Mercifully, sweatpants have undergone an extreme image upgrade in recent times. No longer the preserve of couch potatoes, gym bunnies and men who are way too keen to show off their junk, the new breed of jogger provides a credible alternative to jeans or chinos.
 
With options that include tapered slim fits and a variety of patterns, they’ve become a lot more than something to lounge about or exercise in (though, obviously, they’re great for this, too).
 
Worn with a longline T-shirt and a pair of chunky loafers (or, if you’re not quite ready for that, some slick trainers), they'll take you from couch to club in the blink of an eye.
