    I've been known to wear AE Strandmok 2.0's in gray suede (with the white vibram sole) with loafer ("no-show") socks. But I've not gone sockless in anything other than shower shoes for a very long time.....

    Once upon a time pique golf shirts were relatively loosely knitted. The airflow that weave permitted, plus the resulting bumpy texture like seersucker lifting the cloth off of the skin, made them cool to wear, and as a side benefit fairly stretchy. In my teens I worked at a private golf club and our Tommy Hilfiger shirts were loose enough to stick a toothpick in without damage. For whatever reason pique weaves tightened up, perhaps because people started wearing them for more indoor-based or business activities. I find they're much denser and thus heavier nowadays (and I had my old work golf shirts in the back of a drawer until a couple years ago to compare).

    I don't love how these look or feel.

    I'm with you on this one. I like just about any other type of polo but I really don't care for piqué cotton polo shirts.

    Too each their own. It's just not a style I care for.

    I get that you're really proud of your sock collection but can't it be a special moment, instead of on full display at all times?
    That's been going on for almost 10 years now and I still think it looks dumb as hell.

    I still wonder why guys are wearing what I used to call "floods" whenever I see short pants...
