Maybe I'm in different circles, but I thought the only people talking about that kid were the weirdos on youtube. I'm not really sure how someone can get so much hate for making lukewarm pop music. Maybe I'm just getting too old and out of touch, because I didn't imagine he was significant enough to drive public opinion on clothes.

Wear it real skinny. otherwise, yes, you're a cute little grandpa. Slim as in shoulders, sleeves, chest, back, waist, and short.

+1.
I think this goes for almost everything in your closet, the same thing can look very different depending on how it´s cut and how your are wearing it.

The most important thing is the fit...

If it is ill-fitted , you will also look bad especiay with such pattern...

To be acceptable on a young person, the fit must be tailored..

Oh yeah....those check plaid patterns, those fat lapels...that jacket is so SF approved....all the SF die hards would kill for that jacket!

I wouldn't say it's "old man", but if you wore that back in 1978, you'd be the grooviest swinger at the meat-market single's bar and the shine of that disco ball dangling above your feathered doo would really accentuate those Herb Talek designs.

Once you put on that jacket, you're bound to graduate to bigger things....and next thing you know, you'll be sport'n a look compatible with some of the SF approved all-time, hall of famers......

If you act like an old man then yeah. It will look like a grandpa sportcoat. I'm 27, and I have one in the same pattern...I always get compliments on it.

I'm 30 and I say you can definitely pull that off. It's all about the confidence.

This is more of the youthful look you want:

I've been looking for a Herb ensemble for years.

Cut trumps fabric in terms of whether it looks like a young man vs. an old man. By young man I mean someone who is actually a grown up.

I'm also assuming you'd be wearing it at an appropriate time, as opposed to playing dress up.

I'm 30 and I do not see any problem with it (disclaimer: I also own a tweed full-length overcoat)

I do prefer something with a little more color like the picture close-up attached.

I will reiterate what other's have said, it is all about the fit.

And if the fit is "boxy" like you're saying, take it to a tailor already. Problem solved.
