  • It is interesting to see that Lululemon says that. After all they do tend to correct their errors pretty quickly... Or do they?

     

    Something about Lululemon has changed and it has not been for the best. For one Product quality has come down, I have seen this first hand as I have shopped at Lululemon for many years. I have a pair of men's yoga pants from 2006 that are in better conditions than all my new pants and the colour has yet to fade on them (we're talking hundreds of washes). The new stuff clothes start to fade after several washes. This fading includes their hoodies too.

     

    Product design is okay but the colour/patterns are not that great. Lululemon had "special edition" hoodies for women that were actually "Special". What made those hoodies special was the difference in colours and the drawing on the back of the hoodie. That drew the attention of women and made them desire the product even more. Even men's T's used to have good drawing/portaits on them such as a silhouette of a beach for example. Those are the things that set Lululemon apart from everyone else. That and their hoodies were thick and heavy...Not thin and flimsy .

     

    For those of you who don't shop at Lululemon and invest in the company then you need to pay attention to the fashion trends in Lululemon. As a consumer I make sure that I know the product well before I invest in it.

     

    I firmly believe Lululemon will continue to grow at a good rate however they need to get the quality control back into place as it was in 2008, 2009, 2010.

     

    I don't own have any shares of Lululemon.
