The odds are that when we think of sweatpants we immediately picture some Adidas pants. There is a reason for that. The Adidas pants are what define the image; see in our mind’s eye the loose legs with gathering at the ankles, picture the trefoil logo, large or small but always there and exclusively used on Adidas originals products now; visualize the stripes down the legs. What we are seeing is the image that has defined the word sweatpants for a few generations, and looks likely to continue doing so. When we wear a pair we are tapping into a collective consciousness that cares about quality, wearability and above all, confident style. Why change a good thing? Some trends are here to stay.
