I wear shorts a fair amount and have looked for ways of improving the look. SF seems to advocate a loafer sockless look, and also the wearing of pants and dress shoes sockless. I frequently survey the population when I am out and about, and out of 500+ men in shorts, none have been in loafers. It looks simply wrong to me. Similarly pictures of men in slacks and leather shoes sin socks is an affront to nature , IMO. I think what bothers me is that this is a distinctly female style. Women are always wearing nice leather shoes without socks, and it looks great. So why this push to feminize mens fashion? Your thoughts?
