Item of the Week: 3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Sweatpant





I didn't think I needed leather sweatpants in my life, until I met these in Seattle last November. At the time, they were an unaffordable $1350 and now that are slightly less unaffordable at $945. I never got behind the sweatpant with heel look, but these are leather (or "leatha!" said in Joan Cusack Working Girl voice), so a whole different animal. 





They are perfect, non? The comfort of sweatpants, paired with sex that is leather. 

$945 at Shopbop (size 6 only) and Totokaelo (all sizes)

If you buy those (and wear those) you will be my new sartorial hero. But I will need a photo as proof.

Oh gawd, I wish I could afford them right now! Maybe they'll go further on sale?

well.. if you wanted a cheaper version I do believe there's something similar (though for 1/10 the price obvs not the same quality) over at Mango. I saw them first here where they look kind of dressier: http://stylelovely.com/mydailystyle/2013/01/the-first-is-the-last

but over here they look positively rocking: http://stopitrightnow.blogspot.com.es/2012/12/easy-dressing.html

Yeah, those look amazing. We don't have Mango here -- I'll check when I'm in Toronto next month.

Have you seen this brand? ALL LEATHER ALL THE TIME! Super expensive, though.

I don't know Anya...they're still sweat pants!

LOL!

Wow. Never heard of them. Those black&white pants on their homepage are leather? Amazing.

No Mango in Vancouver? That's nuts. I could hook you up but I imagine shipping from Spain would be kinda pricey...

Aack, look at these!

Amazing. Don't know if I could actually do it even if I had the dough, but they are super cool.

Oh no worries: I'll be in Toronto in a couple of weeks.
