The OP is unsure about what to wear and wants a safe solution. If you're like a couple of the 40+ people I know and don't have that problem you don't need to ask online...

Plus, I'm careful because I expect many things to go wrong, which might involve my clothes being destroyed. Dunno what your income level is but I can't afford to be puking/having people spill drinks on my $200 shirts and shit.

I walked into one of the bars around my area, and the bathroom floor was pretty much all pissed on, would you advise someone to wear their designer sneaks inside such an area?

I wear my TB and other cashmeres out. I spill on my 200-300$ shirts all the time, especially when drunk dancing. just wash and repeat.

now I'm thirty five. I look across the clubs and say "this whole place is full of fucking kids. school get out or some shit?"

Of course, those kids are all looking at me saying "check that dude out, fuuuck, he's like thiiiiiirty or something. Shouldn't he be home with his fat wife and nine kids by now?"

It's perfectly plausible for a 50 year old to have the most swag in the club. Most are just too intimidated or busy playing the 'acceptable roles' (sugar daddy, etc.) because they don't want to be hassled by the conformity police. No surprises, best to play it safe.

Yea I mean I dont even think dude has posted a pic of himself, how the fuck can ppl tell what would work for him Plus, getting dressed by consensus doesn't exactly speak to dude's personal sense of style I mean if he gets all dressed up in SF garb and feels awkward in it what difference does it make? OP just has to turn up the swag and follow his heart. Be like Mike. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I think the key to going out clubbing when older and not look like that guy is to go with a girl that is roughly your age. A friend maybe. Going out with a girl has always brought me luck with lady's in the past. In your situation it will look like you are going out to have fun with somebody of your age and not being creepy.

Are there no clubs for older crowds? Probably wouldn't be called clubs, but more like association or supper club or.... Oh wait club is the proper, traditional term. Club now means a squalid building gutted to stick in a shitty bar and a big open wide space for the people to dance in.

Fuuma, you nailed it. There are those who believe 45 year olds should stay at home, watching the telly...an old dog, laying down to die in the leaves. But I love the clubs, the loud crappy music, the douche baggage, spilled drinks, strobe lights...

Favorite is the Blue Parrott Lounge, Rhodes City, Island of Rhodes.
