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, Vladimír Špidla.

Thanks to Jakub Choutka for the link!

Added 16:47 Tue Aug 19: Lidovky’s “Český 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.
