Are Sweatpants Pants?
This is my most favorite commercial since the Old Spice ad featuring Isaiah Mustafa. As three guys prepare to go out on the town, one argues that his sweatpants, which he’s paired with a blazer, are not sweats, they’re “comfortable, low-key, cool gray slacks,” to which his friend replies: “On this planet we call them sweatpants.” Way to go, Tide to Go, I willingly watched your commercial five times; it made me laugh that hard. So, what do you think? Are sweatpants pants? Even though designers like Alexander Wang make fancy versions, I’m not so sure they can be worn in place of actual slacks, even if they are stain-free.
