Don't really see an issue, think it has a lot more to do with how people carry themselves than what they're wearing.

If I'm at home I'm always wearing tracksuit bottoms. Day to day I live in jeans, but if I decide at 8PM on a Friday I wanna run to Aldi for a few cans I'm not gonna change into jeans and a button down for fear of the average boardsie sneering at me.

If everyone could just do us all a favour and not wear them outside please. For me it's the equivalent of women going around in their pyjamas. I mean make just a few seconds effort and put some grown up clothes on, Jesus.
Not true, this is common in Russia and most of the former USSR:

Are they the ones with the zips up the sides??
With zips slightly opened so the bottoms are dragging along the ground getting torn & muddy.

Usually paired with New Balance trainers!?
I remember those ones. I also remember the ones with the click-close buttons up the sides. Someone would sneak up on you when you weren't looking and yank them open at the sides. I had a pair with either New Balance or High Tech runners in the 90's.
