Pajama Jeans

Remember all the hullabaloo about a grocery store banning customers who shopped in pajamas? Well, your cries of outrage were heard, dear readers ...

Behold, the PajamaJeans:

The Pajama Jeans sports a bevy of details that make it look like a regular pair of dark wash pants - authentic denim color, high-contrast stitching, back pockets with stitched designs and brass rivets. If I didn't know better, I'd think you were wearing a pair of counterfeit designer jeans you bought from a powerselling Hong Kong dealer on eBay.

However, it really isn't. Unlike real jeans, it uses Dormisoft fabric (a proprietary blend of cotton and spandex) that's both stretchy and cushy, yet gives off a very jersey-like feel. Inside, it's completely brushed, making it as smooth as fleece. Basically, it's really just a pair of casual pants that should be so soft and comfortable, you wouldn't mind wearing them to bed. Like a more stylish pair of mom jeans, probably.

I don't care much about the appearance of others. If they chose to look like idiots, that just adds more entertainment to my day. That being said, I think this is actually an amusing idea.

If they're cozy, that might actually nice. I love jeans, but when I get home they pinch when I sit down. This is fine if I'm in a place where I can easily change, but like... visiting my parents? It might be nice for short trips that don't involve job searching.

Oh yeah @senormysterioso, I also call my jeans "people clothes."

Par example, "Going to the store? Time to put on some people clothes."

Big whoop. If they look OK, why not wear them? Is everyone out there such a fashionista that they cannot believe anyone would want comfy pants that look like jeans?

How about lets all take the time to dress appropriately. But honestly I rather see people in Pajama Jeans than those damn regular pajamas out in public.

People are so lazy. Put some clothes on. If your clothes are uncomfortable, then get some new clothes or lose weight. Everybody wants to be so casual all the time. Just stop getting out of bed then.

The name is stupid but knitted jeans are wonderful!!!

Other people have made knitted jeans but they failed to adequately communicate the wonderfulness of the product and they didn't sell. While I think the name 'pajama jean' is stupid and just encouraging ridicule, it might make the jeans a success. Although I think 'yoga jean', workout jean, 'dance' jeans, etc would work while sounding less stupid. In fact, they could make different designs. People will probably buy one of each.

Anyway, I have pairs of knitted jeans from Lands End and from Sigrid Olsen. I found the Sigrid Olsen jeans in a resale shop and spent hours and hours scouring the web in hopes of finding more. Which is where I found the Lands End jeans, but unfortunately they were on clearance and being discontinued. I wrote to them to encourage them to keep them, but to no avail.

Also, in a resale shop, I've seen a pair of knitted corderoy jeans from Banana Republic, but unfortunately they didn't fit. And I spent hours searching the web for them as well. Lands End has knitted corderoy pants, but they are frumpy elastic waste pants. I may still get a pair if they are on clearance.

Bottom line, these knitted fabric jeans and cords are wonderful no matter what you call them. And you cannot tell they are made of knit fabric unless you touch them or see the underside.

Seriously? These Pajama Jeans are off the charts stupid.

I have 2 pairs, they are comfy but they run a little small and because they look like jeans they lack the drawstring or elastic waste bands on sweatpants so they tend to creep down my hips. I wear mine on the weekends, when I'm not working but may be in and out of the house (maybe a trip to the grocery store), but I would never wear them anyplace significant like the mall, or out to eat. Getting gas for the car, picking up groceries, or after I work out - they're fine.

I saw a commercial on television for Pajama Jeans and though my wife might like these for Mothers Day – if she didn’t at least they were a relatively inexpensive gag-gift. I didn't catch the name of the company who was advertising the pants, only the name of the product. I went online and searched for "Pajama Jeans" and found many reviews. After reading some amusing comments and reading that several people had paid $39.95 for a pair I finally came across the website for pajamagram.com where they were being sold. To my dismay, the price on the website listed a pants and t-shirt combo at $59.95 - much higher than what other people had paid. Because I have experience in the textile business I’m confident the shirt they were offering did not cost them over $3.00 wholesale - hardly a good package deal for the buyer.

I was hoping that there was a mistake and that I might be able to buy the pants separately without the t-shirt "deal" so I decided to call pajamagram's 800 number. After reaching a less than accommodating order taker and explaining to him what I saw online vs. what the price was on the website, he confirmed that the price was $59.95 and said that the $39.95 price was just a "promotional" price. He tried to convince me how nice they were and that the price was a great deal.

First of all, there is absolutely no way I would pay $60 for a pair of pajama pants that I cannot see in person. There is too much risk in buying something that may end up being horribly made. I believe the pajamagram company is jacking up the price specifically to take advantage of Mothers Day buyers. I have decided to buy something I know she will like instead and wait for these pants to be knocked off, renamed, and sold for $29.95. I figure by October the late night infomercials will start rolling them out just in time for Christmas.

Adults can wear what they want, it is no one else's business what any one else wears, and besides they dont look tacky. There are countries where wearing dresses is the norm for men so who cares if someone wants to sport pajama jeans

I had seen this commercial on TV a month ago or so and only saw good comments online about it. Today, I decided to order a pair of the jeans. First of all, the website is poorly done and one of the links to order doesn't come up. Finally, i manage to come up with an order form that is confusing, it asks me for a second size and all i can figure out is that they need a second size in case they're all out of the first size so I put in a second size. I fill in my credit card info and click on the next arrow only to find out that I've ordered two pairs of pats and $31.80 in handling fees for a total of $91.70. I was never warned that i wouldn't be able to double check my order. I looked for an email addy to complain to and found nothing. When i tried to call them on one of their 800 lines I was informed that the order would be practically shipped over night. I tried to call Custmoer Support but it's a holiday. I could reach someone if I tried to order another pair, I'm sure but I have a feeling that they'd just say i'd have to complain Monday and it's not their problem.

The pants cost me $29.95 because i saved a little money for attempting to leave their website, it was supposed to cost $7.95 for s/h and now they've managed to charge me $91.70 for something that should have been approximately $38. These pants had better be worth it. Oh, also, they keep putting up these options you have to purchase stuff before you finally order your jeans, you have a chance to order a stupid pillow for only $15 and when you click on no you next get a chance to buy some jewelry so when you finally click on that you impatiently click on no again and they've got you, you've ordered two pairs of pants when you wanted one and double the amount of s/h with no address to complain to. Fortunately, there are places the consumer can complain to online and perhaps the TV station where the ad was played. BEWARE.

I hear a lot of comments about people who would wear these being lazy, and it's as bad as wearing pajamas out of the house, and frankly it's pissing me off. I haven't tried this product but it would make a huge difference in my life as I suffer from a nickel allergy. So all belt buckles and zips and rivets and buttons on the jeans makes me suffer an allergic reaction, making life as a teenage girl hell. What teenage girl doesn't want to wear jeans? Jeans are a style that never goes out of trend. A pair of pants that look like jeans without the harsh metal zips and buttons? To be able to actually wear jeans? Yea, I think I'd give them a go. For some people, it's not just about the comfort/slob feeling of pajama pants, it's about being able to wear something that looks like jeans when you aren't able to wear actual jeans.
