A short history of the jockstrap

The jockstrap as a fashion or, let's just say, leisure item is a fairly modern affair.

As a sporting garment, however, its history is relatively long and well-documented.

But which came first? The jock – as in US slang for a sportsman – or the jockstrap? And the answer is...the garment.

It's generally agreed that the jock in question was a short form of jockey. Not a jockey on a horse, but on a bike. A bike, to be more specific, being ridden across the cobbles of Boston, Massachusetts, in the late-ish 19th century.

So the jockstrap was invented to stop a cyclist's undercarriage from being hobbled by cobbles.

There's also some evidence that 'jock' is much earlier slang for a chap's...chap, but we'll leave that in the past.

All we know is that our jockstraps do the job they were designed for – providing comfort and support for sport, or any other activity.
