I'm 36 and wear whatever I want. I stopped caring what others thought of me a long time ago. I dress appropriately at work but when I'm not at work, anything goes.

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?
Ya know, I like the style that you describe, and my husband dresses like that most of the time. He's 30.

Yet, I still think he looks sexy with his jeans (loose fit, not too baggy and definitely NOT skinny jeans), band T-shirts and New Balances.

I wouldn't worry so much about what other people wear, though. Who really cares?

OP - has it ever occurred to you that on the inside we all feel like we are still children? Just because our bodies are aging and marching towards death doesn't mean that we should stop being who we are are on the inside. Anyhow, 25 is hardly a point at which people mysteriously become "grown up" and should act differently.

How about this... how about we all wear what we want and stop judging each other with such shallow and subjective criteria?

Nope. Don't agree. Grown men can wear what they want. Am in my fifties and had a pair of Converse shoes that wore out about 6 months ago. Wore them to go walking. Comfortable but I wouldn't run in them. Use to have Converse as a teen in gym class high school (early 70s). Have recently worn t-shirts with logos, albeit NOT with popular sayings, when lazing around. Never was a "wife beater" fan. The only skinny jeans I get is when I throw my Carhartts into the dryer and wear them for the first time. Ugh, too tight and uncomfortable. You can keep skinny jeans. As well as the baggy ones. Also have button-up shirts and some polos. As you can tell, I dress for comfort and when the occasion calls for it, formality. And I don't care what other people think.

Hmmmmmm...... men over the age of 25, and women too for that matter, should wear whatever they want.

Besides, I like those types of shoes!

What I dont like are people who look silly in certain clothes .. not an age thing more that they cant get away with it.. while others can.... I took a photo of a man in his late forties wearing black tight jeans , a black t shirt and cowboy hat recently... he looked great because he was very tall and carried it off.. while someone stocky or short couldnt have...

LMAO.

Nothing like some nice Chucks. Even Larry David can be seen walking around in Chucks. Comfort, style and timeliness.
