But my question is, would you?
I mean, really.
Not to sound snotty, but do adults really need to be that cozy at all times of the day and night? Are we grownups or oversized babies walking around in need of constant comfort? Sometimes, I'm not sure. Besides PajamaJeans, people are buzzing about Jumpin Jammerz, a line of footie-style pajamas for adults. If I saw a man wearing a pair of those the way actor Ryan Gosling did on the Ellen Degeneres show last month, I'd cross the street. Next, they'll be bringing back baby bottles for grownups. Scratch that, that fad already came and went.
"We love to be as comfortable as possible. Every year we get more and more casual," pointed out Marshall Cohen, an analyst with NPD. "We love to be able to be comfortable. We love to be able to buy clothes that fit us on a good day or on a bad day.
"We threw structure out of the window a decade ago," he said, referring to the rise of business casual. "It's all about being casual and comfortable."
Besides, stiff, ill-fitting clothing is so last century.
"I hate jeans, to be honest," said Jessica Boyington, a model and former Daily News Sexy Single who makes an appearance in the PajamaJeans infomercial. "They make me feel fat. If I could, I'd wear sweats every day of my life. You want stretchy stuff."
She's right about that.
Boyington has a great shape but not everyone is built for the booty-hugging jeans you find on sale at most mall stores. Take me, for instance. I'm nowhere near fat, but I have struggled to get into certain brands. Even if
you're overweight, no one should have to lie flat on a bed just to zip their jeans - nor should their price equal the equivalent of a car payment. At $39.95, PajamaJeans are a whole lot cheaper than designer jeans and the makers even throw in a free gray T-shirt.
OK, I'm snickering again.
PajamaJeans are 2011's version of the Snuggie. I'm intrigued at how quickly this product has caught on since its introduction a year ago.
"Everybody's looking for the next big thing," Rick Cesari, the mastermind behind the marketing of the George Foreman Grill, OxiClean, and the Sonicare toothbrush, told me yesterday. "It's new. It's different and it strikes a chord with the viewer. Obviously, there's an unfulfilled need out there."
Speaking of unfulfilled need, the PajamaJeans folks plan to start selling their product for men.
