I just finished watching the series ROME from HBO (excellent). The term was a verb applied to slaves, but times have changed. Of course, castrato are not all that common anymore either (San Francisco city employees have gelding as one of their paid medical benefits).

And music is the worse for it.

They need to offer a return policy.

the picture posted in the first page just killed me. A blazer with shorts!?!!?! Anyways, I am a strong supporter of going sockless, especially in driving mocs. I own three pairs of these http://www.colehaan.com/colehaan/cat...CS_003=4386239. I wear them almost daily with khaki pants, a brown suit, or shorts.

Something I very rarely do--only with boat shoes.

May be okay in certain hot weather situations, but that's about it.

At least that's my $.02.

If you talk about leather dress shoes and about men wearing them, I dislike the look.
I do like going sockless when it comes to sneakers and loafers.

I wear my socks over my shoes. When I wear loafers I put on two pairs of socks.

khaki shorts or madras with black beef roll loafers, sockless, used to be a standard look. check out Take Ivy. and call off the gender police.

Similarly pictures of men in slacks and leather shoes sin socks is an affront to nature , IMO. I think what bothers me is that this is a distinctly female style. Women are always wearing nice leather shoes without socks, and it looks great. So why this push to feminize mens fashion? Your thoughts?

Haven't you posted pics of yourself in a cape before?

Yes, this is a look that goes back many decades. There are many pics of JFK and others sporting this look in the 50's and earlier.
