Help us realize our holiday dream of eating ice cream in front of the tube in matching track suits.

This year my husband and I finally watched the entirety of The Sopranos. And what we took away from it most was the range of, and effortless ease of, track suits, worn by almost everyone in the cast in at least one scene. The track suit: such a versatile leisure garment. So husband and I would like to get a set of matching track suits for Christmas. The specifics:
1. We would prefer to get them in person, so as to feel the fabric and such before buying it. We live in Chicago. However if the best matching track suit purveyor is an online shop, we will pursue it.
2. We want full zip jackets for the top, as opposed to half-zip pull over type tops.
3. I would prefer a nice velour or French terry, although my husband is less enthused by velour. Neither of us want the windbreaker material type of track suit.
4. Pants should be straight leg, not elastic ankle. There could be a bit of flare in mine, but straight leg should be the default.
So, Metafilter, I ask you: where can we get our matching tracksuits? Is SportMart our best bet, or should we look at a department store? We have gabagool to eat by the fistful and no proper garments to wear as we stand in front of the fridge to do so.
