I was wearing boat shoes and sneakers for beaches. It was always wet and full of sand. It wasn't comfy at all.

Guys I am so far from propaganda of this kind of really ugly shoes. Just posted what I was wearing during our short outdoor trip.

Sorry if it may hurt someones eyes here nod[1].gif

Thank you.

IS he really trying to defend wearing those monstrosities that are only (kind of) acceptable on old women tending a garden??

Kappelan, unlike the rest of the fellas here, I can see your logic in choosing the plastic shoes (though I do not agree), but the rest of the outfit is not so hot. If the shoes were the only element out of place, you'd be fine. gdl shares my philosophy on beach footwear. Sneakers all the way.

To the person who posted a picture of flip-flops, go wash your mind out with soap. Those things are an abomination. Also, espadrilles and water? Yeah, no.

I've worn sneakers (or sometimes boat shoes) to the beach and outdoor places for the last 20+ years... What's the worst that will happen - get them wet? a bit of sand that needs to be tapped out? big deal...

+1. agree, no big deal.

So in light of my quest to look less like an extra from Monarch of the Glen, I've been purchasing things that people tell me are age appropriate.

 

On the missus' insistence I recently purchased two non-collared shirts from H&M (something I didn't own except as sleepwear) and a hooded sweatshirt from the same, which I'm told are age appropriate clothes. 

 

I know this really belongs in SW&D but I don't understand anything they talk about, so I wanted to get opinions on whether these fit, and whether I look like the first semester philosophy major hippie I feel like when I put the hoodie on, or whether I should actually keep the monstrosity.

 

Thanks for the input.

Seavees?
Rivieras?
Vans?
Stan Smiths?
Even some kind of neoprene wet suit shoes would be better.

For me it's the same logic as to wear a rubber boots for walking through forest in rain or for fishing. Agree with you about weirdness of the whole outfit though.

Typically I won't touch flip-flops, but they work well for the beach. That's really the only time I would wear them.

I have tons of stuff in my closet, tons... but whenever I go casual, it seems like I almost always go for these tried and true pieces of mine. They're actually, what I'm wearing today, too.

 

 

 

^ Nothing special here. Just my favorite, best-fitting linen shirt I own. Made by Perry Ellis, I'll wear her with anything from sweatpants before I hit the gym locker to Versace pants. Love this shirt.

 

 

^ These shorts... I wish I had a pair of pants with the same pattern on them, really. I like loud, odd things. Made by Denim & Supply.

 

 

^ Here's a group shot. 

 

 

^ These shoes... what else can I say? Beat to hell and back, love them so much, I bought a pair in navy. Of the 40-some pair of shoes I own, I wear these the most when I go casual.

 

 

^ Here's an interior shot for anyone who was curious.

They look fine. The henley may be a little tight, the hoodie maybe a little big, but within reason. The overall vibe isn't hippie but is very "college."
