Why? Because I respect anyone that trains any combat sport. If I get a hesitation I know they're just a poser trying to look cool.

To answer the Tapout question... I don't want to wear such a commercialized product... if I wear Nogi, etc. only other people who train will recognize it.
I like Warrior Wear myself. I'm about to buy a hat and some T-shirts from them.

I've never seen anyone around town wearing fight gear, so if I did, I'd definitely ask them if they train. I wouldn't think it was a big deal if they didn't train, but I definitely think they'd be better off wearing the fan-type stuff (i.e. fighters' custom shirts by Affliction, UFC and Pride shirts, etc.).
