    What about double denim? I tried it when it was meant to be in fashion a few years ago but my friend said I looked like an asylum seeker icon_redface.gif

    Could you post more of the appropriate denim options and style names, as I have to go shopping for jeans for the first time in 3 years soon. Don't wear jeans that often. Please school me Master.

    Please no skinny jeans I inherited thick thighs.

    You have a lot of opinions as to what other people should do.

    I'm glad you came out of the closet now stay out of mine.

    Do you have nothing more important to spend your time on other than what clothes people should or should not wear?

    It's the models with chicken legs that make the jeans look really bad. Skinny, or fat legs look terrible in baggy jeans. They just get lost in them, or in the case of fat legs, the gravity and the weight of the jeans create all the worst angles. If you have muscular legs those jeans look sooo different. Obama has a nice butt, but those skinny legs, lololol. Love him as the president though! icon_biggrin.gif

    Actually, for some of us who are a bit oblivious to good style choices ... guys like Anduru (McQueen) are a huge help.

    It is a useful, if not occasionally saucy service he provides us. icon_smile.gif

    That said - please feel free to recommend any tasteful recommendations for cuts and brands.

    I tend to keep my colour palette more toward the standard range of black, charcoal grey, and dark blue for denim.

    RJ would be good prep for reality TV, because it forces you to have a thick skin.

    If Bill or I were to dress like you McQueen, no doubt we'd look rather foolish, don't you think? Your suggestions are for the young and virile.

    I wear jeans that fit, but I don't like that super dark, new denim look.

    Same, plus resinated fabrics are scratchy and dont breathe well in our climate here icon_sad.gif

    I do like the current denim colours here though, straight leg, hipster styles with the flat color burgundy / portwines / amber / cerulean / softer oat and gold tones

    I have been seeing some double denim here... it always makes me wonder if people really do get away with it ..

    I agree.. no dad jeans for me. They are not flattering at all and sometimes physically uncomfortable. I prefer more form fitting jeans, but not skinny jeans. So while some of you are giving McQueen a hard time, I think he is right on this one for me and probably a lot of others.


    but like most things ,they can serve a function. the closest to acceptable for myself is if I am doing something that might be me dirty. ie. yard work.

    in regards to today's denim choices, the faded patches and rips need to stop. For the love of God, I do not want to spend $75 for used jeans.

    I agree. Dad jeans are hideous.

    People need to think about fit when they buy clothes. I love a good bargain. But sometimes cheap is cheap for a reason. I bet MIL look super good in crisp, well fitted and made, classic styles. icon_biggrin.gif

    On the other hand, not everyone needs to look like a fashion devotee. It's all about time, place and age. Some of the looks Andrew posts are fun but if I, as a 50+ guy in DC, tried to wear them, people would laugh out loud. I have often got in trouble on vacations buying things that looked great where we were, but I could never find an opportunity to wear at home.

    Bingo. In fact, Mcqueen had a topic about older guys 40+ and appropriate style. Perhaps he's forgotten that.

    Now that would be an interesting thread...as someone who is fixing to hit 40, I find the khakis, jeans and solid tees from the Gap are the most age appropriate for me or at least I think they are. icon_neutral.gif

    Some men can rock them. But they have to pretty much have a blue collar occupation for that, such as cowboy or farmer.

    And on a slightly relevant note I now want a roll in the hay with a beefy blonde Iowa farmboy thinkin' about this. Great... icon_redface.gif
