International Sweatpants Day in Richmond

If you’re riding the Canada Line and notice more transit users wearing sweatpants today, there’s a reason why.

Jan. 21 is International Sweatpants Day and although the article of clothing is not necessarily work-appropriate (depending where you work), the student population can often be found wearing them in Richmond and throughout the Lower Mainland.

Richmond’s forecast for rain may not go well for people wearing sweatpants this week; however, they can still bring comfort to people wishing to stay warm during the winter season at home.

In 2018, Air Canada teamed up with Canadian brand Roots and gave away free pairs of sweatpants and hoodies to over 250 passengers on a flight from Vancouver International Airport to Melbourne in celebration of International Sweatpants Day.
