Wincing Devil BS: Why do men wear socks with sandals (310* d) RE: BS: Why do men wear socks with sandals 15 Aug 02

When I portray an 18th/early 19th Century sailor, I wear a red knee hi sock on the left leg and a green sock on the right, in the tradition of Chesapeake Bay watermen (Port and Starboard socks, get it?). When I am doing a pirate, however, I reverse the colors, as pirates were known to reverse their running lights to confuse their prey. That way, you'll never know wheter I'm coming or going! (just like me!) I usually wear straight lasted shoes, but have been know to wear "Ghillies", a sandal like footwear implement popular amogst the Rennies.
