Who died and made you the fashion police? How people chose to dress is their business. If you are their employer, I can understand you wanting a particular "face" for your business, but what people wear on their off hours should be a matter of personal expression and freedom. I am over 50 (very few people know this, I look young, feel young, and somedays I let my inner 20 something have some fun) and I am not ready to "own" my age. I know too many who look 70 and act it. Wearing "grown up" clothing helps confirm one's age to their psyche, and I for one am not going to give up the ghost. Hope you don't die too young from your judgmental frumpy attitude. Good luck with that!

I wear my chuck taylors from time to time. Typically when I am doing something that my shoes may get dirty, or the weather does not me to permit my nicer tennis shoes.

What else would I wear with my sweatpant shorts?

Default Frightened by skinny jeans and trainers

I'll let you in on a few things, I dress very very well and love clothing as much if not more than my wife does.
I drape myself in monogrammed broadcloth dress shirts and wear many tailored suits.
I shop for my casual clothing at Lacoste, Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers.

I also enjoy downhill skateboarding on a long board and wear Vans Off The Wall shoes on and off the board.

I'm 47 years old.

Answer this question please Jefferson Davis, why are you threatened by cool sneakers and gay men?

There's some things you need to address concerning yourself prior to questioning others.
While I agree with a number of things that the former president of Dixie says, I have to agree with Julain. Disliking trainers (sneakers) I can get behind but why the hate for our gay bro's and their cigarette pants?

Sartorial snobbishness and homophobia would seem to make odd bedfellows.

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?
Converse were not designated for any particular age group. They are timeless.

Its not always about the money, but the style! You need the freedom to dress how you want to make it work.

lol! 25? Really? A 26 year old who only wore button down shirts, polos and oxfords would look like a douche to me.

I have a pair of converse shoes I wear a lot, and also wear Sanuks often. I don't go too graphic on my t-shirts, but never tuck them in (because it looks stupid) and wear jeans every day. And I'm over 45, college educated and a father. I work out and weigh what I should, so I dress a little younger than some do at my age. But I'm not going to wear polo shirts and frumpy pants with boat shoes That look just says, "I no longer care about my looks and I'm old!"
