A Short Comment on the Malu Fernandez Bruhaha

Since Malu had already publicly apologized for the hurtful things she said in her "From Boracay to Greece" article, I think the Editors-in chief of the two publications she wrote for (Manila Standard and People Asia) should also issue their respective apologies for not doing their jobs.

As EICs they should have prevented Ms. Fernandez's article from being published owing the potential sensitivities that it will touch on; style of writing not withstanding.

To the Editors-in cheif of Manila Standard and People Asia, crawl out of your rocks!

Jeans & Socks

Q: “I’m wearing jeans and brown leather shoes. What color should my socks be?”
- Alvin, Greenhills

A: Shades of brown, grey or navy will all work. A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that wearing jeans automatically meant white athletic socks. If you’re wearing sneakers or rubber shoes, yes. Leather shoes, NO.

Watch Your Watch

Q: “Is there a rule about whether your leather watch should also match your shoes?”
- Melvin, Mandaluyong

A: Strictly speaking, they don’t have to; although, for dressier occasions I personally think it just looks a little bit more put together if all your leather accessories (belt, shoes and watch) matched.

If you have either black or dark brown leather watches, I think there’s really not much to fuss about. These two colors go with pretty much anything. However, leather watches with colored straps (like blue, mustard, etc.), work better with casual clothes, where color pairing and matching aren’t as critical.
