Anyone else agree?
I don't consider those to be "kid type" shoes. So I guess I disagree on that. I do agree about the skinny jeans. NO ONE should wear them. As far as the shirts, it's fine for a guy to wear anything...other than sleeveless.

I know what you mean and I'm ashamed of myself. I got 30 days in jail and had to watch 50 episodes of What Not To Wear, on TLC. The reason for the punishment? I'm 57 and I wore a t shirt with a logo on it! Judge said it's a good thing I wasn't wearing Converse hi-tops or I'd never see the light of day again!

Nope, totally disagree with you. Converse, Vans and Hi-tops are not considered kids shoes or else they would not make them in adult sizes. They are more geared towards the skater/surfer culture. Once a guy hits 25 should he switch to penny loafers? Cmon now...Have you even seen all the different designs or are you too narrow minded? The DC Comic Converse are AMAZING!

Graphic tees are still acceptable for 25 year olds. What do a lot of guys at this age like? Video games, zombies, etc. So I can't understand why expressing your interests through clothing is immature. Now a guy that's say 40 wearing a shirt that has a mustache or says "Cool Story Bro" is a different story.

Skinny jeans are also big in skater style. I personally don't like men wearing them but this "homosexual" look you're talking about came from the emo scene because those kids would actually wear the ones intended for chicks...The only thing I can agree with you on is baggy jeans down past the ass. It's extremely disgusting! Why even wear pants? >.< I wonder if those guys even know or care about where/why that look came into play.

All this being said, "grown men" do not and should not wear only what you listed. Button up's and polos? 14 year old jocks wear things like that. Do you consider them to be or look like "grown men" because of it? That's the classic prep style and is NOT for everyone.

Drives me nuts.

I guess that isn't just for men, it's for anyone over the age of 9.
Does that include shoes as well? I am stuck with 12.5 - 13 4E feet which limits me to a few lackluster New Balance sneakers for footwear. I do wear other brands for my shirts and shorts though I do prefer plain T-shirts.

You know, it just bothers me. I could care less what people really wear. My son is in a shoe like that and my brother is in a 15. I know what you mean.

For the most part, I am being ridiculous, like the OP.
