* These joggers were received as a gift from Grana
I got these silk joggers a looong time ago so I really appreciate the fact that Grana still wants to work with me even though I'm not very diligent with my reviews. But better late than never right? Plus these are still in stock over at Grana so luckily I'm not too late with the review. But to be completely honest, I'm a bit 'eh' about these silk joggers. Actually I'm not really a joggers type of person in general, and that's probably why I'm not as enthusiastic about these pants as I could be.
First a note on sizing: I went with their size guide and it seemed the medium would fit me best and I'm glad I went with that size. The elastic waist fit perfectly, though I did think the length was a bit long for my short legs. Since these have elastic around the ankles I tried pushing them up a bit in the pictures below.
What do you think? I think I like it a bit better with some ankle showing, though they wouldn't stay up like that when I started walking around.
Even though I'm not a fan of these joggers, I did appreciate that these silk pants (like all of their silk pants) are made from double layered silk. This particular one is made from silk crepe de chine (the same as their ankle pants) and thus are hand-washable (as vouched by a reader, though I haven't had any personal experience myself). I also appreciate that the waistband of these joggers are sewed with the silk fabric so there's no flipping of the elastic (which is unlike the silk ankle pants and the silk culottes-- the elastic on those flips every time I use the bathroom and it sometimes gets a bit annoying having to straighten it out all the time).
Overall I think if you're a fan of the joggers look then this silk jogger is a great item that combines the casualness of joggers with the luxury of silk. As for me and my short legs, I think I'll stick with their silk ankle pants. You can find all my Grana reviews here and first time Grana customers can get 10% off with this link.
