In an underground car park at Melbourne Town Hall, Melbourne Fashion Week delivered a cutting edge menswear showcase that could have taken place in Milan or Paris.
Fashion is “a despot whom the wise ridicule and obey”, according to Ambrose Bierce. We think we’ll stick with ridicule in this case.
But we’re right behind the change in sock policy at the Melbourne Cup. No, not for the horses, for the fashion-conscious male in The Birdcage (haunt of the glitterati). Yes, you can now go sockless!
Your go-to choice this year should be the loafer,and preferably in suede. Not only are they designed to be worn sans socks but they add a rakish touch to the formality of your suit.
