'workout garments' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't tell whether this works.

'father wearing set wasn't relaxed' is the wordplay.
'father' becomes 'pa' (pa is a kind of father).

'setwasnt' with letters rearranged gives 'sweatnts'.
'pa' put inside 'sweatnts' is 'SWEATPANTS'.
