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?

  • Nomadic D.

    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:

    but over here they look positively rocking:

    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!

    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…

  • Nomadic D.

    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.

  • anya

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

    Joan Cusack would approve!
