    I'm going to our local country club for a Father's Day barbeque. This is casual but in reality the shorts worn are fairly dressy.

    My family won't let me wear gym shoes and white socks. I have tried loafers with no socks and torn up my feet. Flip flops aren't aceptable. What do I wear?

    PS, I told my wife that I was going to wear black knee socks and black shoes. [​IMG] She says I am going alone then.

    I second that. This picture is the best I could find right now, and may not be the best depictation of what I have in mind, but does a fairly good job of illustrating it:

    Shorts are to be avoided at all costs.
