PHILADELPHIA, PA – The “City of Brotherly Love” has many passions; big ol’bells, cheesesteaks and sports; but there seems to be one more thing Philly is fanatical about.

According to a study conducted by Experian Marketing, Philadelphians love to kick it casual. Folks there buy more sweatpants than any other city in the country.

It’s the second year in a row sweatpants were picked as the favored look, with Hartford Connecticut and Pittsburgh PA sagging behind.
