I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE
If i go somewhere and see one more damn person outside, at the grocery store,the bank or doctor's office with them funky ass pajamas on i think i will scream.These are clothes made to sleep in or wear around the house. They are not for everyday public wear.Somebody call the fashion police. :dilemma: :dilemma: :dilemma:

With their pants on the ground? That is the question.

3. Don't show up to middle or high school, then.
They're all the rage. I keep waiting for someone to show up in slippers, too.

:rofl:

20. Must have slippers at high school to be cool here
It's a way to be counterculture these days.

30. I sometimes feel bad for current adolescents;
how far can they go to find a way to be "counter culture" after the generations before them?

The "pajama" phenomenon is harmless, imo. I'd prefer that they keep them pulled up so that I don't have to view their cheeks hanging out over the top, but that seems to be asking too much. :silly:

4. If only jammies weren't so comfortable
I'll admit to making late-night fast food runs or picking someone up from the airport in mine, but that's only when I'm sure I'm not getting out of the car.

B-)

5. I was at a store and a girl was wearing her robe, pajamas, and house shoes...
Yeah, I don't like it, but I don't mind it.

scrubs to work for comfort.

7. My high school daughter was sent home from school for pajamas
She complained to me, I said, I wouldn't wear pajamas to school.

But to be fair, the school did not have it in their dress code that pajamas were not allowed. :rofl:

13. I don't know
I surely appreciate Madonna's influence in letting bra straps show without being ostracized by the fashion police.

17. I wear boxers in public
I just assume people think they're shorts.

Well, no I don't.

I just don't care, to be honest.

But I'm not totally asocial.

I keep the floppage as minimum as possible and ensure things remain in a secure location.

34. LOL
I believe that is the accepted compromise involved with wearing them. Public spectacle in exchange for comfort =)

22. Really? I think it's just interesting and unusual.
The only negative I can think of is that doing it regularly takes the fun out of transgression. My kids used to LOVE PJ Day at school and then it was an everyday thing and the delight was gone.

26. Who gives a shit?
Seriously. Who gives a shit?

Anyone that bothered by what someone else is wearing- if that person is minding his or her own business? Has WAAAAAAAY too much fuckin' time on their hands.

27. Ooooooh, you've hit another one of my pet peeves!
One of my friends is a full-time cashier at Publix and she always has the best stories about the pajama-wearin' people. These are middle/upper-middle class women and their skanky teenage daughters who are doing it, too!

My momma taught me better than that!

31. I haven't seen these "funky ass pajamas" you speak of...
Edited on Wed Mar-24-10 07:39 PM by Silent3
...or at least if I have, I didn't identify them as "funky ass pajamas" at the time.

Can anyone show pics of this particular clothing item? Are you just talking about ordinary pajamas being worn in public? I think I've seen that a couple of rare occasions, but nowhere near often enough to have identified it as a trend of any sort.

35. Second your request - Pics, please!
Not sure if this is some new pajama-like loungewear trend, or actual pajamas...

Are we talking about fuzzy sweatpants with matching zipper-hooded-things? I've seen those. Or like actual flannel or cotton pajama bottoms?

32. Saw some at the airport the other day
They were light blue with pictures of clouds and some sort of animal on them (I think they were ducks, but not sure). A man was wearing them...

36. 99.9% of my daughter's high school wear these daily........
otoh, I grew up in the 80's. pajama pants would have been a huge improvement over my style of dress in that era!
