What is Handsome?

Manuscript:
He straightened, and she noticed for the first time that he was in uniform—the soft blues complimented his eyes. The straight crisp lines contained order. And in his shiny black shoes, he was so handsome.

Critiquer:
I NEVER THOUGHT THAT SHINY BLACK SHOES MADE A MAN HANDSOME. PERHAPS I'LL GIVE MINE A BUFF.

Well, I'm going to make this clear.
Today, there is a tendency to dress down.
I've been to weddings where attendees are wearing jeans and t-shirts.
At graduations, students have been known to go nude under their robes...

So I say, YES. Polished shoes are handsome.
Care for how you look is handsome.
It doesn't matter how big your ears are...how far apart your eyes sit...or if you have a middle age pouch in front. If you care for how you look, you will appear confident and attractive.

The shoes matter.

And looking like Cary Grant doesn't hurt either. LOL
