Move Over Mr. Saggy Pants -- Here Comes Ms. Pajama Bottoms
The article explains it all. Who else has encountered this phenomenon?

I can see this evolving into the next fat-bitch craze. Maybe throw in some filthy bunny slippers and some hair curlers.

What's next? Douching in public at Starbucks?

Quote:Put Some Clothes On
By Linda Chavez December 20, 2013 6:50 am

I saw one at the airport on Monday and then another in the elevator on Wednesday. I see them on the street, at coffee shops around town, often at the grocery. Now Obamacare supporters have adopted one as the face of their new public relations campaign.

I'm speaking of adults of both sexes and all ages -- though the style seems to be most popular among those under 30 -- who can't be bothered to change out of their pajamas when they go out in public.

The latest entry into the fashion craze is Pajama Boy, the now infamous, plaid-clad twerp pushing Obamacare on Twitter. At least Pajama Boy is dressed in his onesie only in cyberspace, not sitting on an airplane at four o'clock in the afternoon.

I don't know what irritates me most about this phenomenon. Is it the lack of simple decorum? Or is it the infantilization of our popular culture?

The first time I saw a young woman wearing PJs in public, I assumed she was mentally ill or homeless or both. The flimsy cotton bottoms looked like they'd been lifted from the local hospital and were held up by a tattered drawstring. But she had enough money to order a venti Frappuccino at Starbucks and sit sipping it in her T-shirt and pajama bottoms at a suburban mall. That was a few years ago, and since then the trend seems to have accelerated.

What exactly are these sartorially challenged young people saying? For one, "I make my own rules."

Granted, it is only convention that says we wear one type of clothing for one purpose -- sleeping, lounging around before we go to bed -- and another for a different purpose -- shopping, traveling across country, going to the office. But convention matters.

Humans make rules that govern behavior. (Actually, all species do; ours are simply more numerous and elaborate.) Without those rules, we'd have not only anarchy, but shorter, less pleasant, more dangerous lives.

One of the ways we transmit signals about how to behave is through dress. If we walk into a room full of men and women in formal attire, we don't start doing jumping jacks or get down on the floor for yoga exercises. We don't think it odd to see bikinis on the beach, but we would be shocked to see them in the boardroom. Conventions differ between cultures and change over time, but no society, even the most liberal, dispenses with all conventions.

We've gone from blue jeans in the workplace to pajamas at the mall. What's next? It's hard to imagine we could become more casual in our attire than we already are, but then I never thought I'd see someone in his jammies in line at the supermarket.

But wearing pajamas in public isn't just unconventional -- it's juvenile. It signals that the wearer is not a full-fledged adult. Babies and toddlers wear onesies, so why are we now marketing them to adults? And while it might be OK to see a 3-year-old sitting in the grocery cart in her pajamas, do we really want to see her mother similarly attired? We can excuse the child for not changing his clothes before he meets the public, but his parents?

The message the wearer sends is "I'm lazy" -- and maybe a tad dirty, too. It's hard to imagine someone hopping out of bed and into the shower and then back into what he wore to sleep before heading out the door. Or are we to assume that the wearer has drawers and drawers full of freshly laundered PJs for all occasions?

So maybe putting a young man in red flannel pajamas in order to convince 20-somethings to act responsibly wasn't the most effective visual cue the Obamacare supporters could have chosen. When we depict young adults like infants, we shouldn't expect that they will behave as grownups. If you want to be taken seriously, try dressing the part.

RE: Move Over Mr. Saggy Pants -- Here Comes Ms. Pajamas (In Public)
If I'm not mistaken I think Hugh Hefner does this as well. But he's got some nice PJs.

I get the point though, I can't stand it either. I think its more common with the girls though. Wasn't there an ROK article that touched on this? How this never happens with French girls. Ring any bells?

If you're going to do it do it right. Just like Hefner. Silk PJ's and robe, topped off with an ascot. Otherwise it's just crass.

Hef wears silk as style choice to signal that he's getting so much pussy he couldn't even be bothered to leave the bedroom. The bedroom is his workplace, Playboy is just a magazine he happens to run.


You wearing PJs on the subway signals you didn't shower this morning.


Also - as long as we're talking about fashion disasters - women wearing tights as pants. Tights are not pants. Unless you're a professional dancer or carrying a yoga mat under one arm, there is no excuse. Seriously, I almost considered writing a full article about this. There are fucking fatties wearing tights.

It makes me want to start wearing a tux to breakfast in protest.

I been gone for 2 years due to deployment. As soon as I hit the States in January, I notice women at the airport with tights/leggings/yoga pants. +1 for this fashion trend. Are bishes too lazy to dress nice while travelling? Maybe but as long as I get to see ass walking by and instantly thinking about sex when I make the approach I am happy.

The cycle of disrespect can start with just an appetizer.

A girl wearing PJs in public means "I have 1000 likes from orbiters on facebook and dating sites" She is saturated with dick on demand, her world is online and I guarantee her bathroom mirror selfies look done up.

I work from home and wear PJ's all day. However, I would never, under any circumstances, wear pajamas out of the house.

^^^

PJs at home, while writing or on days you're not planning on leaving the house = fine. No one cares. When I'm in the midst of a writing binge, I won't even shave or shower. But the moment you leave the house, we'd appreciate it if everyone at least pretended to give a shit.

Saw this last night, twice.

Chick #1 with her fat girlfriend and 3 high school bros
Chick #2 with her geeky high school boyfriend/bro

Didn't realize it was a trend. Thought it was just lazy teenagers on a friday night.

It's common in the ATL international terminal discrimination line to see American chicks returning from Europe with their pajama bottoms, 'nighty' shirt (muffin top showing), flip flops, and a pillow. They treat int. flights like a slumber party. Very embarrassing to see foreigners, especially the poor ones, wearing their Sunday best for travel in line with fellow Americans dressed like fucking slobs.

i really see no problem with wearing comfortable clothes on a 15 hour flight, however, 99% of people who wear pajamas outside are not going on 15 hour international flights

the irish trend is not what I expected. There is only one advantage to PJs on girls, expecially without underwear. Incredibly fast and easy to remove
