When my good friend and #TravelSkills Twitter chat co-host Chris McGinnis wrote the other day that he’d discovered dress pants perfect for sleeping on a plane—including while in a lie-flat seat—he got my undivided attention.
It turns out that Chris, who travels the world, discovered Betabrand’s store while strolling down San Francisco’s eclectic Valencia Street. After walking in, he immediately fell in love with their new dress pant sweatpants, which he writes “are PERFECT for business travel.” The reason is they’re cut like dress pants and at first glance look to be a sharp pair of chinos or wool trousers. But with a closer inspection, you see they’re made out of “French terry” (sweatpant fabric), which is soft, warm and stretchy.
Although $108 is a lot for sweatpants, it’s certainly not for a nice pair of dress pants. And if you use my referral link, you get $25 off your first purchase of $75 or more (full disclosure: I also get a $25 credit towards a pair).[notice align=center]Referral link for $25 off
I can’t wait to try mine out because often times when I’m traveling for business, I don’t have time to change into something more comfortable or don’t want to look like a complete slob wearing sweat pants—especially if my upgrade clears. Thanks to Chris for turning me onto a brand I’ve never heard of and what really sound like the perfect pair of pants for overnight travel! I love the idea of arriving after a long overnight flight and wearing a pair of pants that were super comfortable to sleep in and still look great for a meeting.
FYI: They also have pants for women including several models of yoga pants that can serve the same purpose.
