I agree, men do dress like boys.

Ball caps, athletic wear now seems to be "the norm".

I think I go dressed like a man for work, Ron.

But weekends are a different story

The only time I wear athletic gear is when I go for a jog or work out. Never do I wear anything athletic unless it's athletic in nature.

I learned how to dress well from my dad and grandfather. Both are very dapper men.

They look good in jeans, a nice fitted plain white t-shirt and loafers.

I've always liked a clean polished look. Clean cut and fitted/tailored clothes.

AC, I know you know about that man.

I see alot of men-I'm talking middle aged men-wearing college t shirts and baseball caps like they're reliving their frat days.

I saw a grown-a** man with DROOPY JEANS yesterday...

A man doesn't have to wear a suit and tie to look clean and polished though.

Not at all, nice pants and a casual shoe and shirt. On my worst day, I look better than many on their best. I can be wearing a pair of my old khakis, a nicely pressed shirt and still get compliments. It also helps to present yourself with an ora of being polished.

LOL.....I just noticed you said DROOPY JEANS.

That's funny.

Im believing more and more each day that this site is frequented by metrosexuals more than any other type. whats wrong with wearing jeans and tshirts? heck im 40 and wear tshirts illustrated with comic villains, fantasy art, fast food logos, and other various illustrations. I find it insulting for ppl to tell me im suppose to look like a lawyer or investment banker.

Also, I see men in the office, jeans on a wednesday and not even tucking the shirt inside. My boss was once fretting on how men dress horrible even to work these days.

This whole business casual culture needs to go. It's turned many lazy.

You go to the office, you do justice to your job and pay respect to it. How will people take you seriously if you are in jeans and you are in a profession? Worst offenders are IT guys. And they all love how google employees go to work so casually. There's nothing admirable about going to work in casuals

Then I head to the finance and other LOB departments, and they have a mandatory dress code. IT is the worst.

No one said it was wrong to wear T-shirts.

But, maybe in your 40's wearing tshirts with 'various illustrations' showcases immaturity to some.

Not necessarily about dressing like a lawyer or banker, but dressing your age.

College folk shouldn't dress like they're in high school (yet, they often do and the two blend together) and professionals shouldn't dress like college folk.
