I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: If I ever wear socks and sandals, please, JUST SHOOT ME!!! It’s a cry for help, really!
This site features lots of pics of socks and sandals, including one of the Czech Prime Minister, VladimÃr Å pidla.
Thanks to Jakub Choutka for the link!
Added 16:47 Tue Aug 19: Lidovky’s “ČeskÃ½ Å¡ok” series last week featured a Slovenian student who also picked up on the socks and sandals theme. If you can read Czech, the comments are also informative. I’m translating one here for your information:
It’s dementia, fashion and stupidity – somebody said that socks can’t be worn with sandals and immediately everyone humbly listens. I appreciate the guys who wear sandals and socks! Because it’s an expression of one’s individuality and a defecation on fashion bullshit. At the end of the day, every land has its customs – we have wearing socks and sandals – which I don’t mean to say that otherwise Czechs are well-dressed. So, if I was a guy, I’d wear socks (not white ones – that’s really weird) and sandals on purpose, and the criticism that may come can go to hell.
