Jeans for middle-aged men - Page 4

post #46 of 57
I'm in my 50's and I love the Levis 1947 501XX from their LVC series. I probably have five pairs. I like that they are somewhat trim but not tight. Here is how they fit.

from your profile picture, I always imagined you as a 20 something, and probably somewhat of a jackass. Hearing that you are in your 50s is hilarious btw those are a pretty good fit

I'll take all of that as a compliment! Thanks!

I'm not too far from PSG age-wise. Spent some time in Denim Bar and on Mauro's advice came out with some KMW 1980s. The fit is awesome, get all kinds of great compliments but even so wondering if I should have sized down one more (32 from 33).

^^^ pocketsquareguy. that's actually quite a nice fit for any jean. i don't know about the so called 'jeans for middle-aged men' or whatnot, being that i'm not really a middle-aged man, but i think the rules still apply for young people as well. that is, buy silhouettes that suit accordingly to your body type. alright, that's a common thing to say. after all, everyone knows that a fat guy can't wear skinny jeans without looking like, well... a fat guy wearing skinny jeans. not good. about wearing skinny jeans on a middle aged man. well it's definately not common, but who says it can't be done? the only reason that we're into this whole paradigm that men should wear straight legged/bootleg jeans when they reach a certain age is merely a product of our own social bias. after all, i'm sure that all the rockstars of age didn't get into their forties and just out of the blue decide that they've gotta change their fashion style. i'm just saying wear whatever the hell you like as long as you look good in it. there's no definitive jean, no definitive shape and no definitive age that requires you to change.

This is an example of how to do it wrong, J Depp at the Peoples Choice Awards. I think if your old enough to vote then these jeans are too young for you.

that is the only bad photo of Johnny Depp. He looks awful.

Getting some nice compliments when coupled with a Zegna sport shirt and similar buttoned shirts, and my black monk straps (brown monks are on the way).

Thanks for all the comments. I think I'll stick with these two modestly-priced pair for a bit (but I have my eye on the Last Call and Off 5th outlets for the good stuff)

Thanks again.
Just the thought of Express jeans, a Zegna shirt and a pair of monk straps justifies the Patrick Stewart face-palm; someone please bring it.

You bumped this thread to display that pic of Depp and all you critique are the jeans?

M'kay. See, the flaw in this whole post is attitude. Im 39, but in no way look or dress or think like I should 'be' middle aged. Fuck that shit.

If you're a conservative prep-school Brooks Brothers wearin' broker/lawyer dude, then it doesn't matter if you're 26 or 46. Those Thin Finns are gonna look ghey on you with what you've got in your wardrobe.

Alternately, I see older dudes from the 2nd gen. punk scene around here pushing fifty and still looking awesome in their cuffed repros.

'Middle-aged' is all attitude. I think it has more to do with what else you're used to wearing and where you wear it, and who with. (and also how fat or conservative you are).
