Also check out fxh brand loafer socks. Also known as "socks".

I would describe them as pretty much no show. I can't imagine going any lower than that.

 

PoP - you are wering yours with jeans, so it isn't as though you can see very much ankle. I would wear what you are wearing. But, what happens when you are wearing shorts?

Syzy, firstly you're an animal for wearing no socks at all ;p  

I have bought from rebel sports and the vans shop (converse and vans brands). At $10 ea its worth grabbing a pair or two to try out. 

Might have to look into those Muji ones though...

Thanks for these Fxh. I will make sure I get a pair, so when I am next out with Dame Edna, I won't feel out of place. Chardonnay!

Bernie Banton, I think I will just settle with Rebel or Vans. It will mean leaving the house, which I am afraid to do.

Joking.

Rebel and Converse tends to pill after 10 washes. For $10 a pair, that is probably pretty reasonable. And Nabil buys stuff from his travels to SEA, so forget Muji, we can't get them here. It is like people that recommend Uniqlo for when you are next in Japan - it is very annoying.

Re HATS
Anyway - as I was saying - I was at a funeral in a hot provincial city the other day and I counted around 20 men out of around 70 or so blokes, at the graveside service, wearing hats. A majority of these were sporting either white or coffee or dun coloured Panama types. ( I say type as I think they varied a lot from "real" Panamas) the rest were similar colours and materials but more stingy brimmed. The wider brims looked better.

I came to the conclusion that , certainly in this context, the Panamas were well accepted, looked appropriate and are probably an emerging sensible trend.*

Out of 70 - 100 blokes around 30% wore suits and ties. About 2% wore proper shoes. Only about 15% wore dark suits. Only about 5% wore dark ties and white shirts. There were some in shorts, sandals, no socks and short sleeved shirts. And everything in between.

* and surprisingly worked OK in this context - outside funeral hot sun - with dark formal wear. Probably because they are clearly very practical rather than fashion ironic..

The vans are actually superior, going well for (I think) 3 summers now

edit: but the cons have held up well and are comfy. I hate annoying shit so would've tossed them if they sucked...

You can leave your hat on! rimshot.gif

With no show socks it's a bit hit and miss finding the right size that is both "no-show" and doesn't slip down. I bought a five pack from moccsocks and they've worked out very well.

Disgraceful that people think they can show up looking like they're just dropping in to a funeral on their way to the beach. Paying your respects indeed...

Melbourne guys, I'm staying a St Kilda tonight & tomorrow, looking for a decent venue to eat/have a few quiet drinks tonight without paying a fortune for taxis. Friendly atmosphere would be great too as I'm flying solo tonight

TIA,
Rob

Actually the last time I wore a felt hat with a suit was on a hot summer's day at an outdoor funeral. Glad I had it too, even though I probably looked like Johnny Cash.

Agreed 100%. 

 

When my grandmother passed away, I flew up to Bundaberg for her funeral. Would have been half a dozen of us in a suit, out of the 100+ attendees. 

 

I get that Bundy is the land of rum and coke, sugar cane and unemployment benefits, but my god. 

 

A Hawaiian shirt, shorts and VB thongs doesn't say I'm sorry for your loss.

Cut me some slack, guv. I just moved here from Singapore less than half a year ago, and I bought them while I still lived there.

 

Yes, you can't get them here - but it doesn't negate it as an option. It's not as if no one here has a passport and doesn't travel once in a while.

Try them. I have purchased many different invisible socks and wasn't happy . But the topman ones are really good. I even wear them with drivers and don’t show a thing.
