At first I wanted to wear these track pants only on the weekends. But as they are so comfortable, elegant and chic, I started wearing them to the office as well. The are made of Japanese weave material which is crease-resistant (perfect if you spend most of the day sitting at your desk) and has a cooling quality (exactly what I need for summer). They are so not your regular track pants that you would use for sport or to feel comfortable when you travel. They are too “posh” for that.
If you live in the U.S.A, you have most likely heard about Everlane. I discovered this young and dynamic brand only few months ago at a conference about Fashion and E-commerce. Their modus operandi was shown as an example of a new way of making and selling fashion.
Unlike 99% of traditional retailers, Everlane is transparent about their prices. Do you want to know the true cost of your t-shirt? They’ll breaking it down for you. At the bottom of the page you can see how much was the material, hardware, labor, duties and transport. Even if the t-shirt was made for $9 and they sell it for $18, I feel much more comfortable paying it when I know what I am paying for. And why.
What I like the most is their “Choose What You Pay” concept which applies to selected items. In order to move overstock faster, they let you decide how much you want to pay. Cool, right?
I love my lace dresses and ruffle blouses but when it comes to 9 to 5 style, I prefer high-quality, minimalist and functional designs. You can call it boring, I’d reckon that office wardrobe should be versatile. And affordable.
Now, how would you wear these track pants?
