Cool!

Now can I have a matching Fedora and fingerless gloves?

Unless you wear a shoe larger than a 12. Even Hanes took three inches out of their "big & tall" athletic sock.

D'oh - I finally found a 13+ sock last year and bought a dozen pair.  I guess I'm SOL this year.

Those belts look fabulous!
 
2014-06-18 02:58:33 PM  
I will note for the record that TFA, while having pictures of brightly colored belts, contains no pictures of actual men wearing them.

I think there is a reason for that.

Does that make me a hipster with my basic black belt and gray or black woolen socks?

I have trouble enough figuring out how to dress myself (per my wife) to start adding other things I have to be cognisant of.

I'd wear a red leather belt.  It would hide the bloodstains from beating other people's ill mannered children
 
2014-06-18 03:17:20 PM  
Sweet! Those will go great with the suit shorts I just bought!
 
2014-06-18 03:18:38 PM  
I disagree.

Yummies?

Sounds like the 80's are coming back around again.

Yeah, Time magazine referred to Yuppies as Yumpies.

/I tried to maintain the label but instead of sounding intelligent, I sounded confused and illiterate.
/which pretty much describes a reader of Time magazine
/I was five years old

young, urban males (Yummies)


If you're calling dudes Yummies -- you're probably the target shopper for pastel-colored belts for men.

In related news, most men now let their wives or gay friends pick out their clothes.

John Wayne would never wear this shiat and therefore neither will I.

I havn't bought my own clothes in 15 years. If it is bright and loud, I make the wife take it back.

I let my wife buy my clothes so I'm getting a kick out of this thread.

So it's hip to dress like a golfer now?

/ No, it is not.
 
2014-06-18 04:44:23 PM  
Never having to buy my own clothes again is one of the reasons I'm getting married, but you go and enjoy your time at the mall subby.

White socks.
Tighty-whities.
T-shirt.
Blue jeans.
Brown boots.
Brown belt.
Carhartt or Columbia jacket.
Beanie.
Till the day I die.

/Now that's style.

I agree.  That was an unexpected perk to marriage that never crossed my mind while single.

If, before she takes it out of the bag, she says, "now keep an open mind," I wet my veto stamp.

Rope belts are coming back?  Yuck.

I have one pair of socks that contains color.  They are only worn when the Steelers are in the Super Bowl.
 
2014-06-18 07:49:08 PM  
Sorry, no. Bright socks and colorful belts are being worn only by men who let their boyfriends buy their clothes.
 
2014-06-18 09:42:14 PM  
Sorry, no. When I watched the U.S. Open last Sunday, there was a golfer wearing bright orange pants and shirt. But even he had a white belt to match his white shoes.

I've been buying colorful ladies socks because most men's socks are too large for my feet even when they say otherwise.

"Colorful belts, my dear. And not a moment too soon."  (to paraphrase)

So apparently there's a "crazy socks" trend. I will stick to white, thanks.

And I will continue to only wear a belt to hold my pants up (and that only because I lost weight and my shorts don't fit).

/trends in clothing are fine, but they have always and will continue to pass me by largely unnoticed. I'm clueless like that.

I cant find socks or shoes that comfortably fit without buying online. Size 14 is a blessing and a curse.

The article is bs. Only hipsters and the gays are wearing belts like that.

The UNLIKELY tag must be tied up in the closet.

Socks? White unles I am dressed for a wedding or funeral.

Belt? Leather, and brown or black when wearing pants. Exceptions can be made if you got your belt from an activity that involved kicking or throwing people, and you are wearingt he outfit you practice that in.
