Is this because you have no feet, or because you have no brain?

The dye from my climbing shoes stain them yellow.

The GNAT Report

Inaugural Trans-Tasman Power Summit and Executive Measure-Up

 

Featuring: @jfrater, @Coxsackie and @incontro

 

jfrater jetted in to Sydney this morning in his Brioni twelve-seater (one of three he recently thrifted on the Bay) and was motorcaded straight to Bijan's atelier for his appointment with Incontro, Fitter To the Stars. Your intrepid GNAT Reporter was on hand to capture all the action in this set of relaxed and intimate images, world-exclusive to TGR.

 

Fabric selection -

 

 

The measure-up commences -

 

 

...and continues -

 

 

Narrow-focus "art" snap inserted as gratuitous filler -

 

 

Master Fitter and happy client -

 

 

I love getting my photo taken standing next to celebs -

 

 

I was talked out of donegal (perhaps not ideal for the Australian climate, unless you live in Ballarat) and instead steered towards a medium-weight POW with blue overcheck -

 

 

 

From this august fabric house -

 

 

The actual commissions are very much on the QT, very hush-hush. However I can confirm that my own project was inspired by this image -

 

 

Remember: you heard it first...on The GNAT Report!

I wear flips when I take the kiddos to the beach on the weekends, which is most weekends as weather nearly always permits and the journey involves nothing more than taking the lift to the ground floor of the building. So I suppose I wear them quite frequently.  That said, I don't think they look great and don't wear them otherwise, they're just practical for that limited purpose.  Also, I lean towards something more basic like Havaianas - all-terrain looking flip flops like Tevos or the ones you linked to I'm afraid I really don't like.

hardly all terrain once there on all you see is a nice leather strap, that being said they cost me 60 pounds or 80 usd.

Great post Cox! Keep 'em coming!

Looks very similar to the POW from Eidos that NMWA carried. Hard to go wrong with a Fox Brothers fabric - enjoy.

Reef: And the beer opener in the sole makes them a hit on the beach.

Oh, that's what's meant with 'flip flops'. I thought it was the nickname his GF gave him.
