Anyone else agree?
Please, please get a life.

I'm not taking advice from a poster with a screen name that is the same name as the President of the Confederacy.

Yeah, I love it when other people tell me what to wear and not to wear. If you want to be Mr. GQ, or Mr. trending fashion, or whatever, thats you. Im about to be 50, and I have several pairs of Vans shoes, which I love, and I will always wear Vans. I grew up wearing them, and still do. I always will. Now, I skipped the bright colored ones, the checkerd ones, etc, because of personal choice, but I do still think they are cool, but not for me anymore. I go for the more subdued colors, grays, blacks, white, browns, etc. I will leave the bright flashy colors to the youngsters, but still, im not that old yet, so I enjoy my Vans. Im getting to old to care what people think, and to care about the latest fashion trends. I could give a rats butt about all of that. I will keep and wear my Vans, thank you.....

As a forty year old whose summer wardrobe consists entirely of shirts I've bought at concerts, I have no hesitation in telling you to bugger off.

Glad to know OP doesn't personally approve of 85% of my wardrobe. Thanks so much for that insight, grandpa. Now I know what to wear when I'm invited to his place.

It's all about personality, and how the individual carries the fashion. Some people can pull off a certain look. On other people, it doesn't quite "fit" right for one reason or another.

So, yes, some 30 year olds wearing Converse, Vans, etc. might look like a case of arrested development, but then, I've seen seniors wearing Converse and looking totally hip doing it. To each his own!
