We were in New York City earlier in the spring and I was deeply dismayed to see grown(ish) men actually wearing what appeared to be very nice suits with the pant legs cut very short to make for conspicuous high waters. I thought that shit only existed in magazines and maybe, at a stretch, Italy. It was all over midtown. What a world. I guess I’m old.

I think they do that to show off their socks. Soon enough they'll be cutting the arses out so you can see their fancy underwears.

We'd better hope that they wear underwear, then.

^^^ That's a gay thing here. Or like a sub-demographic of professional young gay men who are somewhere on the spectrum of art and commerce.

EDIT: I really don't get the no-sock thing.

Easier if their arses are hanging out.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

I've seen the no sock thing. Usually with loafers.

It's how I picture G these days

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

I spent most of the summer in shorts as it was 5,000,000,000 degrees most of the time. It was actually physically impossible to wear trousers. Against all medical advice.

I am a trouser man most of the time though. I started work - a new job - on Monday and have done one day in brown chinos and two in jeans (dark navy, regular fit, turned up a bit at the bottom). I usually just choose the trousers depending on what's going above them. I'm looking forward to the temperature dropping a bit so I can start with my favourite items of clothing, overshirts.
