Senior Dress Code

15 years ago

I got this from an 70+ year old male cycling friend. It is way to good, not to share here. But please, finish whatever you are eating or drinking first, to protect the innocent monitor and keyboard. :)


Many of you/us over 60, WAY over 60, or on the way to 60 are quite confused about how we should present ourselves. We're unsure about the kind of image we are projecting and whether or not we are correct as we try to conform to current fashion.

In spite of what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations 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. Speedos 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 midriff bulge

  1. Pierced nipples that hang below the waist

  2. Bikinis and liver spots.

  3. Short shorts and varicose veins.

  4. Inline skates and a walker.

  5. And the ultimate in 'Bad Taste' are Thongs and Depends.

Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.
