Intriguing.

How and where are you changing into your pants aboard the plane? It has to be the lavatory, right? You're not wearing your shoes whilst you change, are you?

Didn't mention this the first time around but since someone bought up flip flops...

Toe socks are excellent for long flights. My feet tend to get cold but I hate wearing socks because they don't give my toes enough wiggle room. I've been doing the toe socks + flip flops thing for a few flights now. It does look pretty stupid but I don't care that much.

There's no excuse for wearing sweatpants. Have some dignity.

I don't ever wear sweatpants except when I am getting ready for bed or making my kids French Toast on Sunday morning. Jeans are not that uncomfortable. I don't take as many 10+ hour fights as does Globe, but I take some, and I definitely take a lot of coast to coast flights. I mean, you can sit in jeans or big boy pants all day. What makes a flight so different?

Not sure if statistically significant, but dressing well has gotten me better service

I find this to be true. I always wear dark jeans, oxford or chambray shirt, blazer or sport coat, and easily removable shoes (for security checkpoints). Even for 10+ hour flights.

Jeans and a polo for me.  Comfort is a priority especially if I am trying to sleep.  I can usually find an arrivals lounge, gym, or something if I want to shower and change after the flight.

You guys are nerds, I do 10+ hour flights twice a month and I wear nothing but sweatpants, sneakers, and fleeces. I change into a suit and brush my teeth at the airport.
do you guys sleep in stiff jeans, button-downs, and blazers?

I've seen that as well, gross!! Seems to me that flip-flops or slippers are the ideal thing to be wearing on a long haul flight. That's what I do, put them in carry-on and change during the flight. After all one doesn't normally sleep wearing formal shoes.

Second, consider wearing flight socks to help aid circulation of the blood during the flight. Ensure that any shoes that you may have on are not too tight as this can make circulation a little harder. Consider taking shoes off.

BTW on long distance sleeper buses, that have bunks not seats, they make you take your shoes off when boarding the bus and provide disposable paper slippers on request.

I wear my sunglasses at night because the sun never sets on being badass.

I'll admit most of my flights aren't 10+ hours, but I have no problem with a 6 hour flight in clothing a man can wear in public without being ridiculed. If your regular clothing is so uncomfortable then that's probably because it doesn't fit properly, not because of any inherent uncomfortability in those items you mention.

I've seen this a few times. It's almost always giant fat people with poor circulation who require that they take their shoes off. Of course, since they are giant whales their feet stink to high heaven. I've been successful in moving to an empty seat the few times I've been stuck next to one. I fear the day I'm on a booked flight and some leviathan decides to free up his toesies on a long flight. You might see me on the news that day.

I wore my dior 19cm when I flew to Europe and didn't have an issue with them at all. Jeans really aren't as uncomfortable as some make it out to be. Sure, sweats would be more comfortable, but those stay at home. If anything's going to be uncomfortable, it's going to be having to sit next to some butterball gent with a foul BO.

Provided I'm not flying for business, I just wear the same thing I always wear: jeans, t-shirt/henley, sneakers (that slip or have zippers) or boots (side-zip or pull-on). I have a five-hour flight tomorrow, and it'll probably be an AA henley over an Alt A v-neck, Diesel jeans (still trying to see what I can get out of the turbo denim), MMM GATs (laces in, but loosely tied).

If the waistband on "real" pants is such an issue, you can always discreetly unbutton the top button while you're seated.

I wear lounge pants and a t-shirt + sweater. I love it.
