Just by you saying this you are now on a list and can expect to be disappeared.You know who else likes long socks? Isis. You wanna be like Isis? Go ahead.
What are you riding? (horses?)I've got one pair of socks that goes to my knees. Special socks for winter riding - and I need them when it's below 8 C or so. I hate cold legs and feet.
With the exception of riding, I go all summer (4 or 5 months) without wearing any socks, just sandals. I'm glad weddings and funerals are more casual than they were a couple of decades ago. Or maybe I just don't care as much.
