    Thank you Greyfriar. Can I use the word in the sentence below?

    "Over the years, he went from 'tracksuit' to 'cowboy'". to mean that he changed his fashion style?

    None of the young men in those pictures are wearing track suits, nor do any of them look like thugs. (Thugs are violent criminals.) Are you referring to their hats, shirts, jackets, pants, or shoes? (And they're different in different pictures.)

    A track suit can't be called casual street wear.

    I want to know the general term for the type of fashion that is much more casual than "business casual", if there is any term for it...

    Thank you again, Greyfriar.

    If there isn't a specific word to describe the type of fashion that is much more casual than "business casual" without any association with crimes, can I just say "casual" for the type of fashion and say for example, "He went from casual to business attire"?

    Thank you.
