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?
You should be wearing baggy khakis with an elastic waist band pulled up to your man boobs, white orthopedic shoes, black socks, a Hawaiian shirt (tucked in just under your man boobs), and a straw hat. Top it off with Blue Blockers. Now you're age appropriate

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?
Oh for Goodness sake!!!

What if the guy has a lot of walking to do, you still want him to clomp around in heavy boots?

By the way, FASHION changes daily, so if you're in the business of dictating it to others you'd better ensure you are up to date on everything.

Men now wear skirts on the runway so....MAN UP....get your skirt on Fashionista!

I am almost 65,
I have worne jeans /levis and T shirts tennis shoes and leather boots, all my life ,except for uniforms as required.
I do not play dress up , If my wardrobe is a problem for some one, it their problem not mine.
I have been given a number of Tshirts that have logos usually for the companies I worked for, or a friends business .
I don't wear logos that I do not wish to support.
I normally wear black for no other reason than I like it ,it is not compeditive. but respectable in this part of the world.(southern California)
I wear pants, (not shorts,) that fit properly with a real 100% leather belt ( longer then necessary) , not for looks but for function.
I make my own custome holder for the phone/flashlight/and knife, in one from leather,as well.
Before cell phones were available, I carried a 2 meter amature radio (being a licensed amature).
Having a flash light and knife on me ,is as much a part of me as breathing.
I am not impressed with name brands .

Theres a fine line between looking quite cool and looking ridiculous.. I like to see an older man taking care of himself with modern clothes but not trying to be hiphop or street..Funnily yesterday I was chatting to my 13 year old granddaughter about ice skating as that was my thing when I was younger.. she said she loved it too but that she couldnt go the old me like my age hahah, who wore drop waist baggy trousers with logo shorts showing at the back and their hats turned back to front... she said there was a clique of them at the skating who took over showing off to the young ones... Worrying hahahah.. I might join.. hahaha.

While most of the OP's post is totally ridiculous (they do kind of have a point about the graphic tees IMO), there also seems to be a reoccurring attitude in many of this thread's replies that you're either dressing extremely young... or you're dressing "like an old man", and this I find nearly as odd.

There are some ways for the guy over 25, or over, 35, or over 55, to dress a little more maturely and do so in a manner that's flattering and stylish, and that will look better on most of us somewhat older guys than sneakers and tees, 24/7.

So, there IS a third option.

I'm a very fashionable woman, but I still like guys who wear converse when they're off work. It shows they're laid back.

I really can't date a guy who has to dress up 24/7.

Really? A 26 year old cannot be hiphop or street?
This thread is about men over 25...
