I, uh.

I don't even know what to think about these.

link


At first glance, these Dress Pant Sweatpants look like exquisite black wool trousers. Which they are, except for the wool part. Now look closer; better yet, put on a pair.

We made ‘em from high-end French terry, which has a subtle heather texture similar to fine suit cloth. So they look sophisticated — and feel slumped-on-the-couch comfy like your favorite pair of old sweatpants.

Some in here are going to get a real kick out of the brand name as well.

Brilliant!!!

NYC, SF, and Austin hipsters are buying these by the armful to go with their new iphones.

hipster sweatpants for $118.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 2:55:22 PM EST
OH YEAH!

Finally, something I can team with my tuxedo t-shirt...classy baby.

Lulz.

I wouldn't be surprised if this catches on. People seem to be getting more and more casual in their manner of dress. Seems like a logical extension of the existing trend.

Shit, I'd wear those. A little too spendy, though.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 2:56:50 PM EST
But can it hide a boner?

Yeah, I can't see myself spending over $100 on freaking sweatpants.

especially sweatpants I'm supposed to wear to look like I'm not wearing sweatpants.


Link Posted: 10/1/2014 2:58:47 PM EST
I think they cost that much because they are made in San Francisco.

I'd pay upwards of $20. Probably.

This! They are too expensive, but they'd be perfect for when someone makes me go to church.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 3:05:35 PM EST
I might buy a pair at 50 just to see the quality.

I would rock those motherfuckers.

I'd wear them if my legs would fit in them (which they won't lol)

Save your money and seek out a better crowd!

These are the kind of thing that if anyone ever found out you would be the laughingstock of the office for months.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 3:20:31 PM EST
I've got a pair of those, or something very much like them...made by Ecko. Except for a tiny logo under the belt loops, you'd never know they weren't dress pants...but comfy as fuck. I wear them when I'm doing "dressy casual", but I dig them a lot.

Before you guys jump on the bandwagon, know this: It will be a hipster trend. Guaranteed.

link please..

Wish I could provide one, I found them at TJ Maxx a few years ago, and I've looked online for them since and haven't found anything. Probably an issue of not knowing the model/terminology of what they are, but they might have been a limited production or something odd.

They look very similar to the ones in the OP's link tho.

That very much depends on your office. In mine, you'd have guys asking for a link. But, if you worked in an investment firm or sales office, you'd be laughed at.

"Betabrand"

I do what I want. Fuck hipsters. Not doing something because it's a trend is just as beta as doing something because it's a trend.

If I want to wear dress sweatpants you better believe I will.

I was expecting something like "Basement Dweller Pants", but "BetaBrand Pants" does sound like it will hit a chord here on GD."

Wake up, put on dress sweats, go to the gym, go to school, go to work, have dinner with friends, go to bed.. All while in the same pair of pants. Looking professional and feeling functional the entire time. No time wasted changing clothes.


Will be ordering 4 pairs of these in addition to my tuxedo t shirts.

It's not the look so much as being "the guy that bought $108 sweatpants".

Shit, around here they wear ill-fitting jammie bottoms and torn, 10 year old 3XXXL Tony Stewart "Rattlin' the Rafters" Home Depot T-shirts with ice cream (I hope) stains, and mismatched imitation Crocs.
