Trends: Bare Ankles, Rolled Up Cuffs

I'm quite sure you've seen it; men rolling up their cuffs and walking around with bare ankles. It seems socks no longer form part of many men's wardrobes, as Jacquie Myburgh-Chemaly noted in her Times column last week. The Sartorialist's blog is further evidence of this trend. The rolled-up cuff which, like many trends, was a faux pas a couple of years ago (trust me, I know. Many of my friends laugh at the fact that I don't wear socks with my formal shoes) is now in vogue and, as New York Times' Eric Wilson notes; "the rolled cuff look of 2009 appears to have become the rolled cuff epidemic of 2010".
