What a nice surprise…the file was taking a while to download and lo and behold THE GETAS appeared! It made me laugh (in a good way). Such a great image! I am glad it is so big so you can really see the details.Kimfortyovertwenty.blogspot.com

In addition to having style, your father must have had very strong abs! I wear those simple beautiful wooden Japanese sandals and they put Dr. Scholl's exercise sandals to shame!
September 21, 2014 at 1:53 am
I seriously doubt that you could put Scholl exercise sandals to shame. I’m sure you’re just using Scholls as a reference point of hyperbole to describe how marginally more culturally correctt Japanese geta are, albeit impractical and uncomfortable.

Think you inherited his stylish ways!
May 14, 2011 at 2:45 pm
So gorgeous and timeless. It looks like a composed editorial shot.
May 14, 2011 at 2:54 pm
I love everything about this photo: Alison's stylish father, the beautiful way the shot is composed, the architectural details and that lovely faded yet rich vintage color. Bravo!
May 14, 2011 at 3:25 pm
The shoes! The highlight here is definitely the shoes! And what a lovely story, good for them!
May 14, 2011 at 3:32 pm
This is so good i love the sandals and the trousers :) he looks so relaxed i love this type of photograph
May 14, 2011 at 3:33 pm
your dad looks so chic, like he was born to wear small japanese geta. Very nice, i have some great fotos of my granma, going to fancy cocktails in the 60s but in my hometown… hope to go and visit soon so i can scan them. keep up these great posts
May 14, 2011 at 3:38 pm
I am Japanese but not familiary with tne name of the town"Hiru". Geta(wooden sandals)doesn't suit him much.

I guess this disproves the idea that one can't wear flip flops and be fashionable. :)
