How Is This A Thing?! Joe's Jeans To Debut Sweatpant Jeans
October 4, 2011
Last year when Pajama Jeans launched, they were a source of fascination–but on one in the fashion industry actually took them seriously.
Or so we thought.
Now, Joe’s Jeans, a designer brand that are a fashion editor favorite, are debuting Jean Sweats.
Yep, you read that right. The name alone makes us think of what happens to your body when it’s too hot outside to actually wear denim. As in, “It’s so hot outside, I’m starting to get the jean sweats!”
According to Joe’s jeans, This new form of “jeans” feels like sweatpants, and are made from “a unique fabric technology that provides 360 degrees of comfort and movement while retaining its shape as a denim style.”
Ok, so a pair of structured sweatpants. Still skeptical.
There are three styles: The Skinny, The High Water, and The Skinny Flare, in medium and dark blue rinse…and they cost $158. WTF?! Not sure how they can get away with those prices.
Joe’s Jeans told us the fabric has the “advanced versatility of indigo yarns allowing for complete customization fabric finishes.” And the indigo woven resemble a knit terry but are sewn together like real denim.
What do you think? Would you ever try a pair?
