And I agree that the sandals are a golf fashion no-no. I don't like the look either but I overheat terribly and they're way cooler than even my Climacool shoes.
Also guilty of the towel in the back pocket but it's only washcloth sized and there for the same reason, the heat. Something to stem the ever persistent flow. Think NBA player at the foul-line just dripping sweat, that's me in southern heat and humidity.
So I'm the climate induced fashion freak. When it isn't surface of the sun hot, I promise, I'm quite normal.
I'll give almost all a break in the name of "fashion" but the original and gravest faux pax, the illfitted.... too big, too baggy, too tight, too short. Man or woman it don't look good. Get some clothes that fit folks....
