SB Endorses: The Sweat Trousers!

I am the opposite of an impulse shopper. I have a running list of things that I would like to add to my wardrobe, if I can find them. Every now and then, however, I'll come across something and say "Damn...I gotta have it".

The other day, it was these "luxury fleece" dress-sweats by the  "Original American Outdoor Clothing Company" Woolrich.


These are sweat pants that you can wear to work! (provided you have a pretty cool boss).

I actually wore them to work yesterday (see below) and proved that, when styled correctly and hemmed properly, you can wear sweat pants with a tailored blazer and dressy lace-ups. Most people didn't even notice they were fleece - and those who did thought it was genius.

Who says work clothes can't be comfortable?

Yours in style,

Where can I get pants like that?

I have everything your wearing, well maybe similar, and I would like to put myself together like that.

Until this point I thought these were absolutely terrible, but you pull them off sir.

Side Note: Woolrich needs to chill with all the diffusion lines. Shit is getting out of control.

When I first saw the title of this post, I thought, "That's it - SB really has lost his mind!"

But then I read it. And now I want a pair.

Doesn't the backside begin to drop a bit after a few hours of wear? That's the trouble with all sweatpants.

Check out Dirk Bikkembergs' Fall 2010 RTW from Milan. Just like you said. Execution is everything.

Well done.

I think the vest is a bit busy. Also, you should tousle the hair. On the other hand that blazer is lovely.

I'm beginning to love this blog. Great work.
