TECH giant Apple has met with a mixed response after unveiling a grey-haired man in a pair of jeans.
The corporation’s latest take on middle-aged manhood prompted a muted reaction from critics, who described it as ‘too similar to other men in an already crowded marketplace’ and ‘less characterful than the classic black polo neck version’.
Technology blogger Mary Fisher said: “Outwardly it is quite similar to last year’s Apple Man, but with subtle enhancements like extra thigh girth that suggests it does a bit of cycling.
“They’re also introduced enhanced glasses for better eyesight and a slicker, more streamlined haircut.
“The real talking point though is the jeans, which are of a dark denim construction and possibly from Gap.
“We know Apple likes jeans on its men but a lot of people were hoping for chinos or Dockers-style cargo pants with a looser, more flattering construction. Maybe next time.”
Apple fan Tom Booker said: “I never thought I would desperately want a grey-haired man with a side parting, but anything that Apple puts out I instantly desire.
“I’m fine with the jeans, it’s a classic casual look so why change it? However they should do another version with the shirt untucked, I would buy both.”
