    I would define trackies to be made of fleece/velour.

    I'm with Sonja on the jeans, pulling them on feels just like coming home. I can even lie down and have an afternoon nap in them quite happily. Unlike Sonja, I don't spend much on my jeans because I get the from Target when they have a sale.

    When I'm pregnant is when I wear jeans the most, because the maternity ones have an elastic waist with material to cover belly. I wish I could continue wearing them now, so comfy!
    Jeans are my 'trackies', ie. I put them on if I just want to curl up and watch a movie. All of my jeans are skinny leg and have a variety of waist lines. I have a dozen pairs mostly from jeanswest, wrangler and sass & bide.

    From wiki:

    Tracksuit bottoms are usually made from cotton or polyester, and the chief characteristic distinguishing them from other athletic pants is the elastic band located around the waist.

    I don't think the fabric disqualifies them as trackies.
    I think that's bollocks. I have drawstring/elastic waist pants that in no way could be confused with trackies.

    True, I've got 2 pairs of linen pants with drawstring. Linen is not trackie-esque.

    Then I'm a PJ girl because I love my harem and tapered pants these days!!

    I was always a jeans girl but I'm so sick of them now... Prob because I have to be so careful what nickers I wear with them, and they're just not nearly as comfy as my pants are....

    So I've been getting around town in my PJ's it seems but meh, I love em
