As any creative agency will tell you, it's tough to overcome bad branding. So, maybe it's the "sweat" in "sweatpants" that makes otherwise-reasonable folk think of them as unfit for wearing outside the gym. Or, maybe we've all heard one too many bad one-liners about an elastic waistband meaning one has "given up on life."
