That explains everything.

Hey op, why don't you dust off that brain of yours and try (thinking) again.

Ha ha yeah... I never would wear yoga or sweat pants or sloppy stuff in public but I am not one who lives to please random strangers.

So it won't be long before you will be walking around naked?

Jeans to wal-mart?! You are over-dressing aren't you?


I do understand having some opinions, and how some people are sloppy and why wearing PJ pants and yoga pants out to dinner and all the time is a bit much, and there should be limitations. But at the same time, I'm too busy to walk around judging everyone on their clothes. If you have that much time, you should get a life. Live and let live. I also think it's not that black and white. I agree with one poster, expecting someone to be really dressed up to run into the hardware store on a Sunday morning, or someone is at Walgreens obviously feeling bad, getting meds in their PJ pants, that's different than going out to dinner. Why does one person think they should have the right to tell the whole world how to dress. If you do, maybe you need a new hobby.

The OP thinks everyone should be like Ward Cleaver.

Does anyone here know where I can find the velcro strap Chucks? My old pairs are worn out (had them for more than 15 years) and it appears that they have discontinued.

Sorry but I don't plan on stopping wearing Converse once I hit 25. That's just stupid.

The appropriate shoes for men aged 25 years and older would be monks, oxfords, derbies, and loafers. Grown men also wear button up shirts and polos. NOT short sleeve t-shirts with logos, wife beaters, sports jerseys and other low brow immature styles.

Anyone else agree?

I think people in general just need to tend to their own lives, wardrobes and business and let every else tend to theirs.

Most people if they are smart do not care what others think about any of this nonsense.

I'm a 30something female and I will never give up the Chucks. I also like Onitsuka Tigers and Gola sneakers - most comfortable shoes on Earth. Obviously I would not wear them to a job interview or a high-end restaurant, but 90% of the time I dress for comfort and I think most normal people do the same, at least in the western U.S. Most men wear flip-flops year round here...sneakers would be a major improvement!

I think Chucks are sexy on men of any age. I grew up in the grunge era so a good-looking guy in Chucks, jeans and a flannel shirt still does it for me.

There's a huge difference between dressing casually and dressing like a slob or a teenager. Nobody of any age should be wearing pants that sag down to the buttcrack.

So did I. The guys in my school who liked Nirvana and Alice in Chains and all that wore Chucks or One-Stars and flannels from Penneys/Macys/Sears. Some would tie the flannel around their waist in the "mosh pit" at shows or when it got hot outside so you could see their ripped up band t-shirts. (My status right now is a line from "Over Now," by 'Chains.)

Then there were the kids who didn't like the music at all but wore the "Seattle look" as a fashion statement. It's still funny to me how that scene got blown up into an international fashion movement. Kind of like punk did after the Sex Pistols got huge in 1976.

I still have a pair of jeans from the 90s, an off brand that was designed to wear out so it looked "grunge." Both knees are completely blown out now. I wear them when I clean the house. My wife jokes that I look like a dirt ball in them. I'm a proud old dirt ball!

And at thirty you should start getting use to grey Dr. Scholls with the velcro straps.
