Socks and Scandals
The newly arrived Woolrich Woolen Mills lookbook is pretty fantastic stuff, including at least three items we’d like to snap up as soon as we can think spring/summer thoughts again—but one particular styling note caught our attention as a little… off.
Direct your attention to this gentleman’s feet, and you’ll see something you haven’t seen in a lookbook in quite some time. Yes, those are socks. And sandals. Together.
For decades, it’s been considered a crunchy faux pas—unacceptable anywhere outside of a health food store—but apparently Daiki Suzuki disagrees. And while it works perfectly with the mountain-climber chic Suzuki’s aiming at, we can’t help but think the gentleman in question would look better if he switched to hiking boots, or just let his toes wiggle free.
