New Office Attire: Dress Pant Sweatpants?
You’ve got to love how Facebook somehow pushes those lovely “suggested post” ads to your news feed. Supposedly, they have something to do with stories you’ve liked and/or clicked on. Which must mean Facebook wants me to dress better – but yet still be comfortable, if I’m to believe the suggested post that appeared on my feed yesterday for something called “dress pant sweatpants”.
Yes, they’re a real product– sweatpants that are specifically made to look like dress pants. They’re made by Betabrand, come in several different colors: gray, pinstriped and black. It’s not a joke (as I thought it was at first). Apparently they ARE real. And comfortable, too – if you believe this story from CNN.
I had no idea. I also had no idea what they cost: $108 for the gray dress sweatpants. $108…for sweatpants?!? I don’t think I’ve paid $108 in total for all the sweatpants I’ve ever owned!
