😂 well older people have lived much longer and have more experience. I wouldn’t ware a mowhawk hairstyle though but as far as clothes go it’s a personal choice not tied to age much like having sex. It’s not a cool thing when young people think about older people having sex but it’s normal to us.
I knew a guy who walked round town with five dogs, did not dress well in fact scruffy, spent hours sitting on the town hall steps, not in the lest bit stylish but he had a great personality and great charisma, he drew people to him, girls loved him.
Hi Ashley and Dorian,
Just subscribed to your Channel!
Had to watch a couple of your videos..... I warmed up pretty quickly.. #1 you guys make a Great match. “It works”
#2 Your fashion sense makes actually that! ( Sense)
#3 I was actually surprised that I was very close on all your calls when it Came to Shoes, Especially Flat tip or Long Pointed “as Dorian said the Aladdin shoe” Clothing we’re definitely on the exact same page on! I’m a young 52.:),,,, That knows the fine line between making Clothing work. Don’t wanna wear kids clothing but at the same time I love dressing in style....
If There is a such thing. I think a well dressed / Put together / Fitted Clothing all the way from The Pant, Shirt, Jacket, Bomber or P-Coats / well fitted / with a pair of Lace up boots, Chelsea, Rounded toe Monks, I prefer the single strap monks. Love the lace up Oxford and the lace up Chukka’s, Nice clean Leather white Sneeks Are Awesome and let’s not forget matching apparel, socks belts etc.
Enjoyed your presentation both you and Dorian are very well spoken individuals will be tuning in a lot more thanks for the help...
I purge my closet once every 2 months. Again, glad I found
Not quite..I'm a couple of decades over 50, as I remember..Here at the OFH a stylish shirt has no collar, is either tie dye, Bob Marley, Jimi - Hendricks or Cliffe, Dylan, or Buffett. When the Kids visit, 2005 Disney World is acceptable. Formal shirtwear however, is Hawaiian. All footwear is flip flops. of course, swim trucks over the Depends. and CBD and box or NatiBo is cheaper than pot. Timothy Leary is dead! Make love not war! Right Arm! Farm Out! I'll never forget Woodstock!
so funny - I came down here to rip on this but it's all been said already - so let me summarize - A. Who are these two babies trying to tell me how to dress? B. Just because the both of you would look like idiots in a leather jacket don't tell others they won't look good in them. C. When you are 50+ you don't care what others think of you like you do in your 20's D. Anyone my age already knows how to dress, has done it for twice as many years as both of you and when we want to impress we will blow you away - but day to day we don't give a flip.
I hate calling people older when they are in their 50's ,60's and up every one every age is older than someone so stop it and wear what you like whatever age you are can't stand people that judge other people by what they wear, I mean really!!!
I will give these two credit for good age appropriate advice for older guys like me. Now... how do they reconcile the fashion sense of so many young adults these days with sleeve tats, random tats on neck, face and hands, and the most wonderful tat of all... some dumass script across chest or wherever, proclaiming who knows what. And then there is facial piercings, particularly the nose ring (on what planet is that even remotely attractive?). I’m like, excuse me Ms, you have something gross hanging out your nose... oh wait... it’s a nose ring! Sorry, it’s still GROSS! Is that a booger hanging out... kinda hard to tell. 👀🤔🤮🤨😂
Got to the first "tip". My response! Go jump in a lake!! I'm wearing whatever the hell I want and the world doesn't like it, tough shit!! They don't check with ME first to see if I'm okay with what they're wearing so, why should I give a rats ass what they think about what I'm wearing! It's comfy, case closed!! Nothing wrong with your dad wearing shorts and a t-shirt if he wants to! he looks more comfy in that than long dress pants and a snazzy shirt. Do you, REALLY care that much about what other people think of your attire?
“Firstly, I believe a man, whether 22 or 42 or 62, should dress for his personal sartorial expression. Not some trend or random ‘must’ list. My golden rule is find your style that fits your life and sets you up to represent your best self with great fun, flair and fit.” ~ Eric Rutherford
My co-worker (older man) 42 who was descent looking started dating a 21 yr old girl and would ask me and the other younger women for advice on style and clothing . One thing I noticed is most older men don't have is separation between casual and non casual clothing . What he would wear at work would be what he would wear to go out as well . Faded jeans with those white New balance shoes. Changing his wardrobe a bit made him look more attractive and gave him a little boost in confidence and than he started working out . If your over 50 it's ok to have style aint nothing wrong with that .
Wow. Suede aside (which I wouldn't be seen dead in), that's a maximum score for me, aged 54. Mind you, a lot of the trashy stuff highlighted I had the sense (good and of style) to avoid when I was 30 years younger.
This is BS. The stressed clothes stuff and sneakers are the only correct in this. Wear calone but a scent suited to you and the rest is just rubbish. You don't have to dress like a grand pa just because you are over 50. Gym and watch your weight, when you look fit wear all the hugging stuff you want. To these two middle aged people on the video, well your time is coming. By the way the guys shirt is fit for a over 60year old. Start with him
I totally disagree with your opinion on how order men (in their 50's) should dress and look for that matter- This is why I started my channel because of opinionated people like you guys. Like in all age groups there are cloths people can't get away with wearing , but if you can pull it off then go for it and don't let anybody tell you different.
Basically using this word is, like, you know, uh,uh,uh a meaningless filler. I wear my leather flying jacket @ 65 because I was issued it in the military and every 'distressed' feature a chart of where we've been together and don't you dare say 'thankyouforyour service' instead of 'haveaniceday.' As for YOUNGER MEN trying to look older? A coifed beard styled after Czar Nicholas ll wont give street cred or gravitas from your IMPROVE YOUR VOCABULARY WORD OF THE DAY. T shirts are underwear. Clark Gable didn't wear one in a movie and it took Marlon Brando emoting STELLA! to bring them back. Jewelry at any age? Men who charted the world did it with mechanical watches so little boymen could use mapquest to get lost in their UBER ride. Aside from cufflinks or a wedding band spend the money on jewelry for your GF ( and skip those sunshine patriot MADE IN CHINA flag pins.)
A slim fitted dark color leather jacket looks good at any age.
Good Hygiene is important.
Regular fitting slacks and jeans.
And a mid size automobile.
Your grand father's watch.
And a girlfriend haft your age.
After many years listening to parents directions, in laws directions, employers directions, children's directions, neighbours directions, spouses directions, friends directions etc, etc, etc...
Would it be disrespectful to dress how I want or follow your directions ?
The trick is to be comfortable in your own skin. IDC what people think of me...like me, love me or hate me. The 3 most important things in my life are to work an honest day, eat three meals a day and keep a roof over my head.
You guys must be form f-ckin' Utah. I get compliments on my $700 leather jacket from women half my age and my boots and shoes are bad ass. In New York we don't dress like Mormons- OK? I would never hang out with either of you schlubs. Who's sponsoring this content anyway, JC Penny?
I will kill myself before I wear a fucking fringed buck skin jacket I have been wearing leather jackets on my motorcycle for over 30 years I wear leather trousers too there are warmer in the cold cool in the heat and if I go down they are a lot more abrasion resistant than me . They should advise people on fit have your clothes fit right and keep yourself fit move more eat less haven't you drank enough alcohol by the time you're 50 ? It looks bad gluggin lots of beer and trying to act young with the kids . Don't be the oldest swinger in town it's a bad look . LOL
I’m 57 and in excellent shape. I’ve worn leather jackets my entire life and will continue to do so. And, while I don’t scream look at me, I’m not trying to be demure either. Some interesting points though.
Your father in the before and after photos seemed to be dressed for two different occasions. The before was more casual and the after was a little more formal side of casual. However I agree the before photo his clothes were too big and poorly fit.
So as a 53 Year old Man, I can't wear my A+F T-Shirts anymore then? Or any of my "SuperDry" T-Shirts either? I personally find that short shirts with a tasteful logo can hide all sorts of imperfections (such as "Man Boobs") as Block Colours tend to highlight this area in older Men. I also wear nice Motorcycle themed T-Shirts for the same reason, I'm old enough to wear BSA and Triumph shirts, they hide my imperfections, and IMHO they look cool as fxxk ;)
I think T-shirts with logos are OK as long as it's not a brand name or something banal, such as ' Surfin' California'. Choose something distinctive, e.g. I have a T-shirt displaying the Knights Templar seal.
The. Democrats keep trying to get Trump with their lies. The American people are no longer fooled by two sick old dreamed who wanted to be president. Trump is playing chess the demos are playing Chinese checkers. The money u demos wasted trying to get even for the ass kicking of2016 could have cured cancer in many children
Hey guys..Please stick with Celebrity meanswear stylings..Leave the general public ,..ie;men over 50's to make their own decisions..Don't you think they/we have had enough experience in life to choose our own wardrobe?..Ergo..;you guys are just 'ageist'..You think older 'statesmen' will tell the youths what and what NOT to wear?..If one can look confident in what one wears (over 50 or not)..The leave well alone..
Right, but it is so stupid, we wonder if we are the same species... the sex drug predator network destroyed our children. No surprise, it made most of us cooperate with it, by the generalized psychopathy/Narcisistic trait games against all society!
That is where the real problem lies!
Here u go folks prime example of not knowing your ass from a hole in the ground and her having to have her phone in her hand proves it if it’s comfortable and u like it wear it . I’m 50 and show 20 -30 year old children how it’s done everyday sad but true!!!!!!!
So i'm 53 and a biker,so I should ditch the leather, faded jeans,jewellery etc and wear some slacks and comfy shoes ?WTF.I'll wear what ever the hell I want.I am a grand father but I don't want to look like I'm ready for a retirement village.I suppose these two think tattoo's are only for the younger gens.Oh and the chain on my wallet is there for a reason(to stop me losing it whilst riding).
I have two black leather jackets and I look great in them (based on honest feedback). I love them and feel real good in them - by the way, I'm 71. I had a lovely suede jacket when I was in my twenties ...
2 minute tuesdays = 2 stupid. why not take your time with the video? why limit the video to 2 minutes when it is so obvious that it's no long enough?? it's just kinda dumb to have to rush for no reason whatsoever. otherwise, i like the content.
Later for these idiot "stylists" or whatever they are. What assholes with their "rules". A sophisticated man will know what works for him and what doesn't. It depends on the man and how he may own his look, if you know what I mean.♐
One of my rare comments back. You make a statement you are against leather jackets and have built a fictional age barrier? Does a man looks automatically change past 50? Leather jackets have been a mens fashion staple for an extremely long period; over 100 plus years. They became a staple based on there ability to shield the wearer from cold and wind. Today they also are a fashion piece to many as well. May I humbly suggest you study Jeff Goldblum styling a leather jacket at well into his 60"s, as an example! Is he not classy, poised and confident? Further, perhaps rather than a blanket banning of a piece of menswear at a certain age, and issuing challenges you may want to suggest styles, colors, etc that may look good for that particular age group. By the way, leather jackets and mens pants still remain a staple for those 50 and older driving a motor cycle. In this instance they also serve to protect they wearer. My point in all this is: Style and function can co-exist; Men as well as womans clothing styles go from very formal to very casual. You should dress appropriate to what you are doing. I would like to see a future video on how you would style leather pieces and for what occasions rather than banning a staple pasted a certain age!
I wear New Balance shoes, always clean. They are reasonably priced and very comfortable. I will never wear PC Leftist Nike, that's for damn sure. WTF do you guys know anyway, her with that oversized pullover hiding her IBT's, and him with that Wal Mart button up.
I think American styles and cuts makes older men look fat and out of shape. If it were more tailored and trimmer fit then fine. But it’s hard to find older men clothes off the rack that is not wide and shapeless.
Have to say, I agree with some of what you say...but my sense of smell at 63 is still great. So much that when the young men, and women walk by all perfumed up I know they are coming and been in the area. I did 30 years in the military, retired and with my degree went to work in my business and management. I did the suit and tie life. Unfortunately my wife passed several years ago. So at 60, against what many said I was to young to do, I completely retired. I am actively keeping my grandbabies happy, I fish, I camp, I golf and I do crossfit...not bad for a old man. But I don't want to look younger or older. I send my clothes to the cleaners. I wear the casual sneakers at times, but I love my new Nike Viale's in a off white...I know a lot of people who wear the sneakers you don't like. But they keep them clean and only with denim blue jeans. I agree on the t-shirt issue, but I have a couple that have a small logo on the pocket that I wear. None of the goofy stuff. I hate polo shirts and refuse to wear them. I feel the same about jewelry. Clean and conservative is a good way to describe things. I laugh at the young men in skinny jeans and bedroom hair and earrings. At our age we have learned to be who we are. We have proven ourselves in society. We dress for the occasion. We don't want to look younger or like we are our grandparents lol. So I have to agree with some of the comments listed, if it looks good i.e. fits properly and is clean and comfortable...no holes or as you call it distressed... I give my wire out clothes to my kids save the on buying stuff with holes in it lol.. now thanks for the advice but I have to get ready..while you guys are saving the style world, I am going fishing !
Nah. I wear sandals all the time. I’m 64 black leather jacket for my Harley, and 22,000 emails in the past year from females wanting to start something. Most in 20-30ies. Got some jeans with a couple holes from working not style.
I agree except leather jackets a classic leather Jacket is always awesome. Gentleman should always wear cologne, not over do it, but most definitely a must. " A fragrance should announce your arrival and delay your departure" Coco Chanel
The internet is a sea of valuable information of all accumulated human knowledge where we can delve into any subject known to man and learn every single detail about it without leaving our bedrooms. If used properly, we can all become nuclear physicists and create a Utopia of quantum power where the monetary system becomes void because we do have all the knowledge and technology as humans to satisfy all our human needs while preserving the planet’s natural resources and without any wars. It’s all there at our fingertips. But you’re idiots. We are all idiots.
As hip-hop remains a staple in our society, we continue to appreciate the artists behind this broad genre of music. While Biggie and Tupac represent the best of hip-hop excellence from both coasts, we also remember these two as humans beings, just like the rest of us. With that comes personality, charm, and, of course, a good sense-of-humor.
Today, with the ever-changing nuances of technology and the Internet, rappers can express themselves and their senses of humor in ways far beyond that their music. Whether it’s a GIF, a tweet, a meme, a Snapchat — there’s never a bad time to insert comedy into any given situation. When it comes to music videos, Lil Dicky sets the bar high with “$ave Dat Money,” which clocks in at over 84 million views and counting. Aside from his undeniable talent behind the mic, LD effortlessly reveals a career in comedy is at his fingertips.
