Many of you 'Old Folks' (over 50) are quite confused today about how you should present yourselves. Feeling 'young', you try to conform to current fashions and present a youthful image.
Contrary to what you may have seen on the streets, the following combination's DO NOT go together and should be avoided:
1. A nose ring and bifocals
2. Spiked hair and bald spots
3. A pierced tongue and dentures
4. Miniskirts and support hose
5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads
6. Speedo's and cellulite
7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
9. Midriff shirts and a muffin-top
10. Bikinis and liver spots
11. Mini skirts and varicose veins
And, Most importantly
At some point you have to give up the 'DAISY DUKE' shorts
Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

While that pic is appalling, the topic is actually a good one.
There's a concept floating around (pushed by Boomers) that anybody can wear anything at any age as long as it fits well. This is just flat out false. No matter how much you work out, your skin is going to thin out and your fat is going to rearrange itself over time. You can still look terrific in clothing that plays up your good points but you can't look terrific in no clothing. You will inevitably be compared to a 25 year old and you will fail that comparison.
People need to get a grip. Wrinkled, ripply cleavage is not attractive. A thick waist does not enhance your Speedo look. Black only makes you look thinner if you are no more than 10 pounds overweight. Wearing tighter clothing does not make you 2 sizes smaller. Men over 40 should quit dressing like little boys and buy real hats.

Old men need to stick with plaid shorts and shirts with stripes that have been working so well for them all these years. Old women, keep the blue hair and the moo moos.“Progress is Providence without God. That is, it is a theory that everything has always
perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

Some people are pretty amazing though. I live in a retirement town (South Pasadena Florida) where the median age is 75 years old. Last night at the grocery store, the man in front of me had a tight workout body which I would have guessed was a very well preserved 35 years old. I'm going to estimate that he was 53. Yes, he had that little wrinkle on the bicep that young men don't have, but that was about the only tell I could see other than his face. To get a mental picture, imagine that Jan Michael Vincent had gone the health food and clean living route combined with incredible genes and working out.
We have a couple of men around here whose bodies are 20 or 30 years younger than their face.
