The Herald reports:
A heated debate has erupted in Gisborne over whether pyjamas should be banned from being worn in public.
The trend of wearing nightwear to the supermarket, cash machine or around the CBD has become more popular recently, annoying some locals who say it shows a lack of self-respect and lowers the town’s appeal.
I’m all in favour of PJs in public!
Gisborne deputy mayor Nona Aston said in her view it wasn’t the council’s place to create a bylaw forbidding sleeping clothes outside of the home.
Gisborne mayor Meng Foon said as long as people were clean, he didn’t mind what they wore. Some people wore “hardly anything”, like bikinis, while shopping in the town.
In Cairns, you’d see guys shopping at the supermarket in shorts only.Tags: PJs
