Are you ever too old to wear jeans?


A pair of comfy jeans is a staple in many wardrobes. But according to a survey by British company CollectPlus, people over the age of 53 shouldn’t wear jeans. The reason? Jean shopping is too stressful by that age. Say what?!

While you can hang on to your old pair of jeans, the study suggests that it’s not worth it to shop for a new pair by age 53. One in 10 people over 50 try on six pairs of jeans and spend five days looking to find a pair that fits (women spend twice as long as men looking for a perfect pair).

The study also says the process of jean shopping by this age is so traumatic that six per cent burst into tears while doing it. Uh, really?

On the bright side, with deconstructed jeans making a comeback … perhaps ditching the denim isn’t such a bad idea at any age.
