HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3495  

post #52411 of 78717

Ah, Pingson, bless your lovely shoes and socks.

 

 

PB, I have indeed stood on a subway platform in NY in the summer, and London for many summers too.  I'm not sure how bare feet in shoes would really aid in that scenario.

 

Anyway, I appreciate that I'm swimming against the current tide here (and I daren't go to Georgia at all), but I won't have it. :)

Well, I am not talking about bare feet. I'm talking about bare ankles. No show socks all of the way, and it does make a difference.

If you happen to be walking from your car to your yacht across a hot car park, and slip your boat shoes onto your bare feet for two minutes, the exception is valid.  But, generally, if you're not on the beach or a boat, then you're just being a wanker. And if you're wearing a suit, then a double wanker with bells on. :)

Nankles doesn't seem offensive enough to be a pejorative.

 

I know it's not everyone's cup of tea (if we're using English colloquialisms such as the oddly harsh "wanker") but in the preppy environs of my home town, I'm not at all out of place. I got more attention for wearing a pocket square today than I did for the glimpse of bare ankle. I guess the focus on my ankles here suggests that I didn't have a major squarefail, which I will take as a win. Thanks for the thumbs everyone.

Pink windowpane? Pink windowpane!

^Far worse than ankles for sure.

I remember growing up my father told me that rich people don't wear socks. I never understood what he was talking about.

I personally like the entire outfit. Looks pretty relaxed.

 

But I do agree that sockless loafers are wrong... only because I can't pull them off. :-)

 

I did order some "invisible" socks from Mes Chaussettes that will be arriving for me to try out. Maybe I'll find a combo that suits me. On a Sunday where we're sitting outside on a patio, drinking mimosas and shooting the shit, I'd opt for the invisible socks where I can let some air get to my ankles to cool me down without sweating all over my shoes.

 

Edit: Invisible socks = No Show.

I can see that.  Sitting on the deck, boat, beach...linens or chinos, polo shirt perhaps, or at least no jacket no tie.  And invisible socks.  Fine (although watch the mosquitoes...they dig ankles...)

 

It's this current trend of wearing formal wear with slippers and no socks that really turns my stomach.

You're saying that I shouldn't be sockless in my opera pumps, either? confused.gif

Are you kidding me? I like this a lot, MonkeyFace! Don't tell me this is the one you got from SuitSupply as you said in the SuitSupply thread? mwink[1].gif

I go by the rule: 'if it has laces don't go sockless'

 

The exception to this rule being boat shoes.they are intended to be worn sockless.

Cheers! Yep, got the suit for €75 this morning! It's a nice linen fabric, so I thought I'd wear it today, seen as the weather is actually nice here for once.

Are those your kids?

Is that an Oxxford jacket/blazer?
