Men used to wear a suit, tie, & hat when they walked outside. Strange how clothing norms change.

While just putzing around the local areas like the mall, starbucks, market, etc. (Encino, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Westwood, Brentwood, Santa Monica, Venice) the percentage is almost just as high. Probably higher on weekends.

I doubt that so many women in other areas like Cincinnati, Atlanta or Little Rock lead as active lifestyles so you'll probably see very few leggings worn in those areas.
You are stereotyping. Leggings are popular everywhere these days. Though outside of affluent neighborhoods fewer will be Lululemon. It probably isn't 90% during the summer inna himid city as they would be way too hot. But they are a staple otherwise across the country.

Sometimes, it is because of technology. I am told the reason why hats went out of style is because of central heating/cooling.

Then there is the other angle of it in getting men to take off their ball caps that they seem to wear everywhere.

On the other side, I wear a bush hat everywhere I go, either on my head or down my back with its stampede strings. The latter got to the point where Mom once said, "Take off your hat and stay a while.".

I heard a theory that it was because the generation returning from WWII service without a Sergeant telling them they must wear a hat or face punishment started going hat less as an act of restored freedom. And as they aged into the 1950s and 60s hat wearing as standard started disappearing. Then in the 70s with team caps began a general comeback with sports and other casual attire being the new standard everyday dress

That doesn't seem to make much sense since it was the norm to always take a hat off indoors--HVAC wouldn't make a difference.

Difficult to say.

Consider this painting

Perhaps I have my centuries wrong where it was the introduction of heating inside of buildings that changed the hat wearing habits of men.

People who are critical and disparaging of others wearing formfitting clothing due to their size and shape are likely to be critical and disparaging of others' size no matter what attire is worn.

I didn't read the rest of this, but I wear workout gear most days because I work out most days. Often more than once a day, so chances are whenever you see me I either just worked out or will be working out soon.

Can't rep you, but I totally agree with this. Some people just need another group of people to bash to make themselves feel better.
