Should you wear sandals / mandals or flip flops or Birkenstock as a man or not? Let us start by saying you can wear whatever you want, whenever you want in this day and age. So the real question is would a dapper gentleman consider sandals to be in good taste?
If you're a fan of the Gentleman's Gazette, chances are you have a slight bias towards the classic realm of things.
So should you wear sandals today or not?
Now, just think about it this way, have you ever seen an outfit that you thought looked better that was based around sandals than if it would if it had regular shoes? Well, I haven't. So maybe you come up with something, if you do, please share in the comments below. At the end of the day, if you care about style and you want to achieve the classy look, I strongly suggest you stay clear of sandals in most situations.
6 reasons why men shouldn't wear sandals:
First of all, don't wear sandals because most of them look really cheap. Just think of Tevas, Birkenstocks, or flip-flops. Most of them are made out of cheap materials and that's what they look like, cheap. Even if you upgrade and you invest a few hundred dollars in Salvatore Ferragamo flip-flops, they're still just that, flip-flops.
The second reason sandals are not ideal for men is that most men don't have
pretty feet. Now, most women I know really take good care of their feet, it's just something they know they want to pay attention to because often times they wear sandals that expose their feet and they literally want to put their best foot forward. Now, the same isn't true for men. Hairy toes, ungroomed toenails, calluses, warts, and other stuff is just not pretty to look at.
The third reason is no one really wants to see your feet unless, of course, you're a foot fetishist. Just think of the person behind you on the plane or on the bus taking off their shoes and putting them right next to you, I mean isn't that ugly?
The fourth reason sandals are not a good option for gentlemen is that they're a fashion faux pas, more often than not. Just think of country clubs, weddings, nice restaurants, or cities, in general. These are all not good places to wear sandals. Why? Well, they weren't made for that environment.
Which brings us to the next point number five, sandals will make you look like you didn't put much care and effort into your outfit. Sandals are a convenient casual look that you can just slip onto your feet but it's nothing you'd ever want to show up to for interview, for example.
Also last but not least, sandals can be bad for your feet in the long term especially if you walk a lot. The lack of structure is just not conducive and the foot bed is usually quite flat.
If you decide to wear sandals how should you wear them?
I think they look best when worn with shorts, maybe a polo shirt, maybe it's so hot at the beach that you don't even need them, that's okay too. If you get those fisherman sandals, you can maybe even get away with wearing them with a pair of linen pants or let's say a pair of seersucker pants or slacks that are longer, it just has to be a distinct summer fabric, otherwise, it just looks out of place.
