First the Wall Street Journal made a fuss over butts, now they're going after socks!
Writer Darrell Hartman thinks the fellas should go sans socks for the summer and spends an entire article arguing his case.
He starts by listing notable men in history who dared to go bare like Ernest Hemingway, Sir Roger Moore and Josh Hartnett.
Hartman also interviewed stylist Michael Macko, who said not wearing socks is "a little act of rebellion". But for the men that won't dare to go bare, there's an alternative solution to get the sockless look: the low-cut invisible sock.
Is your mind blown yet!?
The best part of the entire article are the captions because they're both ridiculous and HIGHlarious:
CHILLED-OUT WEEKEND | Match I-couldn't-care-less shorts and skater sneaks with socks? Lame. Without socks? Studly.
SUMMER PARTY | Traditional seersucker, a little ankle and white bucks is a dashing dressed-up look.
OUT ON THE TOWN | Traditional slippers, a bare foot and trim Nantucket reds: pure Spanish fly
BUSINESS CASUAL | Let all the guys at the office know you're cool on the weekends with a dress-sockless oxford.
We'd love to know his opinion on guys who wear socks with sandals!
