History of International Sweatpants Day
The International Sweatpants Day is celebrated since the year 2010. There is no exact mention about who or which organization has started such a celebration Day for the sweatpants. However, this Day is celebrated around the closest weekday to January 21st. It is created with an intention to make people understand that one need not necessarily feel embarrassed for wearing the sweatpants. Being comfortable with clothes is not often celebrated, unlike this Day. The first pair of sweatpants was introduced by Émile Camuset, the founder of Le Coq Sportif in the 1920s.
The sweatpants were simply knitted grey jersey pants initially that allowed the athletes to stretch and run comfortably. The sweatpants are usually a heavy knit made from the cotton or polyester. They often have elastic in the waistband that adjusts for anyone and may or may not have the pockets. Sweatpants are traditionally ash grey in colour, however, they are now available in different colours. It is widely used in the schools, sports, etc as it is baggy and loose.
