    Glad to see you’re getting other folks on the Get-Ups!

    I’m not sure I will ever support the jogger fad. I really think (hope) this is a temporary trend. I like the look otherwise!

      They’re unlikely to be a long term trend (more than 5+ years), like most things they come and go.

      I would fully support this Get Up with regular Chinos. I just can’t get behind joggers. But the colors and other styles are really nice.

    I need more joggers in my wardrobe. I know people either love ’em or hate ’em, but I’m a fan.

    I enjoy the getups. Issue is skinny pants. Will never see me in them. Although I’m fit my shape is not skinny.

    Any recommendations on regular fit joggers?

    I feel like I could step up my gym clothes a bit, could you do a gym Get-Up?

      You bet, that’s a great idea.

    I’m still super hesitant to try joggers. I have pretty atheltic legs and I’m just not sure they’d look right.

      Following up on that, maybe switch for some slim fit chinos?

    The jogger trend seems for younger folks. As a 33 yr old from a more rural state I don’t think it’s much of a thing I’m going to jump on. He also seems way cooler than me. The outfit looks good on him though. H&M has some cargo pants that are slimmer fit but not crazy skinny that i ordered recently. Those seem like a good alternative.

    Are there any brands that make joggers in a regular fit or relaxed fit? I have thunder thighs and slim just won’t even work

    Not bad! I’m still on the fence when it comes to wearing Joggers, I find it difficult to use them in any setting other than actually jogging but i’m warming up to the idea. The only thing about this Getup that I absolutely can’t stand and will never consider doing is the hat. I get the casual feel that you are going for here, but to me I can’t justify grabbing any form of brunch wearing that hat. Other than that, not a bad Getup!
