in praise of prana pants

January 23rd, 2006


At some point in every guy’s life, they reach a time in their “career” where it might behoove them to stop wearing jeans to work. And even if you work in a downtown loft with high ceilings, huge windows, and exposed brick walls, to which you bring your dog to sit bored near your feet whilst you slowly rotate on your Aeron chair, rubbing your sexily-stubbled chin, tapping your glass desk and peering down your thin rectangular spectacles at a 37″ flat-panel display — it still might be in your best interest to not to be sporting ripped and faded jeans every damn day of your professional life.

That’s where Prana pants come in. They are comfy, they are reasonably stylish, and they have lots of nifty pockets. But what they are not is important: they are not jeans, and what’s even more important — they are not Dockers. And most important on top of that: you can wear them to work and not feel like a khaki-wearing sell-out wanna-be business-guy douche.

    Ah! Perfect for the I-am-not-quite-a-sellout-yet-I-must-wear-something-halfway-respectful-to-work conundurm with which I have struggled so long! My only regret is they don’t seem to come in Women’s Extra-Small Short — known to the PC as ‘petite’.

    I want to point out that I am referring to “prana pants”, and not “pirana pants”, which are something quite different. QUITE different indeed.

    Oh. Never mind then.

    Ummmmm….do they come in 65″ waist? A’la Peewee’s obsession with large underpants? As a desk jockey of some 15 plus years, I’ve kind’ve let the flabby get out of control.
