Good on you, Captain Bike! I always had clips. They would hang on a hook in the hallway, along with mittens, scarves and hats. But in the last 20-30 years I too tucked my pants into my socks. Then along came Don Johnson, not wearing socks, which is why they put those pant guards on low end bike chainwheels. If you rode a "real" bike, you were expected to wear shorts (or tights in the winter).
