Introduction
There seems to exist a clandestine dress code that all German ‘best agers’ secretly commit themselves to: Come retirement, and they all preferably start to wear beige. At least, this is what Hamburg based filmmaker Sylvie Hohlbaum observed. But she couldn’t care less. Until just after his 65th birthday, her father, of all people, stood before her: dressed in beige cap-a-pie.
