For the bike, its pretty specific--spandex chamois shorts and a cycling jersey with pockets in the back. Its all "dry-wicking" type of polyester. I wear mostly Pearl Izumi and a few jerseys of REI house brand, but both have changed their cuts/sizing in the past year or two and now I don't seem to get a good fit in either *sigh*. When my current clothes are worn out (and most of them are getting pretty old) I don't know what I'm going to do except hope that they will have gone back to the old cuts!

For other exercise my clothes are mostly cotton. For walking I use denim shorts (regular running shorts creep up my inner thigh, I hate that) and a cotton t-shirt, often from charity walks that I did or runs that dh did. For indoor workouts I have some thin cotton-spandex knickers and "bike" shorts from Target, and the same t-shirts for walking. For run/walk shoes I always get Asics because I get the best fit in that brand.
