Faaaaccckk! Having to wear these fancy jeans all day makes it seem like I'm off to a funeral or church.

Come on, America. You're not even trying anymore. You've become a nation of babies. One of these days, you're just not even going to get up out of bed. You're a fucking quitter.

I would like to see and feel these for myself before I judge them. Because I got a microfiber plush Snuggie for Christmas and it's undeserving of all the snark I heaped upon it prior to actually owning one. I'm not ashamed to admit, I love that sleeved blanket thing.

I am totally ok with being a quitter. Just not in pajamajeans.

They aren't even funny or campy -- spray on jeans, on the other hand, are extremely funny...

This is totally indicative of the baby boomer's full-on backlash against dressing well. Their parents would dress up to go to work, or out to dinner, but not them! Casual Fridays, snuggies, polo shirts, pajamajeans, they're an entire generation of comfers cozers.

Thankfully it seems like the younger generations are at least concerned with how they present themselves.

Listen, I agree, for a balanced human being, putting on a pair of pants to face the outside world shouldn't be a major hassle or dealbreaker. But there is a not insignificant portion of the American population for whom this is actually a step UP in appropriate attire.

My pajamas are just my boxers. Could we please make a version of those that look like suit pants so I can roll right out of bed and wear them to work? Also if restaurants could start letting me drink right out of the carton, I'd appreciate it.

nitsuj: how about the jeankini?

I would like to tell you a little story about a jeankini I encountered. It was late summer of '06, and we were on the river in Boone County, IA. A few friends and I were waiting with our canoes at the boat launch while our other friends spotted the cars downriver.

While we were waiting, a certain individual arrives at the boat launch - we'll call him Mr. Denim Bikini. Mr. Denim Bikini's denim bikini was not so fancy as the ones you see there on the googles. You see, this particular denim bikini was fashioned from an old pair of jeans, and you know how jeans sort of fit loosely around your crotch? Well, let's just say that no additional steps had been taken to ensure a snug fit around the crotch area once the pant legs had been removed. It was cut so high, in fact, that the pockets just hung out the bottom of the denim bikini's waistband. Mr. Denim Bikini not only sported the classiest (and only, thankfully) denim bikini I have ever seen, but it appeared the denim bikini was the only thing he ever wore judging from the depth of his tan and the wrinkles on his skin. Was there a mullet to top off his ensemble? Oh yes, and it was epic. The moment of truth came when Mr. Denim Bikini climbed into the bed of his pickup to unload his canoes - that is when my friend got an eyeful of Mr. Denim Bikini's family jewels, as they swung out from underneath his Levi Strauss loincloth. Stay classy, Boone County.

Let's get real here. These pajamajeans are made for fat people. The modern sweat pant industry caters to the overweight, and this is just a logical extension. It's a way for people to wear something that doesn't constrict while almost looking like they are wearing jeans. However, especially if you're fit, it's easy to miss this point given the models they used in the commercial. I can say this because I'm not exactly trim, and watching this commercial, I felt like I was looking at one of those advertisements from 60 years ago where the picture is of a back vibrator, but we all know damn well what they were selling.

Before we get too far down this road talking about my fellow fatties, I'll remind the thinner people that they're at least as much to blame for dressing poorly in public. We make fun of spandex, but I rarely see people taken to task for wearing anything labeled The North Face. There is as wide a difference between a business suit and a fleece pullover with hiking pants as there is between that same suit and pajamajeans.

Muddler,don't be a moron. First of all, there is no shortage of plus size jeans. This fatty is wearing plus size jeans as we speak. Secondly, pajama jeans are available in plus sizes, but only up to a 2x, and allegedly "run small", so for a REAL honest-to-god fatty, they're not even going to fit. Lastly, if you've ever been to a rest stop or Walmart, more than half of the people walking around in their pajamas are not even fat.

I've always had a thing for women in dark blue jeans. spandexy jeans? excuse me I'm trying to rewind.

If you're out walking your dog in her Snuggie™ for Dogs™ and wearing your PajamaJeans™, consider rounding it out with the PooTrap.

Warning: video includes product in action. Kind of sad and gross.

I guess this is to justify why teenagers/college students go out in flannel pajama bottoms to the store, the mall, down the street, on the bus, etc. It's annoying. The worse was when I saw one of them wear their friggen slippers to the video store.

Having watched the video, two questions:
  1. Is it really that revolutionary to make jeans out of cotton and spandex?
  2. Why is that T-shirt made out of cardboard?

No, stretch denim has been around for a long time but some are stretchier than others. The more spandex, the stretchier the jean.

Dormisoft is 95% cotton and 5% spandex.

Aberrations like pajama jeans just make me want to go out and buy a new pair of heels and another pencil skirt.

FWIW, that audio track that starts when the page loads is all lies, what with all the "not available anywhere else ever!" talk. Pajamagram.com sells them too. Pajamajeans.com is probably owned by the same people, though.

Also, they're just friggin sweatpants that look kind of like jeans, seam and rivet-wise; doesn't seem too revolutionary to me. Speaking of things that look like jeans, the Olympic team USA snowboard pants that look like jeans are kind of ridiculous.

I don't think these would be too terrible for traveling, but other than that I'm okay with wearing pajamas to the store and walking around in my slippers. I spent my entire senior year of high school in slippers; even in the winter. Mmm.. I miss those days.

In related news, a Tesco store in Cardiff, Wales, has banned shoppers in pyjamas.

Money quote:
Elaine Carmody, 24, a full-time mother of two young boys, described the ban as "ridiculous" and "pathetic".

She said she had regularly gone shopping at the store in her pyjamas until about a week ago when she was turned away when she went to buy cigarettes.

She said she had been "popping in for a pack of fags," but if she had been doing a full shop "then we obviously would have gone in clothed".

That Tesco ban seems like it would be vastly irritating and difficult to enforce. There is very little difference between what I wear to sleep and what I wear to yoga class. How would they tell if I'm pajama'd or not? Will they require an examination of the alignment of my chakras?
posted by elizardbits at 10:59 AM on February 19, 2010


I cannot think of where I would wear these. I have jeans. They are comfy. I also have a bed I sleep in while not wearing jeans (if need be, I have sleep shirts). The two are not compatible.

Also that People of Walmart link is scary. I used to worry that occasionally I was a bit too shlubby going out for a quick run to the grocery store. I have a ways to go yet, it seems.
posted by sandraregina at 12:05 PM on February 19, 2010


I could think of where I'd wear these. I've had enough ridiculously long plane trips involving multi-hour layovers to think I could use a pair of pajamajeans for comfortable travel.

Don't get me wrong---I still believe they're kind of stupid. But I could see how someone would buy a pair for slightly less pathetic reasons than even the pajamajeans website could come up with.
