2020 WILL Always the year I started to think of pants as a social construct. I came to this revelation a few months after the quarantine when I realized that while there was so much that was out of my control, I could choose one that had an overwhelming impact on how I looked and felt : what I was wearing.
First, I took my newly gained freedom to choose pure comfort over typical office clothes. With a t-shirt, shorts and slippers, I felt comfortable and comfortable. I felt under control and felt under control. This allowed me to concentrate on creative projects and get my job done.
But when I settled in my new normal uniform, I felt a strange longing to hide my hairy calves. My casual handling of WFH fashion felt less like a personal statement, but more like a little laziness. I had to mess things up, but wasn’t sure what that meant. I needed something more professional than my shabby gym pants, but it still had to be more casual than my office chinos.
At first, I doubted whether there were such unicorn pants. Ultimately, I discovered my new favorite pair: the ABC Pant Classic by lululemon. When a colleague recommended my pants, I was skeptical. Doesn’t Lululemon make yoga pants? But it turns out they have a really sharp, functional, yet elegant men’s fashion, and after wearing the ABC Pant for a whole week, I’m now a Lululemon convert.
They are more elegant than joggers, but more comfortable than pants
lululemon ABC pant
After selecting When I picked up the pants (which I had ordered in black) from my local Lululemon, I was impressed by the fabric that the brand calls Warpstreme. It is a stretchy polyester blend with a Japanese loom that feels closer to the active roots of Lululemon. But when I put my pants on and looked at them in the mirror, I found that the clean lines and general fit had more to do with the chinos that had been folded and unworn in my closet for months.
This material is a secret weapon for reasons of comfort. I spent a lot of time in my new makeshift office at home, but I also leaned forward to take dishes out of the dishwasher or stretch out behind the couch to vacuum, and I never felt my pants slide up or crease. I didn’t wear a belt because I didn’t have to – the waist was roomy but stayed on my hips after days of wearing and moving. The pants don’t crease easily, which means that if you wear them for several days in a row (like me) they still look good. They are also machine-friendly, making maintenance very easy.
You can wear them anywhere without feeling conspicuous
MY PERIOD are not quite as varied as before the pandemic, but it was nice to have pants that are relaxed enough to work from home and take my dog Murphy for leisurely walks in the neighborhood, but also suitable for social purposes distant beers or even the possible return to the office. They are all day trousers. At a time when it looks like there are so many more important things that keep your brain busy than what you will be wearing, I love the uncomplicated versatility that the ABC Pant offers. And since the pants work in every season (they’re not ideal for heat waves, but extremely breathable when it comes to long pants), I’m looking forward to wearing them in the fall. Not just around the house and neighborhood, but maybe even in an NYC office.
(Entertaining fact: ABC stands for “anti-ball crushing”, which was a primary concern of mine when I made the brave decision to stop wearing shorts around the clock. I can confidently say that in this case the truth is advertising.)
Feel-good fashion is a real thing
I would pose This extensive social isolation has produced a few silver streaks, especially that I have reduced how much I care about my appearance. It’s great from a vanity point of view. From a marriage perspective, however, it may not be the fairest thing you could subject your partner to. When my wife took her vows under a pergola two years ago, she could not predict that her groom would grow a restrained mullet and wear bandanas more often.
When my wife came home from her shift in the hospital and found me dressed not in a batik t-shirt and running shorts, but in black pants and a shirt that was properly steamed, it felt like we were one couple of degrees closer to normal times. Although I had rebelled against the idea that I would feel better if I dressed for work from home (or if I put a little effort on my appearance), I would only go with it for a few days Otherwise the ABC pants will convince.
