    22 years ago (yikes) I bought a pair on Ios for $3 that were black. Everyone, men and women, wears them to/from the beach. The jute sole will not stand up to much more than short walks on sand. Also fine for lounging around the outdoor bars, drinking a greek-brewed Heineken or Amstel while taking in all the Scandinavian scenery...[​IMG]

    They are fine for beachwear - certainly better than flip-flops.

    Sorry guys ,what's this obsession with being gay and gayness?
    Is SF a site for morale crusade from the midwest or Rvr Phelps or a style forum?
    Most fashion designers were or are gays therefore the anti-gay lobby if they do stick do their guns (i'm sure they have many of them!!!!),they will be wearing chinese copies of everything!!!!!!!!!!
    No Ralph Lauren,Lagerfeld,Dolce&Gabanna,Lacroix,YSL,Versace and so many others....
    Sorry for the little rant because i'm up for a bit of banter but gay-bashing is a bit annoying.............
    P.S: I'm straight as an arrow therefore ,no hidden agenda in my thread...

    I think you may miss the humor in a lot of the gay gay gay references. Either a language or a cultural barrier.

    No ,it's not a language problem because i do speak english 24/24 for more than a decade but i have maybe missed the irony in some of them ,i do admit.....
    Apologies to everyone but anti-gay stuff can be quite unsavoury in some threads with the usual cortege of stereotypes and symbols...
    My mum used to tell me "a Joke is only funny as long everybody continue to laugh when hearing it." and she was right......
    98% of the forum users are up for a laugh but a little hardcore group on different threads is showing a more discriminatory agenda...
    Guys , continue to be UNPC because that is what we love you (IS THAT GAY ENOUGH?)!!!!!!!

    . . . I recall seeing Edward, the Duke of Windsor wearing espadrilles and he's not gay.
    Then why did he marry a man?

    Rjman ,we're always a foreigner or an outsider at certain points in our life....
    Look at the debate between NY and NJ....Superb!!!!
    A real lesson in human nature and the need to belong and being different in the same time!!!!!!
    Anthony is not a Parisian anyway.....[​IMG]
    My mum who was from the Pyrenees used to remind me that Paris was full of provinciaux............
    They hate Parisians everywhere in France and that's our badge of honor...
    The real Parisians are a minority and i'm not one of them...
    I have chosen Paris like Miss Josephine Baker...
    Tell him next time that "Tu parles francais comme une vache espagnole"....
