Threads for Thought: Joggers

Blending the lines between sportswear and active wear has been the trend for the past couple of years as the men's landscape becomes casually elevated. This melding of styles has led to a unique style of pant that combines two of your favorites, chinos and sweats.
This new genre is dubbed the jogger pant, using the same fabric that you might find on that favorite pair chinos and attaching an elastic band to the bottom to ensure a tapered look; other optional features include a waistband tie seen on pretty much every pair of sweatpants. At first glance, they will look exactly like khakis, but a second take will reveal the a sporty, casual vibe that will complement any look. It's important to recognize just how casual joggers are and to pair them accordingly; meaning these do not mix well with a tuxedo jacket, but sport coats are still game!
