With last week’s gloomy weather in Toronto, we admit that we spent probably too much time in the most comfortable item of clothing we own: our Rebus LAZYPANTS™. That’s a designation we don’t throw around lightly. We first featured breakout Toronto-based clothing company Rebus last winter, and the brand’s signature LAZYPANTS™ have exploded throughout North America in the months since. The LAZYPANTS™ lounge pant is well constructed using high-quality fabrics and offers a welcomed return to the sweat pant basics with a sturdy elastic leg band, a thicker premium fleece, quality drawstring and the perfect amount of leg room. These are not your typical sweatpants, they are literally mood-altering the second you step into them and immediately enter the chill zone. They have the power to make you want to blow off even the most enticing plans and stay home. Seriously.
With unmatched comfort and quality, stamped with the brand’s youthful three-bird logo, these “hibernation season” staples been have been worn by celebrities like Cody Simpson, Connor Maynard, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Ivanka Trump, Down With Webster and many others. They’ve become beloved go-to basics among Toronto’s stylish and in-the-know set of young professionals. Thanks to the fact that the thread runs up and down (its all in the detail with Rebus), the LAZYPANTS™ won’t rip or pill and, like a child’s blanket, only become more comfortable with age.
The pants are available in a rainbow-like array of bright, bold colours, or, of course, you can always stick with good old basic grey. Signature favourites include a bright yellow, a dark teal, navy and charcoal. New for the season (and surely a well-received holiday gift) are LAZY French Fleece, LAZY hoodies, LAZY skinnies and acid wash LAZYPANTS. Once you have one pair, you may just start an entire collection. After all, we all deserve lazy days once in awhile.
The product is currently available online at www.lpants.com and in select retailers in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and New York City. In Toronto, they are available at TNT, DEW, Denim, Leigh and Harlow, Holt Renfrew and Out on a Limb. LAZYPANTS™ retail for $80.
Rebus gear is designed by young professionals for young with a goal to capture Toronto’s diversity and style.
