No one in tech has gone into an office here in forever. * Archived Message

...but I'm sure people in the offices wore athleisure. Infact, I definitely saw people in the accounting group in yoga gear.
I don't work South of Market.
I don't live in the Outer Richmond 2 blocks from Golden Gate Park...(how long ago and for how long was that?)
I also don't fly into SF to eat at fancy restaurants on my way to expensive 3 day festivals in Napa.
So, tell me about my reality again?
worked south of market, and I was in the city 10 days ago. People wear athleisure. I bet they even wear athleisure at your brewery.
And I mean...I do spend like 95% of my non-work related time west of Sunset...because I live here...and I don't see a shitload of dudes wearing athleisure.
As far as my "reality being a complete fabrication"...I mean, I'm the one who actually lives here right? When did you move away? You lived in...Nob Hill, Pacifica and...checks list...Walnut Creek?
I'll trust my view of my reality.
It's just not the blue collar city you seem to think that it is. Unless you spend all of your time either in the outer sunset, or at work, and never go anywhere else in the Bay Area, your reality is a complete fabrication.
...and I don't live in the sticks. Maybe I just don't recognize it.
But I see mostly jeans or logo tshirts with a hoodie or vest of some sort.
I'd bet I see a lot more Carhartt than Lululemon...which is another point of contention. If you have stiff Carhartt gear, you don't do Carhartt stuff.
you either live in the sticks or you're not paying attention. Coincidentally, lulu does well in markets like Pittsburgh and Detroit because it's a Canadian brand and has a high correlation of men's sales in places where hockey is popular.
...but I feel like all tshirts that come from an active apparel brand have a strange, activewear, sheen or look to them.
Not a basic cotton t...which is probably why they're 58 dollars to start with.
I don't prefer the blended fabric look.
my only beef with Old Navy (I used to work there and still buy a lot of clothes from there) is that the collar is shot like the third time you wear the shirt.
just acknowledging that you get what you pay for. Old Navy shirts are $8 for a reason.
than a cheaper one? Buy a lulumon t shirt and an Old Navy tshirt and let me know after two years which one looks better.
so the replacement cost is fine.
