1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    well there's always Advanced Style, which I've pulled some stuff from for "how would you like a girl to dress" but it's very, very hit or miss. Maybe someone more ambitious than me will dig through and find some stuff for this thread.

    Great thread idea, Chair Dance. I think guys should be able to keep their style of their youth and hopefully improve on it as they get older modifying as needed. Sometimes just the accumulated experience and confidence of age can make fairly tame clothes look cooler. Just being aware of what's happening in culture and fashion can help, but cultivating one's own approach/ unique look is also really appealing to me. Just one request for the thread... maybe we can get a title change from "old folks" to "old guys" or something. I'm finally used to getting called "sir", but "old folks" is pretty harsh. ;-)

    Here's a few random pics I like. I'll try to find some more with more interesting fashunzz. Good hair (and being good at something like art or film) helps, too.

    Just when I think I wanna stop by, y'all go and put something like this up.

    Here. I'll play.

    I'm an old guy. I found these chocolate Tims in a box in the closet. Twelve years old and never wore them once.
    So far, the reaction to the N&F SlimGuys on BOTH sides of sf has been...mixed.

    I barely walked 50 yards and got them this dirty already.

    Hemmed a few inches with little stacking and no cuffs would look best. I think the top picture, minus a few inches, would be good. The hem is a bit wide for stacking and the inseam a bit short for cuffing, both effects shorten your legs visually.



    Something like this, clean, but not *dress trouser* clean.

    I guess someone has to bring the hate and that person is me...

    I can take seeing younger people in highly fashionable clothing but seeing old guys in it just looks ridiculous. It looks like those old brothers I see wearing a track suit with jordans and baseball cap. I just want to say, "dress your age". That being said some of the people above wearing normal (albeit eccentric) clothing is fine.

    Half of this stuff belongs in the creepy sartorial images thread. Especially:

    "a track suit with jordans and baseball cap" is weak at any age and would get loled at in SWD.

    Most SWD gear is relatively conservative compared with the fashion runway world and should work for any adult in good physical shape.

    it depends, do they constrict your movement enough to prevent you from carrying such accessories? if your answer to that is no, my answer to you is yes. keep up the quality poasting, if nothing else it provides free advertising for your 21 ties, gucci et al.

    Some of us old guys were wearing what you call highly fashionable clothing long before it was fashionable. Hell, some of us have been wearing various styles long before many of the people here were born.
