Domain Hoodie

Just a note: These were originally priced at $128/$138 (for stripes) and then were later reduced to $108/$118 which is way more reasonable. The only thing I do not like is the drawstrings, I just find the look tacky. I am also not a huge fan of the huge pocket on the right side, wish it was more subtle like the Pacific Beach chest pocket.
Shown in Heathered Cobalt

Why We Made This?
  • *The master of all hoodies
  • *Cotton fleece is thick, warm, durable, and preshrunk for hassle-free laundering
  • *Zipper garage prevents chin chaffing
  • *Stretch rib side panels allow for movement
  • *Large deep hood and high collar for extra warmth
  • *Chest pocket and sleeve pocket for electronics
  • *No bounce drawcord
  • *Secure hand pockets

I love the Black Skeletonbone/Wren Print (seen below). Reminds me of the inside of the Black Swan Gratitude Wrap.

Photos of the Latest

Game On Boxer Brief
Colours: Dark Slate, Rugged Blue, Houndstooth (all shown)
Elevation Toque
Colours: Heathered Grey (shown), and Black
Cypress Run Pullover
Colours: Dark Slate Heathered Monument Itty Bitty Stripe (shown)

West Coast Hoodie

Update: Personal Opinion
-zipper is off to the side, awkward fit (not a fan, looks weird when only half zipped up)
-fitting compared to the Pacific Beach Hoodie is different especially around the shoulders as well as the body (I almost need to size down but small is the smallest)
-has no zipper pull
-the front seams looks weird and t00 busy for me

The first two images show the special edition which carries at $10 premium ($118 vs $108).

This photo of the West Coast Hoodie in Plum is not the best photo, and you will understand why I am not a fan at all. (Bring back the Pacific Beach Hoodie)

Welcome New Readers

I just wanted to say a "Hello" to everyone out there and welcome to Lulumen. I wanted to create this blog to devote attention to the mens line at Lululemon Athletica which is often forgotten about. I guess this blog is more of a hobby for me, but I honestly enjoy it, and helps everyone out there who has no idea a mens line even exists.

Just a bit about myself...

I am currently attending the University of Waterloo in my second year studying Geography and Environmental Management. I am unsure about what to do after I am finished school, still working on that. I am 20 years old and my hometown is London Ontario. Ever since the Lululemon opened at Masonville Place, I have been hooked and almost addicted to everything related to Lululemon. I am also well known at that store and also apparently very well known at the GEC because of my involvement with the Facebook Page and Twitter world.

Some other hobbies and interested of mine include everything Apple related. Everything I do in life can somehow be related back to Apple and Im a huge fan of their products. I am also usually always asked for Apple help/support when anyone needs it whether its on Facebook or from family.

I am about 5'10 and 135 pounds currently and wear size small in Lululemon (unless otherwise posted). While I do maintain an active lifestyle, working out is not a big part of my life currently but I'm sure that will change as I turn older and my metabolism disappears.

You can look forward to the latest items from the mens line at Lululemon and the occasional women's related items if I can relate it back to mens. You will see fit reviews (occasionally, I do not live near a store currently, but I do visit stores frequently) as well as tons of information in regards to everything Lululemon and my collection that keeps growing.

I am still learning this website and getting used to blogging, so bare with me while all the kinks and tricks are worked out. If you have any comments or questions, feel free to comment or send me a message ( and Ill try and get back to you.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the blog and keep checking back!

New Colour: Similar to Black Swan

I love this colour, its very similar to black swan (women's colour) and I cannot wait for more items in this colour. It is called "black plum" and was first featured on the new mens Binary Crew.

Photo colour code is: black plum microstripe/heathered dark slate

New Mens Colour: Rugged Blue

New Blue! It is called "Rugged Blue". So far no items have been released in store, but Lululemon has uploaded a picture of the West Coast Hoodie of this new blue online, but yet they still pretend these items do not exist (*cough Paris Pink colour cough* on the women's line).

Mens Winter Jacket: Last Year Elevation Jacket

Last year, Lululemon produced this jacket called the elevation jacket for the retail price of $299 at first. It was reduced down early December for the loot price of $99 online. Many people took advantage of this amazing deal. I love this jacket it kept me very toasty last winter here in Southern Ontario and had a great length/fit for me. But shortly after wearing this jacket, many people noticed pilling issues on the arm/armpits where the inside filling would come out. After a few washes this problem was not a huge problem for me, but they did offer anyone who wanted a refund, a store credit. Now I never wanted this credit because I loved the jacket and for the price, It wasn't a bad deal until more problems have occurred (see next photos). I would love to return this jacket but where would I get a Lululemon winter coat for $99, this years will be $299 and will be out sometime late this month or early next. Maybe there is a repair option for the jacket?

Live Chat

As many of you have already noticed, Lululemon has launched live chat. You really can talk about anything on their chat service. Ive had some conversations about the weather, living in vancouver or our favourite stores. Go ahead and try it out!
