A generation of ageist bores has declared that once you’ve got your bus pass (and several decades before that) you really need to rein in your style.
A poll of 2,000 Brits by retiresavvy.co.uk found that the majority of young people believe there is an upper age limit on tattoos, trainers and basically anything that counts as remotely fun.
But these pensioners aren’t willing to be bossed about by the younger generation, instead they’re looking cooler than most people do in their twenties.
“Women need to ditch the mini-skirt once they turn 39...”
”People can’t have tattoos after the age of 39...”
”Skinny jeans, leggings and loud clothes should be forgotten...”
“Stop wearing trainers at the age of 49...”
“You shouldn’t stay out past midnight after 52...”
We think they know what they’re doing.
