For a long time, gray sweatpants were counted as one of the least attractive things a man could wear. That was until the internet had its say. In the internet age, gray sweatpants have not only shaken their bad reputation as a slob’s best friend, but they’ve also gained a reputation as a sartorial thirst trap. As the clouds darken and the temperature drops, we all know that gray sweatpants season is upon us.

Gents have long peacocked in fine tailoring and luxury fashion, but the beauty in the sexualization of gray sweatpants is that they’re the polar opposite of those traditions. For starters, you can reap the benefits of gray sweatpants for a fraction of the cost of a good suit, and beyond that, gray sweatpants are comfortable and fuss-free.

That said, there’s a full spectrum of gray sweatpants out there, ranging from cheap basics to luxurious investments. So, take some time to work out what kind of gray sweatpants season you want this year, and then check out the best gray sweatpants below.
