Mens Lululemon ABC pants and shorts? Which fabric? Worth the price?

Post by MCST »

The ABC pants get great reviews, and they've been mentioned on here a few times. The fabric choices are confusing though. For anyone that has mens Lululemon pants/shorts, which is the best all-around fabric, and the best for summer? It seems like the Warpstream is most common but WovenAir is lighter?

Would also like to hear how these hold up/last, and if they're worth the pretty high price?

I much prefer all-cotton for breathability, but they're just too hot for summer and don't pack well for traveling. Looking for something that is as close to cotton as possible for breathability, but also doesn't wrinkle or take up tons of room in a suitcase. Bonus if they look OK for a very casual business casual workplace.

I have a pair and don't really like them very much. Vuori Sunday Performance Joggers have held up better for me.

I have a couple of the Warpstream ABC pants and they've been great. Originally got them for travel, but I now regularly wear them for dinners out. So comfortable and they've held up fine for two years.

My son worked for Lululemon for several years, the words below are his":
"Warpstreme (the tried and true classic) is the only way to go. Sweat wicking, four way stretch, wrinkle resistant, and all around awesome."

I was "not sold'" on the value of Lululemon's products until he gave me a pair of pants as a gift. I loved them so much, I bought two more pairs (thankfully, I did get the employee discount).

Warpstream as others have said

Obviously overpriced, but they’re definitely nice, versatile pants. Would recommend.

Wear them to work, golf, going out to eat, etc

Still use traditional slacks for nicer business casual occasions.

Yes, the ABC warpstreme pants are worth the hype. They're light, comfy and look nice. I've heard they're a standard part of the Wall St uniform so they definitely fit in a biz casual office.

The ABC pants have been popular long enough that now every brand makes their own version. If budget is a concern, check out Target's 5 pocket golf pant or Costco's 5 pocket tech pant.

edit: another budget option is to order a discounted pair from Lulu's returns site. https://likenew.lululemon.com/
