mmm...whatever

You know it seems to me that my parents and my in-laws have always dressed like respectable human beings. They wear clothes that are fitting for their age bracket and they manage to look decent doing it. There seems to be growing confusion among people who should know better about what age to dress. My thinking is this, don't dress like your kids! I don't go around wearing onesies and footed pj's, but even if I did I wouldn't look half as ridiculous as these 60 year old guys I see walking around with highlights in their hair, earings, soul patches, chops, abusing the words "dude" and "bro" sporting skater clothes and wearing sunglasses even though they're inside.

Nice Post Dude.
Hey, can I keep wearing my cargo shorts, t-shirts and flips? Let me know if I am too much of a geek dork. I promise I'll be careful what I wear around you if you tell me the truth.
Thanks Bro.

Where are you when you see such interesting people? I didn't know that Evanston had such a variety of older people. Are they at the Sr. Citizen Center?

I mostly spot them in Park City...no suprise there I guess.

- Doug, I think your style of dress is completely acceptable, you're a gentleman and a scholar.

Eric, I'm offended! That's the only plan I had for my quarter/mid/three quarter life crisis'. -Brad
