DUSTING OFF THE SUSPENDERS!

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, I am DUSTING OFF THE SUSPENDERS, airing the SPARKLY SHORTS, tightening the GREEN SATIN BRASSIERE, sewing up the toe-hole in the BLACK FISHNET STOCKINGS and polishing my BLACK BIKER BOOTS.

Yes I am off to THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW tomorrow night and DRESSING UP is obligatory.

I just hope that when I arrive at our local THEATRE’S LIVE SCREENING, I am not the only one looking like a third rate member of the cast!

SOCKS & SHORTS!

SOCKS & SHORTS! What, I hear you cry my dear ladies and occasional gentleman are you talking about?

I am talking about  MEN wearing SOCKS with SHORTS!

This used to be a look the older gentleman favoured but I am sorry to have to inform you that even young men are now sporting this look.

I recently had the misfortune to espy a young man who had adopted a heavy metal/rock look with his long black hair and black rocker band t-shirt.  As this rebel without a cause pushed his baby-stroller past me I was able to view what completed  his ensemble.

A pair of long mid-calf SHORTS with about 10 centimetres of hairy leg before the black SOCKS!

WHY?

This is not a good look!

I will admit that the occasional dapper senior gentleman, wearing smartly pressed linen shorts, can get away with a white knee-length sock, even better if held up by a suspender.

So I appeal to you occasional gentleman.

IF IT’S WARM ENOUGH TO WEAR SHORTS, IT’S WARM ENOUGH NOT TO WEAR SOCKS!

 

Yours Sockily
