    Hi John,

    Thanks for asking for our input. Of course you do realize that you're going to get a very opinionated take on running apparel if you ask a person who does professional fashion consulting! :) Just warning you before you read what's to come. :)

    Tops
    - Fitted (vs. tight!) would be a better description. ;-) I dislike baggy clothes; my attitude is that if you're going to work hard enough to get your bod into shape, then you should feel good about wearing clothes that flatter it. There's no sense in hiding behind one's clothing by wearing baggy outfits, which usually only makes people look larger than they really are, anyhow!
    - "Technical" fabric please!
    - white tank if summer & black long-sleeved if winter :)
    - Centered, larger logo.

    Pants/Shorts
    - Loose-fitting but not baggy
    - running pants? (Hate shorts! They do hideous, unflattering things to most ladies' legs. ;-) )
    - "Technical" fabric
    - Black (Never white! Again, don't want to draw unnecessary attention to the badunkadunk. ;-) )
    - No logo/writing on the tush! There are many women are self-conscious about this area of their body & so generally don't like writing there, because it'd draw attention to this area. :) Also, the "writing on the tush" thing is a little bit too Paris Hilton/Britney Spears/"Juicy Couture" sweatsuit-ish. ;-) Most grown women like looking like grown women, not teenagers. :)

    Hope you've found these comments to be helpful. :)

    Good luck with your new apparel line!

    Awesome! I can't wait to sport some sweet HellaSound gear!

    Tops
    Tight or loose?
    Tighter is better than loose, because having a ton of bunchy fabric while moving around is a friggin' drag. But, it's got to be fitted enough to not look like I'm wearing a trash bag. I still want to look chic. Final answer: fitted and shapely but not hoochified.

    "Technical" fabric or cotton?
    Tech! Though an after-sport cotton t-shirt might be a nice addition, too. But, only tech for activities.

    Black or white?
    I wear both. Black looks badass-er, but I wear more white to keep cooler and (ok, I'll admit it!) I feel like I look tanner in white and paler in black.

    Long-sleeved, short, or tank?
    I love tank tops, but buy all three and usually layer long and short-sleeved shirts all winter and fall. Long-sleeves have to not be billowy though, see comment above about bunchy fabric. And the trick it to get a shirt than is long not too wide in the trunk (narrower torso fabric versus a wider, looser cut of shirt) Because if the torso part of the shirt is too short, then by the time the shirt is long enough, the arms look like a pirate shirt or makes me feel like a friggin' bat. And that's just goofy.

    Centered, larger logo or smaller logo placed over one hoot?
    I buy both, probably more one-hoot than full-logo. I'm seeing logos lately centered on the upper back below the neck, which is cool, too.

    Pants/Shorts
    Loose-fitting or tights?
    Tights

    Shorts, running shorts or pants?
    running shorts with a slimmer (not bunchy or balloon-y) cut

    "Technical" fabric or cotton?
    Tech fabric.

    Black or white?
    Black

    Logo/writing on the ass, or no?
    Logo on the hip or quad is really cool-looking to me, but not the ass.

    Thanks for asking!
