I'm just offering another perspective - that of maybe not judging others based on their attire, regardless of occasion.
Maybe it's different than the UK or wherever, but I know (or know of) some pretty wealthy people who dress far "less" than the part, whether it's a wedding or a trip to the market. It might be seen as the chav-equivalent by some who don't know any better. And based on my travels throughout the US, I think I live in a very diverse, tolerant area that probably has the least "protocol" when it comes to attire, at least very generally speaking. People do as they please, and others accept it. I can't imagine a dude here getting any blowback on a widespread scale like you describe for wanting to rock a tracksuit everyday.

It has nothing to do with wealth or class...it has everything to do with taste.
You can be comfy and casual and not look like you are heading out to the gym/some light Tennis. I am more casual than a lot of women I know but I make sure my wear is appropriate for the event. There is casual then there is sports wear...a big difference.I was simply trying to suggest comfy and casual alternatives rather than a tracksuit such as lightweight jeans,casual lightweight trousers, polo shirts, t-shirts, tasteful jumpers and so on for men.
I work with families and children from 40-50 different countries, some who rely on food banks weekly and have all sorts of going on in their home lives. I am not judgemental.
In the UK, people wont often shout 'chav' at someone. But they are more likely to mention it when they read about a tracksuited youth in the paper and say 'Oh this chav stole 3 cars' type of thing.
