    Unless they're carrying a sign saying "I'm not going to/from class" I'd never know. Because I'd see them and go about my business.

    I saw a guy in the ER a few years ago who came in wearing one of those Star Spangled uniforms from the 70's or 80's. He wasn't wearing it for class. He was homeless and got it cheap at the Goodwill store. Complete with white belt, which he was wearing tied in a bow.

    Again, read over the thread. This specific statement has already been hashed out several times now and, in fact, has been show to be false. Many people do, in fact,"wear a gi when they were going to/from class."

    No offense, but you are way behind the curve here.

    This thread came back into my mind today. Stopped by CVS on the way home from class to get some emergen-c, was wearing my gi. I thought about the thread, and paid attention to if anyone looked at me funny while I was in there. As far as I could tell, not a single person gave me a second glance.

    suppose it depends on the store, area, time of day, there a good few people round here that go shopping ussualy at night wearing their PJs, nighty, dressing gown, in that company no one would give you a,second look, they would just think you had a karate PJs on. In one of the city centre stores, security would escort you out

    Impossible...you must've had the whole shop stop and stare at you the whole way round and then challenged to a death match from a grandmaster for daring to defy the martial arts code lol123
