This is the season of the mankle
We have seen the mankini now this coming season is the age of the mankle.
The mankle or naked ankle, is the natural fashion progression from last season’s statement sock. Now, the socks are off and it is back to the fashion heyday of Sonny Crocket of Miami Vice .
No one can deny bare ankles go perfectly well with a pair of chinos and deck shoes, but half mast trousers with heavy brogues may be the limit. Not to mention swollen ankles which can heave unattractively over the sides of the shoe. Not a pretty site.
The mankle may have featured on the catwalks of New York and Paris but it is yet to be seen if real men will take up the challenge.
