Short-suits slammed over sock concerns
There has not been a massive take-up of shorts-suits for men and one reporter has explained that many are concerned about what to do with their socks if they go for the new look.

Shorts-suits are what they sound like, a smart business suit matched with shorts rather than trousers and it has left many blokes perplexed as to what legwear is appropriate to the style.

Journalist Robert Colvile bared his knees, strengthened his resolve and donned one of the outfits for a stroll around London, reporting to the Daily Telegraph that it was a difficult assignment.

He admitted that many men have expressed concern.

"Most of the men I talk to focus on the thorny issue of the socks - should they be knee-length, pulled up, or simply absent?"

However, women are more concerned at the prospect of men baring their legs at all, Mr Colvile added.

The Independent scathed that even at their best, British men do not have the best fashion sense but that the warmer weather can make their taste "particularly frightening".
