It seems to me life is simpler for us males in terms of what to wear.

I like them too and bet that, like me, you're confident that your backside will never be seen in one of those "People of Walmart" photos.

I check every so often to make sure I haven't made it there.

I've told my children that if I ever end up in a nursing home to simply supply me with scrubs. They can be bought to mix and match so I'm never dressed in garish color combinations, and there are cute patterns available.

Thank you for sharing this link! Especially appreciated items #3 - #6. Dressing in classic, flattering styles is a good idea at any age and need not require a massive budget. But doing an attitude check before one leaves the house and ventures out into the world should be mandatory!

since i have been on this diabetic diet i have to keep asking my wife if these jeans make my butt look to small.

i think if i was a woman though i would still dress sleazy . i guess it just reflects who i am ha ha ha ... i keep telling myself i am not that kind of guy , but deep inside i know i am lol.

marilyn and i were in a dennys i think , one summer . marilyn had on like a 3/4 top or whatever you call those things and spandex shorts since we were mountain biking the deleware water gap . coming back from the ladies room a group of older women made comments she over heard about how someone her age should not dress like that.

i think they should have been more concerned about me in spandex , she has better abs and legs than i do. ha ha ha

heck if it looks good , you go girl.

looks ok to me, to funny we have a photo from that day.

The point is-do you feel tacky in them?

Clothes should be comfortable and clean; anything else is at the wearer's discretion.
