History and Significance

In the 1920s, Emile Camuset introduced the first pair of sweatpants who is the founder of Le Coq Sportif. These pants were invented for athletes to run and stretch comfortably. Earlier these pants were simple grey knitted pants, however, companies like Nike have improved the variety. These sweatpants have become available in various attractive options as well. International Sweatpants Day was introduced to make people understand that wearing sweatpants need not necessarily be embarrassing.
