I think this is from Ralph's since shutdown Rugby line:
As a look I agree that it looks unfinished without socks, but it brings back memories of guys hurrying out of the locker room taking all available shortcuts including no socks and untied ties, hoping to not be caught by monitors and given demerits for dress code infractions. These things did not really save much time. I am convinced it was a game.I agree with drpeter's assessment; if you are going to wear a summer suit or a blazer/sport coat with a tie, take the time to pull on a pair of socks It will improve one's appearance and save your shoes from the dreaded "stink foot" condition. Just saying......
Agreed, today's pic was in the camp of Ralph-crazy ensembles, but with a lot of individual elements that are nice.Looking at those rigs from the perspective of individual components, the university striped shirt, both ties and the sweater and sweater vest are all very nice and I would wear any of them in a New York micro-second, except, perhaps for the Tennis Sweater...I've just never cared for that sweater design. However, truth be known, I cringe at the remaining components and the overall visual effect of those rigs.
One of Ralph's much better efforts. There is even what appears to be a genuine expression on the guy's face. The single recommendation I would offer is take that model in to see a good barber!
The individual garments are fine, each and every one of them. However the deployment of those garments leaves much to be desired. Young man, if you are going to wear that rig, wear it right!
Huh?The individual garments are fine, each and every one of them. However the deployment of those garments leaves much to be desired.
