Yeah I had completely forgotten about that previous thread and the discussion about Thom Browne's '60s inspiration. The only reason why I posted this in the first place was because I saw the picture of Johnny Cash while looking through the booklet that comes in the album, so naturally I looked at how he was dressed and saw that his trousers were very slim and sock was clearly showing.
I also don't like the idea of wearing dress shoes (or any shoes for that matter) without socks, but I have worn dress shoes with black ankle socks in the past and I like the look. Maybe I just have sexier ankles and calfs than you guys.
