My husband can't believe that he can't wear his birkenstock to dinner. I told him I would double check but I thought guys couldn't wear sandals to dinner. He was hoping to wear them with pants. Would really appreaciate peoples input as we are currently debating this.
Thanks

I would (do) wear nice sandals w/summer type khaki's and a nice button-down to Parrot Cay.

Don't know where you got the info. The only requirement is that he has something on his feet.

My husband has worn his for the past 2 years! I just make sure his hooves have had a pedi!!:rotfl:

Thanks for setting me straight. One less pair of shoes to pack sounds great to me and my husband is having a good time gloating.:rolleyes:
Thanks

The only place he couldn't wear them would probably be Palo.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

IMHO, sandals on men are only acceptable when currently on the beach.

My DH lives in his sandals. When I say lives in them, I mean it. We live outside of Washington, DC and it is so cold outside. The only change he has made is that he is now wearing socks with them. OMGoodness! He wore them every place except Palo when we took our 4 day cruise.

for me, the choice came down to sandals or crocs to the dining rooms.

it was a close call, but I finally settled on sandals.

The only thing that bugs me about men wearing sandals, especially to dinner is if they have nasty unmanicured feet! Clean'em up to make sure anyone glancin at the ground doesn't lose their dinner looking at your tootsies.

My DH wore dress sandals to both the regular dining rooms and to Palo and no one ever said a word nor would I expect them to. Yes, he did have a pedi prior to the trip and they are more closed than open as well. I wore Birks myself every night as well - didn't take any other kind of shoe actually. We also saw quite a few pairs of crocs.

OK... Lets bring it to the new world... new generation...:hippie:

I am always telling my son a girl can do anything he can do...

If it is OK for a woman to where sandals or open toe shoes why can't a man do the same. If a man can't then the woman should not.

Remove gender bias :flower3:

My DH & DS both wear nice leather sandals on the "cruise casual" nights. They would not wear flip flops or Crocs in the dining rooms nor would they wear them on formal or semi-formal nights or to Palo - they just don't go with suits or tuxes.:rolleyes1 I see nothing wrong with nice sandals on the less formal nights where they're not wearing dress shirts & ties. I think they actually look better with the Tommy Bahama look that most men have on the casual nights.:confused3
