Why do those people on their fancy bicycles have to dress like aliens from an underfunded planet?
The reason for the spandex pants is that you don't, REALLY don't want extra layers of seams crawling up you ass during long bike rides. The bike pants are padded in the right places, fit well and are comfortable for the rider. The shirts are cut to fit correctly for riding position, again eliminating chaffing and are very breathable.
Both are designed for comfort for the rider, not for viewing by folks on the street.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
