I don't mean as a fashion statement (although I would like someone to create a flattering gi--I'm so self conscious), but, just being too lazy to change, so you end up wearing it while walking down the street to 7-11, or driving to the coffee place or something?
An instructor of mine once tied her gi so tight she couldn't get it off right away, so she ended up having to ride the bus in it. Of course, people hassled her left and right.
But I see these Mcdojo dorks, and they've got all their little patches and bells and whistles and all that nonsense, and they're just out and about with thier little gis on, and something about it just strikes me as odd. Am I just overly uptight about this? I just don't think it's really appropriate to wear your gi out in public, especially in a city where someone is likely to try and start a fight with you, just because they are dumb as a pile of bricks and want to prove something. The pants are one thing, but the top and the belt are another.
And especially with a white gi--wouldn't you be afraid of getting a stain on it?!

Would you wear your fight shorts in public? And by fight shorts I mean
Canīt say that Iīve ever been in such a hurry that I didnīt have time to change.

I've driven to class in my gi pants on occasion, but going shopping in your gi is just a desperate cry for attention.

That would be an emphatic "no".
I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

Yeah I have gone to the store to get maybe one thing on a rainy day in my gi pants, when nothing else is clean or I just dont feel like looking for it.

The question is the same as "Do you wear your underpands/pyjamas in public?". :)

Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
