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.
