As much as I love the trend, I would never spend over $100 on some grey sweats. True, you need to search a little to find more fitted options but c’mon now. An Urban Outfitters option (mens – but you know how little that means) and J.Crew’s “un-sweatpant“. I might spring for these but even $60 makes me roll my eyes. Plus, they ain’t really sweatpant-y enough. American Apparel has the best ones for a vintage feel. Just sold myself. They’re the winners.

Got this WSJ quote from The Fash Pack. It’s quite amusing.

Wall Street Journal has chosen to analyse the trend – and guess what? It’s divisive. Take this, for example: “‘You should be aware people perceive sweatpants as workout gear,’ cautions Daniel Post Senning, moderator of the question-and-answer blog of etiquette experts Emily Post Institute. ‘Sweatpants will communicate workout wear to the vast majority of people.'”
