Why oh why do I see more and more people wearing pajama bottoms out in public nowadays? It just seems weird to me that people actually think this is an acceptable look. I just think they look like crazy people. Like “People of Walmart” crazy people. Now, I can understand if it’s the middle of the night and your dog has to take a crap, but seriously, don’t you have a pair of jeans or athletic pants lying around to throw on when heading out to the supermarket, local bodega, or resto to pick something up? This is becoming an epidemic as bad as the idiots I see wearing their pants halfway down their legs showing off their underwear. Is there an island or someplace we can ship these people off too? Oh wait, Manhattan is an island. I guess we are stuck with them and their dress code of stupidity.
Not kidding here but since when did this become an acceptable fashion style? Out to dinner recently we actually viewed some guy in the restaurant wearing lounge pants. Was he too lazy to put on a real pair of pants? Did he see his pajama bottoms and figure that they were stylish enough to wear out in public? Oh yeah, that fleece plaid design is so cool! Maybe I should wear my SpongeBob lounge pants to the movies this week. Even better, maybe I’ll wear my Batman pajama bottoms to work. When someone questions my attire I’ll just stare at them and proclaim “I’m Batman dammit”!
Now here is another mystery of life that I do occasionally view during my travels around the city and sold at some NYC gift and clothes boutiques displayed right outside on a mannequin in full public view – pajama jeans! What the heck? Really, why? The worst thing is when you actually encounter people wearing these pants in public! Do women really wear these things? I can totally understand wearing sweat pants, yoga pants, and athletic pants around the house so why bother wearing a fake set of jeans? What the heck! Is life so hard that people need to wear these when going out and proclaim in defense when questioned about it is that they “are more comfortable”? Hello, you’re not fooling anyone. You look like a clown!
I think it’s just that we have become such a casual society now that many people have become “slobinized” and just don’t care about appearance anymore. Normally, I guess I could accept some of this look out in the suburbs where being a bit more relaxed is the norm, and Walmarts rule the land, but in a cosmopolitan place like NYC it just doesn’t fit. You will never catch me wearing pajama bottoms out in public, or sporting men’s pajama jeans at work.
Yet, I might consider wearing my Batman outfit if out of clean clothes one day…..
Just pray to God, Taco Bell, space aliens, and all things holy that this does not become the next big fashion trend –
