Sweatpants have a bad rep. When used for working out, they're acceptable—Rocky would have looked weird if he were training in corduroys. But the minute you step out of the gym, something just doesn't work. It looks like you've "given up."
Outdoor Voices may not be aiming to change the place sweatpants have in our society, but they're sort of doing it anyway. Impeccably tailored to preserve mobility, they're comfortable and, perhaps more importantly, class up the joint a little more than those trusty old Russells. They're also made right here in the USA.
