I'm not a big fan o de-aging in general. Since Peter was young in the first place I tend to be a little more lenient, until they start really pushing the youth button. It is especially frustrating since most of the new characters are younger, so why even do it.
Dematteis once said when asked a about a similar topic that diversity means diversity in age too. I started reading Doctor Strange as a teenager, and part of what I liked is that he wasn't bogged down by those typical problems in my life or in the mot too distant future. I have never and assume never will have any problems with older characters. I actually find when characters are allowed to at least act older than that 15-25o or 30 year sweet spot they are much richer and more intriguing.
when it comes to the costume and the scarf... I don't really hate it, but I do need to get used to it. The lack of grey temples though bugs mee a lot since, as you say they are iconic.
