If there is one brand that needs no introduction on our list, it’s Hanes. Hanes keeps things simple with this jogger sweatpant.

The largely cotton fabric (97%) has a touch of spandex (3%) added, providing a fair bit of stretch for comfort. Available in several colors and priced under $25, they’ll work well for most budgets.
