Fashion Police strike again

Whereas there probably are some outfits that grow as old as we do, jeans tend to be eternal.

Nevertheless, “fashion police” remain on an ever-vigilant beat. Their more recent “wisdom” includes a study done by (of all things) a delivery company.  After noting “the stress we experience while jeans shopping,” Collect Plus concluded that jeans are to be shunned past age 53.

Even though 55-year-old George Clooney is third on the list of the top-ten male celebrity jeans wearers, the average senior should shred them into patchwork quilts.  This ageist notion drew comments such as these from the Internet community:

At 56 I've just managed to get back into my size 10 jeans again.  I’m not giving them up for anybody.

Let’s face it, [some of] the older generation look better in jeans than some of the younger generation.

I wear jeans all the time and am 73.  I don't need to be told what I can and can’t wear by anyone…
