“I hate sandals on men. Flip-flops make me nauseated. If you are at the beach and you go in to grab a drink at the bar, that’s fine. But if I’m at a restaurant and a guy sits next to me in flip-flops, it’s disgusting” — Designer Mark McNairy, who goes on to explain that he did design a pair of flip-flops, because “it’s a saleable item.”
