Default Is There an Age Limit on Wearing Jeans?

Jeans are a versatile staple in many wardrobes — and any woman who’s ever shopped for them knows finding the perfect pair is no easy task. So that’s why, according to a new study, many tend to hold on tight to their favorite pair and wear them again and again until they’re worn out.

Unfortunately, that same research, conducted by CollectPlus, proposes that those age 53 and older should ditch those pants — and stop wearing jeans altogether.

Yet even the company behind the results, a British parcel delivery and return service, doesn’t necessarily agree with its findings. Catherine Woolfe, marketing director at CollectPlus, told the Daily Mail, “It’s surprising to see our research reveals that many people think jeans are the reserve of the younger generation, suggesting that we should all put denim back on the shelf at the age of 53.”

It's weird to me that people who don't care what gender people want to call themselves... and are upset at people who think biological facts trump personal declarations... would decide that being fashion police over Jeans made sense.

to even QUESTION a persons gender declaration is considered offensive but shaming others choice to wear jeans and declaring some arbitrary standard for Jean usage is OK?
I have wonder how does that work?

Didn't really mean to bust up the fun.. if this was in the Lounge or humor section I'd probably would have let it go by.

But hey sorry, It really did just strike me as odd.
People don't think it's very funny when conservatives or Christians talk about "limits on" people's choices even just in a social context.

But hey,
please carry on making fun of old and fat people wearing Jeans.

I don't wear jeans but many women and men here do
to garden or while working
I see nothing wrong with any fashion except nakedness, or possibly not wearing appropriate attire to a dinner party etc

I see nothing wrong with wearing jeans at any age or body type. They are great for yard work, and other job or chore that might cause scraps or cuts to your body.

You need to get over yourself and grow up.

My neighbors occasionally gets into a huff when I work in my garden while wearing jeans. I can't imagine why.
