Sweatpants: comfortable. Dress slacks: not so much if you really wanna compare. Sweatpants: great for doing laundry, bad for wearing to work. Not anymore with the Dress Pant Sweatpants, a pair of sweats tailored for business casual wear.
Made by Betabrand, the pants should look like a fine pair of charcoal wool trousers at first glance. Stylishly tailored and shaped to go well with a button-down shirt, it looks like a regular pair of dress pants no different from what you’ll find hanging out in office cubicles around the world.
Designed to deliver the same comfort as your favorite pair of loose-fitting workout trousers (or your, gasp, pajama jeans), the Dress Pant Sweatpants are made from high-end French Terry fabric, with plenty of room inside to give your lower body proper breathing space. Equipped like real dress pants, it features slash pockets in front, a pair of button-down flap pockets in the back and loops so you can throw on a leather belt for an even dressier appearance. They also put in double-layer knee patches for extra comfort when hiding under the desk on your knees (these guys think of everything).
Whether you’re productively calling clients in your tiny cubicle, staring blankly into space during a meeting or sneaking a nap in the server room, these trousers should let you get through them in the most relaxed manner. Plus, it’s literally impossible to tell apart from real dress pants at a reasonable distance, so we doubt the grumpy dress code police in your office will notice.
