    Men of TSR, where do you buy your tracksuit bottoms? I'd like something that looks decent, has some bagginess, comfortable obviously. Will buy 4-5 pairs in black and grey colours and wear them instead of jeans everyday.

    Girls, you like trackies?

    Any sports store should sell them. Why are you opting only for trackies?

    I tried JD sports and Sports Direct but didn't think the ones they had were acceptable for everyday clothing.

    I'm starting to take lifting seriously and my body is changing everyday. None of my jeans fit now and I spent ridiculous amount of money on them so I'm gonna forget about fashion for a few years and just wear trackies and a simple t-shirt every day.

    That and they're so comfortable that I hate wearing anything else now since I started wearing them last week. Going to Zara after exams to stock up on t shirts like the ones below in a few different coulours, get some high tops, a few trackies and that's it for clothes for a while.

    Why have you suddenly decided to take such extreme measures? Why do you only want to wear trackies?

    They don't fit me anymore bro. I have some Diesel and G Star jeans bought a few months ago for £80 ea and they don't fit me. I tried wearing a belt with them but it just makes me stupid because the belt scrambles them up from the top. I'd buy some new ones but I know in a month they won't fit me either because my body's changing so much.

    The shop I'm dropping it off to is run by my former teacher and they resell all the donated products and spend 100% of the money towards sending mosquito nets to Africa so I'm not even that mad about the money wasted.

    I'm not trying to persuade against it, but unfortunately trackies carry stereotypes such as "chav". If that genuinely doesn't bother you at all, that's good

    Just buy some plain black/navy/grey Nike ones with the tick above the pocket? Or opt for the Canterbury's that everyone seems to consider formalwear in a lecture theatre.

    Are you sure you just want tracksuit bottoms? What about jogging bottoms and track shorts? Also some cargo pants have expandable waists?
