Contact one of the admins and make the request. Given the popularity of this thread, I think it makes perfect sense.

My wife hates when I use socks with sandals and insists that it's the biggest faux pax a person can make. What's the big deal? I like sandals and sometimes socks are more comfortable.

Sandles are very casual and socks are not. Similar to wearing a knit tie with a Polo shirt.

So if I wear socks with little bicycles, or peppers on them it's OK?

I spent my college years in Birkenstocks and socks. Socks don't really work as well with Chacos though.

if comfort = style then sweatpants, track suits, snuggies, and sandals with socks would all be fashionable. but that's not how it works.

I will wear my sandals! I will wear them with pride! I will wear them with pants, sans socks! I will wear them with shorts, and sometimes I might use socks! I will use them in the winter with neoprene socks!

I will proudly stand out as a fashion reject. I don't have to care, I'm married and I don't want anything on the side

^ Interestingly, Aaron bears a striking resemblance to the guy in this picture. Can you believe it?

I think I'd have to be on the lookout for a new mrs. Italuminium if I start rocking Birckies with socks with bikes on them. Strange, she thinks bikes with low bars and no fenders are "scary" and "silly". Halfgrant.

The ones she finds silliest are the Richard Sachs socks (no, I don't do kit, I just like them) and the socks with high wheelers.

Faux pas = false step,

That's pretty subtle!


Anyway, I think the real issue is wearing sandles with BVD's on platform pedals. We shouldn't lose sight of that.
