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 think that's the key, really. Probably a big part of what looks good (within reason) and what doesn't on many men is how they carry themselves.

I still think there are a few things that look bad on any guy, as mentioned earlier...

... but if my boyfriend, who pretty much always dresses cool (we're both just past 30) suddenly started wearing button-downs and khakis and tasseled loafers, he'd look... weird.


Amen sister! Even when I jump to forty, which is rearing its ugly head quick, IMO, I'll still be dressing "cool", for lack of a better word. Button down shirts just don't get put on me unless I'm working some type of office job. Even then, I'd try to get by with a sweater if I could. I've just never felt comfortable at all in those types of clothes. Perhaps I'm too immature to some. I prefer to call it young at heart, or just who I am!

I really don't see the big deal. Some people are actually attracted to those type of men and they actually are what they are looking for. It doesn't mean that they don't have a job or aren't capable of a meaningful conversation.

This is wear people being so judgmental causes a problem. None of us knows who any person is, no matter what clothing they are wearing, or even if they have visible tattoos. Not until we sit down and have a conversation with them.

I have met a lot of wonderful people that way. Cast your judgment aside and see the person.
We are all going to hel l for wearing hoodies!!!!

Ha. You said it.

Are you one of those kids who is embarrassed because their parents are cooler than they are? Just wondering because my 22 year old went through that faze until she recognized that all of her friends were right and she was wrong... I am very cool.

The exact quote was "all of my friends think that you are so cool...I don't get it" to which I replied, "you have to be cool to recognize coolness " She has changed here ways and now recognizes my genetic coolness and shares my fondness for Ray Ban Wayfarers. I think between the two of us we own a half dozen pairs.

Whew sounds like Carlton Banks from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air just made his post!

I wear all sorts of clothes, I ride a skateboard and could care less what others think about what I wear. I own more pairs of flip flops than dress shoes and easily have more t-shirts/shorts than long pants/button down shirts by far.
