The name of the top of a tracksuit
I would like to know how do you say this in English:
The top of a tracksuit.= ..........
The bottom of a tracksuit= ..........
I do not know if "jumper" and "trousers" are correct. How do you say that in English?.
Boringly, in England, we would say "tracksuit top", and "tracksuit bottoms".
Although I did check this with my daughter, who actually wears such things, and she tells me that colloquially, a tracksuit is known as "trackies", while the separate parts are known as a "trackie top" and "trackie bottoms".
And you would "want some trackies", in the same way as you want "some pyjamas".
In the US, the bottoms are also called "jogging pants" or "running pants".
The word "trousers" is a bit dated and not commonly used among younger people in the US. You would normally here that word used for people of about 70+ (sorry if I am offending anyone ),
In the US, I call the top a "sweatshirt", "sweat jacket" or just "jacket". The bottom I call "sweat pants" or just "pants". It depends on the material the track suit is made of. If it is thick knitted cotton or polyester/cotton "sweat" fleece I use the "sweat" terms. If it is smooth nylon or polyester fabric, I use jacket and pants.
For the top, I'd use the word sweatshirt or a jacket. The bottom is simply called trousers.
