I totally agree with the OP. I'm a guy and I'm under 25 and even I think it's ridiculous seeing 30 year-old grown men wearing hipster clothing and converse or high-top shoes with tattoo sleeves to match. Ugh. I mean, it's okay maybe once in a blue moon to sport for comfort. But to make it your daily sense of fashion is appalling. Men of this generation need to grow up and be the man that they were made to be. It seems like alot of men refuse to grow up and are trying to hold on to this image or lifestyle of being a badass. Even though they might have 2 or 3 kids in tow. Time for these guys to hang up the towel and start dressing more maturely and conservatively. I've never been one to stan for European culture but they have one thing right. They put effort into their appearance and has something called modesty and class that alot of people lack over here. We need to go back to the old days of when women dressed feminine and men dressed with suave.

If you are "appalled" by how other people dress I can only imagine how you get through life. Good luck with that.

So... when you turn 25, you will toss out all the clothes of your youth,"hang up the towel and start dressing more maturely and conservatively"?
Really?

I'm sorry but "Chucks" are not classic or classy. Wingtips on the other hand.

So, tell us about yourself. For starters, how old are you?

I have to love these reactionary posts. Your opinions on how people should dress does not outweigh the opinions of others. Society changes over the years and that includes casual attire.
