    I cannot criticise anyone for genetically determined traits, and although to me it looks bizarre, have to admire those who refuse to be intimidated by others' opinions.

    We are all going to suffer not only loss of pristine youth and handsomeness, to some extent, but also tend to look ridiculous for numerous reasons.

    One of the contrasts which I find laughable, is old men of my age, obviously physically compromised, but with immaculate new gym kit on, especially expensive trainers.

    i was always told trainers were bad for your feet, so rarely wore them. i did have a couple of pairs of american baseball shoes, that were similar i guess but had flat soles. they were quite rare at time and ok, but i preferred shoes like dm's or a nice pair of brown/black semi formals. Only track suit i had was when I played badminton

    Yes, some folk have difficulty with 'self image' and just don't understand how others see them.

    Your baseball shoes were probably Converse 'Chuck Taylor' All Stars. I had a couple of pairs in the late seventies. Not especially cheap, about £30 a pair, which was probably £100+ in today's money. Still quite popular today, but a bit more of a budget brand, and can be had for about £40.

    Agree about trainers, don't own any, but have had 'skate' shoes which also have flat soles (usually Vans) for the last 30 years. Always have a couple of pairs on the go

    You have four feet?

    Personally, I wear whatever I want and couldn't give a toss what anyone else thinks about it. (Note to self: must book in my second haircut of the year).

    That's fine, but surely you'd have to concede that the hairstyles illustrated all look ridiculous? If you've got a large bald patch in the middle of your head, then the last thing you want to do is accentuate it, by allowing the hair around about it to grow long?

    That would be akin to a big bald patch being in the centre of your lawn, and just ignoring it, allowing the grass to grow long all around it, which would be just as unsightly.

    *You* might not care how you look, but your wife or partner might think that you look like a right tit, but are too kind to say, so consider them!
