Your favourite colour of socks - Page 3

post #31 of 42
White. I don't really wear suits. Though right now I'm at work wearing khakis, black casual-ish shoes, and white socks. Should I expect to run into a hitman in the near future?

Who the hell looks at the socks people wear? Obviously a man with a foot fetish aye Pinkie?

I voted Grey, because it's a nice color in between black and white. I wear short white socks generally though, the ones that go only up to the ankles.

You gotta be kidding gloco! Nah, it was just that someone commented on my socks, in the show your feet competition, as if they were peculiar... I am just gauging if my choice of sock is, indeed, a bit odd.

Black because they're neutral like white (and hence can match with pretty much anything) yet work with formal attire (unlike white socks) and you never have to worry about soiling them (white socks have a tendency to turn brown or black as they are stained with dirt over time). Black is where it's at baby!

Matching; some days it's a finish as well as a start.

I'm a big fan of the unmatched socks... a white ankle sock and a grey kneee sock is one of my favorite routines

If you're wearing a black suit with black shoes it would only make sense to also wear black socks, particularly if you are wearing a white shirt and dark tie. You could try to match the color of your tie or shirt, but I don't think most men are quite that color coordinated, and some of y'all are color blind which makes things even more difficult.

You didn't really give the option to choose multiple colors so I went with black since I wear black slacks more often than other color. I will generally match my socks to my slacks, but will sometimes match my shirt.

I prefer white, only cause they stand out next to my dark skin. I have worn grey on one and white on the other though, but that was due to lack of clean socks.

When you are young and nice looking, you can make this kind of fashion statement successfully. People think "That's different, but I like it! He must be a real individual and a character!" However, when you get old enough, and especially if you have a face made for radio, and try the mismatched sock routine, especially with shorts and folks are pretty sure you don't have both oars in the water and treat you accordingly.

I usually prefer white and Black socks as they goes with all most every shoe and every dress and I make sure buy them from Wholesale Socks Suppliers.
