    Yes, yes!
    I love how Italians are so easygoing.
    (I don't know if this is the right word, but I hope you know what I mean.)
    I like the slim pants!

      This is the kind of cut I personally find much more superior to the well-loved Thom Browne look.

    Dear Sart – the American Apparel ads on your site are so indescribably awful that they are completely undermining your site. However much they are paying you, is it really worth this kind of ugliness and tackiness being on your site?

    Please listen to your long-time devoted fans here, of which I am one, and get rid of these crummy ads.

    You have a fabulous site – there must be other advertisers you can use. Try Google or Clickbank or Chitika. They are all reputable and will probably pay you better.

    you can still wear the look of a 'sockless shoe', just buy those short socks that only cover over your toes and half your ankle…nobody would ever know..
    This is what i would call a 'beautiful man', someone who can pull off the right choice of colours, shapes and even the facial expression. I wonder what he does for a living?

    Love him!! What a handsome man and love the fact that he is not wearing socks with those shoes like so many North Americans would be.

    Wish I could get a suit like that in the US. Slim pants, but high waistline. It seems like the slim cut pants I've found tend to sit really low.

    Naturally and casually chic. There's a "I do'nt care about what am wearing" vibe … the absence of socks is the clue for this resort touch … Lovely.

    @ all the "low socks" believers: no no no! In Italy we suffer the "huckleberry finn"'s syndrome: we love to be the first ones to take off the socks, and the last ones to put them on…the secret is talcum powder! Loafers without socks is a must, like a shirt without a tee-shirt! skin-on-skin, always!

    This is my idea of perfect. I would prefer socks and no little tassles but I will not quibble as otherwise he is stunning.

    @ all the anonymous against the sockless shoes: I'm afraid you don't understand….a good pair of well done shoes, with LEATHER sole, let the feet breathe. If you add talcum powder, it's done! And the feeling is incredible!
