Anyone else agree?
I totally agree. Even worse when they give themselves teen nicknames. Sometimes I just start laughing but apparently it's the in thing to do. Still very ridiculous.

Men over the age of 25 should wear whatever the f~~~ they please because they're adults who don't have to impress anyone they don't want to.

Fixed it for you.

Nobody said you can't. Grown men can wear pampers and carry a baby bottle for all we care. Just saying it looks ridiculous.

I like the look of Chucks. But being that I have 5E width feet my shoe choices end up being pretty limited.

Chucks and Vans are actually a very traditional style, and I think they're fine for casual wear for men of any age.

Watch The Prisoner- everyone is wearing Vans-type shoes.

How about sweat pants, hoodies, or other things not mentioned? Any specific underwear? Boxers or briefs?

I am 58 and wear whatever I feel like throwing on as I am retired and have no one to impress. I may dress a bit nicer for doctor's visits, dinner parties or artist's receptions, but for the most part, I really don't care.
You would probably think I dress like I should drive my truck instead of my Caddie.
Again, I don't care.
