    I had an uncle like that too - he insisted I had to wear a tie to church. I was about twelve at the time. I showed up grinning wearing a tie - and a T-shirt. He flipped his lid and right there on the church steps yelled something wholly inappropriate, much worse form than my tie and T-shirt combo…

    You could have worn it as a belt.

  2. When I was 8, I had an uncle who believed that you had to have a suit and tie on to open Christmas presents on Christmas morning. So my dad got these t-shirts for opening presents Christmas morning one year when we were visiting. My dad and my uncle had different views of life.

    Interesting.....   Fashion trends change as we all know. Heck I still have some paisley print shirts in the closet and I am waiting for a comeback.  Within the past few weeks I have also seen articles in print and on the net talking about men wearing heels, and to a lesser degree even dresses and skirts.   

    @SF 1969 called, they want their paisley shirts back. I still have a few too.  But those prices are outrageous.

    I have been telling my friends I'm a "trend setter" with my heels and other things I wear.  Now I have proof!😉

  4. You need to give more information because size matters in availability.

    What size are you?

    How high of a heel?

    You seem to really like pumps? Is this the style you want to wear?

    I might wear designer heels now and then, but none were design for men.

  5. First welcome to HHP. Sorry that it seems like people here are beating up on your sneaker choice.  This style of sneaker is geared to a younger crowd with the bright and bold colors.  But put spurs on them and @spikesmike might even want a pair.🤣

    I have a pair of wedge sneakers but only with a 2.5-inch heel and leopard print. My doctors want me to have at least that high of a heel. 

    Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Thanks for the explanation, although I know nothing about cricket so cannot really visualise the concept or make any comparison!

    Sorry my bad stereotype, I thought EVERY Brit knew and was required to played cricket in school.  The spin put on a ball when thrown or kicked (soccer) helps to determines the trajectory. "Curve" ball have an arc from their spin.  A knuckleball is a ball throw with no or very little spin. The direction comes from how the wind interacts with the stitches and causes it to be erratic. The name comes from how you grip the ball.

  7. I've had similar comments from the sales staff.  In 2011 I finally figured out that my feet did not fit men's shoes and decided to try if they fit women's shoes.  I was at a New Balance Outlet store in the women's section when the sales woman came over to tell me that I was in the women's section and the men's was on the other side of the store. I told her I knew, and that men's shoes really didn't fit and I was going to try women's. She answered some questions and help me find a pair that fit me. I have not bought pair of men's shoes since.

    After that I went to a big (women's) Macy's with a large shoe department a got my first booties with a whooping 1.5 inch heels.  The rest is history.

    Now I'm never told I am in the women's section, one look at the shoes I have on is enough to tell the sales staff I'm in the correct section.

    I hesitate to ask what a 'knuckle ball is'.   😕

    A knuckleball or knuckler is a baseball pitch thrown to minimize the spin of the ball in flight, causing an erratic, unpredictable motion.  Many baseball players have a tough time hitting such a pitch. Very similar to a knuckleball in cricket.

    I thought  I would throw a knuckleball (instead of a curve ball) to lighten up this analytical discussion. 

    Those vintage Victoria's Secret stiletto wedges were one of my first high heel purchases. Before those I only had 3 inch heels.
