    Seeing a lot of this army-type green lately and loving it – especially when the fabric is cut so well, like the suit Mr. Cortina is rocking.

    I think that a suit without socks is a sin, regardless of age, gender, style etc. It looks cheap, try hard and undermines any sense of style the subject actually has. This is a case in point – the guy clearly has style, but has let himself down, no end. (and yes, his feet will smell of cheese and his partner will not be pleased)

    Great style, but why this trend of no socks? It just makes it look like his pants aren't long enough. Great photo though

    I agree. The no sock thing has run it's course and similarly, once that is over, men can start wearing decent length pants again since they won't need to be broadcasting to the world that they aren't be wearing socks.

    This can't end soon enough for me.

    Is it a trick of the tailoring, I wonder, or does he actually have such (proportionately) long legs? Whichever it is, the shape, and length, of his trousers is very attractive.

    Interesting how destabilized so many people are by the absence of socks. I have a colleague who feels the same way about apostrophes.


    October 21, 2010 at 4:31 am

    great style


    October 21, 2010 at 4:40 am

    Somehow – it doesn't do it for me. My reaction would be different for an Italian guy wearing the same thing in Milan.

    Men's shoes have to get a whole lot more interesting to pull this thing off. This "look" is only halfway there. (and I hope it never gets there.)

    I think we've reached the tipping point here: With apologies to this guy in the photo, but "no socks" has become too much of a contrivance. Strange how such a simple thing for men can set off such debate — and that's exactly the reason not to go sockless. The debate is getting tired. The contrivance looks tired. Let's head to the sock drawer and move on.

    I am also continuing to go sockless this fall, and will continue into the winter until I can't bear it anymore. I am happy to report that I continue to see alot of other guys still doing it here in NYC. (I will admit though, it's even less comfortable in the cooler weather…kind of cold and clammy…).

    In the Caribbean – no socks has always been fashionable – Europe is just catching on.

    He might be wearing a pair of these tiny, invisible socks, though. Either way he looks so attractive – and I adore his Facial expression along with those spectacles;-)

    Love the color of the suit.

    The open buckles and kind of half turned-up jacket collar give a cool edge to the look.

    He's a stylist right, so it's all probably well thought over..

    Please stop this "put some socks on" nonsense… you may dislike the look, but the "stinky feet" part is rubbish!!!

    BTW I think he looks great. The shape and color of his glasses and the way the collar of his jacket is up but nicely folded.

    Fashion seems to always follow once the masses make a style fashionable it plays itself out.
    The whole "sans" sock thing and it's "Deliberate Nonchalance" is now passe………….NEXT.
    However GC who is a creative seems to always get it right…even if the monk strap unstrapped is a bit pretentious….but I digress…..

    So chic it is! Today in NYC the temperature is 39 degrees, and I can't believe it, but I am wearing my wingtips with no socks. Saw lots of other guys flasing ankle as well, so I'm not alone. I will keep this up until I can't bear it anymore.
