fogeydom (plural fogeydoms)

  1. The state of being a fogey.
    • 2012, Andrew Greig, ‘Paths to Enlightenment’, Literary Review, issue 399:
      The latent fogeydom never goes away entirely: contemporary or modern architecture, derided as ‘childish’, ‘infantile’ or plain ‘ugly’, is consistently and erroneously elided with postwar cheap tower-block brutalism and the destruction of town centres.
