Default Am I to old for baggy pants?

So the question, "Am I to old for baggy pants?" is mearly asked to stimulate some conversation...I already know that I love to wear the baggy board pants but I was starting to feel like maybe...now that I'm 30..I need not rock a style that I was rocking while I was 12 (JNCOs anyone?) In my every day life I am a casual dresser and like to wear nice fitting pants but once I hit the slopes I feel like its time to bring the inner kid out and wear the baggy pants and the radical jacket...what do you guys think?

Too old??? Bwahahaha!!! I hear ya. I am 35, but don't feel or look it. Don't really care what anyone else thinks either. My job forces me to dress in a manner that I am not truely comfortable in (dress pants, nice shirt and sometimes a tie), so when I get away from work, I wear what is comfy to me. In regards to sports and recreation......wear what you want. My boarding pants are a bit baggy as well, but I like them that way. I don't want anything even close to restricting.

I go with an in between pants. Not baggy not tight, more like a loose fit.

I'm 31 and wear baggier pants, I do buy the proper size though not 2 sizes too big. I'd feel more out of place wearing the skinny pants at my age. I've been riding for over 20 years and probably 16 of those in baggy pants.

Too old? Wear what you like and say fuck what everyone else thinks. I'm so glad that snowboarding gear has style like something I normally wear. 80% of the skiers on the mountain look like a bunch of fags with tighter fitting straight cut clothes. Now I don't have gear like a park rat with a XXXL jacket that goes to my knees and pants that cover my boots and bindings then drag in the snow and rip on my edges, I just have proper fitting clothes that are comfortable.

+100 internet points for JNCO. But seriously, I'm 31 and I still rock a size XL which is usually 1 size too big for me. I like them longer, baggier, and a little bit of sag to them. But that's how I've always had my snow pants. Anything else just doesn't feel right.

Pushing 32 myself and I wear baggy pants. It's what I use to wear skating as a kid so... it only made sense to snowboard baggy too.

Lolz at JNCOs. I was too poor to get JNCOs as a kid. I had to get the Millers Outpost Anchor Blue Beyond Baggy. Back pocket was so big I could fit a Mead notebook in there without folding it.

Later I learned that JNCO pants went big in the rave scene. Wayyyyyyyyyyy too gay for my taste.

I wear whatever feels the most comfortable, and for me that happens to be baggy pants. Who cares how old you are, just wear what you are comfortable in and go have fun shredding
