Hah! They're fine for wearing to work. Outside work, as fashion-causal wear? Blah. I cannot imagine why someone would choose to wear a polo outside of wearing one as a work uniform. I thought that's what we were talking about, not work uniforms?

That's awesome that tattoos got a mention in this thread. Some people really hate them.

I have to wonder who the OP thinks he is to determine what people should wear. Just like the hoodie thread.

I am a woman, but I probably wear things that he considers inappropriate for my age and sex, but I don't care.

I wear what I want to wear.

OP is a troll, clear as day. Rude, narrowminded, and a square.

Wear what is suitable for the situation. Plus, I'm not out to impress 24/7.

Anyone else agree?
What's wrong with dressing comfortably. I agree its not appropriate for men to wear sleeveless clothes outside the gym or house, but a short sleeve t shirt with jeans and sneakers look fine no matter how old you are. And I presume you are against grown men wearing shorts, which means we have to deal with sweaty rash infested thigh's all summer long. Additionally, why are you deciding a age limit for wearing certain types of clothes. If a guy think he looks nice and feels comfortable wearing a T-shirt, then let him wear it as long as the weather permits.

the thing about clothing is it can be changed instantly, but tats are for life and when they are no longer cool or in style with your lifestyle later on in life they will look just as silly as those imature teen agers / college kid fashions


I never got the tattoo deal. Everyone and their grandmother gets tattoos these days. The really crazy ones with crazy colors and no coherence are my favorites. What was on that person's mind? 16 year old girls with lower back tattoos push the envelope as far as I am concerned. 40 years and 50 lbs will make that thing really saggy.

Don't feed the trolls.

Don't tell the OP that I've bought two pairs of Vans and one pair of Converse this year alone. And since I lost 60 lbs in the past year, it necessitated a whole wardrobe replacement - filled to the brim with graphic T shirts and slimmer-fit jeans. I feel like a million bucks wearing a new wardrobe. And I'm dangerously close to 25.

And don't tell the OP I had this conversation the other day. In some worlds it's called joking around, although I suppose in the OP's world it's something vile. In mine it's called being secure, LOL:

I shop for my casual clothing at Lacoste, Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers.

I also enjoy downhill skateboarding on a long board and wear Vans Off The Wall shoes on and off the board.

I'm 47 years old.

There's some things you need to address concerning yourself prior to questioning others.

No different than 47 year women shopping the teen dept, some people think they are too old, others think it's fine. Maybe it depends who can pull it off and who can't.
