I know I have a thing for them, but it surprises me how many younger guys don't seem to wear dress socks when dressed up. New Years Eve in a pretty nice restuarant and I look around and see everyone dressed up...not formal or even suits and ties, but dress pants and shoes and nice clothes. and i can't believe that I see at least 3 or 4 younger guys near me wearing ankle length black sweatsox! how many guys here wear over the calf sox with a suit or when dressed still? to me the ankle length is fine with shorts, but in dress pants it looked like crap. like jockstraps and some other things, are these going by the wayside too? I'll tell you..if a young guy comes in for an interview and he's not dressed right..like those ankle socks with dress pants...it DOES make a bad first impression...like he doesn't know the do's and don'ts of the business world.
