Of course not, jeans are universal at any age.

Jeans are a versatile staple in many wardrobes — and any woman who’s ever shopped for them knows finding the perfect pair is no easy task. So that’s why, according to a new study, many tend to hold on tight to their favorite pair and wear them again and again until they’re worn out.

Unfortunately, that same research, conducted by CollectPlus, proposes that those age 53 and older should ditch those pants — and stop wearing jeans altogether.

Yet even the company behind the results, a British parcel delivery and return service, doesn’t necessarily agree with its findings. Catherine Woolfe, marketing director at CollectPlus, told the Daily Mail, “It’s surprising to see our research reveals that many people think jeans are the reserve of the younger generation, suggesting that we should all put denim back on the shelf at the age of 53.”

That's...weird.

I'm 49 and live in jeans. Tight ones.

Articles like that crack me up!


53?
What magically happens that jeans, which are fine when you are 52, are no longer viable at age 53?

I am in my 60s and I will never do without my jeans.

Uh oh. I'm in trouble then.

I'm wondering what *they* propose we wear? Polyester stretch pants with elastic waistbands? Paired with a nice cardigan sweater complete with tissue stored in the sleeve.

Wrong.

I chuckled at this because my mother, sister and I always have a tissue in our cleavage. I don't believe there is a set age when people should stop wearing jeans but some older people find them uncomfortable. My stepfather hated jeans and never wore them, he found them too constricting.

Silly idea. We have casual Fridays here (400 employees) and everyone wears jeans. Our average employee age is 49, with many of us over 60. I by mine for $13 at Costco, and they are very comfortable if you buy the right size.

There is a difference between choosing not to wear something you find uncomfortable and being told to refrain from wearing something you do find comfortable.

I'm in my late 50's, and am actually fairly new to wearing Jeans.

Unless it is a situation where I need to be "dressed up", I find them comfortable and sexy!
