"And while these super-costumey retro styles look fun when you’re in your 20s and 30s, by the time you hit your 50s..."

"... you’re going to start looking a bit like an aging Ricky Ricardo... We’re all for developing and sticking to a personal style, but you’ve simply got to make sure it evolves with you as you get older. If he’s still dressing like this when he hits 60 he’s going to go from looking silly to looking pathetic."

I some times feel like a party of one, but I have had an aversion to Depp since he gave up his US residence (citizenship?). Somehow I feel like he is a tamed down Jane Fonda. He doesn't like the US yet many here fall all over themselves for him. What little I have seen of his movies are a joke - Pirates of the Caribbean versions one through fifty and the Lone Ranger, get serious.

Johnny Depp: from acting in live-action cartoons to dressing like a cartoon in real life. Art.

Adoring fans line the fence just to get a glimpse of the aging Johnny Depp?

Don't they have jobs?...families? Are their lives so empty that they stand and wait for Mr. Depp?

Have these women no self-respect?

He tries WAAAY too hard. Talk about over accessorized. He's wearing less baubles and bangles than normal. It must take him an hour to put himself together before leaving the house.

He wears an old bowling jacket and everybody is on his shit?

Mrs. Tank does not care what he wears.

Pretty good actor, I think.

Good actors, like other accomplished human beings, can dress however they want.

I no longer wear bell bottomed trousers , wide collared shirts with a floral pattern, or earth shoes. So I'm willing to change, but once you hit on the right outfit, you should stick to it. Jeans, a sweatshirt, and New Balance running shoes are the perfect balance of chic and informality. I've been wearing them for the last forty years and see no reason for further change. We have such a brief stay on planet earth. Do we really want to waste a lot of time on choosing outfits?

The white tee-shirt, bermudas and crocs style is forever.

Women though like to show off what a good deal they made in a partner to their friends, and may suggest things for you to wear instead so that the friends are impresed.

It's a girl thing.

...said the writer to the A-list actor who's pulling down more money, making more art, and impacting more lives than the writer ever will.

"Don't they have jobs?"

Given the years-in-progress-and-still-going disappearance of jobs in modern America...possibly not!

David said...

The problem with that outfit is how expensive it looks (and is.) It's so elegant in fabric and tailoring that it creates a huge distance between the wearer and the onlooker. Maybe this is what Depp wants. But usually he dresses in a way that the average hipster wannabe thinks "I could look like that." He could, if he were Johnny Depp.

I don't know -- that getup in the photos looks like it would fit a 60 year old man perfectly. If he buttoned up a few more buttons, at least.

I foresaw this back when. There are some people, like Depp, who look so young for so long...until they don't, at which point the become creepy FAST. He wasn't ever my thing, but he did truly make it through two full generations. Now he can look like a cross between Michael Jackson and an old man bundled up against the cold.

The aging scarily well crown now passes to Jared Leto.
