    I think it's tacky when I see someone wearing pj's out in public but could live with it, I guess. Well, that said, I think I just saw a new low today when I went to our mall. Someone was wearing a bath robe at the mall. Yes it was a bath robe(only no pjs to go with) the other people I was with noticed her first. Is this a new fashion trend? I'll pass on it and not be trendy (getting to be an old fuddy duddy here).

    It used to irritate my DIL no end that I wouldn't let her go out with me anywhere if she was wearing pajamas...

    Just a robe?

    I haven't been to a mall lately, but I certainly wouldn't doubt it! I'm just waiting for the guys to pull up those ugly, baggy pants-showing their underwear and the girls wearing jeans with holes that show their underwear at the hip pocket! YUCK - not attractive! You are not an old fuddy duddy, just classy :)

    I'm used to the PJs when I'm in a college town. The occupants are usually greasy faced, messy haired and reek of the morning after while shopping for some magical elixir and junk foods.

    That said, I keep seeing PJs in airports and that's freaking me out. Unless you're a still loaded 19 year old, knock it off!

    I'm surprised security didn't detain the bathrobe for questioning and an escort out.

    I agree with plainjane. Once my husband and I were in the food court at a mall. As we sat down at the counter to eat our lunch, three young women came over and sat down very close to us. One of them had on low cut jeans and was wearing a thong. She actually pulled her jeans down much lower and asked the other two if her thong was showing enough while she was sitting. Talk about making one lose their appetite. My husband just shook his head in disgust. I bit my tongue to make sure I didn't make a comment about it. I can't think of a situation where being classy isn't the correct choice.

    When my daughter was a teenager we had our share of battles over the 'sleazy' look that was all the rage at that time. I was particularly down on the shorts and shirts that proclaimed 'Hottie' in big letters. I told her if you really are, then you don't have to announce it to the world. Those that do are 'wannabes'. That's now our code word for anything or anybody that is a showoff or tries to be something they're not.

    You know . . . Last week I also saw a women (mature) at Albertson's who was wearing a robe. I just figured she was either homeless, or had an emergency purchase. It was around 7PM. I sure hope this isn't a new trend. What's happening to our society? Don't people have any pride any more?

    I've been retired for several years now and every day it's still a shower, dress, comb my hair, put on earrings, lipstick and yes, perfume. Many days only my husband sees me. Personal hygiene and pride are still in my daily routine.

    How can you love someone else if you don't love yourself?

    I did not realise that going out in your PJs was also rife in US. It certainly is in certain places here in UK. My boys refer to these peolpe as "The great unwashed"

    I like this description!

    Personally I think the slippers with the jammies really make a statement..... NOT! I'm uncomfortable if I have to have something at the grocery and I have not 'done' the hair and I have street clothes on!

    At least they are covered, I dont care what people where as long as I dont have to look at there behind or the boobs. I saw a gal back in the summer time whos shorts were shorter than her underware, her underware was hanging out the bottom of her shorts. A robe is no different than a coat or a dress. Remember back in the 70's when wrap around dresses were the thing. To me the title of what you're wearing isnt nearly as important as the things you expose the rest of us to. Cute little pjs with teddy bears on them say to me, I want to be comfy while I shop. Your but hanging out or your boobs says "I want some attention NOW"

    NO Way....People are crazy. How hard is it to throw on a jacket or sweatshirt??? Pajamas are bad enough....robes are horrible. Unless you are at the hospital for an emergency. Otherwise you just look lazy.

    Perhaps this person wasn't quite "with it"? Hmmm.

    I'm with Lea, I think, as long as the robe was closed...I just don't want to see anyone's personal business!

    my granddaughters have a thing in their grade school called, Pajama Day." I'm thinking this has been going on for many years now and all across the country, too. Perhaps if you are going to school in your jammies, it just doesn't have the same taboo feeling once you've grown up???

    I was brought up to know the way you dressed let you know the type person you are. PJs and robe at the mall says I am lazy. I don't care about me or you. Take a bath, wash your hair, brush your teeth and hair, put on clothes.
    I agree with others, I do not care to see underwear, butts or boobs.

    Especially when they're holding up their pants from the front! One time there was a teenage male walking towards me at the store, and he was holding his 'package' ahem. I wanted to shake him and say "I bet it's still there! You don't need to hold it - it won't get lost!" Very uncomfortable.

    I've always said that if those teenage girls could see themselves from the rear they wouldn't wear those jeans LOL, The bigger the poor girls are the tighter they wear them...ug!

    I could not even think about going out in public without doing my hair and make-up and a shower! I can be cleaned up and ready to go in 30 minutes.

    Our society shows the young people as slobs and lazy. The pants thing make me sick! I do NOT want to see your butt cheeks, I have my own! I bet they don't want to see mine either!

    Just a pet peeve I have is lazy people who like to show off their inablity to "conform" to society. How sad is this? JMO

    This thread is so hilarious!! Not the topic, but a lot of the comments. Can you imagine if we all went out showing off our boobs or butts??? The young ones would be grossed out and not realize it goes both ways lol
    I haven't seen anyone out in pajamas or robes. I guess I've been in the house too much hahahaha :D

    One time my neighbor, recovering from surgery went to the mailbox with his pj's and a robe, completely decent and understandable. Well, this witch who has sinced moved (thank God) called the police on him. The police were so tired of her and had her number. They did not bother to ticket the professor in his robe.
    We currently are w/o a nosy neighbor on patrol and are all happy :D:D:D:D

    I won't leave the house without shower, contacts, make up, etc. I grew up poor and never had much and I want to make sure my self esteem issues cannot be conveyed to the public.

    My dd has worn pjs to the store. I laughed at her. It was college time- she no longer does it and frowns on others.

    My personal beef- MUFFIN TOP!!! For God's sake girls- fat does not look good hanging over too tight jeans. Buy the jeans to fit or go on a diet.

    Stepping off my soapbox now.

    And here I was raised to believe that actually going out in public with curlers on was making you on the fast track to being kinda trashy. =Okay, I'll admit that at that time a lot of women put their hair "up" rolled on empty beer cans!!
    Now its anything goes, everything shows, and most of it isn't fit for being seen.

    Thank you all! I'm glad I'm not the only one. I did think of the depression angle but it doesn't fit. I could possibly have stretched it if she had been at a drug store but still.....there's a time and a place for everything. As for the underware advertisements, the tight, and the revealing clothes I think their mirrors are lying to them. Oh well just wait till the next generation comes along and those very same people will be the ones saying "what are they thinking?"
