Sweatpants have historically had a really bad rep. Of course, if you’re carelessly pulling on the same pair of food-stained jogging bottoms for days on end, you’re doing it wrong. Yes, there’s definitely an element of ease about sweatpants, but that doesn’t mean giving up on making an effort. We’ve taken more notice of sweatpants this year than any year before, which is understandable seeing as we barely left our homes. In the process, we’ve grown to become connoisseurs of the track pant, recognizing what makes or breaks the humble sweatpant.
In previous years we may have avoided luxury sweatpants altogether, citing them and as an unnecessary expense, but if you haven’t recognized the vital importance of sweatpants in 2020 then you may never recognize it at all. We’ve changed our tune, with our everyday wardrobes now rotating around luxury sweatpants from the likes of Loewe, Gucci, and more.
