"I think what you should know about me is that I'm 83 years old, and I think that's important," Mary Borysewicz says while en route to the grocery store in a Canadian tuxedo. "We're the Gloria Steinem group!" She describes her style as "medium conservative," which she's quick to clarify "is very different from my politics." Her senior pride is evident in her denim brand of choice: Not Your Daughter's Jeans. "They fit well," the retired medical editor says, "and that's hard to find."
