Summer Wrap Up.

As we bid farewell to the summer of twenty eleven, we invite you to take a look back at the season’s top 5 blog posts.

5. The Sockless Revolution


“If you’re going to attempt it with a suit, make sure the shoes are loafers or monk straps, these shoes allow you to easily pull of a sockless look. I wouldn’t do lace-ups. In the summer days of great hot weather, wear your vans, chucks, stan smiths, tods, and sperrys, sockless. In regards to casual attire, going sockless with footwear I just mentioned completes the causal look. I believe in the sockless revolution.”

4. Clay Matthews, Cam Newton, & Other Athletes Sport Astor & Black Suits at the 2011 ESPYs.

"Several athletes attending the ESPYS last night at the NOKIA Theatre in Los Angeles turned heads on the red carpet in Astor & Black. Brothers Casey and Clay Matthews of the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers respectively, ESPY nominee Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers, ESPY winner Desean Jackson of the Phildelphia Eagles, Matt Hasselbeck of the Seattle Seahawks, Michael Conley Jr. of the Memphis Grizzlies, Dhani Jones of the Cincinnati Bengals, and Mark Ingram of the New Orleans Saints all sported (pun intended) A&B as they mixed and mingled with other athletes and celebs alike."

    The sockless look has been going on in the south since the penny loafer. Riddle me this. What color of socks do you wear with a seersucker suit? Trick question, you NEVER wear socks with a seersucker suit.
