I'm 46 and have always loved wearing white pants/jeans/shorts. My rule of thumb is always have several pair from linen to cotton, in case a pair get ruined. White is so fly with a nice pair of white drivers or sneakers and just about any solid shirt or one with white accents/print/trim.
Sorry - the white pants with ripped knees sends a message: "I have a teen ager at home and I wear his clothes." White pants that fit properly look great, but that "greatness" becomes tacky with ripped knees. Put patches on them and then only wear them when cleaning out the garage.
Thanks for answering. I know the subject of ties could take a while, but it would be very helfull if you could also a address the ties thickness, appropriate knots, and also recommendations for shirts, sport jackets and suits. Looking foward for more posts. Thank you, John.
I have a pair of white pants I bought 10 years ago for a special occasion. It was actually a bit casual attire, but the occasion was significant. I only can describe the pants as “boating” or “yachting” pants? A little loose fitting and a roll up with button design at the cuffs. Definitely not cargo pants! I only wore them one other time, but this inspires me to try it again. This will give me an excuse to shop for a shirt!
Wow - that grey matching shirt belt shoe look is awesome.... you’ve inspired me to attempt the same theme with blue ... thanks for the video - a whole breakdown of white pants and you didn’t reference Sonny Crockett once lol
Appreciate the comment Steve, but I disagree.. to a point. While I agree with you in the sense that 'most' older guys would benefit from remaining more conservative, I would also argue that since I'm in the style space, I tend to be slightly more 'fashion forward' than most. I also understand my audience and try to hit on topics that reach guys who like conservative apparel as well as guys who like to dip their toe slightly into trends. Thanks again for watching and for your comment.
I’m 58’ and own a pair of white pants. Last summer I had company in town and friends of friends joined. Two of the women stated how well I looked in my white pants. They said it takes a certain guy to pull off white pants. I accepted the compliment with some modesty. I never thought anything about it till then. In my opinion I think having a great tan, some leg muscles and a nice look in the crotch is what makes a man look good in white pants. I don’t mean that in a ignorant or perverse way. It just all goes together fine.
I am 48 and absolutely love my white jeans/pants. I usually wear them with my blue SR jacket or TF electric blue velvet jacket. It’s funny how you said that they are a bit out there or bold what have you... I just see them now as being a perfectly normal part of my wardrobe.
One thing though... be careful of dirty seat belts.
Great looks, except for the ripped jeans one. It just makes you look like the creepy guy walking past the High School, if you know what I mean. The one with the jacket was spot on incredible. Great job.
Thanks man. Appreciate the feedback and clarification. We all have our own opinions, and style is very subjective and personal. I've mentioned this before, but I teeter on the line between older and youthful with my style and this is a way of 'cautiously' dipping my toe into some current trends and trying new things. My body hasn't failed me yet which allows me to pull off some things other guys might not try. Not everything I do is a hit, but I do understand classic menswear and I'm just not afraid to try new stuff from time to time. Thanks again for your comment!
40 Over Fashion I’m not being mean spirited when I say this, it’s like the old Chris Rock joke about the guy who isn’t really old but he’s a little too old to be in the club. I find that the ripped pants look like the guy is trying just a tad too much to look like one of the kids. Everything else is spot on.
John, just turned 68 and lost 30 pounds (feeling great). Now none of my clothes fit. Went from 38 to 33 waist. Donated all my XL shirts. Even some Large are too big depending on style. It gets hot and humid here in Chicago so I think I might be able to pull off the white chinos. Great channel.
Love the show....never miss a single one. May I ask who manufactures the thin sole shoes that look grey but you mention are actually brown? Again great content and being a Southern California native all these looks hit really close to home!
Great video, white pants look great in the summer. Pleased you talked about what underwear to wear underneath, always make me laugh if I see a guy with black undies under white shorts or pants, not a good look 🤣
Really nice options! The third one, with the linen blazer (I am guessing it's linen) looks so chic. The rip jeans on the second look: not for me. I did that in the late 80's when I was a teenager. I am almost 42 now so no ripped jeans for me anymore :)
Nice look with white…I also have a couple of pairs of white chinos not jeans and wear them to work and out on the town with friends. Your jacket is a very good pair up with the pants, to bad I don’t have the same one. Keep it up my friend.
John, you look great in white pants. You look so well put together, but to me the tears in the knees seem to distract from the look. Thanks so much, for your videos. I really appreciate your effort and sense of style! - John
You are right on, my friend, white pants can be a great look for spring or hot weather, if you are up to the attention it will garner. I have to say I prefer the look with bolder patterned or colored shirts, rather than lighter shirts that give me a more uniform white "Good Humor" ice-cream-salesman look. White jeans with a brilliant Robert Graham shirt make a striking combo.
This over 50 brother digs your style my man. Nice work I ordered 12 pair of white jeans from Macy’s to try on because of my size. I kept one pair, sent back the rest. So for my more muscular guys, Calvin Klein and Sean John have a little more room with a taper.
Going to try BRepulic next stay tuned
Does the old rule of only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day still apply these days or has that gone by the wayside? I know I'll wear my white jeans before and after that time frame. Up to 80K subs. Thumbs up.
Thanks for the enlightening video. Always loved the Black & White look! What do you think of the pairing of an Indigo Denim L/S Shirt with a White Chino and what shoes (color & type) to complete the look? Cheers mate ☺
This video came at a perfect time for me. I have a pair of white denim that I've had for 2 years and only worn once. I definitely need to get them hemmed since now understand why I wasn't too happy with the look.
The last outfit with the sports jacket was real nice. Might have to use that color combination when I get them back from the tailor and are fitting better.
I visited a few of the links and will say that the stores should be hiring you for the style modeling or actually modeling the clothes themselves. Your outfits/combos look better than the ones they include with their products. I also wanted to say that I like the quality of your intro. Whomever you hired to put it together did a great job on image choices, the music, and flow.
