I am a big fan of Under Armour shirts and shorts. I am lucky as there are a couple of outlets nearby. Picked up a shirt for $4 off the clearance rack yesterday. TJ Max or Marshall’s also has UA gear discounted as well.
Something I appreciated in my last stop as an assistant coach was that our Head Coach took good care of us clothing wise since we never were going to get paid a real hourly wage. This was a D1 school in Ohio with a nice budget so we ended up with 4-5 t-shirts, a long sleeve shirt, a pair of shorts, and pair of shoes every year in addition to stuff we could buy. Going into my 5th year as a head coach at a small high school with a much smaller budget, I make sure to get my assistants at least 3 t-shirts a year even though I wish I could do more. I have thought about doing a fundraiser that would all go to coaches gear but at this point, I am more focused on getting better helmets and shoulder pads and I think our coaches are understanding of that.

“We are on the field and in the locker room to teach our players how to win. Not just on the gridiron, but in any profession they choose. We want to impart habits that will lead them to excellence throughout their lives. Most of all, we want to teach them the value of loyalty, integrity, and teamwork. Once you know how to work with people, you can accomplish anything”- Lou Holtz
Honestly I stick to the big 3 (Nike, UA, Adidas) and just buy them at outlets. Find the deals. But it is so worth your time and money. When I stray away from those 3 I find that things fit weird and they don't last as long. I'm writing this before my workout right now wearing a nike shirt that is at least 6 years old. I have a couple that are legitimately 10 years old. Still legit. Definitely saved me $ in the long run.

I am finally to the point where I can no longer deny that I need to be in large shirts rather than medium:(. What are some of you guys opinions on clothes you love to wear to practice?
I wear nike shorts/sweats everyday... i am pretty good at finding deals online and when i see one that looks good i'll buy some.
Shirt wise i probably wear 3 a day during the season
1. Gym shirt - one of my football team t shirts... i wear it to the gym and to teach my morning weights class. 2. Dri fit shirt - i wear mostly dri fit shirts, i wear a nike or FB team shirt when i change around 9-10 Am (been my prep the last 2 years). 3. I always wear a long sleeve shirt to practice... same thing, have a few nike ones, have a few team ones...id rather wear the long sleeve than put sunscreen on my arms everyday
I have 2 kinds of shirts 1. Antioch HS ... where i coach, been here a decade... you tend to accumulate shirts ... i have shirts from multiple sports.
2. Nike... a ton from nike outlets, a ton on sale online i have worn a Medium since i was 21, i am 31 now... the Dri fit shirts hold up better than normal cotton t shirts so they last years... same thing, i accumulated a lot over the last decade, just got rid of about half of them when i moved, still have a closet full of them

The Michael Strahan brand @ JCPenny. I can't speak for many of their things but I purchased a short sleeve hoodie sweatshirt for CHEAP!!! It is one of the most comfortable things I wear.
I am a big fan of the Russell wear as well. Shorts, shirts, 3/4 tights....I don't like how they seem to put a hood on anything long sleeved, but the cloth is usually under $10 per piece. I'm a big guy and I swear by their 3x shirts. Fit me better than anything else. I feel their shorts/pants run large. I can get away with a XL in those for some reason. While you're at Walmart getting those, go over to the camping section and get an Ozark Trail mug too. Just as good as a Yeti and worth the $8 investment.
