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?
I could not disagree with these comments more. One person's self imposed fashion restrictions are not going to dictate male fashion sense and style.

So an anonymous poster on a message board is commanding men what they should or should not be wearing. How silly is that?

I'm throwing out my grey Vans right after I yell at the kids to get off my lawn (even though I live in an apartment).

That being said, both of these styles are associated with punk rock and that kind of style, so it really just depends on how you style your clothes. Just like you can't mix cowboy clothes with hip hop clothes, it's the same thing. If you wear a punk rock outfit, than you can pull off the converse and tight jeans while still looking okay, because you're matching everything with each other.



Hey I sometimes wear a stetson hat and Wrangler or Brooks & Dunn button-down with my Tripp-NYC pants and Vans or combat boots. I callit "cowboy punk". I betcha OP's wardrobe is full of that. Many minds outside of one; do not be afraid to stand alone.

My dad who's in his 40's, wears Vans and other skateboarding shoes all the time when not at work and doesn't care what anyone thinks about it.

Do they still make Keds? Do they still have the "Run faster! Leap farther! Jump higher! With the Action Wedge! Built right in!"
