Apparently, flip-flops have been around for six thousand years. So maybe that’s why you, perpetual rubber thong wearer, think we should wear them everywhere we go, the way our ancestors paired them with white sheets. But listen, you know how you wouldn’t wear your bathing suit to lunch in Orchard Road? The same thing applies to flip-flops. There’s a time and place for everything, and flip-flops are for the beach or poolside – the way they were when they entered pop (or more accurately, surf) culture in the 1950s. In fact, town authorities should ban flip-flops from town altogether. It doesn’t go with your tailored pegged pants and silk knit top, anyway. Put on a pair of sandals, that extra strap will still let your feet breathe if you’re about to argue about the hot climate here.
