Iconic Canadian brands, Roots and Air Canada, partnered to make a long journey even more comfy in celebration of International Sweatpants Day. The two companies surprised more than 250 customers on Air Canada’s longest nonstop flight from Vancouver, Canada to Melbourne, Australia with a gifted set of Roots signature Salt & Pepper™ sweatpants, hoody and a handcrafted made-in-Canada Roots leather passport holder, bringing Roots quintessential cabin-meets-city style to the airplane cabin.
Landing at 10:05 a.m. in Melbourne, Australia and sporting Roots stylishly comfortable sweats, customers onboard the Air Canada flight will be some of the first people in the world to celebrate International Sweatpants Day in 2019.
