Ah, true sign of a nerd: Making excuses to dress like a retard/slob.

"Wahh, my socks aren't absorbent enough!"
"Wahh, my dark socks are dirty!"
"Wahh, it was my only clean shirt!"
"Wahh, I don't care that I look like I raided the special ed laundry room!"

Do your laundry, go to the doctor for your excessive body excretion problems, and learn how to mesh properly into normal society, and THEN you can start whining about how you can't get girls. Got it?

I write damn as d@mn because I think it looks uber cool that way!!!

& fashion is important because it's a vain world. You are perceive by others by your appearance.
If I see you in some raggedy shirt & pants, then I'll give you a quarter for food or something.
If I see you with white socks & black pants, then I'll laugh at you.

At least he can change socks. You on the other hand can't change your face. For that I'll laugh at you.

How can anybody wear white socks with work attire? The days of socially retarded computer geeks tucked far away in a corner so as not to upset clientele is over. If you think you do not have to dress appropriate at work and only special occasions then I say that when you move out of your parents? basement and talk to a girl that you do not have to first give your credit card number too then you will understand.

All of this over socks - you people need to get a life. I've never seen people get so worked up of something so minuscule.

I've never owned a pair of black shoes or black pants, just brown shoes similar to this, and khaki pants with my nice white socks ;) I have no need for black socks, so I guess that's why I don't care what color socks you wear. Hell, if anything, I'd be blasting you for wearing highwaters that expose your socks. ;)

it wouldnt be a vain world if you werent here. you could have helped by not noticing someone's appearance or by keeping your fashion ideas to yourself.


you probably looked at the guy and instantly thought yourself better than him because he is wearing white socks.

so if you see me in a raggedy shirt and pants then you'll give me quarter, well i'll turn around and shove that quarter up your @ss ("uber cool")
what if i work a job that requires manual labor and getting dirty. your simple motto "You are perceived by others by your appearance" does not hold up. i could be a hard worker going home or something and you instantly judge them as poor and try to fulfill your ego by giving me a quarter and trying to proove yourself better than me.

i think i will wear black pants and white socks until i meet you so you will laugh at me and then we will se what happens.

Wow, and I thought there weren't any women on OT. . .

Wait, you are MEN talking about what is and isn't a "fashion faux pas?" Sad.

While I agree that it is pretty asthetically ugly and I would never do it because of my own social hangups...do you really care what your co-worker does? If he is happy with it...then who cares.
