What was once the subject of many a punch line in my tribe and among the characters on one of my most beloved TV shows, Happy Endings (RIP), has become a hotter-than-a-heaping-bag-of-Manhattan-summer-sidewalk-trash must have item: pajama jeans.
These are not just any pj pants in disguise. These are the Rag & Bone Miramar Jeans, but they aren’t jeans made of sweatpant material as many reviewers are quick to point out. They are straight up sweatpants covered with a digital denim print, down to the “button.” I am not a fan of wearing sweatpants in public, but I will admit that the color and “distressing,” along with the rave reviews are blowing my mind in a way that compels me to see them in person (in pajama jean?). The real kicker? Not one reviewer regrets spending $300 on a pair of sweatpants, and most say they are worth every penny. They are sold out at Shopbop, Revolve, Nordstrom and Barney’s, but rumor has it (this has been confirmed so a rumor it is not at press time) that they are fully stocked at the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store in Manhattan. If you cannot bear to step foot in store for these (or anything else for that matter) but you’re happy to try them on in the privacy of your own home, you can pre-order them at Saks.com and Rag & Bone.
Celebs like Heidi Klum and Ashley Benson are jumping on this pajama jean train.
All aboard? Or do these make you want Jesus to take the wheel?
