontinued, but I picked up a pair of the newest version last week that hit my local store. I use them for all my outdoor activities...for yoga I actually wear the wommens still capri, same I idea, just more of a snug fit and they don't slide down.
