Smart Dress Pant Sweatpants Disguised Loungewear for the Office


Dress Pant Sweatpants are perhaps the most innovative addition to the male wardrobe we’ve ever seen. They look like smart trousers but feel like tracksuit bottoms. Accordingly, you can wear them to work but imagine yourself enjoying another Sunday afternoon in your stale flat with a Paisano’s resting on your belly, Pocari Sweat bottles littering the floor, watching a mindless action film without Tom Cruise. We hate that man.

Made from high-end French terry fabric, colleagues will assume you’re wearing woolen dress pants as per usual – unless the stance at your desk gives it away. It’s difficult to wear something as comfortable as traccy-Bs without spreading your legs as far apart as possible and slouching your way down your seat as if you were a gel-like amoebic form. Don’t let them fool you.

Priced at US$90, the garment has proved so popular that the company behind it, Betabrand, sold out its first two runs. Fortunately, you can submit a pre-order for the next delivery in March. Sizes range from 28W-32L to 40W-32L (these are real fake proper trousers after all) so you should be able to find something that fits unless you’re so big you really do belong on a sofa.

Smart sweatpants in every sense.
