    for some reason the socks are a bit distracting. definitely dig the red soles, however.

    Love love love the fit; however, the wash of the jeans and the ankle socks lost me. The perfect christmas gift for this gent would be some no-show socks from foot locker. Yes, that was bitchy I know. Jorge from WPB

    i think the socks are great. and the trouser-like cuffs on the jeans…this could have been a total disaster and he pulled it off great. here is proof that style is less about what you're wearing and more about how you wear it.

    People complain about the socks… but he is just going for comfort and hygiene! Bravo Mr Ricci: that is good sense for once!

    When would fashion people understand that those shoes without socks will only make your feet sweat, swell and smell??!!!!

    I like the width of the neck of the shirt, the buttons of the opened fists(handles) and the handkerchief(scarf) of the jacket.
    It(He,She) should put on a few "PINKIS", in Spain there are called this way a few cacetines that only cover the foot and are not seen over the shoe, for the summer they are fantastic.

    I wonder how much time He thought about the socks.. should I? shouldn't I? I personaly wish I chose to wear socks today because my feet kill and smell all at the same time. Mr. Ricci is a smarter man than I.

    I LOVE that he is wearing the little socks! It says that he doesn't want blisters and smelly feet. Why are people so bothered by seeing socks on men? Do you really like to look at their ankles that much?

    but I wanted brown shoes, you know, in an ideal world.

    He needs to score some trouser socks from Banana Republic, no ones sees them peeking out of your shoes.

    I'm not liking the light coloured jeans, nor the cuff on them. Great watch, jacket and shoes.

    I have to say that I find it hard to ever find a good reason for the 'socks that don't look like I am wearing socks', socks. If you see what I mean.

    Great jacket, shirt and haircut. But the socks are a catastrophe. Reminds of my running socks.

    i like this very much: the colors, slightly shrunken cuts, and crisp fit.
    but please, no socks! questionably unsanitary, but i think, a bit classier.

    So glad he's wearing socks. When men do not wear socks under their leather loafers, I cringe at what's happening between the leather.

    And yes, love his hair & self-respect evident in his presentation!

    The socks kill it for me. That's all I see.

    And it is possible to pull of socks without making them visible. Lower cut socks would have been hidden under the oxfords.


    July 23, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    how gorgeous. love those shoes.
    great one.

    Beautifully tailored db jacket, can never go wrong with blue and white. Miss the mark on the socks and a leather strapped watch would add a dash of color/interest. Nothing beats a well worn pair of white bucks in the summer!

    What a coincidence! I just wrote about brogues on my blog! The open neckline, light washed denim, and cream colored shoes are light and summery. Everything is crisp and clean and it's far from oppressive. There have been some comments about his socks, but he pulls it off rather nicely. Great look!

    I have the same shoes (Brimarts)… Got them thrown-in free (honest !) when buying 2 rather expensive pairs for my wife in southern Italy couple of months ago… And I wear them with similar, but lower cut socks… which probably officialy makes me cool :-)

    Great jacket, shirt and haircut. But the socks are a catastrophe and the blue of his jean is too light

  69. Casper

    Personally, I'm not much for the socks, but going without socks wouldn’t be especially comfortable. My suggestion would be to wear a pair of really thin cotton sock in a very light blue matching the colour of the jeans.

    I love the socks. You have to be a very selfconfidence gentleman to wear that kind of socks. The evidence is almost no one here likes them, despite the smart and confortable they are.

    I don't know about Italians being the best dressed on the Planet as the socks might challenge that notion as a master narrative.

    However, I wonder why he didn't consider a thin, summer weight sock if he felt that he needed to have socks on at all.

    Normally I'm against the sock movement but here for some reason just works. So does the light trouser. Maybe it's the angle at which he's sitting.

    To everyone who thinks that if they see no socks, that we are not wearing socks: Some do actually "go sockless" but there are something called peds, to protect your shoes and keep you looking ahead of the curve. No need to get so sticky about it.

    As with belts socks are difficult waters to navigate.
    Hence the popularity of no-sock look during this tight line and high water hems. This man's choice makes the socks look like underwear riding up than the accessory they could have been.
