We love you, Georgie—but those jeans have got to go, man.

When it comes to men aging gracefully, the conversation almost always starts and ends with George Clooney. Post ER, the actor has basically played the role of "handsome older man" in popular culture and the envy of aging bros everywhere (plus, yeah, the fantasy of women young and old). Well, we're sad to report that over the past couple of weeks, Clooney has looked decidedly older than ever before, and not just because he is older (but still handsome as ever)—but because his jeans are plain awful.

It started last week, when Clooney was spotted leaving Jimmy Kimmel Live (left) in a pair of pre-washed, relaxed leg jeans that fit like, well, that was the thing—they just didn't fit. They looked like a pair of hand-me-downs from a poorly dressed pal. Or a post-weight loss guy wearing pre-weight loss jeans (which is to say, not modern or good). And when paired with a boxy brown shirt, the whole thing gave off sad dad style vibes.





Then yesterday, while signing autographs in Berlin during a film festival (right), he sported what seem to be the same pair of jeans, this time with a black leather jacket and suede shoes—which actually might be boots. (Unfortunately we don't have denim leg x-ray vision.) The thing is, this look would actually be great if he simply swapped out those jeans for something darker and slimmer, though we'd just take slimmer if Clooney is understandably not into the whole raw denim movement.

Look: We're not endorsing a Clooney in Saint Laurent jeans uprising here. All we're saying is that something with a slight taper below the knee (Levi's 511s, perhaps?) is one of the least expensive, quickest ways to look 45 again.

I have always hated the type/size of jeans George wears!  Tighter would make me much happier.

Me too and I whinge about it endlessly.  So old fashioned.

Slim fit would be better.  None at all would be best of all, but I think we won't be that lucky!

GQ is finally realizing what we have been aware of for a few years now.   

George has said that Amal doesn't really comment on what he wears.  Well in this case I kinda wish she would say something.

I think those jeans are comfortable well broken in , a lot of men don't like fitted jeans .

Amal has to pick her battles she won a bit with the t shirt I hope she is working on the jeans.

My brothers, both in their early 50's, wear their jeans loose when it's just day-to-day casual. Dressy jeans, if there is such a thing, are a slimmer fit. 

I personally don't mind the dad jeans. I just wonder if it's the same pair or if he has a few in rotation.

I think a slimmer fit would be good at public events in a dark wash. He can wear his dad jeans in his off duty time.

The ones he wore on the first night in Ibiza looked a little better not as big on him.

lol!   We all would! The sad thing is, there's room for all of us in those damn jeans!

 I'm starting to think they're the only pair he owns. Bravo! to GQ for calling him out on this. Maybe now he'll get a pair that fits.

Not counting on it. It took him almost 20 years to realise that slim fit shirts had come into fashion before he started wearing them. By the time he gets out of his baggy trousers, they'll be back in fashion again!

Maybe that's his plan?

There must be some stores selling them so they aren't that out of style. Unless he has like a stock pile of them.

Yea he must buy them in packs of 12 from Levis.  Maybe he gets a discount.  

Katiedot, what goes around comes around.  He's just ahead of the fashion curve ....

I reckon it's the same pair, I really do. He's still wearing the same boots he's had for at least a decade with them.

Katie, I'm with you. I think he's had those jeans forever and got them broken in just the way he likes them. Same with the desert boots - they've seen better days, too. But these have been his go-to knock around clothes for years and I doubt he'll change any time soon. (Unless, maybe, Amal "accidentally" destroys the jeans in the wash while learning how to do laundry! Smile )

I think he has more than one pair though just my guess I think he probably gets a couple of pairs at a time.
