Well, that's fine then. Toenails must be immaculate, of course!

If one likes them and feels confortable, why not ?
No socks and no claws though, please !

I always wear socks with them, why wouldn't you? If anyone doesn't like it they can look at somebody else's feet. Any shoe without socks is not properly comfortable. Sandals and socks persecution has been put about by the Gok Wans of the world.... and he wears purple and white glasses......
Today I'm going to wear sandals and calf length socks with a pair of hideous shorts just to **** people off.

I will be moving to the land of desert wellies in July. My mind is in turmoil.

For at least 1/3rd of the year the temperature will be circa 50 degrees C so I will be in shorts at all times when not in the office.

I normally accompany shorts with flip flops like any self respecting male. Never a sandal.

At age 50, I am not about to start wearing trainers with shorts. I'm not part of the barmy army.

But can you wear flip flops with your shorts when going somewhere more formal than the beach? I fear that I will be drawn into either:

(a) wearing long trousers and some form of boating shoe without socks (like I'm off the set of Miami vice circa 1980), or
(b) trying out variations of leather sandal trying to find one that doesn't make me look like a scout master

Oh the dilemma.....

Is it acceptable for old, warty, sexist, chauvinistic pigs to wear sandals and nail varnish?
