    Everyday is international men's day. We've done everything that makes Western civilization the most advanced civilization ever.

    You are wrong.

    I don't own any shoes with laces, what should happen?
    We had this problem one year with Lord Ignacio Smitherington Fotherington-Forbes-Smythe jr. and I would give you the same advise I gave him -

    Simply wear an extra long trouser. You'll hopefully find this will successfully cover up your footwear and you should get away with it.

    I don't think there is a club in London that would admit me, ticket or no ticket, wearing the Italian style of trouser I am afraid.

    And I only have a double barrelled surname so that reduces my chances even further old sock.

    In that case, I suggest we go in under my name, and you sit on my shoulders. We wear a previously purchased oversized coat which covers both of us, and pretend to be a very tall, slightly strangely shaped person. I have confidence that this will in no way arouse suspicion.

    You would have to make an effort to speak in a deeper voice though. I suggest you smoke some woodbines just before the event.

    Excellent, you've got the greatcoat and I've got the swimmers shoulders.

    I'm about 5 ft 10, I suspect that you are at least that height. Nothing to arouse suspicion there at all.

    Make sure your socks are of a good length if you are not brown like me. Flashing a mismatched white or a black ankle would be more than awkward.

    Thanks for all this, it's really saved me buying shoelaces.

    A pleasure, madam. I am 6'2", so our combined height would only be 12 feet. As soon as we're sitting down, no one will think anything of it, assuming we choose a low chair.

    I have good sturdy socks like you might expect a gentleman to have. Suitable to walking through the countryside with a stick while smoking a pipe, only to occasionally stop and ponder the intellectual connotations of my surroundings.

    As far as shoelaces go - we do actually have gift bags at the event which contain shoelaces, along with a monocle and some "Shaggy rub" pipe tobacco.

    See you there! And good hunting.
