These dress pant sweatpants are the male equivalent of jeggings

Dress Pant Sweatpants

It’s still pretty arguable whether or not girls should wear jeggings, a portmanteau between jeans and leggings, as “real” pants. On one hand, they are super comfortable and fit a woman’s every curve. Conversely, too tight a pair can look unsightly, and there’s something to be said about the laziness of not putting on actual pants with buttons and zippers. While that’s up for discussion, it would appear a male equivalent of lazy wear plus real pants disguise has emerged with Betabrand’s Dress Pant Sweatpants, the sweats that resemble business wear but feel like sitting on clouds.

Dress Pant SweatpantsThe Dress Pant Sweatpants fits true to size, with pockets where dress pants would typically be found along the side and the back. Double-layer knee patches also give the pants more lines to divert it from looking like you’re simply lounging around. The sweatpants are made with French terry cloth, and can be hemmed to fit your desired length. Neon orange lining completes the look.

“More than a pair of pants, this is an experiment in sartorial subterfuge,” Betabrand says about the product, calling it an innovative way to use new fabrics. “Whether you’re in the office or on the road, rest assured that these trousers will make any day feel like Casual Friday. But no one will be the wiser.”

Dress Pant SweatpantsBased on the product photos, they look pretty passable as real slacks and seem perfect for travel while still looking like you kind of tried. However, the outdoor pictures make them look pretty obvious they’re not business wear. Perhaps from afar, you can try to pass them off as tweed pants with the help of a leather belt. A matching terry blazer also finishes the outfit, though combining the two would probably not make it any more convincing.

Due to overwhelming response, Betabrand has also sold out the stock of its first batch of Dress Pant Sweatpants in a quick two weeks. If you want to give the pair a try, pre-order them on the official site for $90 apiece. The company says the next shipment is expected to go out by the end of May, while you can also keep an eye on the matching Earl Gray blazer to see when that’ll go up for sale. Even if you aren’t gutsy enough to wear it to work, it’s another way to make lounging at home all the more stylish.
