I think the skater look is hot at any age.

Somehow I doubt the OP sees a lot of 45 year old men dressed in skater garb trying to pick up women in business suits. For the few that are out there I doubt their worlds collide with very many pant-suit wearing Hillary Clinton look-a-likes.

Personally I think your wardrobe should fit the occasion. If a 40 year old is indeed skating there is nothing wrong with wearing baggy shorts and a tee. If a 40 year old man is in a nice restaurant wearing a ballcap twisted backwards and flip-flops, it is inappropriate.

I'm 60 and was thinking about getting a skateboard until I read this thread and found I would also have to buy new clothes.

I agree, in nice restaurants I wear my ballcap twisted forward. However, my baggy cargo shorts and flip-flops stay. Hey, I got standards.

you just need the right shoes. the clothes are just a shirt and pants. it's probably the only sport where you just wear jeans or khakis and a t-shirt.

guys just tend to stick with what they liked when they were younger and felt most like "themselves". They tend not to worry about fashion appropriateness as much as women do. That being said, I doesn't hurt to work on it a little bit and show some versatility in wardrobe. It takes a little talent to pull off a suit one day and a slacker outfit the next and feel equally as comfortable in both. Most guys are a bit more limited in that regard to what they feel comfortable "pulling off" fashion-wise and end up sticking with what feels comfortable to them.

Skateboarding is not too much different from surfing. It's good exercise. I pretty much gave it up after my teens but my little girl skates now and she occasionally likes me to show her how. Personally I think it's kinda juvenile but ultimately, it is just a harmless pastime like biking.

A guy who's skating is doing himself some good for his health and keeping in shape. Yeah, maybe it's a little wacky to flashback to our kiddy days reviving the skatekid within us. But you ladies prolly ought to appreciate. If an older guy keeps in shape by skating, wouldn't you prefer that to a guy eating cheetos and swilling buds in front of the TV?

Who really cares what some dude wears as long as his butt is not hanging out. I will admit some older dudes could learn to dress a bit better say when going out to dinner though.
