Old men should have beards, as soon as you hit 40, along with pipe smoking and walking with a cane, it’s your god given obligation. Which was why I was so impressed to see Sting‘s facial hair from his gig this weekend in New York.
However after Sting had very quickly and in one fell swoop shot up in my estimation, he rocketed right back down with a almighty bump. I am, of course, talking about that skin tight long sleeve top that the ex Police-man was sporting. No matter how age defyingly ripped you are, a 56 year old man should never wear skin tight anything. What’s wrong with a bit of tweed?
What do you think? Name your best dressed old men, bearded or not.[Image: Rex Features]
