post #26836 of 55926
Went to Harrolds in Sydney, and there isn't too much that i want to buy.

Maybe a belt from Stefano Corsini for $85-100. Never heard of them.

Valentino ties are around $85 down from $175. Anyone have any thoughts on the quality of Valentino ties?

Sock liners! Don't talk to me about sock liners.

They either show - looks like you are wearing nanna's stocking socks - or you get "roll down".

I have a Valentino tie. Design and colour is great. Quality...well its not 7-fold hand-stitched tie but it does the job.

Maybe cheaper online anyway

The Italians are all over this. Fratelli Rosetti have been making loafers for decades with terry towelling lining, especially designed to be worn without socks.

I wear loafers (and boat shoes and canvas sneakers) with no socks if I am wearing jeans, shorts or very casual trousers (eg chinos). I like that photo of Ethan above.

I never wear lace up/dress shoes without socks.

I never go sockless with a suit or with tailored trousers.....to me it looks (and I hope I am not offending anyone here) more than a little creepy.

I concur, with the caveat that I never actually go sockless, just a sockless look with loafer or other invisible socks. And I'd personally probably confine it to shorts and very casual pants, not jeans.

Unlike a previous response I do find there is in fact practical benefit on hot days with long pants, where the cooling affect of air on your ankles is surprising.

I assumed when people say 'no socks' they were talking about 'invisible socks' (http://www.surfstitch.com/product/converse-invisible-sock-black)

Wear them often and are really good.

Burnso, can you reccomend anywhere else I can get 'ankle socks' that can be worn with loafers and sneakers? The ones that are quite short, but are durable and snug?

 

Rob, thanks for the heads up re: AT. They look great, they are made by the same people that invented the pizza, let's just say that I am quite convinced.

If you come across a Muji, somewhere, they make great loafer socks. Ethan recommends them over the loafer socks they used to stock at The Armoury.

Practical & comfortable in the heat.

Only surpassed by the cooling effect on everyone else's opinion of how it looks.

The Muji ones are comfortable, don't roll down - but they aren't completely "no-show":-
