HOW TO HAVE A MIDDLE CRISIS
With style - the GQ way.
You’ve seen him. Fifty-plus with fresh hair plugs gunning his leased Porsche 911 at the lights while the 20-year-old Tinder date riding shotgun crops him out of selfes. And you think, ‘That’ll never happen to me.’
Except, it will. For a couple of days, then a month, then the entire second half of the year, you’ll feel varying degrees of rubbish. Tired. Irritable. You’ll shout at someone in the offce and make them cry. Next, the standard Saturday piccolo and papers routine will fail to rouse a single hint of pleasure, and that’s when it hits. A midlife crisis – legit. The cars section will blur through a flm of unlikely tears as the realisation flters through that there’s nothing now separating you from the next idiot with a face full of botox and $20,000 Ducati between his legs threatening to tip over at the lights. Bugger. Now what? Here’s what. Embrace it, sir. Own it. According to GQ’S female affairs correspondent, nothing is sexier than a gent who’s greying at the temples and questioning every decision he’s ever made. Treat it as an existential half-time. A moment to refect, refocus and get back out there refreshed and ready to crush the second half. And to ensure the middy (yep) is all manner of stylish, feast all eyes on these.
