Combining the stretchy performance fabric of yoga pants with the belt loops, faux pockets, and straight cut of slacks, James has created a hybrid form of office wear "that could easily be worn for a light lunchtime workout and look just as appropriate back at the office." You know, assuming no one notices post-workout smell or the dark gray stains of ass sweat.
The pants, which are the site's most successfully funded product to date, currently run at $79.20 a pair. They will be available to ship in late February.
