FMFFI: I'll take those sandals with some fava beans and a nice chianti

It's been much too long since the last installment of Five Men's Fashion First Impressions, don't you think?

For those of you just joining us, FMFFI is a regular feature in which I ask the five men in my life for their first impressions of a strange fashion item. These impressions range from pegging top models as transsexuals to quoting Willow, and I always find them quite amusing.

Today's item: a striking pair of Jeffrey Campbell sandals, available at Urban Outfitters and first brought to my attention by Samida of Stained Couture:

Men! What say you?

Brother, Age 20: Oh man. Oh man. I don't like 'em at all. They look like hands, for one. They look like Shredder's gloves.

Father: All I can say is, Where's Spartacus when you need him?

Brother, Age 18: They look a little out of place without Sigourney Weaver shooting at them...

Boyfriend: (Laughs) They're horrible. Just horrible. They look like they're made of skin. Human skin.

Brother, Age 13: Hmm...It looks like human scalps. A pile of human scalps.

And there you have it: Solid proof that that Urban Outfitters is selling human scalps for 98 bucks. Really, what kind of world do we live in?

I'll keep these in mind if I ever need to go to a toga party thrown by a cannibal.

I am trying to figure out something.... Why would a man need warm calves and cold feet and ankles or sweaty calves, while his feet and ankles are airing out....

I always look forward to this feature. I think it's a safe bet that the five men in your life have helped in keeping the whole fashblog community just that much more grounded.

I hope I never meet your menfolk because I have 2 pairs of sandals almost exactly like these! I know, I'm a freak! In my defense though, I only have them in black - the tan ones do look a tad human.

I can't imagine what freaky tan lines you would get if you wore these in the summer!
