That's my point. By the way - I'm 39, and I do have suits from Brioni, Canali, Corneliani, etc. But when it comes to casual or even "club" wear, I always felt the college/recent grad crowd would already think people my age were too old for the stuff you guys talk about here.
Was I/am I wrong?
Thanks for the replies.
if that 50 year old had style nudies or apc would look fine.
stuff from a&e and ambercrombie doesnt really look good on most anyway but is really aiming at kids under 25. and heavily pre distressed jeans are always going to look trendy. beat up jeans can look nice if they are genuine (like a pair of vintage levis say) but i think the difference between style and trend has been covered.

agreed. again if you are stylish and know how to dress you can wear whatever you want till you hit the grave.
