Athletic shorts/shirts recommendations?

I want to buy some new athletic shorts/shirts for the few and far between times that I work out.

Based on the few and far between notion, I can't really justify paying Lululemon prices (88 dollars for shorts? Go fuck yourself).

Any one got recommendations outside the normal nike/adidas types?

I workout everyday and swear by Gymshark shorts. They have a bunch of different styles, but my favorite are the Arrival 5" inseam zip up shorts at just $20. I'm 5ft6 with big tree trunks for quads so I can get away with showing a little more thigh #FreeTheThigh.

I kid you not I bought 1 pair and a couple of days later bought 3 more (2 more in black, 1 in red for when I wanna look like I'm straight out of Baywatch). I thought the zippers would be the worst thing ever, but they've actually become essential so I don't lose my airpods or something when I sit down. Game changer. Buy them and don't look back.

I picked up a bunch of Hill City stuff when they were going out of business, apparently they've been absorbed in the BR Sport line. Still a bit pricey, but a step down from Lululemon - not in quality though at least.

If you're looking for a cheap option, I've liked the Old Navy sports line (stuff has held up really well) along with MyProtein (similar to Gym Shark I would think, but don't have experience with them. They also have huge sales all the time - like 50/60% off).

Check out Facebook marketplace/poshmark deals. I but my lulu shorts for $10-$15. Just look for sellers with lots of reviews.

Birddogs and Ten Thousand. I have a ton of Nike, Lulu, UA but like those a little better. Birddogs are so versatile you can wear them working out, lounging or just out and I believe their founders came from lulu.
