1. I live in southern calif. I have never seen any one in stores here wearing PJs.
Not even in Starbucks.
There is a GYM very close by so folks are naturally wearing their work out clothes ,some even have chiffon tops and skirts they wear over their yoga pants.
I think it's quite tasteful.
I don't wear PJs,but I wear sweats to bed in the event I have to deal with some emergency out side at least I'm partially dressed.
But in public my standard is black T shirt and jeans or Levis and tennis shoes. I wear the same to church as well.
Not many dress up for church any more except on holidays and easter of course ,I never change, much.
Being worried about what some one else is wearing , isn't that a bit like pushing one's atheism ,or faith, on others ?

If they sleep nude, they DID get dressed!

So out of curiosity, is the issue the pattern? The material? The thought that they just rolled out of bed or are about to roll into bed?

If someone is like a previous poster mentioned, wears sweat pants to bed, but went to the store in them, is that a no no or because you can't tell he slept in them then its okay?

If someone wears flannel pjs but takes the time to do their hair and put on makeup, is that okay or does the teddy bear pattern and flannel cancel that out?

People in Shanghai and Hong Kong are dressed way better those in NYC and LA.
I saw many " young women " already maybe in their 30's who were in their pj's in Vanguard and Walmart. Yes, odd because most Chinese women are even usually over dressed ( cocktail dress ) but I guess there are still those who do not care to be under dressed.

Its not all that difficult to slip on khaki shorts or a pair of jeans before heading outside to go shopping. It takes only 30 seconds, and will save you a truckload of embarrassment.

Besides walmart, most other shops in my town feature appropriately dressed individuals. I don't see what the original poster is talking about very often. At the same time, I am aware that such things exist in other areas.
I work at Walmart and, yes, I do sometimes see people in PJ bottoms. It really isn't all that common here though. However, I see these SAME people at the other stores in town as well. Why Walmart gets picked on the most, I don't know. Yesterday I saw two women who were both wearing PJ bottoms. One was 'seasonally appropriate' in Christmas designs and the other for Valentine's. I decided she was either 'early or late'. LOL I'm still waiting for a People of Safeway website.

What will you think if someone wear flip flops and shorts to your wedding, or funeral of your relative? Will you still think "well, it is his freedom"? It shouldn't impact your life either, should it?

.
Since I live in a beach area I would have 2 different viewpoints on this:
#1 Show up at a wedding in shorts and flip flops. Don't plan on getting admitted to the reception.
#2 Show up at a funeral in shorts and flip flops At least you cared enough to show up and show respect for the deceased and their family.

Please consider that the pj wearers don't care about you or what you think is attractive.

When they have "bed head" hair sticking straight up on the back of their head, they get bonus points for authenticity.

I just saw a guy in Lowes 2 days ago with flannel pajamas, slippers and bed head.

WTF is wrong with people? Have they really given up that much?
