Top 10 “Comfortable” Cities Buying the Most Sweats

While the runways boast couture and fashions that you rarely see walking down the street, some of the top cities in the U.S. are keeping comfortable in their sweats.

For the second year in a row, the nation’s top per capita consumer of sweats is Philadelphia, PA while New York was seventh, Los Angeles ranked eighth, and Chicago was twentieth.

The top 10 cities for sweats consumption:

  1.  Philadelphia, PA
  2. Hartford, CT
  3. Pittsburgh, PA
  4. Lafayette, LA
  5. Laredo, TX
  6. Boston, MA
  7. New York, NY
  8. Los Angeles, CA
  9. Victoria, TX
  10. Scranton, PA

Perhaps these purchases are travel-related.  Spirit Airlines passengers are the biggest buyers of sweats, followed by Jet Blue, Continental and US Air. Foreign airlines have really high sweat purchase numbers too – especially Asian carriers. On the flip side, Southwest Airlines passengers buy the fewest number of sweat apparel items.
