The reaction to my tongue in cheek choice of an espadrille model with ankle straps to illustrate a recent essay convinced me that some readers need a less controversial summer shoe to wear away from the office. There are always boat shoes, of course, but they get a little old. For a change, try the pre-faded blue Sperry Striper (about $50 directly from the company). Wear them ashore, with the usual shorts or trousers and a polo or tee shirt. Bolder men may accompany their Stripers with a neckerchief. Or, they can reserve that touch to accompany their espadrilles.
