To me, going sockless in warm weather makes it look like you're trying too hard, because it's incredibly obvious that you're sacrificing practicality for fashion. When you do go sockless, though, loafer socks are a good way to keep your shoes from smelling badly after a while.
Thanks for the thoughtful response. Loafer socks are a very good alternative to going sockless.

Sure, here are two pictures showing people dressed for cold weather (sweater and coat) wearing shoes with no socks. Granted these aren't boat shoes, they are still shoes with no socks. This picture might not be sub-freezing but cold enough for a sweater and jacket:
This person in this picture is wearing a heavy toggle coat which implies it is very cold outside, yet he is not wearing socks.
As I stated earlier, I know these two examples are not wearing boat shoes but it is the same idea in my mind. Why did you even bother posting here? You are no help to me, or anyone else who might possibly have the same thoughts about my original question.

If there is an obvious answer on this forum, and you are an experienced SF user, why not help out the community and provide me with either a simple answer, or a link to where I could find the answer?

What is the last thread you started that helped someone? I think the point of this forum is to help encourage people to have a better sense of style. If a 'noob' comes into this forum asking question because he doesn't know the answer, why not help him out instead of posting useless information? IF you don't know the answer, which I assume you don't, you should not be posting. Are you trying to get your post count up so you seem more knowledgable? I don't see why else you would post something that has absolutely no relevance what so ever. Because of this, you sir, are a 'noob'. You should learn to use the forums and understand the dynamic of public forums before putting anyone down, especially someone who is a 'noob' to this forum.
