Only with the parts not in red. I maybe old fashioned. But I am not narrow-minded enough to think I should convince everyone else to think like me. There is no age limit on what is appropriate attire. Occasion, weather or situation are the only things I think should be considered when dressing for the day. People dress for comfort or how they feel. And they have all the right to. And if I am unimpressed with their choice, then I dont have to look and hope they dont mind mine.

Well, now that I think about it I do have a serious men's fashion DON'T.

Don't wear NBA style baggie shorts with LeBron James or Michael Jordans if the only court that you have seen in recent years is the food court at the Mall (see Cinnabuns)!

That's it.

Nah I will keep wearing my T-shirts and shorts all year around. Your rant is just filled with your opinions, not facts.

I actually agree with you

I have about 15 pairs of boat shoes and sneakers sitting idle on my shoe rack.

I have upgraded to strictly Allen Edmonds and Church's, dress shoes for the office, camel and suede brogues and cap-toes for casual outfits and I feel like I have moved up in life by leaps and bounds If only I had known

Too many rules!!!! One government is enough telling me what to do..I don't need someone telling me what to wear. I love Vans and will always wear them. *pats down his Mickey Mouse tee shirt and walks away smiling*

everyone wears tennis shoes even bill gates. as an adult i prefer black. i never pay over 35 bucks. id guess you better wear leather shoes to the waldorf. personally good sandals are even more comfy and can also be black with black socks for evening.

as for adult casual clothes its not cool to dress like a teen wannable gangbanger. as for long hair i doubt anyone would ridicule old half bald jesse ventura. as for sleeveless t shirts only retarded cavemen over 30 wear them. branded caps shirts etc are moronic for any age. today only very stuffy or entry level office workers wear suits and ties. casual clothes, designer blue jeans etc. like trim beards are signs of corporate status. the norms of one century are the antique costumes of the next. only presidents and generals wear uniforms for international conferences. jerseys and baggy pants say im poor and dumb at any age. my issue is that few skinheads look like telly savalas or shaquile o'neil. most look like mental patients or criminals.

Fortunately (for many reasons), I'm retired, and that means I wear what I damn well want to. When I worked, I wore clothes that were appropriate for the job. I seriously never considered whether they were age-appropriate.

BUT, I've been wearing t-shirts, jeans, and tennis shoes literally all my life ... as a kid, as an adult when I wasn't on the job, and now in retirement.

I'm big into comfort, affordability, and durability. My favorite pair of button-fly Levi's are 15 years old.

And I don't care what anybody says men over 25 should or should not be wearing. The only opinion that matters on what I wear - other than my own - is my wife's, and she's just fine with it.

.....I do have a few things I don't like men to wear. I think it has to do with OCD tendencies. Adidas socks with Nike shoes and New Balance shorts and a K-Swiss shirt.

That can be arranged in any kind of order. Adidas basketball shorts and a Nike t shirt.

Drives me nuts.

I guess that isn't just for men, it's for anyone over the age of 9.
