Ode To The Sweatband

History proves that sporting fabric on your forehead and wrists is as much fashion as it is function.

Worn for sport or for swag, sopping up perspiration or simply making a statement, sweatbands have an uncanny knack for drawing attention, as these blast-from-the-past moments so brilliantly illustrate. Have they had their ridiculous moments? Of course. But we love them because for better or worse, they're ours. A little terry cloth love letter from the fitness community to the world. So on that note, you're welcome. Or, rather, don't sweat it.
