As you know the jogger pant is one of the biggest trends of the season. Every true fashionista has it on the top of her wish list and many already have it in their closet. 7 For All Mankind is a great brand to satisfy your style “hunger” – their Sporty Chino in Coated Black is to-die-for!
I have been wanting a pant like this for quite a while but paying $600+ for a leather one was simply out of the question. As for the more affordable knit styles they are not much different than regular sweats and I really don’t care for them much so I was ecstatic when 7FAM came out with their Sporty Chino. Its sleek, semi-matte coating has that chic, leather-like look that I wanted while the reasonable price didn’t empty my wallet. The 7FAM Sporty Chino only comes in black which is perfect considering the season but I really hope they will have the same style in white for spring; that would be amazing!
The fit of this pant is based on the brand’s Slim Chino, a personal favorite of mine. Inspired by a classic trouser it features slash front pockets, welt back pockets and a traditional waistband with a hook and bar closure. This pant is slightly slouchy throughout the leg but is not baggy and looks refined and sophisticated even in a “jogger” variation. The 7FAM Sporty Chino has quite a short inseam (26.5″) with a fairly wide gathered band at the bottom that concerned me a bit at first. It felt pretty tight and I was worried it would be uncomfortable around my ankle. Surprisingly I didn’t feel it at all and it barely left any marks on my skin after wearing them all day.
The Sporty Chino is made of a 63% lyocell, 35% cotton and 2% spandex blend. It is a fairly light-weight fabric reinforced by a thin coating which makes the pant perfect for both hot and cold weather. The material is somewhat stretchy and gives plenty of comfort while still keeping its structure.
As for sizing you can go one of two ways: either stick to your regular one or go a size down; it all depends on how you like to wear your pants. I really didn’t have many options – my choice was between 23 and… 23 🙂 since my usual 24 was already gone! I actually didn’t mind the slimmer fit of a smaller size but I’m sure I’d love a looser 24 too.
I haven’t been as excited about a pair of pants for quite a while! Super chic and stylish, the 7FAM Sporty Chino will add a breath of fresh air to your wardrobe. They offer a high-fashion look without a steep, high-fashion price which makes them even better 🙂
