Would you buy Gymshark clothes if its not Gymshark but slightly cheaper?
Gymshark is growing bigger and bigger everyday now as a branded gym clothes and accessories. Their products are great IMO, they have great design and is comfortable to wear. However I think their price is ridiculous, e.g. £33 for a T-Shirt that are selling on the internet, like seriously?
But I understand most peoples buy it because it is Gymshark, but would you buy it if it isn’t gymshark and is slightly cheaper/ more or less the same materials and design.
Let me know in the comment below and thank you for your time : )

Never tried their stuff but I can offer this:
I like under armour loose gear to lift in. I'm pretty cheap and don't like spending money on myself so I'll get a new shirt or 2 for birthdays/Christmas. I also like the boxer briefs. The price point isn't where I'd buy it and wear it every day but definitely where if I see a shirt I like it's worth it for me to buy. Nike is a bit more but I won't touch their stuff cuz I can get under armour cheaper. Gym shark is more than Nike for a company I don't know. You do the math.

The only Gymshark shirts I have are the free ones I got at the Arnold. Nice shirts but when I looked into buying them after i got home the prices laughed me off their site.

My rule for buying clothes is to never buy retail. The only clothing I recently paid retail for was some mountain biking shorts, and shinguards. This was a specialty item so I spent the money
Other than that I always hit clearance racks, and sales. The same dress pants at the mall that cost 75.00 there, can be had for 15.00 at Burlington. My best deal in the last couple years was 3 dress shirts on clearance, with a coupon for .12 cents
I will pay more for good shoes, but even then I look for the best deal possible.
I use, Ebay, Burlington, Kohls, and Ross as my primary clothes buying stores. Every once in a while I'll hit Wal Mart, but I try not to shop there.
So to answer the question, no I more than likely would not buy them unless I found them on sale, and I really needed them.

I own one Gym Shark shirt. I don't think it's legit though. I ordered a $4 stringer with a superman logo from China and they sent me one with a gymshark logo on it by mistake. I would never spend what they are asking for a shirt. Ridiculous.
I did spend a bit more than usual for a shirt from Norse Fitness recently, but I'm borderline obsessed with Norse Mythology and the artwork on their shirts actually means something to me. Gymshark only seems to offer stuff with their own logo on it which is meaningless to me.

Priced High IMO.. $30.99 for a T-Shirt..
Not sure how to say it, but I'll try. The company isn't that well known. The GOAL is to get your get product out in the public to see and know, But the prices are way to high for a large part of the public. So that Hurts you. Sponsor some events and produce a product that is different then others. Not just a Logo on a piece of clothing.
Plus like above... With no Meaning behind it and just a logo slapped on Clothing.. BORNING and no purpose.
It's missing the grab factor. There is nothing to grab the customer attention to the brand.
I don't like wearing the slick UA type shirts in the gym anymore and haven't for years. They are to slick. They slide all over the Bench. The BB slides down easier on Squats, specially on Lowbar squats.
I like T-Shirts with Graphics and not just a Logo.
To me the Gym Shark logo looks generic to me.
