Why wouldn't 'they' know who is wearing them? i'd expect that most clothing purchases are made with credit cards and debit cards, that'd connect
the pants (the rfid) to credit information, which is ALOT of information.
True enough, a person could've bought it for their kids, or someone else, etc, but still, it'd allow tracking of families and circles of people
They probably selected stores that have the highest percentages of shoppers who use cards and such to make the purchases.
They also probably know the basic demographic information about 'who shops' at such and such store, because, even for cash purchases, they take you
zip code, which is information that you've given them and that they can and do use for demographic compiling.
So there's all sorts of things that can do now.
