You never want something until you can't have it. So, each week in The Sell-Out, we're getting the scoop from your favorite retailers on what's selling like crazy. Watch this space to find out what everyone's buying, sign up for wait lists, and keep tabs on restocks.
Remember the world's most amazing hoodie? Turns out that same brand's joggers might be just as "amazing" — because according to American Giant, the sweatpants are selling out fast. In fact, the black version is almost completely out of stock, and even though a few more neutral colors were added to meet the demand, the company is expecting them to disappear just as quickly. So, if you needed further proof of athleisure's longevity, consider this it.
But what's so great about these bottoms? Well, it might have something to do with their seasonal-appropriateness — for chilly spring mornings, they make for an ideal, transitional closet staple. Their construction allows them to hold their shape while still feeling soft to the touch, and that cuff at the ankle actually gives that same flattering effect as your favorite skinny jeans. Plus, with people already loyal to American Giant's hoodies, it makes sense for fans to have faith in its pants, too.
With sportswear so omnipresent at both fast-fashion retailers and on the runways, it can be tough to find a polished-looking pair of joggers for less than a hundred dollars — and these come in at just $59. So click through to shop before your size is wiped clean (or grab one of the alternatives ahead), and give these pants a Sunday-brunch test run for yourself. We have a feeling these are the kind of bottoms you're going to want to live in.
