RE: Ripped jeans. I don’t get it.

September 23 2019

I would now consider myself on my way to old fogey-ism.. why? Because the on-the-street fashion trends I see now are none that I would partake in. I would just look odd.. However, I would never pass judgement on what the young ones choose to wear or their reasons for wearing them. Its their prerogative, as it was ours when in the 70’s and 80’s my parents (and their generation) judged me for wearing stone-wash supertapered jeans or growing a mullet. I agree with Keanu, people (other oldish fogeys) should worry about their own problems rather than pass judgement on young people’s fashion. How do you think it makes me feel to see my generation wearing walking socks and sandles.. together.. at the same time! It seems we have out-grown our ability to understand what is cool anymore and I’m happy with that.

Just let the young ones be.
