What's Up with Pajama Jeans?

$48 for pants pretending to be denim is kind of steep

Jeggings schmeggings! Whether they're jeans that look like pajamas or pajamas that look like jeans, everyone's talking about Pajama Jeans.

Don't let the name fool you -- they're different from jean leggings. They don't have zippers or buttons. In fact, they're not even jeans! Pajama Jeans' secret is in their fabric: a combo of cotton and spandex. "Together, they do what ordinary jeans can't do," says the lady on the commercial.

However, they "pretend" to be jeans with their stitching and back pockets, so you can fool everyone else. It's your little secret, we're guessing.

See for yourself:

After careful review of the commercial (because I'm not actually going to splurge on these), I gather Pajama Jeans are for women who want their lady parts to sleep all day and night. I just can't see how any potential love interest could find these attractive… Unless, they too, have a pair. (Do they make them for men?)

Trust me, I like comfortable clothing as much as the next girl, but you can buy four pairs of sweatpants and a diary to write out all your sad thoughts in for the cost of one pair of Pajama Jeans. They're $39.95, plus $7.95 postage and handling! Wow -- $48 for pants that will make it seem okay to eat that entire Entenmann's crumb cake? I'll refrain from the pants -- not the cake -- and just wear my (err) pajamas.

What do you think? Are these pants "where style meets comfort"? Or, are they "where 'I've given up' meets a 16 Kids and Counting Friday night marathon"?
