Anyone else agree?
Another jerkwad "fashion" post....and yet again, the paranoia about looking "homosexual." Only in America.

Lmao no just no.

At the end of the day, you wear what you buy. If I want to go out and buy RED & YELLOW chucks then so be it, you're not putting money in my pockets.

It was the OP who said you can't. I actually agree with what he said about skinny jeans, minus the anti-gay hysteria. I think they look ridiculous, but I have better things to worry about than whether a or not another guy is wearing them. The day I have enough time to obsess over the other people's fashion choices that don't effect my life one way or the other is the day I will seek out another hobby.

Well, to be fair, the OP's username is a reference to the president of the confederacy. I would expect most 21st century sensibilities like seeing gay people as normal human beings to be "radical" and "scary" to him.

I don't wear flipflops, but as I'm looking down the barrel of another scorching inland California summer, you'll never get me to stop wearing sandals. I'm 58.

Not that I won't wear shoes when dictated by the situation, but otherwise, no.

this is a troll topic. Reminds me of something I watched on reruns of Leave It To Beaver.

I didn't bother to read the entire thread, but unless the OP is going to fit the bill to clothe other people, he really has no say-so in how other people dress.

I actually have to agree. Whenever I see a 40+ yr old guy wearing converse I already don't take him seriously. Even I would feel ridiculous wearing those in my mid 20s

come on, many people are still students at the age of 25. I mean, thinking that someone who is 25 is not young anymore is a bit ridiculous.

Also, casual clothing does not equal bad clothing style.

And what with all the youngsters now wearing docksides or car shoes with cardigans ?

Also, if you think everyone else dresses badly, at least that makes you stand out more.

I'm in my mid-30s and still wear sneakers with hooded sweatshirts most of the time. That said I almost always wear (casual) buttons-up as well because I think i look better with a collar, but that's just me.

Men dress like that because we live in a society in which there is a very blurry line that separates adults from children. It's hard tell whom is whom anymore.

In addition, men are not as concerned with their appearances as they once were. This isn't a good thing. It is for me because I get complemented for my style of dress.


Vans and Converses....haha Not me.
