Ok so I figured I would post this on here. I have 2 daughters in the only male in the house. So anyways my kids are obsessed with lululemon leggings. We went to an outlet mall let them buy some that were on sale for a good junk off. They are normally $100 they were like 75 percent off. Anyways I want to know if anybody else knows much about this company? I googled them and they donated some money to the right side. Anybody else have wife's or daughters obsessed with them?
 
Wife loves em. I have their shorts and sweats and a couple shirts great work out gear. High quality it seems lasts along time. My sweats are about 4 years old no holes no pilling.
 
It is supposed to be good stuff. I don't have any but my wife loves the pants and other clothes. A lot of guys I workout with like them and say they are super comfortable but call me what you want I think they are woman's clothes…but that's just me. Yes they do make mens clothes but I just not into the skinny jeans/pants they make

Wife and daughter love them. Don't know about their political views. My wife and daughter also like Athleta. :rolleyes:
 
Wife has a few tops she was given, they kinda were the most successful at making gym gear look cute (wife's take on it anyway). It a puzzle buying things and supporting companies, heck I'm not proud of any of carhartts recent stances but I've not found an alternative to the bibs I'm sitting in... wife loves Patagonia but they probably earn top spot in anti just about everything I am and stand for.

Gave up marmot last year, couldn't order a jacket without clicking through pop ups contrary to my core beliefs. Outdoor gear is a tough one it's about as anti most of us posting on a hunting page as Hollywood or coffee shops.

Kudos to you for trying. No change happens if we don't search it out and try and vote with our dollar.
 
Don't know about their political beliefs. Originally a Canadian company. Founder was kind of out there and was kicked out by the board after saying their clothes weren't meant for fat people. There was a controversy surrounding a board member named Rhoda Pitcher a few years ago that lead to what was maybe the funniest couple weeks of business news in history as all the major outlets (and company) tried to figure out if she was real or if the company was ****ing away money to a make believe person.

They first got famous for making yoga pants that were see through. I think the founder said the pants were only see through if they were worn by ladies who shouldn't be wearing yoga pants (I.e. large women).
 
Lots of girls at the gym wearing Lulu and Born Primitive. No idea on Lulus politics but the owner/founder of Born Primitive was on a Kifaru podcast with Aron Snyder and they are definitely pro hunting.
 
Canadian corporation. Headquartered in BC. Wife likes them a lot. We were in BC 5 years ago and she visited their flagship store. Stuffs not cheap and is well made. It's like the Kuiu of Gym clothes and yoga pants.
 
They are listed on 2ndvote.com. 2nd Vote researches how companies use their profits and ranks companies based on several measures. Your first vote is in the ballot box and your second vote is with your wallet. 2nd Vote is a conservative watchdog for corporate activism. Lulemon gets a 2.33 score, and here are their scores per category.
  • 1.00 - Life (as in right to life)
  • 2.55 - Basic Freedoms
  • 3.00 - 2nd Amendment
  • 5.00 - Civil-Safe Society
  • 3.90 - Education
  • 2.55 - Environment
 
2nd vote.... ranks rei in the mid 3s.... looses a bit of credibility. Last time I darkend the door of a rei it had posters all over the store saying what they stood for.... basically against everything the 2nd claims to be for...

Dunno if they have a very good system.

So - 2.33 out of 5.00 or 10.00 ? 😂
They're either pretty good or real bad !
 
They make awesome men's pants and shorts. Probably some of the most comfortable stretch materials available. They do make some shirts and stuff for men but the ABC line of pants is really better than anything I have worn.
 
I have three daughters in skating and gymnastics. My girls love the stuff. Not sure if it's because it's good or because it's popular.
