    Can we make dungarees with a pocket on the chest fashionable?

    That pocket is just crying out for my glasses.

    I remember having a Lord Anthony parka, I vaguely remember that the pockets ended up terribly sticky with the remnants of space dust from discarded packets and it had to go.

    You could use those chain things that attach to the arms  and let them hang 🙂

    That’s surely a parody on middle aged americans .  Or a stealth ad for JP Penney

    Whereupon this older man has a quick shufti, and says “yeah, whatever” 🤷🏼

    And this older man followed a couple of links/brands and went “How much!”.

    TBF, they all are better dressed than me though.

    I’m not sure that age has anything to do with what you should wear, the issues more around the fit and especially around the beer gut.

    I also think your fashion taste also come from the time you grow up so you have to be a little adventurous and try new things on as it’s easy to stay in a fashion time warp.

    Just remember it’s better to age disgracefully 🙂

    There are certain things you wear when younger that would look a bit daft on a 50+ guy

    But I don’t get the ‘older guys shouldn’t wear jeans’ mantra

    Right.. Today’s shopping on a p*ss wet day.

    Some nice shirts from M&S and TK Max. Tick.

    A nice pair of smart 5-pocket trousers, a pair of chinos and a slightly smarter trousers? What a faffage.

    Some 34″ waists if fitted nicely. But the legs didn’t like my cyclist thighs or too tight in the front crotch.

    The 34″ waists that were too tight fitted nicely on my thigh and calf. But uncomfortably tight on the waist.

    So I tried 36″ waist – too loose on the waist for most. And baggy around the front crotch.

    Tried to go to a slim cut 36″ waist – butt and crotch fitted nicely. Thighs and calf were then too tight.

    Leather jackets if you’re no longer a Hells (on an MTB) Angel – is there an age limit?

    “Thighs and calf were then too tight”

    Now if you’d got yourself some 3/4 length trousers that wouldn’t have been a problem 🙂
