I have a question.

Why is it that when I'm looking at myself in my full length mirror wearing nothing, NOTHING, but white socks, I look okay. Seems reasonable.

However, when I do the same thing wearing nothing, NOTHING, but black socks, I look like a tramp?

Why? Am I sock racist? Because I don't think that's it.

It's Minnesota. "Fashion" does not enter into it.

skinink: To be fair, I'd rather see someone wear a sandals/socks combo than to look down at someones bare feet and see the grossest toenails. Some people really don't give a shiat about appearances.


This.

fark "style" when it's gone that far. Short socks would be ok with sandals, well, the strap over kind, not the between the toes flip flop kind.(unless you've got on short socks with individual toes).  Tube socks to the knee, no, you look retarded, those look retarded on anyone.  They're only meant for boots, which, if you're wearing boots, the rest of the sock should almost never be visible.

Feet are one of those things that unless you have a thing for them, are neutral at best(they never look "good"), and often just ugly bony sinewy things that really just shouldn't be in sight any more than a person's pubes that poke out or so stiff they poke through the clothes, nose hairs so long they're sun bleached at the tips, etc.

Sure, at the beach, lazing around the house, whatever, do it buck naked for all I care.  Sit naked and watch tv with your legs behind your ears and your anus exposed to the breeze from the fan.  No one cares.

You step out in public looking unshowered, off the scale of wierd/hipster, warts and all, and you're going to get looked at funny.  Ugly, fat cleavage on your hips, whatever the case.

People should be a bit considerate of others.  As long as you go far enough to try and be considerate, that's all that's really necessary.  Wear your socks, but don't wear them half up to your knee with the blue and yellow bands at the top.  It's as bad as wearing clown shoes or Napoleon Dynamite's snowboots with a tux or swimwear.  It's not offensive in and of itself, but it's a sure sign that you're mentally imbalanced and sets people on edge.

While normally I'm a fan of people outing themselves as retarded or creepy as a warning, I'm also a fan of my fantasy that humans are generally, more or less, capable and decent.

There are enough farked up individuals to judge by their actions, ie how the treat people, and how kind(or not) they are, that sort of thing.  No need for you to passively advertise how much of a socially detached nimrod you are, you do that you're not only making yourself look bad, you're making everyone around you look bad.

At least if someone's a jerk in public, his friends can actively try to moderate him, calm him down, let him know that's over the line.  If you're a terrible dresser, unless people meet you at your house(and tell you to go change), they can do nothing.  There's no defense against hanging out with someone with socks covering his calf's but to just hang your head in shame at even being associated with him.

You don't even have to be a good dresser, just don't cross the line into "bad".

Recently, the Row designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen wore matching black and gold Birkenstock sandals with pristine white socks while walking through an airport.

Do people still pay attention to what those shaved orangutans do? They now look either insane or on drugs.

Looks like someone still thinks they are important enough to document what they are wearing.

Everybody must now dress like the Olsen twins.

There's a way to put an immediate stop to this stuff.  When you see someone wearing this crap, mock the living fark out of them.  Follow them for blocks, pointing and laughing.  Throw food at them.  When they get to their care, whiz on the door handles.  Learn their home addresses and paper their neighborhood with posters mocking them.  Mock their children.  Drive them to the very edge of misery and suicide.

That'll put a stop to it.

In Europe, wearing socks and sandals points you out as an American tourist almost, but not quite, as fast as asking if you get fries with that crepe. Do what you want, accept the consequences.

You're so Minnesota.  Only argyle socks with individual toes are acceptable. Also, the sandals have to match your park ranger hat.

reprobate1125: John Buck 41: I guess if looking stupid is fashionable then yeah. I equate this to driving a convertible with the top down and the windows up. STUPIDSTUPIDSTUPID

Have you ever owned a convertible?  Especially one that doesn't have the baffles behind the rear seats?


Yes, a '68 Camaro. No idea about this baffles thing.

Denial is a subtle sign of aging subby. Grandpa still cant believe onions went out of style but it seems the younger folks will always make all kinds of ridiculous things stylish.
