    I knew I didn't spell it right...

    But anyway the point is that it's ok if you drive and the place you go to isn't some ultra-dirty urban nightmare.


    I was just being a jerk. Did you know that 'bimmer' refers to BMW cars while 'beemer' or 'beamer' refers to BMW motorcyles?

    And a$$hole refers to drivers of both. Edit: Just kidding, BMW owners, you're probably used to it. [​IMG]

    Summer only for ye Clarks? I wear those year-round. Except when it rains, crepe soles are bad news on my city's sidewalks on the hills.

    Yes -- it's the very light colour of them. I like them with shorts or linen pants.

    Summer shoes are usually some ugly shit, Whnay can wear some because he lives in the dirty south and probably drives a beemer to work. If you live in NYC and take the subway nobody wants to see part of your smelly, sooth infested feet. It's a context thing...

    For vacation though knock yourself out.


    Bimmer.

    I found a nice pair of dirty ones, but they only have three eyelets. Still, I think that is ok. Not sure when I would wear the white ones.

    As you can see from the near spotlessness of my white bucks, they don't get out all that much.

    I like white w/ all cream/light/pastel tropical weights, linens & chinos. Also, good w/ seersucker...
