Wear what the fuck you want. Honestly, when it comes to being it comes to being 'not quite as young as you used to be'(ive reworded that three times and even im still kinda insulted by it), style- so long as your sensible about it has no bounds. Sure, you'll look a little peculiar dresses in a NBL singlet to your knees, with a grill and skull candies strapped you your EG2's throwing westside gang sings.

But you now have the opportunity to play the "wiser" card and bust out some stuff that is going get the cougars looking for someone their own age. Companies are starting to put out cuts that are suited to....ah forget it.

Any colour if going to be fine, most styles of jacket are going to be fine. Basically, you just need to find something that fits right, has the cut your looking for, the features you want and looks good. The link that Smokehaus sent is a pretty styling jacket, i'd certainly wear it (in Green or grey). Try and steer towards solid colours if thats your thing.

Im in my mid 30's and wear a softshell hoodie in the warmer months of winter - its great, it doesnt heat up that much, and its light on the body.

Perhaps look on the websites of Bonfire, 686, L1, Billabong is coming out with some pretty decent stuff in recent years, as well as 3CS...

Really, the options are near on endless...
