What kinds of clothes do people wear after work?

After the working schedule, people prefer to wear loose fit clothes such as: T-shirt, lounge wear, pajamas and tracksuits. As these clothes make them feel relaxed rather than tight-fitted ones. In working hours, one has to wear formal outfits and want to get rid of them as soon as they reach home.

According to my view, people should wear clothes according to their profession. As every profession demands different dress codes.

Therefore, the clothes of a working person totally depend on his/her work field.
