Don't start wearing "dad jeans" and/or dressing like a frumpy old person.

Great looking leather shoes, updated hair style and eyeglasses, upscale coat or jacket.

Nothing says 'grandpa' like white ankle socks, sneakers or hush puppies, Bermuda shorts, eyeglasses on a neck chain, windbreaker, pot belly and fannie pack. Don't pull those polyester sans-a-belt slacks up too high or down too low. Don't overdo the cologne, more isn't better unless there's vampires or a mosquito/malaria problem.

I think mos men age well unless they have a saggy chin. If so then it's time for plastic surgery.

Considering the OP is in the age group of my Dad, I honestly wonder what makes these guys audacious enough to profess that they are being middle aged

Let's forget about the hair, kemosabes.

0 - 12:
Kids

13-19:
Teens

20-35:
Young male

35-50:
Middle aged

Over 50:
Suck up and admit that you are senile and old.

I guess it's time for all men to pull up their big boy pants and honestly admit that 50 is not and never will be the new 30 or 20.

And we can all go home happy.

I'm 30 years old and I don't consider myself young these days. I consider myself an adult man, though other people address me "young man". And I'm not being humble becoz I'm bald and I carry a monstrous belly and wear grandpa pants. My head's packed with hair, often get asked if I just got out of school, I actually have to convince people I am pushing into 31 this year.

Let's all be responsible adults and stop this baloney

Dude, your list is so 30 years ago.

Aren't you aware that people are living older these days and that "40 is the new 30"????

By your reckoning, Ice T, Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Sharon Stone, John Travolta, Marie Osmond, etc. aren't "middle aged" but "senile and old."

Okay, you're entitled to your list, here is mine:

0 - 12 children
13 - 19 teens
20 - 29 youth or "young adult"
30 - 39 "established" or "settled" adult
40 - 49 early middle aged
50 - 59 later middle aged
60 - 66 early senior or "Pre-Retirement"
67 - 79 senior citizen
80 - over elderly

Go easy on the T-shirt & jeans look. Nothing at all wrong with wearing it from time to time, or even most of the time, but if that's all you wear every single day, then it's time to break the monotony. When you're 20, the look is fine. When you're 50, I promise it won't kill you to get a button-up or polo shirt and some loose, comfortable slacks. You don't have to look like a Mormon, but you don't have to look like you just walked out of a Ratt concert from 1986, either.

I would also like to add for the guys to get rid of the comb over look. This look is just terrible. I am shocked to see the number of guys that are over 38 with this look. Just cut the hair and go for the bald look. And don't even think of getting a toupee. I saw a guy walking down the street wearing a red one the other day. It looked so tacky and cheap.

I wear jeans a lot, but I almost never wear T-shirts unless I'm either doing yardwork or going to the beach in the summer.
