Youtube video - why older men shouldn't wear leather jackets!

lol you guys..........

I have friends from the Army and Navy as well, the usual rivalries aside, the one thing they could agree on was their opinion of the RAAF, one of the most memorable quote was "they try to out-British the British", my apologies to our British friend here :)
Haha well I think your friends have summed it up in a nutshell......
Though I must admit I bagged a pair of RAAF issued black leather Terra's.....they feel like top quality leather and don't have the drainage holes......pity that such great boots were only used to go from barracks to the mess/officers club for the Santa Squadron

That's what I'm talkin' about! If you wanna rock good leather, you gotta OWN IT!

Those kids in the video simply don't get it.

i'm 57, i just started a new position as GM of a company and i f...in' wear leather or whatever i want where- and whenever i want without listening to some stupid youngsters (ok - sometimes i listen to the "missus" but noone else and she ain't a youngster anyway ...)

Hi Thomas, glad to see you again my friend, glad that your new project is going according to your plan and that you are OK and have new good job, which cannot be said about many of us at this crazy times.
Great jacket by the way.

As for this thread, in my life I have always worn only what I like - whether it be my flight uniform, jeans, suits or leather jackets. The only exception was the military uniform in the war, where I took part in my youth and no one was interested in my opinion and desire.

Life is short to look back on various idiots with their advice.

Above all, it is important to keep one thing in mind:
Many youtubers (of course not all) have the sole aim of getting as many views as possible.

The relevance of their words is secondary.

The goal is to provoke reactions. They then have more views
... and it works well! ;)

In general, young people have always found old people out of date ... And old people have always found young people to be idiots. Nothing new.
At 37 I think I have the best of both worlds ! ... or the worst ! :D

Talking about the old people vs young people, there is currently a war between generations right now because of COVID. But like some of you have mentioned already, these young people will have their turn, eventually, when they grow old. What goes around comes around, that's the fact.

The problem is that we won’t be here to see it happen. :D

She will grow old and he will grow old. Hope they don't look like sh.t by that time. This week I will turn 56 and I do not give a r.ts ass about their judgmental "advice". I went through all the pictures(460 pages) in what jacket are you wearing today and what I saw were distinguished proud men of age, looking sharp and smart!
