3 PAIRS OF SANDALS for 2010

FOURTEEN MAY, TWO THOUSAND AND TEN

It’s time for a minimal sandal moment. By clicking on the image above, three pairs of sandals can be seen in sequence. While each is unique, they share a spirit of pleasing simplicity.

First: tan leather multi-strap sandals by PIERRE HARDY worn with pale grey jeans by UNIQLO, which have been rolled up to better display the striking angles of this sandal’s design.

Second: a pair of blue nubuck strap sandals with silver buckles, also by Mr. PIERRE HARDY but this time for the house of HERMÈS. They edge towards the classic “jesus” sandal but are updated by the sheer distance between the straps.

Third: black leather asymmetric thong-toed sandals by JIL SANDER, which are much simpler than they sound, worn with cotton beige chinos with a crisply ironed front pleat by UNIQLO. Nice! Facebook  Twitter

    I like all three of them. I have seen the Hermes ones in brown leather and think that they are nicer than this version. Check Camper for nice sandals this summer too.

    quite exquisite, that blue nubuck Hermès sandal.

    i already have a similar version from a season or two ago in a darker blue nubuck with ankle strap, otherwise it would be amongst my bet for the season to come. i would also go with the delirious lanvin presented earlier this week.

    these recommendations were very fun. please do similar posts in the futur, maybe on the theme of the perfect leather jacket, or the always urban chino.

    i hate sandals and even worse are sandals worn by men with ugly feet

  4. lineage of influence:

    ^ I would say that if you are going to wear sandals at the very least you should make sure your feet are half decent. I’m sticking with canvas shoes.

  5. magnus:

    the jil sander ones look great!

  6. World Man About Town:

    Thanks for the sandals suggestions this week. Some interesting options here. My opinion on this is on my blog article here: http://worldmanabouttown.wordpress.com/2010/05/14/battle-of-the-gladiator-sandals/.

CURRENT ISSUE
19

SPRING & SUMMER 2014

What a return! The unmistakable form of Mr. BORIS BECKER, as photographed by his compatriot JUERGEN TELLER, graces the cover of this 19th edition of Fantastic Man – the issue for Spring & Summer 2014. Part of the accompanying interview takes place at tennis legend BORIS’ London home, in the familiar district of WIMBLEDON. Where else, after all, would a six-time GRAND SLAM singles champion choose to live and work? Elsewhere in the issue, a quartet of ELITE MENSWEAR designers – Mr. TOM FORD, Mr. STEFANO PILATI, Mr. ALESSANDRO SARTORI and Mr. BRENDAN MULLANE – are interviewed and photographed as part of unprecedented investigation into the LOFTIEST and most lucrative echelons of the fashion business. The magnificent archive and working practices of the mononymous SNOWDON are discussed at home with the society portraitist. Plus, what is the humble DRY CLEANER actually doing with the garments you hold most dear, why do airline cabin crew particularly adore the celebrated newshound Mr. RICHARD QUEST, and how does one get involved in the fabulous vintological craze that is HYPERDECANTATION? These questions and more are answered in the brilliant new Fantastic Man. Order now
