But plain yoga pants and a simple t-shirt can not be compared to PJs with teddy bears or superheroes or what not that some adults dare to wear in the public eye! People should have some respect, at least for themselves.
Moreover, I can't imagine wearing my sleepwear to the store then go back to bed still wearing them. Yuk!

I saw lots of people in flip flop, tank tops and shorts. As a new citizen, I felt like throwing them out of the country, a minute before they become legal citizen.
You are the one I welcome. Becoming a citizen is not a casual incident. So many who take it for granted have become lazy.

Updated: this trend has spread to school/university places.
You don't have to dress up to the 9 for grocery shopping, ggumbo; however, don't put on sleepwear for grocery shopping. Casual clothes will suffice.
@oh-eve: should have seen what Hialeah residents worn on the sworn-in ceremony that I attended.

Ha! My first declared major in college was Dairy Science and I had a 4am class twice a week. Yeah, crazy, I know. Most of us ended up wearing pjs and uggs with a sweatshirt to class and if things ran long I'd end up wearing that outfit to my next class. I wore cheapo pjs because I'm super tall and even a 'cheap' pair of jeans 10 years ago with a 36" inseam were $100+ and I didn't want to ruin those with cow crap while milking/mucking in the am. It was a polytechnic University with a huge Ag department so it wasn't out of place to be in a physics classroom and smell horses

Man, that just brought back some awesome memories

and that is perfect attire for the location.. yesturday I went to macys. almost bought these very soft almost flannel jeans with little deer on them- the pajama look! they didn't fit although they might have my 15 yrs gd- I did not buy them because I'd wear them round the house with some big Tshirt- but she'd wear them to school... not wanting her to even start thinking that way.

For people who think dressing nicely to go to the store to grab some milk is a vanity thing I have to ask with all sincerity- were our grandparents vain? Because they would never go to the store in pajamas. To those who think that perhaps all the people wearing pajamas to the grocery store are sick- what about our grandparents, did they never get sick? Our grandparents would have been properly dressed, sick or not. And to those who say they spend all their time with their children so they are not going to wear nice clothes- Again what about our grandparents? They had far more kids than the average parents are having today but they did not dress like slobs. My own grandmother had six children and she wouldn't be caught dead out in pajamas and I'm sure your grandmother wouldn't either. And fyi- my grandmother wasn't a woman of means by any stretch of the imagination. And for those who say these pajama wearing people have no time to dress in proper clothes- Again, what about our grandparents and even great grandparents (if you were lucky enough to know them)? On average they worked much harder than the person today. Most did not have cars and had to walk, take public transportation. Housewives didn't have washing machines, dishwashers, vacuums etc. Husbands didn't have electric hedge trimmers or motorized lawnmowers, power drills etc. Prepared foods weren't as abundant and most had to make meals from scratch. Food shopping was done by going to the butcher shop, the bakery, the fish market, etc. no one stop gigantic supermarkets for them. What I'm saying is that our grandparents and great grandparents worked hard but they still took the time to get dressed properly, so what gives with our generation?

Move to the southern US states or south west US states it is too hot to wear pajama pants.In 90 degree weather.
