  1. Thank you, and others I know here as well, for your service to our country.
  2. Looking good, heels like that are now fashionable for men, no need to worry. You can even get them in men’s sizes.
  3. I am two weeks late, but a men in heels thread on r/MFA received some pretty good response! Seems there continues to be more guys even outside of HHP that want to wear heels. Here is an interesting thought: ”Just a few years ago, men wearing skinny jeans or showing bare ankle was seen as “gay” or whatever, and those connotations are completely gone now. Why do you think that happened, and do you see that happening in the future with high heels?”
  4. It depends on what the thought is in the overall outfit. r/malefashion is nuts over fits like this: Agree, John Wayne was not showcasing his sandals when he wore this: https://imgur.com/gallery/CpAEjaD
  5. Those Rick Owens Kiss platforms came up again in r/malefashion today in my unrelated submission that generated quite a bit of dialogue. I remembered that almost all of Rick’s models walked the runway this year in those platforms, and interestingly the heels felt more like a string of continuity rather than a direct shout out to heels. There is a significance to the way the Kiss platforms interact specifically with the rest of the pieces in Rick’s outfits, and I think some of that may be lost when looking at the shoes the way the Marc Jacobs wears them. In short, I feel like platforms, when done in a way that looks good on men, are rock star shoes. The rest of the look would have to support that rock star aesthetic and personality. The role that the Kiss platforms play in our high heeled adventures is somewhat tangential, but the original spirit of them does not work against us I think. Many of us do have heels in a more appropriate style, and use them as a string of continuity in our overall style, rather than shouting for attention towards them...
  6. Had a hard time passing up these boots at the store - walked out with two pairs: In other news, I am attending a formal event this weekend - have the boots with 3.5" heels ready to go:
  7. In my experience, the answer is "sometimes". If you have the time, it is fun to shop around and find out. The Stuart Weitzman highland boots literally feel like socks on my feet - it is an experience like none other I have tried on. After I tried them on I just had to have them - fortunately it was at an outlet store and I only paid a fraction of the $798 MSRP. If you go to an outlet store like Off Fifth and Nordstrom Rack they are all out on shelves, self service, and you can try on a lot of different nice shoes without bothering anyone.
  8. It didn't work. Still waiting for rain. But the sun casts fun shadows on the heels!
  9. I did my first purge today. It was to a good cause, Dress for Success, and even sponsored by the company I work for. It was only a couple pairs of heels, a skirt, and a pair of Dries Van Noten pants that have just been sitting in the attic all year. Better for someone to enjoy them rather than moths and mice.
  10. I would extend that to say that we don’t just offer them the right, but also teach the power of making informed, confident, and responsible decisions, even when they go against the grain of popular thought.
  11. Meanwhile, it is really dry at home. Bought a new raincoat hoping that we will get some rain soon:
