10 things no Irish guy over the age of 25 should wear

Listen up, lads.

1. O’Neills trousers

When is it appropriate to wear O’Neills? When you’re going to PE or knocking around college with a belter of a hangover.

They have no place on a grown man.

2. Ironic/nostaglic t-shirts

If you’re over 25, there is absolutely no reason to be wearing a t-shirt plastered with, like, Kermit the Frog or slogans like “Sex, Drugs and Sausage Rolls”.

Banish them to the past, please.

3. Jeans with a fabric belt

Just invest in a real belt.

For everyone’s sake.

5. Shoes with no socks

Fine when you’re in college and trying to affect a chill, cultured vibe, but if you’re over the age of 25, it’s time to give in and wear a pair of bloody socks.

You heard us.

6. Bantersaurus accessories like this…

Archbishop of Banterbury, are you? Take off the damn glasses.

7. Bucket hats

Are you a toddler trying to protect your head on the beach? No? Then take off the bucket hat.

8. A vest with low cut sides

You’re not on holidays in Thailand, lad.

We live in Ireland. Cover up your ribs.


9. T-shirts designed to show off how “intelligent” you are

If you’re really intelligent and witty, you don’t need your t-shirt to do the talking for you. Keep that in mind next time you feel tempted to buy a “funny” t-shirt about chemistry or whatever.

10. Bootcut jeans

In fairness, nobody under the age of 25 should be wearing these either.
