SWEATS HAVE COME A LONG WAY!

Who would have thought!  Leisure suits and sweats have become a trendy fashion statement.  They can be dressed up or dressed down, wear them with  stilettos, or casual footwear, running around the block, working out in the gym, to a party or shopping, wear them just about anywhere.  Tract suits are here to stay and will remain in the race long after the Olympic are over.
