There’s a movement afoot. Most guys have always owned up to wanting to be men of action. We’re more comfortable thinking of ourselves that way. But there’s a time and place for it. The office isn’t one of them.
What am I going on about? Shoes. I saw a perfectly acceptable combination of khakis, belt, tie, white shirt absolutely, what? Ruined? I don’t really know what to say. I couldn’t stop staring in horror at the guy’s shoes. Am I a snob? Probably. But even a café shoe would look better than these clodhoppers when paired with a similar outfit.
What happened to loafers? Or stylish slip-on shoes like the Sloop that Will sells. Are we collectively in that much pain that we must clump about in sneakers, all-weather “shoes”, or flip-flops?
