What do you ladies and gentlemen wear when training?
As far as the lower half goes, I used to be a fan of lacrosse shorts for all forms of “exercising,” but now that I’m squatting and deadlifting the past several years, I find that mesh shorts of any kind are not too conducive to good squats and deadlifts. Maybe it’s just me, but the loose fit has been a distraction lately.
I can see now for the first time why the jacked gentlemen of yore wore those shorty-tennis shorts all the time with impunity. I am honestly considering purchasing singlets/rehband compression shorts/compression pants or shorts of any recommended variety to replace all my athletic shorts when training squats, at least. Does anyone have any input on this?
As far as tops, does anyone find loose or tight fitting t-shirts to be of any benefit? I know for squatting, some loose material, in my experience, tends to create some friction/surface area for the bar, but then again I know Csulli made a compelling argument before that going shirtless altogether is most conducive to benching. Again, I would appreciate any insight.
Also, somewhat related, do you guys have trouble finding decent jeans to wear? I am now forced to buy wide leg as a necessity. I suppose this is a good thing.

Too all: Please, I know this is a fairly trivial matter, but It’s what I’m curious about. I sincerely appreciate your responses, but please stick to the topic. Thanks.
