    Re: Trials and tribulations of fashions you went through?

    Iíll be 43 next month and I still buy logo t-shirts and umpteen trainers like I did in my teens and 20ís. I sometimes catch my wrinkly face in the mirror and think to myself ďhmmm, youíre probably a bit old for this get up now loveĒ but then again I think we have definitely reached a time where young, middle aged and old are wearing similar things. That said, Iím always amazed that some classically old dressed old people are still around. I mean old men with flat caps and proper big coats and trousers or old women with twin sets etc. They look like the old people of my youth.

        I'm in a similar position, still buying clothes that would look out of place on a teenager.

        I've also noticed a lot of older people dress like people of a similar age would 40 year ago, when they would have barley been middle aged.

          I think that I will refer back to that if I ever buy those sort of clothes in order to remind myself that I am still normal.

            Are you referring to it being worn properly or back to front?

            Never mind about hats, I am just grateful for the hair on my head.

                  One of the things the noughties can giv the 80s that the 80s/90s never had is the Man-Bag look with branded T-Shirt and Windrunner and said Man-Bag worn over your chest as if your doing an inpersonation of Roy Cropper photoing Trains - not as I am slating guys like Roy, but they are all so small only a small Camera could fit in to them .... anyway though i am pleased even at 40 plus I can copy to good effect that guys 25 years younger are doing .... (and i may ... may add a pic minus the face of course) for illustrating reasons!
