    So far as sports are concerned, their normal clothes. There really wasn't any organised sport as we know it until the end of the 19th century and certainly not the mania for 'sports wear' that we have today. The few exceptions to this, in the UK, were horse racing when jockeys would have worn some kind of colours, as they wear 'silks' today, cricket which was developing and played mainly by gentlemen in shirts and trousers, and boxing/wrestling where they merely stripped down to their trousers.

    So far as work clothes were concerned, again there wasn't the differentiation that we have today between work/leisure/sports clothes. They may have had one change of 'best' clothes for going to church in on Sunday. Men may have worn leather aprons if they were, say, blacksmithing and possibly nothing if they were involved in something hot and dirty like coal mining. Agricultural workers tended to wear an overall 'smock', a bit like a dress.
