    between the "old guys long hair" post, this one and a couple others....some people here seem overly concerned with what other people look like.

    I got my first onesie last year. They are great for winter couch slothing.
    I haven't been game to venture out of the house in it yet. If they just had more pockets they would be the perfect outfit.

    Unfortunately no, add that to the list of improvements needed along with the extra pockets.
    It does have a hood though.
    They take some getting used to, i'm still at the blinds drawn stage when wearing it.
    It's like a pair of fleece lined track pants that don't stop at the waist but instead morph into a hoodie.

    I'm over 65. Hair is uncut and long, beard is untrimmed, and long. As for "slim," well, in the words of Roger Miller, I'm "short but not too big around." I consistently wear dark T-shirts, especially when I gig, because dark hides the fact that I sweat when I gig. And most all of my tees have writing on them.

    Oh, and add in to my consistent look a Stetson hat and roper boots. This is me, 365 days a year. I've had a beard since 1980, and no one is going to see this chinny chin chin agin. Both my hair and beard have changed color over the years, but otherwise the look remains the same. If my look means I'm following a herd, I'm following from so far back that I've never seen them!

    ^ This! ;) Absolute truth here. I've said for many years that I'm not into unnatural acts like shaving and haircuts. :twisted:

    Oh yeah, that's right...I stand corrected!

    I have a Maynrd G. Krebs tuft of beard on my chin then, unconnected by my mustache.
    I also own some bongos

    This means I'm cool, right? RIGHT!?

    I'm doing it an awful lot less these days. At one point I just suddenly didn't care much to be a walking billboard, even for stuff I think is cool/clever/funny whatever

    I stopped worrying about fashion when I got out of junior high. I do believe being a fashionista may help music career; I mean look at SRV and Hendrix, among so many others. So no doubt my plain functional clothes and short hair has not served my music career. But it's nice going through life worrying about what other dudes or myself are wearing. It's all superficial. Show me what you do, not what you wear.

    However, I do appreciate women's fashion trends....I do enjoy yoga pants.

    The other day I drove past the high school when they were getting out and a bunch of dudes were wearing bright colored pajama pants. There are guys at the climbing gym that are wearing leggings now. So I guess I do notice fashion, after all. I just shake my head and wonder what this world is coming to. Good think I don't have a son that wants to dress like that.

    62 here... I've had a mustache goatee thing for a few years now. The wife likes it so I keep it. Just a few years back I liked to keep my hair short, but the fatter I got the worst it looked, so I lost some weight (about 30 lbs.) and grew the hair out. It's not so long as to be called hippie, but it is long enough to need hairspray. Here again the wife likes it so I keep it. As for black t-shirts... Well I have a few, but MUCH prefer a dark grey. I pair that with jeans and sneakers. Not even sure I own a regular pair of shoes anymore. I do have cowboy boots and work boots and a pair of dock shoes - but I'm generally in sneakers. I seldom wear cargo pants - but I do own several pair - and truth be told I'm in a black pair today. With a grey t-shirt of course.

    It wasn’t so much that I noticed what other older gentlemen looked like, simply what a gigantic percentage of older gentlemen looked like.

    Wait - what o_O

    Back in 1994, the manager of the bookstore for which I worked (I was the assistant manager) wanted me to be clean shaven. Her husband was an officer in the DPS, so I guess her ideal look for a man was a severely shorn state trooper. (Ironic that her "ideal man" ran off and left her for another woman.) She couldn't really order me to shave, but she thought she'd try the old "You'll look 10 years younger" ploy.

    Didn't work. Back in 1971, a line from John Denver's song "Poems, Prayers & Promises" really resonated with me: "It turns me on to think of growing old." So from 1971 to 2018 (my next birthday's in November), I've never had a birthday where I wasn't outright happy to be growing older. So the gray that was already showing up in my beard back around 1994 was no cause for concern on my part.

    And I certainly don't care now. Again, I'm 65, I've been married for 46 years, all three of my children are in their 40s, and I have 19 grandchildren, the oldest is 23. I want to brag about these things, so I should look this old! :twisted: Besides, this is the only look for me that my grandchildren have ever known.

    I come here for fashion advice. I was told to get suspenders and I agree with you. Belts on men of my gut girth are an exercise in the absurd. Also, I was advised to do a combover and that has suddenly made me very popular with certain ladies nostalgic for the 70’s.
