'Tunia,

My apologies, the passage I recall was not a actual event but more of a "what if" seduction scenario from many many moons ago. And it wasn't a public hot tub. I empathize with the thought of "contaminants" - though my reluctance would be from other men (hadn't even thought of women's "contaminants").

How 'bout we put this aside as a frustrated old man's overactive imagination, eh?

What not to wear as a man at my age is skinny jeans.

I do dress younger than my age since I shop in the young men's section. I have revamped my jeans part of my wardrobe by stepping away from my baggy cut jeans and going to a relaxed bootcut style. I feel it gives me a more streamlined look.

Since I wear either a large or extra large in shirts, I'm leaning more towards large as the extra large tends to look a bit more baggy and long. I'm keeping the extra large ones that fit a little smaller.

Change is always good. Nothing drastic, just a little tweaking. I didn't realize my look had become a bit dated (early to mid 2000s).

Cooldog........more men need to think like you do. It's sad when a man in his 60's is still stuck dressing in the 70's.

I was going to be flippant about just cause it fits, white belts then I realized I ordered leather shorts. They will need to use the Jaws of Life to get them off me when the hot weather happens..
meanwhile I am a bit of a fashion snob
I like white shirts, on men, untucked, with a t shirt under.
Not a wife beater
No woman over 12 should wear terry towel anything, or tube tops.
No man should wear bike shorts unless on said bike

Glad to see someone likes that style of casual dress. :) A staple

Any male over 10 in a speedo and any woman over 45 in a bikini. White belts on men, white shoes unless they are sneakers. Low rise plumbers butt jeans on any gender, any age.

Double crap

In my defense;
a) they need to stop making buttcrack jeans for crists sakes. It's either that or maternity/granny jeans.
b) I am genetically born with no ass
c) I wear super long shirts that cover the whole freaking non existing ass ... and a shirt over that one..... just to be sure.

Yep! You're 16 -- you're well past the age! No tube tops for you! But you can sleep with a desperate forumite in Maine (see other thread) and it'll be kosher. Just no tube tops!

Well, in swimming, the modern-day suit is either much-of-the-body covering suit or biker-shorts. Beats a speedo you aren't so fond of, right?

a) they need to stop making buttcrack jeans for crists sakes. It's either that or maternity/granny jeans.

Oh, Mom Jeans, you mean? "I'm not a woman anymore... I'm a mom!" I don't know about Canadia, but there seems to be plenty of jeans that are non-butt-crack and non-Mom-Jeans.

b) I am genetically born with no ass

Well, you could do some a$$ exercises -- and in the mean time wear granny panties to ensure any crack is covered when bending over, if that's all the fashionable jeans that are available...

c) I wear super long shirts that cover the whole freaking non existing ass ... and a shirt over that one..... just to be sure.

Or wearing non-jeans underneath (like ladies boxers?) could help, too. After all, if it's cold enough up there to wear two long shirts, it's cold enough to do that. Unless one's aiming for visible a$$-crack shots or panty shots. Then obviously neither are needed.

I am always shopping for new things to wear a couple times a week LOL. I wear what I like and I wear what is in style and it looks good on me.

Wow... either styles change every week where you're at, or you haven't heard the invention of a Washing Machine. And they make dryers, too! :)

Bike shorts are for bikes
Tube tops are for tubes
Charmin - 'm sure you have a delightful bottom.
I will be happy when pant rises a bit higher.. altho the high waisted jeans don't suit me either. We can wear suspenders LOL
No idea what the Maine forumite is all about btw NG. Of course you keep thinking it is the 90s :/

If a gal has a bod like Charm, she can wear tube tops, tubes, asspants, etc.

Those silly rules like do not wear white after Labor Day, etc. were created by some Ole Church Lady doing her Church Chat w/ other Church Ladies.

I think the ladies intrinsically know what looks good on them and what doesn't. I say that I am my own fashion statement, which means if you don't like what I'm wearing, look at someone else. I think whatever we wear, we should feel comfortable wearing it and also not worrying about what everyone else thinks. Trends will come and go, so wear what looks good on you and you feel comfortable with, and poo on what people have to say about it.

NO man should wear skinny jeans. Oh the horror.

Speaking of….those skin tight “jeggings” for women…?? SMH
The stupidest part of that commercial is the woman who says they make her feel “fit and toned.” Uh huh.

"I am genetically born with no ass" Charmin

Me too. Back when I cared a whole lot more than I do now, I used to do a lot of backwards walking. It really helped define my behind...looked pretty crazy, tho' ...

I think those are okay, if you are somewhat proportioned. And with a long tunic top.

Speaking of commercial porn, I have enjoyed some of those jegging commercials.

Like spandex, just because it stretches doesn't mean it meant for everybody.

Nosebleed high heels with jeans...to me they just look silly, and try way too hard.
Bottle blonde hair that does nothing for your natural coloring.


I live in the nation's capital, a gov't town where women are known for their lack of fashion sense.
Everyone looks exactly the same. I have toned it down too while living here, but still try to
style myself as an individual.
Pet peeve-those chunky knitted circular scarves that look like a horses yoke. We wear them way into summer...yuk.

^^I've some of the ethnic cowls with beading, sequins, in many colours and patterns you name it. They look great against black anything with boots and bangles and drop earrings.

I push the accessories.

Sharon Osbourne disparaged Madonna as an old hooker for wearing a leotard. Not fan of Madonna as a person but with her incredible muscle tone, I think she looks great bodywise. Am sure her visage must've benefited from some work. If someone looks good for their age, I don't think I'd be rigidly criticizing their clothing choices. Context has an effect. Might be this'll piss somebody off but to me, it reeks of try-hard if man's effort to dress young is to attract young lasses. I guess the female equivalent of a cougar cum mutton dressed as lamb so to speak, is thought to be no better. Anyway, I thought an old granny lady with white, long hair really rocked her Doc Martens, trenchcoat, over-sized flower in hair and sunnies ensemble..wrinkles n all. Different. I liked it. Seeing that, I thought too bad more elderly ladies don't dress outside the box like her.

wear granny panties to ensure any crack is covered

Lots of women over 50 wear bikinis and look just fine. I don't think its age, its physique, and your attitude towards your physique.

I know...I love it when people take the trouble to style themselves. And I don't just mean tattoos and lots of eye makeup.

I like it when people take what they've got and build on that. And I can't wait until my hair starts to go grey...I'm dyeing :) to be blonde, without the high maintenance dark root problem.

The only thing I don't wear, is what doesn't look good on me.
Otherwise, I wear what I want regardless of what others think.

I'm sort of old and I still keep my hair long, I love flower pins
and headbands and facinators and hats...and I wear pearls or
necklaces or whatever else I'm feeling on that particular day.

I wear what makes me feel good and if someone doesn't like
it or thinks I shouldn't be looking like I do, they can look the
other way.

With that said, if someone does look at me askance, I figure I
deserve it and I'm okei with that. I just assume others feel the
same if I should look at them with a WTF expression.

Initially the attire on her struck me as unusual, particularly the Doc Marten boots. But once I got over that, I thought good onya lady. I especially liked it coz she didn't look like your typical little old lady.
Maybe with the elderly not getting the recognition much less have the wisdom and experience from a lifetime lived utilized and preserved in the community, I found her take notice, I'm still relevant, about ready to kick some ass look :D worth mentioning.
There was this elderly academic.. articulate, intelligent, feisty. With good health intact, she took her own life because she feared her health deteriorating from old age plus she was sick of living (possibly had a mental disorder.. what person in their right mind and all..). Such a sad, terrible waste of her abilities..her history..
Conversely, on one Greek island it's not uncommon to find long-lived inhabitants, centenarians, with low disease rates enjoying life. Along with other factors like diet, less stressful way of life, physical activity levels and even genetics that must be tied into it, some other interesting facts I read is they don't put their old in old people's homes. They are very much included in the island's social scene..no age group is excluded. Everybody joins in the dancing. Imagine a 100 yo not leaving the party 'til 2am. They make for interesting study.

While I am all for wearing what you want, and not giving a shit what others think, at the same time I can't help but laugh at older women who look like they're trying to compete with their 19 year old daughter, who happens to be trying her best to look like a porn star.

Hello Kitty clothes, wild hair colors, suddenly deciding to get their entire arm tattooed, etc.

There was a time when it was the other way around. The younger girls were always emulating older women, and it really wasn't that long ago.

I hear ya, Pig. I always feel a little bit embarrassed for that person.

There are so many things we can do with our looks, other than what is currently considered coolest. Tattoos have been done to death IMO.

I have had some interesting comments re: my profile comment on tattoos on Meryl Streep. I'm not saying I'm the calibre of person that MS is, but that a tattoo on me, even the little dolphin, would be all wrong. I just like my art on the wall.

I loved the Betty Paige look, dark hair with short bangs, when it first resurfaced about 10 yrs. ago.
I don't like wild colored hair on anybody, even the 19 year olds looks clownish.

Sometimes I'll straighten my hair like Pig's, and throw on a black leather jacket I have had since 1990, and get approving looks and the odd compliment.

Another day I might do the 40's wave and a touch of red lipstick. Nothing over the top, just wholesome and subtle, but a nod to another. It doesn't mean I'm high maintenance, it doesn't take long when you have a plan.

I saw a young girl at my college yesterday, no makeup, great hair, with white ankle socks, black mary janes and a crafty skirt. She was the coolest in a group of tattooed and straigt haired others , she really owned it. Think she is onto something.
