When we think about the best men’s sweatpants, we’re not thinking about overly baggy, slouchy sweats that you throw on with flip-flops to head down to class in your dorm room basement (not that you ever did that, right?). No sir, when we talk about the best men’s sweatpants, we’re talking about a new breed — stylish sweatpants that are made with luxurious, premium fabrics and cut more like your favorite pair of jeans or chinos than baggy sweats. It can be done, trust us. The five pairs of men’s sweatpants below are the proof.
If you’re going to wear sweatpants, you might as well start with some of the best fabric around, even if that means the price tag reflects that. You’re investing in the Transit Sweatpants, made with Transit Merino Fleece, crafted to wear soft while regulating your temperature and resisting odor; all qualities you should look for when shopping for sweats.
Blending athletic inspiration with quality materials and made-in-America construction seems to be what Flint and Tinder does best. The sporty Fieldhouse Sweatpants are our kind of pair for fall and winter.
What’s more comfortable than sweatpants? Sweatpants made from French terry washed for softness and injected with the type of laid-back style for which Faherty Brand is known.
Outerknown set out to make the perfect travel sweatpants, and they’ve done a more-than-admirable job at achieving that aim. The Sur Sweatpants start with an innovative blend of cotton and hemp, then finish with a distinctive orchard green color. Zippered back pockets also help to keep your phone and wallet handy.
If you absolutely have to leave the house wearing sweatpants, you might as well throw on a pair with tailored, technical style and fabric that’s waterproof, wind-resistant, and stain-resistant. More than fitting to wear to watch the game at your favorite watering hole, right?
