“I’m 51 years old and I think a lot of guys my age define success by being able to wear jeans to work or not having to wear a suit. I remember at age 34 or 35 not having to wear a suit to work for the first time and it threw me for a loop. I think the guys my age who are maybe looking to wear a pair of jeans or chinos - they may not be the best dressed lot. But their sons, in their mid-twenties, they all want to dress like their grandfathers.”
—Nick Wooster in GQ. Not the first time I’ve seen this observation, but one worth reiterating.
