Wow, I really hate any kind of sandals. They have no business on a style forum either
post #1997 of 11974
I have to agree. No hate intended-----except towards the sandals themselves. The jeans are not flattering, either. Maybe they would look better with shoes, but the way they are pooling at the ankles is not good. And the crotch-codpiece-bunching is discouraging. The t-shirt fits! xcoldricex---that's good advice you've offered. also, that leather shirt is sick sick sick.

I hate the sandals too. But I disagree about the fit of the jeans. It looks really natural to me, and thus, good. The bunching around the ankles, the slack around the crotch and the loose, relaxed thighs are all very consistent with either a grunge look or a California relaxed look, and that outfit could easily fit into either category. I find the juxtaposition of the easy fit of the jeans and the fitted tee really flattering, and a nice change up from the fitted silhouettes we've been seeing lately. But the sandals truly suck, imo. A pair of Chucks would be much better.

(BTW, I have jeans that range from super tight and low to jeans that are relaxed (but not as relaxed as candle's,) so I like both, though I think that jeans like Long Johns are a bit much, as are Ecko/Fubu fits.)

i'm gonna borrow from the both of you and say that i like the fit of the jeans, just don't like the color. way too "bro-ish".

candle, i actually like the sandals. I have a pair of rainbows too and I wear them all the time. Sometimes its just a nice, warm, sunny day or I just dont feel like wearing shoes. Nothing wrong with sandals. I think some of these sandal haters just live in cold climates or something.

Yeah I wear sandals more in the summer. Shoes can be warm when it's > 100 outside

I got this really nice sneakers today, but my digital camera is failing me.
The USB won't recognize it, according to my computer messages.

Hopefully I'll get the darn thing working again, soon.

thanx for the comments guys.

I think the blazer is suppose to fit a bit longer than usual, maybe how suit jackets fit (if there is any difference?) .I got it tailored, so I think I can have it adjusted, if I really need to.

I could go for the tapered look but ill have to wait 6 months before I can find some spare cash to spend on jeans.

Uh no, I live in socal and flip flops/jeans have no reason being worn together unless you want to be abercrombie which = ubergay. They even look uglier than dog doo doo.

stylez, the blazer is too long...don't think you can get that fixed

I disagree. Not about the blazer being too long--it is--but about the fixing part. It's pretty easy for a tailor to shorten the jacket, and the fact that those aren't flap pockets will make it easier to do so without screwing up the look too much.

Yeah, i'd agree that it's kind of a lazy look, I'll usually wear sandals (not flip flops) with khaki shorts or something, for a day by the water or something active where I don't want to wear nicer denim.

Are you honestly saying that there's more work involved in wearing a pair of Vans slipons than sandals?

Not really, but I get the feeling its more of a step into them on your way out the door type aesthetic rather than a carefully chosen outfit.

Nothing wrong with nice ones by the beach with shorts.

Areth, the convenience thing is just an excuse. They really just think it's fashionable b/c everyone else does it. It's such a disgusting epidemic, everywhere you go in oc and la you see it. To me, it looks like you can't afford shoes.

Sauce, didn't know playboy.
