    Continuing Under Armour's partnership with Marvel (and understanding that men get buff want to look like superheroes), Under Armour has just released a new line based on Avengers Age of Ultron.

    I gotta say, I'm impressed. I'm working on a fairly lazy Cap costume, and that compression shirt looks the business. I've ordered one, not sure of the sizing purely because I've never bought anything from Under Armour before. Hell, even out of cosplay season they're some pretty cool shirts to wear, if only I had the body confidence/muscles to walk around in spandex.

    What do you guys think?

    These are great, bordering on hilarious! The Quicksilver shirt isn't up on their website yet, tho-that's the one I'd be interested in.

    I was looking at theses earlier today. I think they look pretty cool, but I'm disappointed that they only have Black Widow for us females... And that it's more expensive than the Men's shirts. I call shenanigans!

    Yes and no. The somewhat cheesy shirts that look like Iron Man armor, Captain America's suit, etc. are cheaper than the Black Widow. However, the shirt's inspired by the heroes, which is the category the Black Widow belongs to, are actually more expensive ($79.99 for men's shirts).

    Unfortunately for you, the only other option in this line would be a Scarlet Witch top and I don't think she has as much of a distinct look as Black Widow since she isn't a fully fledged Avenger, she's more of a powered civilian, but you're right it is a bit unfair that the women are paying more for essentially less material.

    Personally I'd love a Quicksilver compression top, I have a feeling he is going to be a cool character, plus Aaron Taylor-Johnson is a fellow Brit, no disrespect to our American cousins.

    They are going to restock, right? This wasn't a one time thing?

    image.jpg Cap shirt arrived today. The printing does look a little amateur-ish when I opened it, but it looks better worn. It looks like it'll work as a costume piece, not sure I have the confidence to wear it outside as regular clothing though.

    I hope so! But according to the Under Armour Facebook page, it doesn't seem like they're going to re-stock. I'm willing to be ripped off on eBay at this point for a Quicksilver one.

    I've been getting the "no plans to restock" for a while, but asking them about a second run of the shirts got a "we're exploring our options."

    I'm going assume it's probably due to how may people have been asking the question since the movie opened.

    I wouldn't mind the Cap and Stark ones. I don't really need one, but I've got the IM3 Falke shirt and the charcoal grey Gung Fu Scratch t-shirt, so the completist factor has kicked in.

    I'm a frequent wearer of Under Armour, so they are nothing new to me. I have loads of them in different colours in my wardrobe and I wear them almost everyday when I'm out either as a base layer or just on its own. Usually on its own when I go for my runs. Love the material used and they're very comfortable, I stand by them!

    Their Age of Ultron line looks really good and I bought the Capt America suit long with the seamless Iron Man and Capt America shirt... These were available at my local Under Armour store here in Singapore. The seamless Capt and Iron Man ones is just brilliantly made with great textured details! Some subtle differences from the one worn in the movie, but the differences are not as obvious as the Quicksilver one which I eventually gave it a pass.

    I passed on the Quicksilver one because its just not screen accurate. Way too much grey going around. It looks good as a standalone but for something that is expensive and licensed by Marvel and is supposedly based on the one from the movie, I would expect it to be film accurate... Looks nothing like the one worn in the movie. Pretty disappointed..

    I ordered it online from a member here on the RPF in France. Check out the Project Runs form. I know Tony Stark shirts are sold out, but QS and Cap are still in stock.

    Mind showing us a picture of you in the Cap seamless shirt? Interested in how it actually looks on somebody.

    There you go...

    Captain America seamless compression. The sleeves on this one needs to be shorter imo. But it still looks really cool. Feels good too. Gonna wear this later for my run just to test it out.
    [​IMG]

    Iron Man seamless compression. This one is just perfect.
    [​IMG]

    And last but not least, Quicksilver. Yeah, its not screen accurate. But it looks good as a standalone and seeing as I was eligible for 10% off at my local Under Armour store, I couldn't resist it, so I caved in ;)

    I wear size XL for all my compression wear from Under Armour. I haven't exactly measured myself so can't say for sure, but my height is 1.72m and I weigh abt 180lbs. I usually wear a size M for ordinary cotton tees/polo. Compression being tighter and closer to the skin, its recommended to get a size thats twice the size of your average tee.

    I hear ya... I don't really mind the lack of thumbholes, it's just that they could've at least gotten the colors right. Adding some touches of blue would make a world of difference. It does look good the way it is on its own, but something marketed as the Quicksilver suit should be film accurate, at least in color.

    He was talking about bullet holes methinks

    And you have to get over the fact its not movie accurate... neither is the captain america one - his is sky blue in the film, not grey
    Also its not marketed as the quicksilver suit - its a design based off it (its called the pietro)
    If they sold the actual screen accurate version to the general public, it would make the costume in the film look cheap, because that is his whole costume, not a base layer under a suit of armour or caps suit

    Cap wears two colors of the shirt in the film. When he is taking to Maria Hill in Avengers Tower, the shirt is gray. When he is chopping wood with Stark, it's the blue version.

    I know that he wore it in the tower, but I had no idea its a different version from the one he wore while chopping wood. Interesting. Seen the movie only once... I gotta see it again...

    Could also be the same shirt with a different lighting/color treatment done to the two scenes in post production.

    has anyone considered modifying the quicksilver under armour. On the chest piece the grey colours are relatively accurate but the black areas need to be navy blue (maybe they could be dyed??) the seams need to be stitched over with blue as they are also black. The Lightning pieces also need to be sewn on. The sleeves are the biggest issueas as the design is completely wrong, the patterns are out of places and there are no thumbholes so the sleeves would have to be completely redone. I know under armour shirts are expensive and modification is a risky long shot but let's be honest we were all disappointed by the quicksilver shirt

    Thats what I thought at first when I saw the shirt again, this time looking bluish, during the wood chopping scene outside Hawkeye's house.

    Like you said, its expensive and I just don't want to modify it. Maybe some brave souls here who have the UA Pietro shirt would want to give it a try. Don't dare try it on mine. I still like how unique it looks with the textured pattern and all even if the colour and design is wrong. The only one they did that was nearly perfect is the Iron Man one with only some subtle differences. Noticeable if you compare it with the one Stark wore in the movie. Its otherwise perfect. I'm wearing it right now, very comfortable.

    Do you know of a proxy or forwarding service from Singapore to the US? I noticed they are still available on the UA Singapore website but I have only ever forwarded goods from Japan.

    My experience with UA compression sizing, order a size up for true compression fit. I wear both L and XL compression shirts from UA whereas I normally wear size M for regular clothes; even UA's non-compression shirts are size M for me. The XLs still fit snug on me but functionally probably doesn't provide enough compression, still looks good though. Reason I sometimes wear XLs is because UA's compression shirts tend to ride up a bit.

    *, so I probably should have ordered an XL huh? I figured I could go with the L since I'm only 5'5. Does the shirt ride up a significant amount?

    Thanks,

    At 5'5 I think you might actually be a size M (see size chart below, err one size up), but a size L should still fit you snug. FYI the shirt riding up has to do more with hips and butt, so if you have flatter hips you should be ok. I definitely think a XL would be too big on you.

    Okay, sounds like the L should be fine then. Thanks for all the insight, I appreciate it!

    If I can get a hold of the Quicksilver Under Armour shirt in a size L I would absolutely modify it to be screen accurate, I have it all planned out on how to achieve the right look and colors while keeping the texture. If anyone can help me out I can Paypal the cost.

    Just an updated response from UA customer service...

    The woman I spoke to was super nice and apologietic. She said that after selling out online in 2 days, they put in a request for a restock but that it may not happen this year. She also thanked me for being so understanding. Apparently a lot of folks have been calling and flipping out when they can't get a shirt. I apologized for the behavior of my fellow fanboys. Lol.

    I also noticed some selling on eBay for double the msrp. Was really tempted but it would have been hard enough to justify an $80 shirt, no less one that cost almost $200 with shipping.

    Hopefully we'll see some more of these before next year but I wouldn't be too hopeful.
