    Default Pyjamas as day-wear

    The Sunday Times tries to get to grips with this sartorial trend

    Is it a reaction against materialism? A natural development from track suits

    Or

    There is a lot of pressure on young teenage girls to be very sexualised and this is a way of opting out.
    What I didn't know was that it's not that they go out in the pyjamas they slept in but that they change into day pyjamas. Of course like all clothing trends started by the working class it is spreading to the middle class. How long before BT are selling designer day-jammies by Tommy Hilfigger?

    Does your "middle class" not work?

    We'd be talking weekends and evenings I suppose. Like with the track suits. Of course, aside from comfort, pyjamas are the opposite of track suits in terms of what they suggest.

    On the Pyjamas as Daywear? blog, one contributor says: “It’s a welfarist ‘badge of honour’, proclaiming not just that the state funds their leisure time,
    Sounds about right to me. It may not be the intention but it is certainly the impression given by the wearers.

    To me I think any woman wearing them during the day is a slob and needs a right good kick up the Khyber pass. The worst thing is some of them have kids so I wonder what impression it gives when they drop the kids to school in pajamas.

    people who wear pyjamas during the day are pre-dominantly lazy skangers who think that they are ulra-cool and are somehow trend-setters. End of Debate!

    Yaaaaawwwn! Surely there are a lot of other things to worry about than what people wear. Next thing someone will be griping about sarees, kurtas, hijabs, turbans, brown boots ...
