It’s always the deep, profound questions that seem to have the greatest impact on our life. Why are we here? Where did we come from? Why does man take up arms against fellow man, rather than investing their energy into the betterment of all humankind?
Well, I’ve been pondering a question of my own that I think you’ll agree is along these lines. When you’re wearing dark jeans and casual shoes, what type of socks are you supposed to wear? This is a question that’s been plaguing me for years. Of course, when you’re standing up/walking, it’s no biggie, because your jeans come down over the tops of your shoes (and if they don’t, maybe it’s time you met Stacey and Clinton). But when you’re sitting down, or relaxing with your legs stretched out in front of you – well, it’s entirely a different story.
I figure that it can’t be those little ankle high socks, because you don’t want people seeing your bare legs under long pants. So that leaves me generally wearing “mid-rise” sports socks, because they seem appropriate for the type of shoe. But what colour? Black sports socks don’t seem right to me, but then again, white socks look terrible under dark jeans.
So, what’s the story? Am I breaking sock etiquette here without knowing it?
