^Steve looks to be in his early to mid forties in that photo.

 

I'm not about to wear any sneakers.

Just ridiculous to say people should not do x or y past this age or that.

Depends on the person and the context and the item.

You are way too old to be saying things like that.

How ridiculous? Just, very, super or absolutely bloody ridiculous?

Mildly, or possibly not at all. Though how good are the words 'absolutely bloody' when they are together.

A pair of suede sneakers are fine or (pushing the limits) Dunlop volley.

Speaking of sneakers, am I silly to be thinking of getting these for summer?

Yes, I know that they're too expensive for what they are, but they're still tempting me.

They look good JM but we both know your too old for them and I doubt your children will approve.

Preferred sneakers of the SF lawn bowls team.

GF, they're used to my odd footwear by now - green or blue boat shoes, driving mocs, striped espadrilles. Plain white, knitted sneakers would be positively dull!

Had a look at some snaps from the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week's "Mister Runway" show.

 

The usual crop of disastrously too-short, too-tight jackets - when will these people finally wake up? - but a couple of the Dom Bagnato offerings were strong.

 

I'm predicting a fairly embarrassing Melbourne Cup Week this year, featuring a motley assortment of sleeve-tattooed footballers, TV Bachelors and paleo chefs squeezed into pre-shrunk tuxedettes, sockless jodhpurs and floral leggings, being cooed over by leggily tanned blonde journalistes and vloggers of ill revlute.

 

Me? I'll be down at the TAB.
