I don't wear caps/hats that often, but If I do it's to shade my eyes if I'm not wearing sunglasses as I can get headaches in bright sunlight.

Yes, I call them "my jeans".

Yeah, it's called "that one early afternoon my pants actually fit."

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

I haven't worn jeans in 20 years. They're uncomfortable and I hate 'em.

^If they're uncomfortable you're wearing the wrong ones!

Plus: they're durable, cheap, comfy, easy to clean 'stuff' off and can take anything your washer/drier does to them without looking worse for it, in fact; the more you wash 'em the better they look.

Jeans are uncomfortable for me, no matter what the size.

Now I just buy black khaki pants from Target or Costco. Besides I can wear them to work and at leisure.

I love watching the European telling the American the joys of something so traditionally American! But I'm with you, TD. I love jeans, especially now that they usually have just a tad of stretch to them.

Well... they are "de Nīmes"


Oh: it's not about 'size' but about 'shape' (/cut/model/...).

pheeew I'm glad to hear that. Besides, many bald(-ish) men are quite sexy! Just think of Yul Brynner or a certain Enterprise Captain =)

actually, they were invented by Jacob Davis, a gentleman from Poland, and made popular by Levi Strauss, a German (Bavarian, even). So Jeans are a quite European invention, on the whole

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

The only thing I ever needed to know about jeans is this:

Money talks, but it don't sing and dance and it don't walk.

Give you young'uns a little time to work that one out.

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

there's no such thing as being too old for your clothes.

there is however the problem of old people wearing exclusively beige and grey clothes that look hideous.

Yes, I know. But where did they become so overwhelmingly part of the culture?

While we're still on the subject: I don't think I have any jeans

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

I might have a few pairs stowed away in the cellar somewhere. - You know: pack away anything you don't use and when a year has passed without you using it; throw it away!

But yeah: in the summer I wear 'cargo'-shorts, in winter I wear sweatpants at home or (black) 'cargo'-pants...





To say it with other words: I have 10 Kg to go before I can fit into them
