I wear my sunglasses at night because the sun never sets on being badass.

do you guys sleep in stiff jeans, button-downs, and blazers?
I'll admit most of my flights aren't 10+ hours, but I have no problem with a 6 hour flight in clothing a man can wear in public without being ridiculed. If your regular clothing is so uncomfortable then that's probably because it doesn't fit properly, not because of any inherent uncomfortability in those items you mention.

How To Help Prevent DVT
http://www.tellmehowto.net/howto/help_prevent_dvt_4099Second, consider wearing flight socks to help aid circulation of the blood during the flight. Ensure that any shoes that you may have on are not too tight as this can make circulation a little harder. Consider taking shoes off.
BTW on long distance sleeper buses, that have bunks not seats, they make you take your shoes off when boarding the bus and provide disposable paper slippers on request.
I've seen this a few times. It's almost always giant fat people with poor circulation who require that they take their shoes off. Of course, since they are giant whales their feet stink to high heaven. I've been successful in moving to an empty seat the few times I've been stuck next to one. I fear the day I'm on a booked flight and some leviathan decides to free up his toesies on a long flight. You might see me on the news that day.
