    This right here I disagree with and seems to be the "mind set" here. Not everyone lives in a cold ass corner somewhere, sometimes it's hot and sometimes you just want to be comfortable. If you take care of your feet, sandals are no problem for errands or class. Just because some of you can't wear sandals does not mean others cannot

    i think people here just say that to say it. as much as they say they don't like feet. i bet when they spot someone wearing sandals they can't take their eyes off the toes

    Now I'm extra sorry I missed it.
    Nah, definitely don't button the bottom button on a three-button. There are some two-buttons with a really high buttoning point where they look better with the bottom button buttoned as well. My main point was that right now it looks like the narrowest point in your silhouette is right at that buttoning point (at the middle button), which is up pretty darn high and kinda gives the appearance of an egg shape that you probably don't actually have. Like I said, it's cropped jacket + high buttoning point + hands in pockets, and someone mentioned the untucked shirt, which is probably a factor as well. The cropped pants are cool, too, but they also sorta shorten everything visually, so the whole thing ends up looking a little squished vertically and widened horizontally. I realize that in some fits, this may be the point (anti-fit, Yojhi, blah, blah, blah), but it's not traditionally considered a flattering look.

    Ha, seems that way. It's weird every post about feet has to be immediately followed by "gross" and "fucked up", like if this was 5th grade and people have never seen feet before. The high end brands we covet here make sandals that sell out in good sizes quicker than their sneakers

    Your feet are not attractive, no one wants to see them

    On the other hand, the squished verticality does lend a certain whimsical Tom Cruise-ish-ness to the equation, almost as if the poster could, at any moment, peal into maniacal laughter, or pounce up and down on your couch. This + chambray = a win for me.

    The jacket looks really great open, it's completely unstructured and as thin as a typical Chambray shirt. It drapes like a cardigan in some ways, i'll try post a pic as an example. I don't think I would ever wear it buttoned up like it is in the photo!

    I do agree about the egg shape, all this feedback should make for a terrific second attempt at the same outfit. Probably a different shirt though!

    I often see people getting around Melbourne (during 9 degree mornings) in Thongs (sandals, flip flops, whatever). It ludicrous, though I am in no way opposed to wearing them here when it hits 46 (114.8 for you guys) in the summer.

    Unless you got a size 5 pedicured foot with black satin nail polish I don't want to see your fugly man toes. Perhaps sandal lovers should consider moving to west hollywood where others of the same ilk will appreciate your feet enthronged by heinous sandals.
