'Old man' things you buy and enjoy

B3 bomber jackets - they are pretty much only worn by older 60+ fellas (who are also usually the only fellas who can afford them).  But I've loved them every since I saw Sly doing cold-weather training in one, maaaany moons back...
 
Horlicks - made PROPERLY, this is just paradise in a cup, especially when it's freezing outside.

    Quite right, I should have been more specific....

    My tastes have changed to stronger things which I think is a little "old manish".  Eg, I like strong coffee, real ales and more recently whiskey.
     
    If it wasn't for the health implications I'd consider trying cigars as I've heard they go well with a good whiskey.

    I fancy a nice cigar too. But I'll raise your cigar with pipe smoking. An hour smoking a pipe is an hour well spent. I find the pipe works best by itself, a good cigar goes well with a nice single malt scotch but if it's some cheap whisky don't bother.
     
    I also wet shave with a straight razor from time to time. Not something I do during the week though.
     
    The health implication of smoking a cigar from time to time are negligible. It's probably not something you'd want to do too often anyway because a good cigar isn't cheap.

    I might try it but as someone who has never smoked in my life I may not enjoy it.
     
    I got a couple of semi-expensive single malts for xmas (£40-£50 a bottle) so I'm just learning to appreciate them.  Although after having a couple and some beers almost every night over Xmas, I'm leaving them alone for a few weeks!

    Start slow, a good cigar has a very strong flavour, for a first timer it may taste like nothing but pure bitterness. Same as whisky really. It's only after you're somewhat used to it and numbed to the bitter flavour that you can really experience the aroma. Also you may find it outright burns your mouth and tongue the first times.
     
    I definitely recommend you go for a quality but small cigar, over a large but lower quality one. You can get very good small cigars (half coronas and such) for like 5£ or less, cubans even. And despite the size, a quality cigar is very densely packed so it'll still last you a good half hour.

    Right, now I'm tempted!  Where would I get one of these "good small cigars" from?

    Why would you want to wean yourself onto cigars and risk mouth and throat cancer?  Stay away IMO.

    Here's the thing that i don't understand, i have never smoked and never been tempted to either. If smoking tobacco is so dangerous than surely so is inhaling motoring fumes every day of your lives if you live in the middle of a town or city like i do?
     
    Why is something never done about this, and i would imagine that small toddlers or ever babies would have severe health implication inhaling these fumes?
