The innovations in the leggings-as-pants department can't stop, won't stop. In the latest stretchy pants news, Silver Jeans Co. has announced the release of Joga Jeans, a hybrid denim jean and yoga pant that promises comfort beyond your wildest dreams while also possibly passing for regular jeans.
How can such a thing exist? A press release explains how the "radical unisex fabric" is made: "The top is woven like traditional denim and underneath is a plush knit. This revolutionary fabric technology has unparalleled recovery allowing the jean to move with your body without bagging out."

The jeans (pants? sweatpants?) will retail for $78 to $88, and, lest dudes get too jealous, there's a menswear version in the works. For those who can't wait to Joga, the styles are already available for pre-order right here.
