Introducing Color Match Sports Apparel by Humble Sportswear

Are you tired of struggling to find workout attire that complements your skin tone? Look no further! At Humble Sportswear, we're revolutionizing the way you dress for your workout with our innovative minimalist Color Match sports apparel.

What is Color Match?

Color Match is a groundbreaking concept that we've introduced exclusively at Humble Sportswear. It's all about finding the perfect sports apparel that enhances your natural beauty by matching it to your specific skin tone. We use the Fitzpatrick skin tone chart, known for its accuracy, to determine the ideal hues that will make you look and feel your best during your workouts.

Fitzpatrick Skin Tone Chart 

The Fitzpatrick skin tone chart, also known as the Fitzpatrick scale or Fitzpatrick skin typing test, is a widely used classification system for human skin color. It was developed in 1975 by Harvard dermatologist Thomas B. Fitzpatrick as a way to categorize various skin tones based on their response to ultraviolet (UV) light exposure.

The Fitzpatrick scale categorizes skin into six different types, ranging from very fair to very dark, based on the individual's genetic predisposition to tanning and burning. The classification takes into account factors such as skin color, eye color, and hair color, as well as the individual's tendency to develop sunburns or tan when exposed to sunlight.

The Fitzpatrick scale is widely used in dermatology and cosmetology to assess an individual's risk of sun damage and to determine appropriate skincare and treatment options. In the context of Humble Sportswear's Color Match sports apparel, the Fitzpatrick skin tone chart is used to accurately match customers with sports apparel colors that complement their unique skin tones, ensuring a perfect fit and enhancing their overall appearance.

Using our Find Your Tone chart, which can be found under each product description on our website, you can quickly identify your skin tone type. Simply match your skin tone to the corresponding color category on the chart to unveil the colors that will complement you the most.

Here are the six categories of the Fitzpatrick scale:

  1. Type I (Very Light): Always burns easily and never tans. Typically, individuals with Type I skin have very fair or pale skin, light eyes, and light hair.

  2. Type II (Light): Burns easily and tans minimally. People with Type II skin usually have fair skin, light eyes, and light to medium hair.

  3. Type III (Medium): Sometimes burns mildly and gradually tans. This category typically includes individuals with fair to beige skin, often with blue or green eyes and blonde or light brown hair.

  4. Type IV (Moderate): Rarely burns and tans well. People with Type IV skin typically have olive or light brown skin, dark eyes, and dark hair.

  5. Type V (Dark): Very rarely burns and tans deeply. Individuals with Type V skin often have dark brown skin, dark eyes, and dark hair.

  6. Type VI (Very Dark): Almost never burns and tans very easily. This category includes individuals with deeply pigmented skin, often with dark brown or black skin, dark eyes, and dark hair.
