Workout leggings have made major strides on the performance front—there are styles that can track your workout, up your calorie burn, and make you look damn good in the process. Now, they’re taking a leap forward in the luxury arena, too, with Alala‘s new customization and monogram service.

Called Alala Carte, the program offers fitness fans a chance to personalize the brand’s bestselling Captain Tight, choosing between seven-plus colorways and prints for the upper, lower, and mesh panels, and adding up to three initials on the lower right calf.

At $185, the leggings will run you $75 more than the classic Captain Tight (and a whole lot more than anything you’ll find at, say, Target), but for those who live in their gym clothes and want to be the envy of everyone in spin class, they may be worth the splurge.

The label debuted the program today along with a campaign featuring some of their favorite fitness devotees, including FlyBarre master instructor Brittany Franklin, American Repertory Ballet Company dancer Lily Saito, and ChaiseFitness founder Rachel Piskin.

Though the tights are billed as the first customizable workout wear, there are some other options on the market for those seeking one-of-a-kind gym attire: Australian brand Pins To Kill, for instance, offers a design-your-own-leggings service where you can upload a print of your choice and have up to 40 characters printed down one of the legs—it’s different look, but a similar concept.

Your move, denim.
