Cat Wink yes I love my bell bottom jeans. I used to wear Shrink to Fit 501 Levi's button fly but as I got older I switched to stretch denims and no buttons, too hard to use my fingers now. Anyone else have that problem? Oh well! There's nothing wrong with wearing jeans, as long as they fit and no muffin-topping bulge showing. Fit is the key to wearing jeans, no matter your age! So girls and guys, Wear Those Jeans!!!! Whatever makes you happy and looking good★

I'm 71 and I just bought three pair from JCPenney. They're stretch, and the most comfortable I've ever had.

Why not?  I'm not there yet have been wearing jeans since my late teens (they weren't allowd in high school!) and figure I'll always wear them.  Sure, there are times when they are not appropriate but they're my best choice in between sweats & dress!

Why not?  I think that everyone should wear whatever feels comfortable.  I personally wouldn't try to dress like a teenager, but I feel like I have been on this Earth long enough to be able to decide what I want to wear.   By the time you are 80 I think you should be able to wear whatever you please as long as everything that should be covered is covered.

I'm 78 and have been wearing jeans since I was a teenager, although in those days, back in Boston, we called them "dungarees".  Whatever they're called, I like them.  I wouldn't wear them to a wedding, or even to work in an officebut around town to grocery shop, go to the library, and other places, I feel that clean, well maintained jeans are appropriate.  I think my goats and chickens would laugh if I went down to the barnyard to feed them and clean their houses wearing a dress and high heels!

I tried doing that many times. But, I just kept running into other people despite my efforts.

I hope I'm never too old for blue jeans, or sneakers, or baseball hats or anything else that I want to wear.  Right now I'm loving Moto jackets -- I get lots of looks and probably lots of shaking heads when I wear my black leather with embroidery.
