A Watsonia wife has controversially told her husband that he’s too old to get away with the current buttoned up shirt trend taking the nation by storm. Rebecca White made the unpopular ruling yesterday morning as she and her husband Cam prepared to leave the house for a special Mothers Day lunch.

While Cam initially railed against the comment, he did accept the ruling and subsequently attended the otherwise pleasant lunch with his shirt in the more traditional configuration of the top two buttons remaining undone. Speaking exclusively to The Watsonia Bugle this morning, Rebecca said, “I had an inkling he was going to try that look soon, but when he got into the car with the buttons done all the way up I said, ‘No mate. Just no. You’re 37 years old, you can’t pull that look off.’”

In response, Cam wouldn’t speak directly to us about the incident, but did release a statement that said, “While I don’t feel that the age of a person should directly impact their fashionability or lack thereof, I accepted the decision of the fashion controller. I can’t promise that I won’t go for the full button up look in future when I’m not in her company, but I’ve taken the honest feedback on board.”
