Dear Boy I Passed On the Sidewalk After Work Today,

There is no excuse for wearing white socks with a dark suit. I can only think of one situation in which it is acceptable to wear white socks with a dark suit, and that is if it is HALLOWEEN and you are dressed as one of the BLUES BROTHERS. But as it is May and you were wearing a blue shirt and I didn't see E-L-W-O-O-D written across your fingers, I am assuming this is not the case.

If you do not have any dark-colored socks that match, you should wear two different colors of dark-colored socks. If you do not have any clean dark-colored socks, you should wear dirty dark-colored socks, or perhaps dirty dark-colored socks turned inside-out. If you have no clean OR dirty dark-colored socks, you should borrow some from a friend. If you do not have any clean or dirty dark-colored socks OR any friends, then where are you going all dressed up? And why did you buy a suit but no dark-colored socks to go with it? To quote my favorite fashion designer, I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

I believe the dangers of white socks are best illustrated by a girl we both passed who said to her friend, with great pity in her voice, "Oh... that poor boy is wearing white socks." Evoking pity from your female peers is probably not the route you want to take. White socks never won fair lady, Boy I Passed On the Sidewalk After Work Today.

Don't worry. When he gets to be an old man, he'll wear dark socks all the time, especially with light-colored shorts.

I feel the same about dark socks. I can't even wear socks with a small white background and so many other colors that you can't even SEE the white with dark shoes. Men should be more in love with socks and wear fun ones, like women do. Or like the bad guy in The Great Muppet Caper.

But here's a question for you:

Would you rather see him in white socks or NO socks???

Did you hear the new H & M store is opening in AA today. Isn't that your favorite store that you mentioned a few times?
