This was a hard topic for me. I work in marketing so know that while word of mouth is the best publicity brands could have, I feel that some brands go over the top. It drives me nuts to see the same brands, pop up at the same time all over social media. Kudos to the marketing teams for doing their job, but still….
But if I was forced to choose, I would definitely choose an apparel brand, and it would be a complete toss up between Athleta or Nike, which make up at least 60% of my (running) wardrobe.
Athleta pants and jackets : I always find cuts which are flattering on my short frame and I find the quality excellent.
Nike tops : I wear them over and over and have several. I love the thumb holes of the long sleeved shirts, and they are not too tight around my middle where I tend to be a bit thick.
Athleta top with Nike pants :
I have two of these tops because there is a rubberish band around the bottom which prevents the top from riding up.
I wear Athleta in my daily life. This is one of my favorite tops. The picture was taken spectating the 2015 Paris marathon.
And this black one I have worn and worn and worn. Once again, it is fitted without being too tight.
Same black top with Athleta vest :
So if Nike or Athleta want me to try out all their new models, I would be happy to !
