Sweatpants are among the most comfortable garments you can wear. Initially, sweatpants were designed so that athletes could keep warm when exercising outdoors in cold weather. These comfortable pants were first introduced to the market by a French designer, Emile Camuset in 1920. Emile Camuset was the founder of Le Coq Sportif. Nowadays, sweatpants have become fashionable, form-fitting, and widely accepted as an everyday piece of clothing. So, International Sweatpants Day, which falls on January 21, was made to embrace our comfiest garment.
So, if you are a sweatpants lover (and I mean, who isn’t?), here are a few ways to celebrate this holiday.
