The sweatpants were simple knitted gray jersey pants that allowed athletes to stretch and run comfortably. DESIGN Sweatpants are usually made from cotton or polyester , often of a heavy knit. They often have elastic in the waistband , and may or may not have pockets. Sweatpants are traditionally ash gray in color but are now available in most colors. They are usually quite "baggy" and loose, making them easy to put on and take off; moreover they have flexibility and comfort. In addition, this design traps less heat than most conventional, lightweight trousers, which may be a disadvantage in some conditions such as cold temperatures and an advantage in others such as body heat –increasing aerobic activities. Warmer varieties can be made from polar fleece

Grey
GREY ( British English ) or GRAY ( American English ; see spelling differences ) is an intermediate color between black and white . It is a neutral or achromatic color, meaning literally that it is a color "without color." It is the color of a cloud-covered sky, of ash and of lead . The first recorded use of _grey_ as a color name in the English language was in AD 700. _Grey_ is the dominant spelling in European and Commonwealth English , although _gray_ remained in common usage in the UK until the second half of the 20th century. _Gray_ has been the preferred American spelling since approximately 1825, although _grey_ is an accepted variant. In Europe and the United States, surveys show that grey is the color most commonly associated with neutrality, conformity, boredom, uncertainty, old age, indifference, and modesty. Only one percent of respondents chose it as their favorite color

Casual
WESTERN DRESS CODES * Formal wear * Semi-formal * Informal * Business casual * Smart casual * Casual * Active attire In the European tradition, CASUAL is the dress code that emphasizes comfort and personal expression over presentation, formality and conformity. More simply, "casual" can be defined as something relaxed, occasional, not planned, or informal. It includes a very wide variety of costume , so it is perhaps better defined by what it is not than what it is. The following are not considered casual wear: * Ceremonial dress such as royal robes and full dress military costume * Formal wear such as white tie . * Semi-formal such as black tie . * Informal business professional wear such as suits and ties. Although it can be considered "informal" in the senses of "not formal" or "suited for everyday use," informal attire actually refers to a dress code much more formal than CASUAL WEAR, a step below Semi-formal wear. Casual wear should be done tastefully. No holes, tears, or stains. Jeans
Jeans
and a T-shirt have been described as the "casual uniform". With the popularity of spectator sports in the late 20th century, a good deal of athletic gear has influenced casual wear. Clothing worn for manual labor also falls into casual wear

Trousers
TROUSERS ( British English ) or PANTS ( American English ) are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately (rather than with cloth extending across both legs as in robes , skirts , and dresses ). In the UK, the word _pants_ generally means underwear and not trousers. Shorts are similar to trousers, but with legs that come down only to around the area of the knee, higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To distinguish them from shorts, trousers may be called "long trousers" in certain contexts such as school uniform , where tailored shorts may be called "short trousers", especially in the UK. The oldest known trousers are found at the Yanghai cemetery in Turpan , Xinjiang , western China, dated to the period between the 13th and the 10th centuries BC. Made of wool, the trousers had straight legs and wide crotches, and were likely made for horseback riding. In most of Europe , trousers have been worn since ancient times and throughout the Medieval period, becoming the most common form of lower-body clothing for adult males in the modern world, although shorts are also widely worn, and kilts and other garments may be worn in various regions and cultures. Breeches were worn instead of trousers in early modern Europe by some men in higher classes of society

Comfort
COMFORT (or being _comfortable_) is a sense of physical or psychological ease , often characterized as a lack of hardship . Persons who are lacking in comfort are UNCOMFORTABLE, or experiencing DISCOMFORT. A degree of psychological comfort can be achieved by recreating experiences that are associated with pleasant memories , such as engaging in familiar activities, maintaining the presence of familiar objects , and consumption of comfort foods . Comfort is a particular concern in health care , as providing comfort to the sick and injured is one goal of healthcare, and can facilitate recovery. Persons who are surrounded with things that provide psychological comfort may be described as being "in their comfort zone ". Because of the personal nature of positive associations, psychological comfort is highly subjective. The use of "comfort" as a verb generally implies that the subject is in a state of pain , suffering or affliction, and requires alleviation from that state. Where the term is used to describe the support given to someone who has experienced a tragedy, the word is synonymous with consolation or solace. However, comfort is used much more broadly, as one can provide physical comfort to someone who is not in a position to be uncomfortable. For example, a person might sit in a chair without discomfort, but still find the addition of a pillow to the chair to increase their feeling of comfort

Tracksuit
A TRACKSUIT is an article of clothing consisting of two parts: trousers and a jacket usually with front zipper . It was originally intended for use in sports , mainly for athletes to wear over competition clothing (such as running shirt and shorts or a swimsuit ) and to take off before competition. In modern times, it has become commonly worn in other contexts. The tracksuit was one of the earliest uses of synthetic fibers in sportswear. Invented by Bruce Lee
Bruce Lee
and a descendant of the tracksuit, the SHELL SUIT, which arrived in the late 1980s, was popular with the hip hop and breakdancing scene of the era. They were manufactured from a mix of cellulose triacetate and polyester making them shiny on the outside, with distinctive combinations of colours. Most tracksuits have a mesh interior which allows the user to wear them without any undergarment such as underwear. This is much like a bathing suit. Many people wear it for physical exercise sessions. A sauna suit is a specialized form of tracksuit made of a waterproof fabric such as coated nylon or PVC that is designed to make the wearer sweat profusely. Sauna suits are primarily used for temporary weight loss

became well known. The fabric can be a very stretchy single knitting , usually light-weight, jersey with one flat side and one piled side. When made with a lightweight yarn, this is the fabric most often used to make T-shirts .

Cotton
COTTON is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants of the genus _ Gossypium _ in the mallow family _ Malvaceae _. The fiber is almost pure cellulose . Under natural conditions, the cotton bolls will tend to increase the dispersal of the seeds. The plant is a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including the Americas, Africa, and India. The greatest diversity of wild cotton species is found in Mexico, followed by Australia and Africa. Cotton was independently domesticated in the Old and New Worlds. The fiber is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile . The use of cotton for fabric is known to date to prehistoric times; fragments of cotton fabric dated from 5000 BC have been excavated in Mexico and between 6000 BC and 5000 BC in the Indus Valley Civilization . Although cultivated since antiquity, it was the invention of the cotton gin that lowered the cost of production that led to its widespread use, and it is the most widely used natural fiber cloth in clothing today. Current estimates for world production are about 25 million tonnes or 110 million bales annually, accounting for 2.5% of the world's arable land. China is the world's largest producer of cotton, but most of this is used domestically

Polyester
POLYESTER is a category of polymers that contain the ester functional group in their main chain. As a specific material , it most commonly refers to a type called polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Polyesters include naturally occurring chemicals, such as in the cutin of plant cuticles , as well as synthetics through step-growth polymerization such as polybutyrate . Natural polyesters and a few synthetic ones are biodegradable , but most synthetic polyesters are not. This material is used very widely in clothing. Depending on the chemical structure, polyester can be a thermoplastic or thermoset . There are also polyester resins cured by hardeners; however, the most common polyesters are thermoplastics. Fabrics woven or knitted from polyester thread or yarn are used extensively in apparel and home furnishings, from shirts and pants to jackets and hats, bed sheets, blankets, upholstered furniture and computer mouse mats. Industrial polyester fibers, yarns and ropes are used in car tire reinforcements, fabrics for conveyor belts, safety belts, coated fabrics and plastic reinforcements with high-energy absorption. Polyester fiber is used as cushioning and insulating material in pillows, comforters and upholstery padding. Polyester fabrics are highly stain-resistant—in fact, the only class of dyes which _can_ be used to alter the color of polyester fabric are what are known as disperse dyes
