I got asked to leave at a sears once because the manager said, "we only serve paying customers and homeless people aren't welcomed here." I wasn't homeless, and I wanted to buy a dryer. I didn't make a stink about it and just left because why would I give my money to a place that treats me like that just because I wear old practical clothes?

I've been told frequently I dress like a homeless person though.

I don't dress up per se but I always make sure I'm more than presentable before going out. I never leave home without a shower/shave and clean clothes. Even in the rare cases that I'm really busy and doing a lot of work I'll try to at least change and not look like a complete slob. That's just me though. I don't think it should really matter as long as you're not naked or something. We have a lot of oil field workers here and they always smell like the oil fields and sweat and nobody seems to care. I imagine it can vary depending on the place you live and where you shop. Who cares if someone wants to throw some pajamas on and make a quick stop to the store. I could care less. In fact I saw a really cute lady the other day wearing some doggie pj's and some animal slippers. She was pretty adorable.

They bother me and try to make me buy stuff.

This is usually why I am in and out of a store, or I preorder online and pick it up at the store. I've had a couple restaurants where the waiter/waitress would switch out because my previous time there they got a nice tip.

Some stores/shops I frequent kind of know me or recognize me, no matter what I wear, so it doesn't really matter - I pretty much get even treatment anywhere, except for the oddball crap service places I end up going to.

This does happen to me sometimes, some people just don't like what I wear. I've taught myself to stop looking around too much. What I can't see can't really hurt me even if they are giving me dirty looks.
