If people wish to look like idiots that is their business.

The no-show look is cool for me with shorts or athletic clothes, but I admit to finding it a bit off putting in more formal clothing, like the picture of Chris Pine. So when the guy sits and the pants hike up, a few inches of his hairy legs are going to be sticking out the bottom? Not attractive. Mind you, Pine's a Hollywood actor and therefore has probably removed all of his body hair, so maybe that's not an issue for him. lol

I don't wear socks with a lot of my shoes, they just aren't made to be worn with socks. In the winter I'll sometimes wear tights, but no way am I doing that in the summer.

The point of sock is to catch the sweat and skin oils on fabric that is easily washed instead of letting it soak into the shoe leather.

Once upon a time I wore a pair of tennis shoes without socks for a few months. I had to throw them away; I could not get the stench out. I have always worn socks after that.

His coat's too small. See how it puckers at the button?

I'm a woman and I don't wear socks or peds (except with tennis shoes). And my shoes don't stink.

Which has nothing to do with the discussion.

I had a similar experience and is probably the reason for my peeve about men not wearing socks. Others can also smell that stench.=http://images.theage.com.au/2014/11/...=1415163624275

It's gross to not wear socks with shoes, unless its flip-flops.

Unless the guy is wearing shorts with sandals I don't like the "no socks" look. Just my opinion!
