Oh, this? It’s my grandpa’s — how dressing like a retiree became cool

Case in point: the influencer set on a daytime jolly to Ascot racecourse at the end of last year. Eddie Wailes, Callum Mullin and Reuben Larkin, all in their twenties, looked like Grandpa Joe on the Chocolate Factory tour, sporting three-piece tweed suits and newly-polished loafers. Larkin has embraced the look because “a lot of the time people expect younger people to dress a certain way. When we dress like the older generation of people it throws people off.” The staple is braces. “They make every outfit look complete and put together,” he says. Brooklyn Beckham and Madonna’s son Rocco Ritchie, keen fans of slack supports, would tend to agree.
