I see this as okay, i imagine people who work out when i say sweatpants are okay (even though i don't work out). There is a reason to potentially wear sweatpants out in public, however i dont go out and about to find a bed to sleep in so why where pajamas? It's really a statement on that person's character in my opinion.
I dunno. I guess I'm more of a traditionalist. Gym pants, okay. Sweat pants, okay. Yoga pants, okay. Pajama bottoms, not okay.
As to why? Dunno. Prolly the goofy and mickey mouse that's usually splattered all over the bottom of them. Seeing that on an eight year old is fine. Seeing that on an overweight fifty year old, isn't. "I like Mickey [email protected]" "Wow, do you like eating paste, too?"
Actually, on second thought, I better not ask that of anybody at WalMart.
I'd only equate sweats to pj pants if they're nasty stained gross sweats. Clean pair then no biggie. PJ pants are ok after 8pm in my book. Unless you're deathly sick making a run for cough drops before that you're just fucking lazy.
I put jeans over my pjs despite being 10pm. Had it been a single person fine maybe but it was a couple and the guy had muck boots on. You're gonna lounge in pjs stuffed in muck boots? This is a farming area so they probably get used as intended regularly.
