    Boat shoes for the first fit, and slightly longer shorts. On the second fit, the first shoes --might-- work. And please, never use long white socks with shorts nor walking shoes!!

    Thanks.
    1) You don't like my $1200/pair shorts?

    2) Will try boat shoes, but honestly in California I've only seen it a few times, and never loafers.

    3) at least half the people here wear white socks with shorts, maybe a regional thing, with people associating shorts with tennis. But I am here to learn.

    Yes. Fasion is a great thing, but it doesn't control who I am. If its hot out I will wear cargo shorts and go on with my life

    Many have tried, most have given up long ago. Cisco is marketing firewalls that specifically filter all my images, brought the company up from near bankruptcy

    It could be worse, my new girlfriend says she needs to do my colors.

    Not a matter of price. They look too short for your long torso, which looks even longer since you're wearing them very low.

    Try them, or loafers if you're too concerned with "no boat shoes if not boating" mentality.

    Well, the walking/tennis shoes with longish socks looks more like a retired community thing, even worse if you wear them with that kind of outfit. You should try at least ankle socks.

    Do you guys think I can wear these with shorts? If so, what kind. Would pants go better? [​IMG] Either way, I'll be wearing them without socks. So according to few, they will start to reek in about a week.

    I love shorts. I'd wear those ^ w/ shorts. They're like the 23yr old LL Bean camp mocs I have, which I wear w/ shorts and w/o socks. I haven't had much of a problem w/ them smelling. Maybe if I wore them for several days in a row.

    I think they may go nice with a white trouser.

    No respectable mob boss wears shorts, and I am respectable.

    Sports only.
