But who is to determine what people should wear? I will be 40 in a couple of months and I certainly don't wear clothes from the junior department, but I am wearing a t shirt with Spock on it. I could care less what people think about my t shirt.

OOOH, and there are tattoos under my shirt too. Just awful.

Dressing "cool" has no age limit...

(Please see: Patrick Stewart, Bryan Ferry, Wes Anderson, Anthony Bourdain, Daniel Craig, Tim Gunn, etc.)

... and tacky is tacky, no matter what your age...

(Please see: tank tops on men in public, socks with sandals and shorts, pajama bottoms out of the house, etc.)

I am 63 and wear levis tennis shoes of any brand that fits, and a black T shirt with pocket.
I NEVER wear button down any thing ever .
My leather jacket zips up, and leather chaps zip down to my leather boots that zip up.
Yes I ride motorcycle (not with a group) no labels .
For fun I have Scrat suspended on my rear bag looking like he is leaping after me.
Live should be fun.
I wear different hats for the jobs I'm doing, and the appropriate safety equipment for the job at hand.
But me dressing up is T shirt and levis and tennis shoes. Even to church .

Are you a CS, math, or engineering nerd. If so, welcome to my team .

I actually agree with OP to an extent. Nothing is more off putting to me than seeing grown man wearing certain types of clothing. You are an adult. Dress like it.

I can understand game day, a pick up game, or just hanging around the house with friends. But dressing like that on a regular basis is not attractive to me and yes, I see it often on men over 40.

But the OP wants anyone 25 or older to be dressing like an older man....


and the OP still hasn't stated their age.

Man please. A cupla years back I saw a 70+ year old white dude walking into B&N in Mnhtn wearing a faded 2Pac t-shirt. I remember thinking this guy looks sick! (in a good way). About a half hour later I doubled back into the store and I saw everyone hailing him up and random people asking to take pics with him.

I wonder how many of those men care.

People usually type those things when they have an axe to grind. I'm sure his 'other' was probly picked from his tree by someone dressed like a skaterat. Can't be too tight ass in life, homeboy.

Sure, dress like an adult, but in what world is wearing polos and button-ups the sole uniform of adulthood?

I've been an adult for a great many years, and don't own a single button-up blouse. Not my style. I can and do dress age-appropriately, however. Thank God that button placket shirts are not the universal standard for "grown up clothes."
