Grown ups too old for hood­ies

Daily Star - - Wired All week -

ADULTS are too old to wear a hoodie in pub­lic once they hit 27.

And al­most a quar­ter do not think any grown-up should be seen in one, says new re­search.

It would rule out stars such as 007 ac­tor Daniel Craig.

Although mil­lions of Brits wear them, there seems to be a grow­ing in­tol­er­ance of hood­ies.

About one in five of those aged 18-24 al­ready feel too old to wear one, said the survey by fash­ion web­site style­com­

This rises to 51% of the over-55s.

Jonny Chal­lenger, founder of Style Com­pare, said: “Hood­ies are of­ten used to por­tray adults dress­ing younger than they should.

“They are typ­i­cally as­so­ci­ated with younger peo­ple but any­one, no mat­ter what their age, can make a hoodie look great.” YOUTUBE star James Bru­ton set a world record af­ter he un­veiled a 12ft 3D-printed statue of him­self at Winch­ester Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre.


PRISON cells were painted lime green in Mut­tenz, Switzer­land, af­ter ex­perts said it is the colour most likely to keep lags calm.
