I know this picture was taken in colder weather...BUT I feel like it can apply to the current hot weather we are having here in Boston. Who needs socks when the weather is so hot out? I can answer that...no one! If you think it's gross...try it one time and see if it's not the most refreshing feeling. Another detail to notice for men...if you don't already have a tote bag...GET ONE! It looks very good in the summer. Try a color blocking tote that is half leather half tote like this one. Try a neon colored one...since it's the new trend. Get creative with your totes!
