When I bought my first pair of lycra shorts, I wore baggy sweat shorts over them for a year. I felt a little embarrassed in them. And my first real road jersey was a large, my usual size, but it was too tight. It had advertising (mostly Mountain Dew and Subaru), but I liked the colors. Now that I have lost a little weight the lycra is the only way to go and the jersey is one of my favorites. There is a reason why sport-specific clothing is more comfortable: It's sport specific. The proper clothing HELPS you go faster and longer.
Give up. Come over to the dark side, Luke.
Truth is stranger than reality.
