Dear men: Wearing flip flops to work is "the equivalent of flashing your genitalia in people's faces"

A dear friend of mine, who is in her 30’s, recently went on a date with some loser she met on some social media site. They agreed to meet and she arrived a little early and then she sees this guy, who btw is also in his 30’s, roll up on a skateboard with a backpack and flip-flops. They said their hellos and within minutes she was calling me on her cell from the bathroom and then we were laughing our a$$es off while she escaped out the back of the restaurant leaving the aforementioned loser sitting on the patio out front.

How much you want to bet this idiot still lives with his parents, has moved back in with them after realizing his gender studies degreee is useless and can’t land him a job as he isn’t a lesbian, or lives in Kensington Market…muhahahahahaha!

The new short panted suit and tie with a backpack is a good look, sort of wussie schoolboy. There is something worse than flipflops on a guy and hairy toes. Its loose baggy joggers with the elastic waistband. I’ve heard it said they are worn for comfort and not fashion, but some also don’t wear any “Heidi’s Whities”under there, and let me tell you that combination is not a winning one, if you want to talk about flashing your business.

This fits to a “T” some of the Progs I know. And they thinks it’s just so cool. Gavin should do a piece on the Lumber-sexual, but I believe that nutty fad only applies to Toronto.

This is supposed to be comedy…? I’m not leftist, Roy, but I have to agree with James Walker…

flip flops…on a man….just simply wrong.

Agree completely with Gavin’s points with one small exception.
If you are a CEO and your stock of flipflops have been custom made from a time expired Yokohama that once graced your beautiful Bentley Continental, then I think you can play the sentimentality card and get a pass.

Glad to see you back from re-hab, Gavin. Just kidding. I agree. What’s with that? The world is a certain way and then these clowns come along and do it all wrong. By th way, I don’t think genitailia qualifies as a dirty word. But, yeah, feet, and backpacks with a suit! Who the copulate do they think they are? Fashion is funny. It’s like putting on a costume to play a part in a period movie. If they make a movie about now, a thousand years from now, will they have flip-flops and backpacks with a three piece suit? I mean, we’re gonna look stooped.

i see the leftist are out in Full force attacking the Rebel trying to discredit it.

Aww, he missed the people who wear flip flops with socks. Extra creepy!

FINALLY some vindication for my own thoughts on men wearing backpacks and flip – flops. Forget the guys in 3 piece suits, NO over the age of 22 should be wearing a backpack unless he is on a hike in the woods. Screw all the haters Gavin – how much do you wanna bet those dorks wore flip-flops somewhere other than the shower at the weight room today … ? ;)

Less is more. The less I see Gavin McInnis, the more I will actually read articles and watch clips on this site.

I would be happy to find a pair of pants that were not designed (and you won’t convince me this was not deliberate) to fall down to your butt cleavage. And lug 20 pounds of briefcase…I have sciatica and unbalanced loads are as painful as the Pope’s pear. I don’t wear sandals because the ravages to my feet brought on by fashionable shoes are not much different from Chinese foot binding.

Why would I take fashion advice from someone who can’t seem to properly tie a tie, or buy a shirt that fits him? And suspenders? Did you lose your belt, or is that to accommodate your colostomy bag?
