Subject: BS: Baby-blue socks: A fashion statement?
From: Peace
Date: 05 Oct 08 - 01:48 AM

I received a pair for my birthday a while back from a really good friend. However, I haven't worn them yet because I need to know: ARE they passe? Do they scream fashion? Is it OK to wear them with sandals and a brown suit? These are important questions that I hope people can help with. Serious responses only, please.

If anyone asks you just smile and say you're wearing them
a) for charity,

b) they were white but this pair got in with your jeans as you did the laundry,

c) it was dark when you got dressed and you didn't want to put the light on and disturb your dear wife

or d) because a very dear friend gave them to you and you want to keep his memory alive.

To anyone who mentions the colour, you should explain, very earnestly and at far too great a length, that you wear them to increase your psychic sensibility, since the blue stimulates the base chakras, improving your empathy with your fellow human beings.
Then tell them to push off, you'll wear what you like and it's no concern of anyone else. Threats of violence could be added for dramatic effect, if the situation is suitable (the person is smaller than you, for example).
Cheers,
Dave, habitual wearer of red socks.

I don't think any colour socks look OK with sandals, unless you're also wearing brightly coloured Bermudas, a shirt buttoned up to the kneck and a handkerchief knotted around your head. Which suggests post-modern irony.
But they'll be fine with a blue suit, a black suit, a pin-stripe suit, a linen suit ... in fact, I'm sure with your entire wardrobe.

Me, I try to never judge anyone by their socks.

Buy some underwear the same color. If anyone insults your socks, rip off the rest of your clothing, don your fireman's chapeau and sing 'YMCA' as loudly as possible.

Seriously, blue is for boys and shouldn't be too much of a problem a problem. It's a good thing your friend didn't send pink paisley socks.

Lots of good advice here, Peace. I'll add that if one has gift-giving friends who are also colour blind, one should gently suggest to them that you only accept gifts purchased at the local hardware store. This will greatly reduce the chances of your ending up in purple plaid trousers.

Alwways keep in mind, of course, that any form of dress is acceptable, so long as it doesn't frighten the horses.

I am appreciative of all the excellent advice that people have given me. I should add that these are no ordinary socks. They are 100% cotton except for the 12% Spandex--but the cotton that IS there is 100%. They say right on the package that they will keep one's feet odor-free for a day. That's right, 24 hours. SO, no Axe will be necessary. In fact, these socks are as expensive as my sandals that cost $8.00. So, I don't want to be doing anything that would be considered gauche. Any and all suggestions are very much welcomed. Thank you.

At the end of this thread I will tell y'all who sent the socks.

Light blue would indicate the other Manchester team!
To broaden the topic, I wonder why the majority of men wear such dull colours.
When I look for a style icon, a man that I regard as a snappy dresser, is Henry the Eighth.
I wear red, I'm in emerald green today, royal blue is good. I choose clothes to be seen- yet they are so hard to find. I'm talking about outer garments here- shirts, jackets. Coloured underwear is even harder to find.
You go into as clothes shop, the womenswear is green, blue, red, fuschia- lots of colour.
Step across to menswear- you're into the black and white film era.
Black, camouflage brown, grey, beige.
If anybody asks me the reason for wearing bright colours I will ask,
"What colour is a mouse?"
-"Sort of greyish brown"
"What colour is a tiger?"
-"Orange and black"
"Which one are you dressed as?"
In the natural world, most animal species show that the male is the more showy.
Wear your blue socks with pride- let them take your feet along the road to your natural pride of place as a colourful male.
Remember, you are a tiger, not a mouse. You don't need to hide.
Cheers
Dave
P.S. I put down my success at interviews partly to the fact that I have attended in a red jacket. They remember you!

I remember wearing pastel socks in the '60s. Whatever color your shirt was, that was your sock color. Baby blue, yellow, mint green, pink. I had a drawerful of 'em.

Now I only have black socks and white socks. I'd wear baby blue ones if someone gave me a pair, but only with boots and jeans so nobody'd see 'em.

Darowyn, in ages past YOU would have led the search for a new world, ridden a rocket to locate Captain Kirk. I salute your valour in the face of public ridicule. I shall wear my new sock with pride. What colours actually GO with baby-blue? BWL's reference to pastel: are they flowers? I must needs know.

Your friend really likes you. Sky blue is the color of the sky, and it symbolizes freedom and forever. It's like a big smiley-face for your feet, only less yellow and more blue. Actually, no yellow at all because then the socks would be green because blue and yellow make green, and that would be a good color if it were happy spring green or a quiet, cool forest green and not what-the-hell-did-he-eat cat-barf green, which you don't want on your feet because it would look like you stepped in cat barf (only it would have to be a really big cat to get it on the tops of your feet and up your legs, like maybe a giant radioactive space cat or something). Your friend should give you some pink socks. Nothing that comes out of a cat is pink. At least not unless the cat has a very bad accident. Good thing your friend didn't send brown socks.

Could you not have another colour pair inside and the red pair outside Mr Red? It would halve the number required...

Or buy a whole heap of white ones, wash them on hot with the rest of your clothes and see what happens? After all, pink is really only a pale red...
