Cool cycling lifestyle clothes and shoes?

I am now wearing cycling shoes (spd types) most of the day since I don´t walk that much and use my bike to get around just about everywhere. I wear mostly joggers and some breathable cotton Ts cuz they look hella stylish 2gether. I feel like cycling has defined my life and who I am. Are there any affordable cycling lifestyle brands that blend performance and style?

i like Zoic apparel. It is fun, casual and practical and affordable.

Rapha is also nice nice if you have the cash $$$!

I either wear my typical Seattle slob clothes with Sidis or go full Old Woman In Lycra.

Walmart. Gym shorts and yellow "performance" t shirts .Keeps me cool for a 12 hour ride, but I suspect that isn't what you mean.

Cotton kills. Don’t wear it.

I wore a long long sleeve polyester fishing shirt (Columbia PFG) today and it looked pretty darn dapper. It was long enough to cover my diminutive male member, as I was wearing Lycra shorts because they are functional.

I love Santini. Italian-made, high quality, competitively priced and sized for various build types. Read their cycle wear fits world-class racers and mortal humans alike. I have Pactima, Rapha and a host of others but the Santini jerseys and shorts are my favorites. Santini has sales all the time on their site and really good deals can be had.

I wish that someone would come out with a white button down dress shirt, that looks exactly like you'd wear it with a business suit, but with 3 pockets in the back. The only people who would notice and understand would be cyclists.

I'm really hoping that someone who uses the phrase "hella stylish 2gether" to describe t shirts and joggers is just trolling, otherwise this is a very sad thread.

If you think that is "cool," then I have nothing to offer you.
