Hollywood Casual, Down to Their Toes - Page 3

I have nice feet that dont smell, so I think that enables me to wear flip flops year round (which I do)

I find the idea that dressing well is an imposition very Philistine and irritating.

I suppose I just don't relate to people whose idea of the sublime is sitting on a beach.

*Applauses* I fully agree with you. Being dressed appropriately is a matter of courtesy not only to yourself but also to others. And life is made of other things than goofing around during holidays.

a&f, hollister, kenneth cole.... all built themselves empires too.

On some people, it can look nice. I have seen some pretty extravagant "flip-flops" whose name ought to be modified to reflect the level of esthetics. What bothers me is all the double-takes they cause... I keep thinking people are walking barefoot...

I do not like wearing flip flops myself.

One can mostly assume that the flip-flop fad has peaked and surely teenagers will find a new fad and Hollywood will go to something new and we all can tsk-tsk about that.

So is that better than total spiritual enlightenment?

I'm not a fan of flip-flops with anything but the most casual wear. I can't imagine any professional circumstance in my field in which they'd be appropriate, unless a client invited me to a pool party. And, in any case, I'm not interested in looking at most people's feet, particularly when so many simply refuse to take care of them before sharing them with the world.
