At first, when you’re holed up at home, putting on proper clothes can feel like a chore. Eventually, you realize it’s an important part of maintaining routine and adding structure to your day, so you transition from pjs (Prada, probably) to loungewear. But after weeks of lazing about in your ratty sweatpants from summer camp, you start to yearn for the good ol’ days of Getting Dressed. Donning your finest suits feels excessive (by all means, do your thing), but what’s the point of wearing jeans and a jumper at home?
Scientists will spend millennia answering that very question, but in the meantime, we have a solution: the luxury sweatpant. Plush with the right amount of stretch for mobility, but with a cool, modern silhouette so as to qualify as “outside clothes”. Here are 10 options you’ll still want to wear when you can finally leave your house.
Louis Vuitton Monogram Track Pant
These technical track pants have a relaxed fit and are adorned with a discrete textured Monogram LV effect. The right leg also includes a signed metallic staple from Virgil Abloh’s latest collection. No wonder these are from the “Staples Collection”.
Brunello Cucinelli Track Pants
These track pants, made from a soft cotton-blend jersey, were crafted in Solomeo, a small medieval hamlet based on top of a hill in Italy where the brand is based. The light grey rib-knitted sections give them an elevated look. You’ll feel slightly more put-together and way more comfortable.
The Row Cashmere Track Pants
Crafted from the finest cashmere and manufactured in Italy, these track pants are really the height of luxury.
HUGO Navy Lounge Pants
Hugo’s navy lounge pants are slim fit with three pockets and a drawstring to enhance comfort and style. The green trim adds a nice touch.
Gucci Classic Logo Lounge Pants
Rock Gucci’s classic logo from your home office in the form of these relaxed-fit cotton-blend lounge pants. Comfort has never looked this good.
John Elliot Beige Lounge Pants
These tapered beige mid-rise lounge pants are the perfect compromise between pyjamas and “real clothes.” Classy enough for your coffee-run and comfy enough for your La-Z-Boy.
Givenchy Technical Jersey Jogger Pants
Stay warm, cozy and cool in these technical jersey black sweats. You’ll be the most stylish couch potato there ever was, but dressed to break into a sprint at any time.
Moncler Gray Striped Lounge Pants
With a concealed drawstring at the elasticized waistband, a mock fly and three pockets, these slim-fit terry lounge pants are simple and sleek. Rock these grey sweats in your home office, gym, or living room.
Prada Technical Fleece Trousers
Prada’s joggers are reflect the brand’s shift into technical sportswear. While the classic nylon material is available on many a Prada pant, these white fleece trousers are the (slight more) couch-friendly option.
Thom Browne Classic Sweatpants
Not many designers have both gray suits and gray sweatpants as their signatures. But not every designer is Thom Browne. The New York-based designer creates some of the softest sweatpants around with a vintage style. The white engineered 4-bar stripe is almost as recognizable as the grosgrain loop tab sewn in to each Thom Browne garment.
