I recently picked up some Nike technical pants for $9 a shot at their outlet store.

Mountain climbing gear seems to be an equivalent.

Knog has some nice shorts https://www.knogusa.com/index.html?ta...tml&lang=en-us

FYI the Chrome wool jerseys are cut for VERY SKINNY PEOPLE, even the XL. Their knicker pants are top notch though even for big folk.

Check www.toeclip.com for their selection of Endura clothes. I have the Endura Humvee 3/4 knickers and they're awesome.

Just wear whatever you want, but with a relaxed attitude?

Target has microfiber shirts that work great for cycling - as comfy as any jersey I've had. Cheap - <$15. Just no back pockets or pouches.
