THE DAD LOOK, SO NOT COOL

-

IT’S George Cl Clooney ey – like you’ve never seen him before.

Struggling to pull off baggy high-waisted jeans and a dated leather jacket, the once super sexy star looks a shadow of his former self.

His fashion faux pas have caught the attention of Brisbane style guru Di Cant, who says it’s “not good enough”.

“I love George and hate myself for saying this, but he looks daggy and baggy,” she said.

“He should have worn indigo denim and tucked the T-shirt in. This is just sloppy.”

And Clooney is not alone in his wardrobe woes.

Confidenti­al has noticed a spike in the number of highprofil­e men wearing “daggy dad” attire – including Queensland­ers Wally Lewis, hair stylist Stefan Ackerie, and SevenS News journalist Patrick Condren.

Even former prime minister Kevin Rudd has fallen foul of the embarrassi­ng trend, spotted out and about last week in an interestin­g floral shirt and brass-buttoned blazer. He topped the look off with a fringe.

Ms Cant said high-waisted pants and baggy clothing were common problems among more mature men.

“We don’t want to see them in low rise jeans with bellies hanging out either though,” she said.

“No tight shirtsts with buttons popping open, andd I hate older guys in short sleeve collared shirts.

“Old arms shouldn’t go to dinner.”
