Though many are loath to admit it, Mick Jagger is a fashion icon. Everyone from Harry Styles to fashion label Yves Saint Laurent have copied his trend-setting style.
And when he has something to say about style, men need to listen up. Here’s a great example regarding flip flops.
“People just don’t dress up like they used to,” Jagger recently lamented to Rolling Stone. “When people went to the theatre, everyone dressed up. I don’t really miss that.”
“But do you like going to the theatre and seeing a bloke with not very nice legs in shorts and flip-flops?” Jagger asked.
And the answer to that question is an unequivocal “no”. Unless you’re about to catch some rays at the beach, or are heading to shower in the gym locker room, your feet should never touch flip flops.
Why? Because they’re inferior shoes, and they don’t cover up much — including your disgusting feet.
“Men’s toes are, in general, unsightly,” Donnie Kwak, editor at Complex magazine, told Mashable last year. We couldn’t agree more.
Men don’t take care of their feet like women do. They don’t get pedicures, and they don’t wash their feet as often as they should — or sometimes at all.
No one needs to see that.
Your summer social life will thank you.
