Roman Fashion Meltdown™

BBC reports archaeological evidence of fashion crime:

Evidence for what, by modern standards, would be considered a lack of style has been uncovered at a major archaeological dig in south London, where a foot from a bronze statue appears to be adorned with both socks and sandals.

Great. Now that image will be stuck in my head every time I read Roman history, literature or philosophy for the rest of my life. Maybe Russell Crowe could pull it off but the rest of us mere mortals might be best advised to avoid the socks and sandals look. Fortunately, hi-tech fashion advice is available to the contemporary inhabitants of what was Roman Londinium.
