The 'Acne John Pants,' part of the Acne Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, look like long johns with a stylish twist. With two side pockets, an elastic waistband and an easily buttoned and unbuttoned mid section these pants are sure to be quite comfortable.
The Acne John Pants are a great play on an old classic piece of underwear. I wonder how many fashionistos will be jumping on (or should I say in) this trend.
Implications - The fashion industry is not one that is particularly known for its emphasis on comfort. However, designers have recently been recognizing the average consumer's desire for clothing that is stylish and yet, also comfortable. The result is clothing that delivers the best of both worlds, thus making it stand out among the rest of the design world.
