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.
