    Probably redundant at this point, but I'll chip in as well and say this looks good to me. As a low-30s person, if I saw somebody in their 60s wearing this I wouldn't think it was off at all. Heck, I hope I'll be able to look like that when I'm 59.

    (I don't mind the pooling, either - I've always felt pooling pants matters less when it's jeans.)

      Totally get it - i lean towards more traditional fits too, I think it's mostly because I feel like i'm muffin-topping when i wear slimmer clothes but dude . . . nice pants.

        I really dig the outfit, especially the shoes.

        Thanks. That was my photo and clothes for the typical dappered outfit thread--you can find it someplace if you look around. A bunch of us participated. Maybe you did?

          As a mid 40s person, I hope I can maintain myself to look that fit and stay current with my style over the next five years.
          Don’t call what your wearing an outfit. Don’t ever say your car is broke.

            We're all on this site because we care more than the average person about our clothes and how we look in them. But also realize that putting even a scintilla of effort into your look puts you in the top 1%, sartorially-speaking. Case in point: I work at a Fortune 125 company where I KNOW a lot of the men here make good money (and the women, but this is a site about men's clothes), and I can't tell you the number of bicycle-toe shoes I see on a daily basis. Would it kill you to buy a cap toe every now and again?

            What's the point, Tex? It's this: you look great. But most importantly, your wife thinks you look great. And that's the audience you should care about the most. And ditto to what an earlier poster said: it takes some getting used to a new silhouette. After a while, you'll wonder why you ever wore those "baggier" trousers before. I hope I look at sharp as you when I hit 60. As for having a wife 15 years younger, I'll have to settle for four years younger!

              It may be optics, try a slimmer fitting jacket in a store with some slimmer pants, it might look more symmetrical, that's about the only thing I can think of for why you may think the pants were too slim, I've noticed that happening to myself when I mix suit jackets with odd trousers I have in various fits. (yeah yeah I know that's a bad idea but I own enough suits)

                I am in EXACTLY the same situation. Medical problem, weight loss, and I'm 62. I'm enjoying wearing slimmer clothing as I went from a 44 jacket to a 38, and 38 waist to 32. I find that I prefer the Regent fit from BB in suits, and the Clark in casual pants. They are a close enough fit that they don't look baggy. Anything slimmer just isn't comfortable, even if I can pull it off. I'm also more particular about trousers. If they don't drape cleanly from top to bottom, I won't wear them. To get a good drape requires some extra material, and I think the Regent fit nails it for me.

                  Sadly I did not but I'll go back over those posts for sure. In a casual rut at the moment.

                    Yes, indeed. Thank you for the reminder.

                      Yes--Regent Fit--my wife LOVES that cut on me (I have one BB suit and it's a Regent Fit) and I think it's kind of snug. But I get compliments every time I wear it.

                        2. They're more restrictive

                          A bit of stretch is usually built into the fabrics used for slimmer jeans. Restriction is usually not an issue.

                          I don't like my shoes to look tiny in comparison to my wide billowy dad jeans.

                            [MENTION=11274]3piece[/MENTION] : What he said.

                            Also, my big feet are going to look big no matter what, thank you.

                            And today when I had lunch with my grown daughter, she told me the jeans aren't too tight and when she first saw me, she thought I had lost more weight.

                            So, I'm good.

                              My thinking is that pants clinging to your butt isn't a good look for a guy of any age range, but if you're in a good shape, dressing so that they gently skim your body looks good for a man in any age.

                                Looks good. Hem the pants about an inch or less and you'll be fine.
