Dude those are literally the definitions of dad jeans. Just throw on your penny loafers and maybe a nice mock turtleneck and you are ready for a night on the town! Just because 1744 dads like the jeans does not mean much.
I have two pair of L.L. Bean's. They are very durable. At 50+, I don't give a flying f if they look like dad jeans or not.

These are the brands I go with:
7 for all mankind
Rock and Republic
I'm 30, so I'm in the transition stage between the college jeans and the grown up jeans. All of the above have jeans that would be acceptable for middle aged men to wear. I wear my 7 jeans quite often with a slim fitted button up shirt, and it works quite well.
Do you wear sweatpants regularly out as well?
Nothing wrong with wanting to dress/look nice.
So what are you doing in a jeans thread?
I buy Levi's 501s when they are on sale, they have 40% off sales on their website all the time. I still wear American Eagle jeans also though.
Dude did you choke on some denim when you were younger?
Are you telling me that you can't dress well wearing a pair of jeans?
That appears to be the implication...
Jeans are for simpletons, where are my chinos?
You sound like a pretentious dbag. Even the f'ing president will throw a pair of jeans on now and then.
Damn straight. Me too. And I wear the bastards with a braided belt.
I don't think he's pretentious...I just think he doesn't know the right kind of jeans to buy.
Multiple hookups and girlfriends by the age of 27?!?! You are my hero!
I could use some advice on how to pick up one girl every 3-4 years!
Until this thread, who knew there were so many jeans snobs out there.
Can hardly wait for the upcoming intense debate over driving gloves.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
After losing 25lbs this year I cannot wear anything except for slim fit, way too much bagginess in the legs.
You should probably take a break. You're taking this way too seriously.
It's why we're here, right?
This. Fit great, wear well, and inexpensive.
On sale for $29.99 now
I've had multiple girlfriends and no hook ups.
This thread makes me laugh because I just had this conversation with my 25 year old female co-worker who thinks she is editor of fashion digest. I just hit 40 so these are the rules she says I must now follow:
No untucked button up shirts.
No baggy clothes unless overweight
No jeans with a flashy pocket design
Tennis shoes with jeans only for running errands or other tasks such as yard work
No backward baseball hats
Needless to say I violate the above but I do laugh when I see a 50 year old dude in True Religion. I like Seven jeans but have several pair of Lucky.
Interesting. I'm 34, so maybe the rules are different for me, but I would ask her the following:
What about an untucked button up shirt if the shirt was made to be worn that way (or at least not specifically made to be worn tucked in, like a dress shirt)?
"Tennis shoes" is kind of a nebulous term nowadays, does she just mean the white "walking shoes" that were mentioned in the article? I think you can still get some stylish looking "sneakers" that are a nice alternative to always having to wear something more dressy. I know I'll be wearing colored shoes in the New Balance/Puma/Adidas/Saucony family for a long time. I always wear loafers or boots to work (and a lot outside of work too), but I spend a lot of time in sneakers. Certainly any time I'm wearing shorts, for example.
I'll hang up and listen.
