    so when I was like 18, I used to look across the clubs and these guys and say to my friends "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?"

    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?"

    they wont say that if youre in vip popping bubbly with a gang of broads. which is the only thing that should be happening if youre that old in a club.

    What? 45. That's creepy

    I wouldn't say it's creepy. I mean he didn't start a thread saying he was going to a middle school dance with a bottle of grey goose in his coat.

    "Clubbing" at 45+ is mostly creeper status

    Note that "clubbing" is not the same thing as "ending up at a club."

    If you've got some younger friends/co-workers and they want to go out to a club, and you want to socialize, that's fine. But if so, honestly my advice is to dress your age. Much better to not look like you're an old dude trying to go hard with the youngsters -- just be like "yeah I'm 47, fuck of it? My social life was never murdered by a baby."

    I suppose in general I'd stay away from ravey/dance-heavy/standing-room-only sort of clubs, stick to a place where you can grab a seat with your friends, dress age-appropriate, and dress more casual than not (not lazy, but casual).

    My dad sort of falls into this category -- he's 55 but his employees are mostly 20s-30s, and he has a wide range of friends from 24-65. He does end up at clubs but he doesn't try to dance, his first choices for social outings are more age-appropriate, and he generally looks like he doesn't give a fuck. He is not someone who would ever purposefully attempt to go "clubbing."

    But even then dude's still sort of creeper-status and bangs a lot of 20-somethings with daddy issues, so I don't know if you can get any better than ~20% on the creep-ometer

    "socially appropriate", "age appropriate", blah blah blah. If you guys are so concerned about conforming, perhaps you should start by buying a Filson bag, raw selvedge denim, and some GATs. You'll fit right in around here.

    I don't know why but a neon green or yellow shirt just sounds awesome to me. Where could I get one?

    I am over 45 and look about 39, slim and fit, and will be clubbing in NYC, Toronto and other cities this spring and summer. As much as I like stylish clothing for clubs, I am aftraid I will look like "that guy" who just couldn't let go... I saw them all the time in the mid-seventies, when I was young: the long sideburns, the Beatle hair and bell bottom dress pants. Anyway I don't want to be that guy. I was thinking that a real slim and fitted suit, and impecable shirt of neon green or yellow, and a tie would look better than jeans and a button down. That would be stylish without appearing to be an under cover agent. The clubs play mostly hip hop, techno.
    a well tailored suit is the best idea. DO NOT WEAR SOMETHING NEON GREEN/YELLOW or anything over the top. WEAR VERY NICE SHOES ... DO NOT WEAR BEAT UP SHOES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. in fact, go buy new shoes ... something by dior homme, gucci, guidi or sf (if you are going on the cheap). the trick is to look like your not trying to hard. good luck and take pics if you get some 19 year old pooh-pooh ... and ALWAYS know who you are accepting drugs from [​IMG]

    I hope that you're going to an age appropriate nightclub. If that's the case, I'd recommend dark grey dress pants and a slim, dark colored dress shirt. Just make sure you get the pieces from a brand that is a bit fashion forward so it doesn't look like you're wearing office clothes.

    I'm much younger than you are but, when I go out, I often wear a navy shirt with subtle stripes tucked into charchol dress pants with black shoes and a belt. I've never felt out of place even at dive bars. You just need the confidence to look natural in whatever you are wearing.
