Re: How to know when you're too old for your clothes

I know I commit fashion faux pauxs with my sweatshirts and sweatpants, but at this point I don't give a rip. If they get messed up, I don't get too upset. And considering I take care of little kids and my mother, they're going to get messed up. I also have no choice but to wear sneakers most of the time.

Happy Birthday!!! and #12 (my personal #1) wearing these horrible baggy pants with the bottom dangling around the wearer's knees ought to lead to immdiate castration in order to avoid this perversion to be passed on to any (unlikely as this might seem) offspring.
Happy Birthday, Smellincoffee!

I remember when those cute running shorts were in fashion, leaving so much eye candy for a gay guy. Today, it is the "sagger" look... jeans belt hanging below the bum. If girls can wear Daisy Duke short shorts, then guys can wear saggers. I like my eye candy, too!

Re: How to know when you're too old for your clothes

I rather prefer a male bottom packed up nicely and firmly. It doesn't have quite the same appeal if a pair of mealworm-white bulges wobbles above a belt..(or unmentionables that truely live up to their name)

Compare:

Re: How to know when you're too old for your clothes

I hate the backwards hat, but I sometimes have to use it practically at work to act as a sweatband when I have goggles on.

Even worse is people who have a hat on and driving at the same time. It just irks me. And it's connected with a category of "driver" I'd rather not be connected with.


Also, sweatpants, really? I haven't worn sweatpants outside of working out since I was 15.

31 and I wear my baseball caps backwards, thank you. Sometimes (so as to fit in with the young crowd) I wear it sideways.

I must be rather sad, in the fact that I wear clothes that are comfortable wear and don't try to strangle me, squeeze me etc...

Re: How to know when you're too old for your clothes

The only time I wear baseball caps is when I'm at a baseball game, and in those instances, I always wear it forward.

As for clothes? When I'm not working, I also rock a baseball motif, at all times. Sweaters in cold weather, T-shirts in warm. Often baggy.

You have to believe in fashion in order to commit a faux pas against it. Not always going to happen.
You can choose not to believe in a speed limit, yet still commit a violation by exceeding it there, friend.

Ignorance may be bliss, but it is no license for breaking the rules (hard or soft). And wow, some people really do make quite a go of it with fashion. I agree with Teacake that most men don't know what fashion is, only what's extremely comfortable or very convenient--for them. Once in a while they collide with accepted style...

Re: How to know when you're too old for your clothes

I'm 37, but i'm in a jam band, so my hair is OK apparently.

Any age is too old to wear a cap backwards, or any other item of clothing for that matter.

That's probably right. And I prefer it that way. Rules? What rules?

srsly though, I'm not trying to be deliberately obtuse, but I do take issue with the concept of 'rules' in fashion, as if there's things that I am required to wear just because everyone else is. Like I said, I just wear normal black pants, plus T-shirts (in warm weather) and sweaters (when it's cold). Those things will always be "permissible" to wear, they are outside all considerations of style that I can see. So there is no danger it will run into such arbitrary and shallow definitions like "fashion".

Surely there is a middle ground between "so tight I can see your bollocks" and "I made this out of a potato sack"?

Baseball caps have a particular significance in american culture I'm not qualified to comment on - however in the UK, expect for a short period where they were very popular in the 1990s, you are now most likely to see them on:

1) That guy in a rain-coat hanging around outside a school

2) An offender on a work gang

3) People fishing

Re: How to know when you're too old for your clothes

^ I wear caps during games because I have to - otherwise my head will become burned. Not having hair, and all that.

^ I get so few bald jokes (it seems that guys who have a *little* bit of hair get more ridicule than us baldies!) that I will actually laugh at that.
