In a news article last night about dancers at the the Paris Lido I heard a reporter say "en sweat(s) et en basket(s)". The dancers were rehearsing "...les premiers pas d'une nouvelle choreographie en sweat(s) et baskets". What struck my ear and drew my attention was the pronunciation of "sweat(s)" as /sɥit/. French pronunciation of "baskets" does actually rime with the English pronunciation of "sweat" so why don't the French just say /sɥɛt/ ? Following on and related to this, what is the gender and number of "sweat(s)" and do French people use this to describe (complete) jogging suits, track suit bottoms or sweat shirts? (there's also the "tshirt" /ʃɔʁt/ thing).
