Change My Mind

Folks, I’m not above admitting I’m wrong. Not terribly long ago I wrote a post where I railed against sweatpants. I said they had no place in the public eye and that unless you’re lounging at home with no intent to leave the house you shouldn’t be wearing them.

I was wrong about that. Kind of.

I still loathe those big baggy grey sweats that absolutely no one has ever looked good in. However, I have since written that post purchased a couple of pairs of sleeker athletic sweats for my job and I’ve become a bit of a convert. First off, the all-black colour of these things is leagues better than those sorry grey wastes of cloth. Also making the cut of the pants actually somewhat follow the form of one’s leg improves the look of them substantially, it no longer looks like I could have either two twigs for legs or behemoth legs that scream “NEVER SKIP LEG DAY” in the same pants.  My new sweats are at least somewhat honest about those things I walk around on all day.

Probably most importantly though, is that these things haven’t sacrificed one bit of the comfort of sweats to achieve this “I’m not ashamed to be seen in public wearing these” look that had previously been lacking in my other sweats.

“Wow Jonny, those sweats sure do sound amazing, wherever did you get them?”

Great question nobody, I got my lovely straight black Adidas athletic sweats at Dick’s Sporting Goods. They were on sale so I got them for about 30$ USD, what a steal that was. I would recommend anyone who wears pants take the time to go to their local Dick’s Sporting Goods stores found across the country to purchase a pair today! You’ll never feel ashamed of your outfit in public again!

Shoot wouldn’t I be great at selling out?

Really though that’s like all I got for today. It’s Labour Day weekend and I got 100 million music suggestions from earlier this week to go through so I can make the Great White North playlist. (My first draft had this as the Great White Playlist, but I decided that was a bit questionable so I added the North part in, figured it was for the best.) Take care Y’all, make good choices and I’ll catch ya later.

 

I pretend like I’ve got things figured out when really I’m making it up as I go. Honest to goodness truth.
