^ Bifocals should be added to your outfit at 30 too. So everyone knows you are "old." Excuse me, "mature."

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 have to say that I TOTALLY disagree. I don't give a rats AZZ what anyone wears. Let them wear whatever they want. How could it make a difference to my life?

Honestly the OP sounds like a douche judging from the first post (or maybe he/she is just trolling who knows).

Unless I am at work or some other formal event such as a funeral or wedding, I am going to dress in which manner is most comfortable which to me means a t shirt, jeans, and a pair of sneakers.

Old people shoes.

I kind of dig monks, but derbies are decidedly for old people. And hipsters pretending to dress up like their grandfathers. Still, if you see a guy under 90 wearing monk straps there's a good chance he's wearing skinny jeans and his 12-year-old younger brothers tweed jacket with a bow tie. Why? Nobody knows. Hell, I don't even know why his 12-year-old brother HAS a tweed jacket, let alone why you'd wear it with monkstraps and a bow tie.

In other words, these men look like adults, even though casually dressed. Even my son-in-law, who is north of 40, wears baggy cargo shorts, flip-flops, logo T-shirts, and has tattoos (perpetual teenager, IMO).
If my husband showed up in Dockers, or in jeans that had been 'pressed', I'd DIVORCE him. (mainly because if he showed up in cheap "slacks" like 'Dockers', or in something as tacky as "pressed" bluejeans, it would mean he was not really my DH, but a Pod Person - and that the Body Snatchers had done away with my real husband).

And as for the men described above, if I'd seen them, I would have assumed that they'd been dressed by controlling old biddies who thought they needed to pick out clothes for their husbands.The whole point of bluejeans is that they are rough-and-tumble, wash-and-wear, ultra-casual clothing. Trying to make them "dressy" or "neat" is beyond nauseating.

Soooo.... are the jackets "paired" with these "pressed" jeans and "Dockers" those cheap, unlined cotton things Buick-driving grannies in the Heartland get at the mall for their husbands? You know... with the epaulets... ?

And as for the Original post.... What's wrong with looking like "Homosexuals"? I'd think Cary Grant would have been one of OP's sartorial role models.
