Socks 'not optional' with suits

A recent piece by the Financial Times highlighted the trend for wearing no socks with a suit, with most commentators deeming it inappropriate and impractical.

"Wearing no socks with a suit? That's just wrong - well, at work anyhow," Michael Gregory, a City analyst, told the news provider.

So when is it ok to ditch your socks?

Most style-savvy men would agree that wearing no socks with loafers or deck shoes on a weekend when the sun is shining is fine. Beware, however - for if the weather is too warm, you may wish to revert back to socks or suffer from sweaty feet. A trainer sock could be the ideal solution here as they'll help keep your foot cool and fresh, but allow you to flash some ankle.

But if you really can't cope with the idea of flashing plain black socks under your suit, why not opt for a brighter, more summery sock in a striped or argyle pattern?
