Are you a douche bag if you wear Gym Shark?

    Maybe look at how or why that perception developed for you.

    I tend to look at workout wear with the eye of "I like that outfit" and if there's an opportunity, I'll ask the brand and/or where they got it (if it's not obvious to me). As far as seeing someone wearing a specific brand and assuming they are "x" type of person, I don't recall that being a thing for me.

    Maybe the OP just had a couple of “bad association” incidents.

    Like if you get cut off a few times by people driving Land Rovers and you say “people who drive Land Rovers are jerks”. I mean, most prolly are, but we still shouldn’t be so judgy.

    I’ll be honest here, I don’t have any bad association with the brand. Perhaps I’m becoming more judgmental towards “trends” as I get older.

    I've never even heard of gym shark! I don't care what people wear to the gym, to each their own. I will read shirts if there's a saying or logo on it, just habit, but won't assign any meaning to it.

    Never heard of Gym Shark. It doesn't matter to me what brand people wear.

    I've never heard of Gym Shark, I hopped on the link that was above, I didn't find anything very gaudy or douche worthy. There were a few items that had large logos, but even them, they didn't look outrageous.
    I'd have no problem with someone wearing them at the gym.

    I don't care what anyone else wears at the gym, except I prefer everyone cover up their bits. If you have the $$ and want to buy expensive gear, more power to ya! If you got a ratty old tshirt, that's ok too. To each their own.

    I don't really care what people wear.

    Now people who stink like perfume or smoke on the trail, that's a different story.
