It has happened to all of us. You see someone who wears sportswear and you think: “wow, he must really like sports” But, what if I told you that sportswear can be much more than comfortable clothes to practice our favorite sport? In fact, in recent years, sportswear has become more than just a casual wear option – it’s become a fashion statement. And as the style of wrestling wear continues to evolve, we see more and more people sporting this trend. Whether you’re into contact sports or not, wrestling apparel is worth considering for your next wardrobe purchase.
Sport wear: the origin
The origin of sportswear is very old, the first vestiges date back to the Egyptians, where in some bas-reliefs we can see men and women practicing sports such as boxing or wrestling with clothes similar to modern sportswear.
The concept of sportswear was taken up by the Greeks, who used it mainly for horseback riding. Also in Rome, physical activity was practiced with specific clothing: for example, senators wore a kind of white tunic called a toga while they exercised in gyms.
With the fall of the Roman Empire, sports activities declined and it was not until the 19th century that sport began to be considered again as a healthy activity for the body and mind. In England, some private schools began to organize competitions between students, and in 1825, the first true sports club was founded: the Marylebone Cricket Club.
At the same time, new sports were born, such as rugby and football, which quickly became popular. The need for specific clothing for these activities gave rise to sportswear as we know it today.
In the United States, meanwhile, physical activity was seen primarily as a way to stay fit and healthy. It was not until the end of the 19th century that American universities began to organize competitions among their students.
The first company to produce sport wear was Brooks Brothers, founded in 1818: their garments were designed specifically for rowing. In 1886, Jockey International introduced underwear designed to support men.
After this, countless brands have arrived, including Nike, Adidas and Puma, which began to produce sportswear for all kinds of sports and activities.
Today, sportswear is no longer just for athletes. It has become a fashion statement for people of all ages and lifestyles and hence the great implantation of the “Fight wear” concept.
Fight wear: T-shirts for martial arts
Fighting and martial arts clothing ( Fight wear ) is a type of sportswear designed specifically for martial arts lovers.
Wrestling apparel is often made from lightweight, breathable materials such as cotton or polyester that help the wrestler stay cool and comfortable during training or competition.
The design of wrestling clothing is often inspired by the styles of trendy tattoos, giving the garments an urban and street look.
T-shirts are one of the most popular items of wrestling apparel and often carry the logo of a particular martial arts school or style. They are often worn with baggy pants, such as sweatpants or sweatpants.
Fight wear is not just for those involved in martial arts but has become a popular fashion choice for people.
This trend has been largely fueled by the rise and popularity of MMA.
Street wear: street, art and style
As we have mentioned, these styles of urban clothing have not been left only for the sports field, but rather it is an urban fashion implanted among young people and not so young people who identify with these trends.
“Street wear” is a comfortable, informal and relaxed way of dressing, but at the same time with style.
It is a style that is inspired by the street and in different fields of art, such as music, skateboarding or graffiti.
Street clothing is often associated with hip hop culture and the rap or trap music scene.
The key elements of this style are comfort and individuality.
The clothes are usually loose and made of natural fabrics such as cotton or denim.
