You can be insecure to fit in or require the clothing for comfort... for me it's not needed and I don't really care what anyone thinks.
Sounds fine to me. Who cares what all these people think? In a few years, jorts will be a fad and they'll all be wearing them. Mark my words.

Yeah I love that look it's sexy! I hate people who try to tell other people what they should be like. I Love men that know how to dress and rock sneakers. And I'm a heels chick. Real men are themselves and dress the way they want and look good in it.

As a professional I believe I can surely wear t shirt with logo. Tell me, if I go to a picnic or a vacation should I wear formal dress? Obviously not. I think its all about comfortability and fashion trend that should derive me in case of choosing the right dress. Well I dont wanna be a overgrown person. hahahahaha

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?
Are you serious? Where do you get your criteria? There's no such thing as age stopping fashion preferences.
People can wear whatever they want, regardless of age. Converse, tees, and other trendy attire looks good on anyone that can wear them comfortably.

What's low class, is people like you living a life of arrogance and judgement on others. That's the lowest form of society! Go back to your Stephord wives club and remain in your disgrace to society snob club. You all can chuckle together in your nursing home clothes, while the world moves on.

"Tennis" shoes (or whatever they call them these days):

For over a year now, this 60 yr old white guy needs to replace a pair of now totally tattered "white" "tennis?" "running?". shoes, the likes of which mature, non gay white guys wore 10 - 20 yrs ago. I mean, it's like... I've actually sewed parts of these shoes back up. I've looked everywhere. Notta. Creepy stuff of every color of the rainbow, even white ones, all malformed.

So-called "running shoes" "cross trainers" - whatever they call 'em, doesn't matter. They all look like nurse shoes. WTF? Rounded toes, toes shaped like a work boot, orthopedic looking. Yuck! All of them.

All Adidas has to do is go back in their files, like 15 years ago, and re-tool. They'd corner the market. We don't go for "unisex" shoes. Maybe they do in Asia, but not here.

LOL First thing I thought when I read this post is: How old is this dude? A hundred? Heh hes so out of tune with modern society. Especially out on the west coast where our billion dollar CEOs wear chuck taylors and jeans. Guy would be happy in 1950.

I remember this thread. I had no idea it was still going strong. I just turned 50 and I refuse to wear shoes for the almost dead set. At age 50 I wear Nike's and Saucony running shoes. I have plantar Fasciitis and the Saucony shoes have helped a lot.

Then again I probably hace the PF because of wearing flip flops for years. After work it was always toss off the work shoes and either wear no shoes or if I had to go somewhere some flip flops. Bad move because of having no arch support. In the sand I don't see a problem maybe because the sand shapes to the foot.

What I am thinking is that most older people should forgo growing up and continue to live an active lifestyle. Keep surfing, skateboarding, riding bikes, swimming, running, take on a sport of some kind. No one is telling me to give up things that I love. I start Taikwondo with my kids in a week. They have been doing it for over a year now. You are never too old to try new things. I am betting that keeping active will keep people young.

No T shirts because I am older? Why would anyone place an age limit on clothes or shoes?
