Pants have a perception as garments that are worn for stressful purposes. I’m sure we’ve all felt that feeling when we have to leave the sofa and go out to buy something and thought “Drat, I have to put on my pants.” But not all pants are boring pants. Some pants are fun, easy to wear, comfortable and constructed to lounge about in – like track pants for men! When it comes to the winter month, or we’re looking for a beautiful night’s sleep, pyjamas are our go-to. Joggers are perfect for working out, and also a great garment to wear when you’re running out for groceries. Or just running – pyjamas can also be men’s running pants, if you want them to be. That’s why this post is dedicated to debunking the boring perceptions associated with pants. It all comes down to picking the right pair, and here’s why!
The best track pants for men
Joggers are back in vogue
Joggers are the quintessential track pants for men. They’re called joggers because they were initially designed to be used by athletes, as men’s running pants. The features that they were selected for reflect this origin. They’re lightweight, provide thermal insulation and come with enough flexibility to allow for stretching. However, starting from the 80s, joggers have started building up the image of being leisurewear. It still took a while for them to carve out a niche for themselves as socially acceptable chic clothes. During the pandemic, with workplaces shifting online, people began to wear more sweatpants and joggers than ever before. Even Anna Wintour, the queen of high fashion, was spotted wearing them. The truth is, the same comfort, insulation and flexibility that made them ideal sportswear also make them the ideal choice to hang out and chill out in. Style them with a t-shirt or tank top for a casual home look. You can even wear them with a button down and flip for a casual beach party look.
Pyjamas, for bedtime and more!
Pyjamas aren’t a new word in anyone’s vocabulary because they’re universally associated with bed time. Historical evidence suggests that pyjamas have their origin in the royal courts of South Asia, where they were used by royals as loungewear as they retired into their chambers for the evening. They were soon adopted by the British, who introduced them to the Western world as sleepwear. Soon enough, they were establishing a global legacy. Pyjamas (of the royal variety) were usually made with silk, but nowadays, cotton has proven to be the most popular fabric. Soft cotton pyjamas made from rich poplin fibre feels excellent when you just want to take a chill pill at the end of a very stressful day. But who says you can’t wear them elsewhere? Pyjamas look good, and you can always style them with a tanktop or a plain t-shirt when you’re going to visit a friend or going on a leisurely walk. It’s the confidence that matters!
Joggers, but of the Ottoman variety
Developed in Turkey, Ottoman is a type of cotton fabric with crosswise ribs. It is known for its immediately recognizable ribbed look. Joggers are usually known for being made with regular cotton poplin fabric. DaMENSCH has launched a new type of joggers called Ottoman Joggers that are made of this iconic fabric. These joggers feel good, last long, and crucially – they look smart as a tack. You can basically swap your denims and formal trousers with these joggers for a chic and casual look. Wear them with a button down for a classy, yet laid back look for a house party or a date. Pair them with a polo to wear to your office in the form of smart casuals.

Some things to consider
Ok, I’m convinced. Where do I buy these?
Now that we’ve made a persuasive argument for why you should get track pants for men and more, here’s a little bit of a warning to go along with it. Not every occasion is a casual occasion, and unless you’re very brave, it’s a good idea to check out the dress code before you actually throw on a pair of track pants. However, we’re fully behind the idea of popularizing track pants as a piece of casual attire. Wear them to dates, coffee, casual Fridays at work and even while you’re just chilling out at home.
Another thing to consider is your size. To get the best out of your look while styling the best joggers for men, make sure you have a look at the size chart to figure out what best fits you. Keep a measuring tape handy to check your measurements and make sure you pick up the pair that fits you best. For best results, consult the size chart on the product page for information on finding the best fit for you.
