I feel that I'm not cool enough to wear sunglasses. I feel like a poseur with sunglasses on. I can't pull them off.
I feel similarly about low-cut socks.
What's the deal with low-cut socks? Are they like muscle shirts for calves?
Do they conceal sartorial shame, like a clip-on tie?
"You're wearing socks?!"
According to Wikipedia, "most sports require some sort of sock, usually a tube sock to protect one's legs from being scraped." Are low-cut socks advantageous in some way? Do they increase aerodynamics?
Or are they simply more comfortable? I dunno… You expose your Achilles tendons to slicing. Crew socks at least provide a sense of security, albeit a false one.
