Grey sweatpants… they’re the black leggings of the men’s department.

When you think comfort, if it’s not the grey sweatpants that spring first to mind, then we need to let you in on the not-so-well-kept secret. That's before mentioning how flattering a pair of grey sweats can be...

Long before lockdowns catapulted us into a permanent state of coziness, activewear was already a fully-fledged member of most men's wardrobes.

Whether it’s a sweat-wicking top for the gym, a comfy travel tracksuit, or the baggiest sweats for your chill days, you know the importance loungewear has in your closet.

That’s why we’re here to give you the roundup of the best grey sweatpants you can shop from us, from fleece-lined numbers to heavyweight cotton champions, we’ve got a pair of grey sweatpants for just about every occasion.

So forget savoring your one pair of nice joggers for a rainy day, feel your best in every pair of sweatpants you own with this stellar lineup.

What's The Difference Between Joggers And Sweatpants?

Typically, sweatpants are made from a cotton blend or heavyweight cotton fabric and often feature a fleece lining which makes them perfect for lounging in. Joggers on the other hand are more lightweight and breathable and are made from synthetic materials like nylon, spandex, polyester, and elastane. The lighter feel to joggers makes them ideal for working out in, whilst the more tapered look can be easier to dress up. Sweatpants are typically worn as loungewear, for traveling, or as a pump cover.
