Jogging pants don’t have to be merely for jogging. In fact, most kids jogging bottoms are just comfy trousers that don’t have fussy fastenings. There are no zips to open embarrassingly, there are no belts to have to buckle and remove for laundering and there are no buttons to lose and compromise your modesty. Although they are styled on the jogging pants of serious joggers from the 80s they perhaps ought ot be renamed and marketed as ‘Relax-o.pants’. Easily slipped on with an elasticated waist (and perhaps draw cord) they are brilliant for covering young bodies that don’t always conform to clothes sizes. Lots of young boys can never get trousers or jeans to fit properly because they have no apparent backside! Regular jeans and trousers in the right leg length just slide off their hips annoyingly and can look silly or scruffy. For children whose bodies grow at strange rates – stretch and fill – with alternating chubbiness and lengthiness a garment like jogging pants will still fit comfortably and look well regardless of the current shape. Sprawled on the floor watching TV, sat cross-legged playing a hand held game or lying back listening to an mp3 player with headphones making them oblivious to the outside world, a pair of jogging pants will be comfortable whatever position boys and girls manage to shape themselves into in their leisure time. Worn with a T-shirt or polo shirt, sweat shirt, hoodie or a fleece, jogging pants will always look great and be in vogue.
