All the people that were pointed out as being 'older' and having good fits all have figured out what hair style works for their face/body. It looks great.


Add glasses to this if one wears them.

Just my teeny tiny opinion.

For me, at least, I'm having a lot more trouble deciding on hair and beard length than anything else.

Agreed. I've been putting off a cut for a while. But just so happens tomorrow's the day.

I think those boots work much better with that color of pant, stitchy - but I feel like the jeans could be just a tad slimmer and I don't really like the stark under the SS...

Something tells me the answer to this will be "it depends on how I feel when I wake up and whether or not I have business to which I must attend."

thanks, guys!

my issue is my larger derrière seems to necessitate a larger size waist, which then makes the legs wider than optimal. im going to order these in a size smaller and hope they fit and look slimmer, and return whatever size is less awesome looking on me. if i need to stay with these, ill taper the legs. same for the black levis i think.

lmao, what do you not like about the stark underneath? i think its a cool look.

lawlz. yes and no. the general decrease in rigidity is nice, but when MC stuff fits right, its plenty comfy. plus, my tie is rarely done all the way up during the day.

OH NOES!! DONT BAN ME MC!!

Over the past five years or so I've enjoyed filling my closet with nice stuff. MMM, Raf, some Prada, EG, OL, Beams, Jil, and more recently SLP. But I spent many years of my life very heavy and very out of it both stylistically and just in general. Now I'm getting back to a weight I like (165) but the downside of that is that so much of what's in my closet doesn't fit well anymore.

I'm lucky that I've been successful enough as a musician to travel around the world (as far as Japan and NZ) and I'm not showing any signs of stopping. So my goal is to look as good as I can while making and performing music while maintaining a level of age-appropriatness. It sounds tricky but I believe it can be done.

Hoping to glean some tips and direction from this forum while trying not to tax you all's patience.

Thanks for hearing me out and I look forward to looking better good.

1) Dress like you want, this dude doesn't need a collar at 65 http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/06/nyregion/clayton-patterson-rebel-and-photographer-plans-to-leave-the-lower-east-side-for-europe.html?_r=1
2) With that said, a clean look I like in an adult who behaves like an adult (not an adulescent) but doesn't want to dress like a e-gentleman (an adolescent fantasy of what an adult is like), is a crisp white dress shirt everyday with a pair of dark or black jeans, simple boots (like MMM zips or maybe those SLP motorcycle ones) and a nice sweatshirt or simple sweater. Add a leather or parka or something that has been worn for a while and you have a winner.
