Men over the age of 25 should not be wearing converse, vans, hi-tops or other kid type shoes. Grown ups wear grown up clothes. Wearing T-shirts with logos or graphics on them is for teenagers. Skinny jeans are effeminate and make one look like a homosexual. Baggy jeans are low class and ugly. Whatever happened to grown men who wear adult clothes?

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?

Huh? You missed the only insidious one. Flip-flops.

And I have never even heard of "monks" or "derbies" as shoe types. That probably puts me on a whole new level of low brow.

So let me get this straight, your against any perceived wearable symbols of youth and your comparing certain types of jeans to appearing as a segment of male society that arguably dresses the most stylish out of anyone else who's male? Got it!!


I'll let you in on a few things, I dress very very well and love clothing as much if not more than my wife does.
I drape myself in monogrammed broadcloth dress shirts and wear many tailored suits.
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.

Answer this question please Jefferson Davis, why are you threatened by cool sneakers and gay men?

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

Hahahaha!

No, I do not agree.

How old are YOU? And what the heck are monks and derbies?

Disagree.

I am 36. My typical attire when I am not up to anything is t-shirts (or maybe a sports jersey if tied to a sporting event), regular jeans, and sneakers (running sneakers, partially because I run 4 miles daily).

For just kicking around the house, the store, etc, I see no reason to be wearing polos, button up shirts, fancier shoes, etc. I see no problem with this level of casualness for adults as long as the situation doesn't call for anything fancier.

I do have some nicer stuff. I generally wear shirt, tie, slacks, etc, to work. Also, on date nights with my wife, I might wear button up casual shirts, kakhis, etc.
