I prefer to wear khakis and cotton Oxford button-down collar shirts. The only T-shirts I wear now are undershirts unless I'm at the beach. I very rarely wear shorts outdoors (again, at the beach perhaps) because nobody wants to see my hairy legs (that's another thread here at City-Data Forum).

In the warm months, I wear shorts as much as I can, but I wear them with a polo shirt.

Just make sure your clothes fit right.

And not a fashion thing, but lift weights - it keeps the aches and pains away and makes you look better in your clothes.

Thank you. I was one who didn't accept my hair loss immediately and even wore a "rug". Thankfully I came to my senses and just accepted myself for who I am.

Guys..don't freak out about balding. In all honesty, the majority of people don't notice or care anyway. It's simply part of the aging process. They WILL notice when you try to cover it up with a cheap toupee or a bad transplant.

The first thing to come to mind for me was to avoid the dad jeans, but someone already beat me to it. I really hate those dad jeans which are too light colored, too short, too high-waisted, and have those really big, ill-placed pockets that make your butt look flat.

Dad jeans are not appealing! It is amazing how much better a middle-aged guy looks when wearing a good fitting pair of dark wash jeans with a stylish pair of leather shoes (not tennis shoes!).

Also, maybe it's just me, but I do not like when men attach any items to their belt including cell phones, leatherman/pocket knives, tools, wallet, camera case, fanny packs, IPAD (I've seen this), suspenders (wear without a belt), gold chains, etc. Why do men love to clip all these things to their belts?????

ok here goes since iam at the age of 51 and i wear t-shirts and jeans and hikeing boots outside of work because of dressing work is allways in a dress slacks and shirt with tie and dress socks and belt or suit and tie and shoes for work ..so outside of work iam not a big let get dressed up to do something type of guy inless it going out on a date to a play or the opera or a really nice place for date or a wedding date then i will dress up for the person ..

but iam allways going to be the t-shirt and jeans and hikeing boots and a barn jacket type of guy for that my era when iam going up in the middle of the 70s and onward

i do shaveing the head because of not likeing the two big bald spots on the front and rear areas of the head and i figure it time to shave it and be done with it along with keeping a clean shaven look i still can get carded here and there in a couple of places for buying alochol at the store and trim the eyebrows and ears and the back of the neck and the nose hair as they are need to be done ..

a nice mancure here and there to keep the nails looking goods for grooming for the work area of my life and i done the pedcure a couple of times a year for they run specials on the nails and pedcure togerther special that they offer ..

i have spent the day in a spa once a month deal that one place has for men and i love the massage and spa treatment day that they have along with a full baber for men there to shave and cut hair after the spa day and no iam not a metrosexual type of person ..

i found that after a workout a full body massage will put me to sleep on the table so fast it not funny and i will snore when iam asleep as i was told by the one lady who was doing the massage on me ..they wake me up to turn over and finish up the massage and i will go back to sleep from becomeing so relaxed as they work on my body at the time of the massage .

the one lady who i book all the time she loves me for she says i will sleep through the whole thing and not be a problem with the hands like some of the other guys ..

i do also get the facials and other treatments that the place offers as part of the men package for the day spa that i go to once a month

i work out three times a week with the TRX suspension trainers unit and it works great for me and my body group for a full body work out to keep me at my wieght of 275 pds of solid body wieght ..i do have a little bit of body fat but the doctor told that is also going to be there and i do not have a problem with it .

so iam not in the best shape of my life but iam doing ok in my life and wonder if i ever have the body of a 18 year kid again not but iam ok in this age of my life

-- Make sure your barber or stylist razors off that fuzzy hair on the back of your neck.

Now I'm not a Metrosexual and not into that whole "manscaping" thing, but I do believe in being well groomed.

Any more suggestions for us middle aged guys?????
I'm all about your list.

I also believe in the health benefits of massage, and encourage people to get massaged regularly. I travel frequently to places like India and Thailand where they take massage seriously.

What I don't understand is ... "a problem with the hands like some other guys ..." What does that mean? Do they have a problem being touched?
