    It is if you're not planning on doing some kind of sport.

    Shorts for sport summer or winter, trackies I'm just not a fan of, joggers for lazing about in the house or going to the gym.

    Why worry what other people think, i wear joggers and shorts all the time.
    Every1 knows joggers are more comfortable than jeans but they are too scared to wear them because they might get called a chav.

    Jogging pants are the thicker more woolen/cotton type feeling things
    Trackie bottoms are the plastic things that Lacoste dominated a few years ago.

    I don't mind trackies, but the sweatshirt material ones are better I always wear superdry joggers, the Nike ones look nice on lads.

    I love the sweatshirt ones, especially on guys, as long as they're not those polyester ones then wear them with pride. as for the shorts, you should probably invest in some plain ones, i'm not a fan of football shorts, look abit daft unless you have really really nice legs!

    it's a shame chavs have made tracksuits their official uniform, i'd wear them if they weren't associated with them.

    I only ever wear either baggy shorts or jeans :/ I have to say when I see someone wearing joggers around town I think trendwhore and when I see someone wearing football shorts I wonder why they didn't grow out of wearing football stuff when not playing football when they were 7.

    I wear tracksuit bottoms and football shorts at times, but for comfort, not just for sport. If that means a narrow-minded person who lives a label-defined life brands me 'chavvy', more fool them. Also, I don't care, I'm comfortable.

    And by the by, tracksuit bottoms does not automatically equal 'chav'. You just can't define a person by what they wear. If you do, it says something about the kind of person you are. Just think about the logic you are using if you think along these lines.

    Lastly... who cares if someone thinks you look 'chavvy'? It isn't going to have any impact on you, your life, or anything at all. Life is too short to give a damn.

    I guess it depends on what you like wearing.

    IMO they look silly and are uncomfortable... like wearing swimming shorts that are too small for you.

    I wear sport shorts for the gym, that's about it.
