In the youth-obsessed culture of fashion media, where can the more mature sartorial eye turn for age-appropriate inspiration? While resources are still few and far between, bloggers like David Evans of Grey Fox are slowly changing the landscape of style to accommodate its significant older demographic, giving them an opportunity to see themselves reflected in contemporary fashion. On today’s show, David joins me to talk about the foundation and growth of Grey Fox, Britain’s growing Made in the UK movement, a few style guidelines that will help older men to look and feel their best, some of his favorite accessories, a few Grey Fox fashion icons, and more.

Plus, I’ve got a brand new single off the much-anticipated September debut from Toronto duo Electric Youth and a preview of next week’s album release from Brooklyn’s Bear In Heaven, along with tracks from Ages and Ages, Dinowalrus, Dead Stars, and The Trouble with Templeton. So join us for an hour of fashion that proves older is not only wiser, but more stylish!
