This is perfect in every way. Color sense–make the visual leap from hat to shoes and back again–superb.

I agree about founding joviality in daring men when wearing “young” pieces.

Scott, I love your blog but I am going to have to disagree with you here. This man looks absurd. This “outfit” is the opposite of classic. I prefer beautiful clothes that whisper rather than scream.

I actually think this is very cool and it certainly does not look absurd.He’s actually got the look, down to not wearing any socks with the sneakers!And what sneakers too, orange Puma Formula 1s, very nice Gramps.

This is a great look for him. I think it would really go well with some maroon socks.

60 years is “old”? Not when your heart is young.
positively the same dame

if i’m not mistaken that’s my upstairs neighbor (and landlord). for what it’s worth, he’s a psychiatrist. loves funky hats. what’s the freudian interpretation of funky hat love?

What an interesting subject! As a 52 year old male who loves fashion, I often wonder when I see a cool new look, “Is it too young for me?” It is fun to read the various comments and I hope you will show new styles and sportwear on older guys on an ongoing basis.
My own opinion, is that the jacket, hat and shoes each make a very bold color statement on their own. The three combined are too much. Topsiders or blue or white sneakers and a blue cap would have looked just right with the colorful madras jacket.

Oh my gosh! My husband wears something similiar: madras cargo shorts (I have no idea where he found those!), orange Pumas, a rock t-shirt or blue Lacoste and a Boston RedSox cap. Is there a secret men’s fashion club founded by David Arquette that I don’t know about?

This guy is having fun, but the jacket is bothering me. It doesn’t look as ‘easy’ as everything else in this “outfit”. It looks heavy and dirty…it could just be the light???

He looks amazing. Orange Puma Mostros and no socks!!! Love it. I bet he made a lot of people smile that day. Imagine what he wore in his “youth”.

I must take issue here. Its a cap, not a hat, per se. Yes, I am incorrigibly pedantic, but seeing as this is a fashion/style blog, the distinction must be drawn.

Looks like he’s checking his blackberry after getting a iced frappucino at Starbucks.

the good thing about him is that he wears what he wants to …
isnt it great when you have the freedom to be spontaneous?
(well, at least i think he is)
August 15, 2006 at 7:21 pm
i think he’s probably counting my rent money.

Lauren Hutton is going to be 62 in November. Need I say more?

this is great! i think older men can make lots of outfits look just fine…somehow as a man ages he just seems to look more “classic”…and i love the pumas!!! especially that he wore them without socks.
August 16, 2006 at 7:31 pm
I’m not sure about the shoes. I’d go with leather instead.

AT HIS AGE, IF YOU HAVE YOUR HEALTH YOUR BATING A THOUSAND, EVEN THOUGH I DON’T SIXTY IS WHAT IT USE TO BE, IT ISN’T THE NEW FORTY , SIXTY IS SIXTY AND FORTY IS FORTY, HAVING SAID THAT- I THINK FROM WHAT HE CHOSE TO WEAR HE SEEM TO BE AN ARTISTIC PERSON AND HAVING FUN WITH THE PATTERNS AND HAPPY PEARING OF COLOR.
