Men's tracksuits - highly functional and very comfortable
"Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants", said Karl Lagerfeld on German TV in April 2012. Please, don’t worry, because even a world-famous fashion designer – God rest his soul – may be wrong from time to time. Today, a tracksuit for both sports pros and amateurs is essential and offers various advantages. And often tracksuits are – Lagerfeld and his fans might be surprised – visually appealing, too, e.g. the tracksuits at low price at SportSpar!
Fabrics men's tracksuits consist of
Men’s tracksuits consist of two pieces (pants and jacket) and are mainly used for outdoor activities. Tracksuits are sportswear and have to fulfil certain requirements: First-class tracksuits are designed to offer the best possible protection against wind, rain and cold. Besides these weather conditions, a tracksuit must also protect against the athlete’s sweat. That’s why, the fabric that it’s made of has to be breathable. Clothing made of pure cotton absorbs moisture like a sponge – an unwanted characteristic for men's sports pants and sports jackets. Truly breathable fibres used for producing men’s sports pants and jackets are:
- blends of synthetic fibres with a smal proportion of cotton or merino wool (to improve wearing comfort)
All these fabrics move the sweat away from your body and thereby regulate your body temperature. Consequently, neither hyperthermia nor evaporative cooling can disturb your physical well-being. Furthermore, most of the synthetic fibres protect from dirt and they are more resistant to scrubbing and tearing than natural fibres. And they keep their advantages even after several washings – if carried out correctly. Just pay attention to the instructions to perfectly care for your tracksuit.
Tip: If men’s tracksuits have a high proportion of polyester, they are particularly durable. Polyester is a fibre which is extremely non-fading and weatherproof. In addition, we recommend tracksuits made of microfibre (a blend of polyester and polyamide). A tracksuit made of microfibre is light but still offers an excellent thermal protection.
Functions which men's tracksuits fulfil
Some of the functions which men’s tracksuits fulfil due to their quality: they are resistant to scrubbing and tearing, they are weatherproof and breathable. Because of the last characteristic, you can easily wear your tracksuits while and even after exercising. You prefer T-shirt and shorts for exercising? Then hurry up and slip into your tracksuits after you finished your sweaty sports lesson so that your body doesn’t get chilled.
Tip: It’s scientifically proven that wearing functional sportswear (and tracksuits certainly are a kind of sportswear) helps to reduce sore muscles after exercising or a competition because in a tracksuit you’ll keep your muscles warm. Consequently, a pulled muscle occurs less often.

Summary, or tracksuits versus presentation suit
Surely, you’ve already noticed that footballers and other team sportsmen do not only wear their tracksuits for a functional purpose, but also for identification. Matching prints or logos tell their membership. In this connection, we speak of presentation suits. They offer a wider cut and are for example perfect for getting to the sports field, but not for exercising itself. For exercising, you’ll definitely need a tracksuit, not a presentation suit. In any case, you’ll do yourself a favour when wearing a functional tracksuit – it doesn’t matter what Monsieur Lagerfeld said.
