Men’s sweatpants have been enjoying some well deserved time in the spotlight in recent years. Although they started out as basic workout apparel, clothing retailers and designers have expanded the category significantly, and now guys have lots of options to choose from. The best men’s sweatpants can work in all kinds of situations, whether you’re gearing up for an abs workout or just looking for something comfortable to get you through the day.
First, consider how you’ll be wearing your pants. For workouts and running, opt for stretchy, lightweight synthetic fabrics, which will keep you cool and won’t restrict your movements. If comfort and aesthetics are your main priorities, look for cotton or cotton blends, which will be soft against your skin and have a more laid-back look than technical fabrics.
In this guide, you’ll find some of the best Nike Dri-Fit sweatpants, the best Adidas sweatpants, and top pairs from other brands as well.
Here are the best men’s sweatpants, track pants, and more to know about right now.
Best Workout Pants: Nike Pro Men’s Pants
These sweats from Nike are made with the company’s moisture-wicking Dri-FIT technology to keep you cool through tough workouts, and the lightweight fabric is designed to stretch for maximum freedom of movement. The tailored fit keeps them from looking baggy, but zippered ankles make them easy to slip on and off over shoes.
Best for Wet Weather: Adidas City Base Woven Pants
Don’t let a little rain get you soaked and derail your workout. These pants from Adidas will keep you comfortable: They feature a DWR coating to repel water, and their trim fit and stretchy polyester-elastane fabric will let you power through all kinds of exercises. Plus, zippered side pockets keep your valuables secure while you break a sweat.
When your plan for the day includes spending an afternoon on the couch, these are the pants you want to throw on first. Made from extra soft organic Japanese cotton, these sweats deliver supreme comfort and a roomy fit. Added bonus: The fabric is blended with recycled polyester to reduce shrinking, so you can keep wearing them for years to come.
Best for Camping: Patagonia Men’s Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pants
Now’s a good time to invest in some fleece sweatpants—when you’re shivering at your mountain campsite later this summer, you’ll wish you had a pair like these. The Patagonia Synchilla pants are made from warm, comfy recycled polyester fleece and feature an integrated belt buckle for a snug fit. They’re perfect for throwing on during chilly nights by the campfire.
These pants combine the comfort of sweats with yoga-specific tailoring. The stretchy jersey fabric feels soft and compliant against the skin, and a tapered fit below the knee paired with a roomier fit in the thigh means these pants won’t constrict your movements or get in your way on the mat.
Need a pair of sweats that you can wear outside without feeling too casual? Grab the Easy Chino, which merges the refined look of chinos—a rear welt pocket, trim fit, cuffable cotton-linen fabric—with a relaxed elastic drawstring waist. You’ll get the comfy fit and feel of your favorite loungewear in a stylish pant that works well with a variety of outfits.
Like any lounge-worthy pair of sweats, these joggers from Softwear are soft and comfortable, but their sleek silhouette sets them apart from your typical lumpy cotton pants. The form-fitting tailoring and simple waistband create a trim look, and the fabric is sustainably sourced, too.
Running demands a very specific kind of pants—they need to be lightweight, breathable, and not mess up your form. This pair from running outfitter Tracksmith is up to the task. Mesh panels at the calves ensure a breezy feel, and the nylon-elastane fabric delivers plenty of give without weighing you down. And with its two zippered side pockets, you can pick up the pace without losing your keys and phone.
When the last factory in a small Rust Belt town closes its doors, an unlikely hero emerges in dutiful, quiet Allery Parkes (Peter Gerety). A career employee of the factory, the aging Allery can’t reconcile how to live a life simply sitting at home doing nothing, and against the advice and pleas of his loving wife, Iola (Talia Shire), he forms an unlikely friendship with his charismatic neighbor, Walter Brewer (Billy Brown), in order to revive the defunct factory. As their community rallies around them, and as their former corporate bosses strategize how to implode this unexpected movement, Allery learns that he might be something he never thought possible: a leader.

Sleepy Brown, who is dropping a joint project with Big Boi called Big Sleepover (due out early 2020), then explained that Andre 3000 was playing tracks for Anderson .Paak to see if he wanted to work on any of them. Rapper Thurz (Sleepy and Big said they thought it was Murs, but it was definitely Thurz) must have overheard the songs and then figured a new album was on deck.

BERLIN — Sometimes being a super fan does pay off. Honey Dijon, one of the fashion world’s favorite DJs, is living proof — she’s about to launch her own line of apparel and accessories in collaboration with Comme des Garçons, and, as she explained, it’s all happening because she’s just a big fan.
“You know, this is probably going to sound very Barbra Streisand, but I sometimes feel like everything I have manifested in my life is because I was a fan of it,” Dijon told WWD. “I think when you deeply love something, you put yourself in places and situations by sheer force of will, because you want to be surrounded by those people.”
Dijon described Comme des Garçons as “one of the most forward-thinking [brands] in the world” and with its help, she has created a series of premium T-shirts and accessories; the latter includes the kinds of leatherwear any music lover would covet, including three wallets, headphone and USB stick carriers, as well as record bags. Dijon described the small range as “utilitarian and aesthetically pleasing” and it will be available first at the Comme des Garçons-owned Dover Street Market stores. The products will retail for between $ 80 and

Bushwick Bill of The Geto Boys is in the process of creating a documentary about his life and he is asking for help from the Hip-Hop community.
“Bushwick Bill: A Geto Boy – A Documentary Film” will be “Chronicling the life of the gangsta rapper who happens to be a charming, hysterical one-eyed dwarf,” according to a statement. Bushwick was on of the various incarnations of the Geto Boys, but certainly one of the most visible.
Now, the OG rapper has set up a crowd funding site to help raise dollars to create the movie.
The film maker further made their case:
“For the past 3 years, we have been filming and documenting the life of the infamous Richard Shaw, AKA Bushwick Bill, original member of the Geto Boys and all around fascinating presence and one of the most unique entertainers ever. Our desire to do a documentary on Bill has been one that stretches over a decade long. It finally became a reality a few years ago when we were able to track Bill down in Austin, Texas. A bit of a rolling stone, Bill may jump from town to town, but one thing is certain, no matter where he lands, people always recognize him. He is undoubtedly a hardcore rap legend. He has the stories to back it up. He has rapped lyrics that command it. And he literally has the scars to prove it.”
At present day, the film has raised $ 13,122 of the $ 50k goal with fans continuing to add on.
Nominated for 6 Academy Awards; director Mike Nichols' witty, romantic look at life in the corporate jungle stars Melanie Griffith as Tess McGill, an ambitious secretary with a unique approach for climbing the ladder to success. When her classy, but villainous boss (Sigourney Weaver) breaks a leg skiing, Tess takes over her office, her apartment, and even her wardrobe. She then creates a deal with a handsome investment banker (Harrison Ford) that will either take her straight to the top – or finish her off for good.
(AllHipHop News) Last night (September 3), CNN broadcast Sacha Jenkins’ critically acclaimed Hip Hop documentary Fresh Dressed. The Queens filmmaker/writer has already begun putting together his next project, a look into a former professional football player that was accused of killing his ex-wife.
“I’m currently directing a doc about O.J. Simpson. That’s the main thing I’m in the middle of right now,” Jenkins reveals to AllHipHop.com. “Hopefully, Fresh Dressed will continue to create opportunities, not just for me, but other people like us.”
Simpson was a running back at the University of Southern California and in the NFL. The Heisman Trophy winner was later accused of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994. He was acquitted of both counts of murder a year later.
Jenkins has been working as a journalist for over two decades. He has contributed to Vibe, ego trip, Rolling Stone, and other publications. Jenkins currently serves as the creator director of Mass Appeal.
Fresh Dressed was Jenkins directorial debut. The documentary was produced in conjunction with CNN Films and Mass Appeal. Celebrated Hip Hop artist Nas serves as a producer as well.
“I interviewed him for the cover of the first issue of Ego Trip which was a magazine me and Elliott Wilson used to publish. So I’ve been interacting with Nas since at least 1994. Later in life, he became a partner in Mass Appeal where I’m a partner too,” says Jenkins. “As a producer, obviously his credibility goes a long way. His insights on and off screen and his relationships were extremely useful.”

SEATTLE—In response to accusations of an abusive workplace environment, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos assured employees Tuesday that the company’s human resources staff was working 100 hours a week to address their complaints. “I’ve heard your grievances, and I promise that HR is toiling 16 hours a day, plus weekends, until the problem is solved,” read a company-wide email from Bezos, who promised that members of the human resources department would not be allowed to rest for a single second until allegations of a cruel, backstabbing office culture at Amazon were fully dealt with. “Nothing matters more to me than the well-being of our employees, and our HR staff will continue to work their fingers to the bone—not seeing their families or friends or anything at all outside their offices—for as long as it takes to make this right.” Bezos added that any employee not fully …

Is the war on terror – or whatever we call it lately – working?
I think the answer depends on whether you think in terms of goals or systems. If the goal is to stop all future terror attacks on the homeland, we can never know if that is working because we don’t know whether there will be an attack tomorrow. We can feel good about what has happened so far, but the future is a far bigger slice of time than the recent past and we know nothing about how the future will unfold.
But if you see the war on terror as a system, as opposed to a goal, you ask yourself different questions. With a system, you’re looking to continuously improve your knowledge and skills for preventing future attacks. And ideally you want to improve faster than the bad guys are figuring out new methods. But one can never know for sure what the bad guys are planning.
With a systems approach, the government can be expected to try lots of different methods, many of which will turn out to be bad ideas. But we shouldn’t count the number of mistakes to evaluate the system because the whole idea is to try lots of stuff and see what works. With a systems approach you make lots of attempts, evaluate the outcomes and continuously improve. And even “continuous” is hard to measure because progress can come in unexpected steps at any time.
The most successful approach to almost anything in life goes like this: Figure out what works then do it. That’s what the war on terror looks like to me. We observers can’t know whether or not the effort is working in some goal-oriented sense. We can only ask if our knowledge and talents and resources are growing. And clearly they are.
One could argue that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and Syria have made things worse by creating more terrorists than we killed. But I think the important metric is how much the United States and its allies have collectively learned in terms of fighting this type of threat. The knowledge and talents developed along the way are probably the most important change.
Is the war on terror working? I would say yes, from my national perspective, but not because there have been no spectacular attacks on the United States homeland in years. I think success comes in the form of building knowledge and resources that will improve our odds in the future. I can’t know if there was a more cost-effective way to get to this place, or what would happen if we had done things another way. But I am certain that our national capabilities are far better. I call that success.
Someday I expect that the United States and its allies in the fight against ISIS will agree to wall off the new caliphate and cut communications to the outside world. From that point on, any new terror suspects will be thrown over the wall into ISIS territory to keep the threat in one place. And with no outside contact, the society inside the walls will not advance technologically to become a larger threat. Meanwhile, our abilities to guard and defend the wall with technology will grow daily. In the long run, I predict that a prison-caliphate is the only solution. Israel showed that walls can keep danger out. I think we can show that walls can keep danger in as well. And I think we’re heading in that direction. The systems approach ends up there.
You might worry that turning the caliphate into a huge jail would infuriate Muslims outside the caliphate. But keep in mind that no reporters will be allowed into the territory and no news will come out. So allies against ISIS will manufacture some happy-sounding news about how the caliphate is working just great and the people on the inside could not be more pleased with it. And for all we know, that might actually be the case.
These are the types of options we couldn’t discuss with any seriousness before the recent attack in France. So the terrorists just improved our capabilities by putting more options on the table. Our system trumps their goals.
Many readers have asked why I haven’t been more outspoken about the French newspaper massacre. I feel for the victims and families, of course. But I also feel that history will mark the newspaper attack as the beginning of the end of radical Islam outside the walled Caliphate.
