no socks, thanks

There is something quite naughty in the idea of a man not wearing socks. Even in this age and time of anything-goes and widespread laissez-faire, the sight of a naked ankle is commonly considered a tad wild, not exactly appropriate. Fact is, the codes of men’s dressing are so narrow, very little is allowed to shake the game a bit. And nothing shakes the game, let’s admit it, as a hint, just a little hint, of flesh. The subtler, the better: if flashing the chest out and loud is probably too much, the ankle, safe down there from intruding gazes, sounds like a much more viable option. –Angelo Flaccavento, Italian Writer, Curator
