Nagging JM

I had the strangest dream last night. I dreamt I was JM's personal assistant, and apparently my job consisted of me advising him what to wear. We had the following altercation:

GAMIILA: "What you're going to wear? You woke me up to ask me that? Wear what you bloody well please!"

(JM mutters something unintelligible, goes away and comes back a minute later in his ubiquitous T-shirt, jeans and trainers)

GAMIILA: "That's what you've chosen to wear? Please tell me you brought the kilt! And wear some Docs with it this time!"

(JM changes into the kilt, and promptly falls down the stairs).

*joins crusade and steals every pair of those old man black socks he owns.*

Sigh, from the ankles down, he dresses like my dad...who is within two years of cashing in on his pension...GRRRRRR

Your dad's in the White Trainers Brigade as well? Or is it the black socks you find objectionable? But...black socks (or dark blue ones) are the only colour permissible for any man dressing according to the rules! The socks must be a little higher though, so that if their trousers should ride up, they don't flash a bit of naked hairy leg. White or light colour socks spell sartorial suicide...

snirk.

The socks must be a little higher though, so that if their trousers should ride up, they don't flash a bit of naked hairy leg.

i believe that also means that trousers are too short. come on, JM must have a 32" inseam at most. there's no excuse for buying a 28x30...ever, unless you're as little as seth green. there must be a break in the trouser leg. must, must, must. no excuse for naked hairy leg. no excuse for seeing socks to know that they're black.

& i'm all about crazy socks...within reason. (like DB & those wacky stripy ones from that one picture.)

what gets me is that JM owns socks...but owns no underoos. that just squicks me royally.

Stripy is one thing, Homer is another. It's as someone is saying, 'hey, I'm wacky!' without making the effort.

Hmm....doesn't that also depend on the cut and type of trousers, on occasion? But on the whole, you're right when you say there's "no excuse for naked hairy leg. no excuse for seeing socks to know that they're black."

Crazy socks, within reason: yes. Whimsical is good. Disney is uninspired and just plain bad, bad, bad.

owns socks...but owns no underoos.
I suppose that is a bit iffy...and icky to boot. Best not think about it, eh?

Actually the dad (and JM) are the white trainers WITH black socks brigade.

*shudders*

I know, this isn't a hard and fast thing, but if you are, say, going for a run and you have your trainers on and are wearing a pair of shorts, you usually wear WHITE socks. Usually.

The rules don't change if you put a pair of jeans on and are still wearing the same pair of socks.

Probably me being fickle. It's a peeve. I can deal. And this could be a truly american thing with the white socks...oh well.

Oh no, it's global now. When I go through commuter hell in the morning, I encounter numerous men in white terrycloth socks...as well as a fair number of Tweetiebirds or Tasmanian Devils.

I guess I'm just old-fashioned: as far as I'm concerned, white socks are only permissable on a sportsfield, not off it. And Disney socks are a no-no in any given situation.

But occasionally, a man who otherwise adheres to the rules can be allowed to wear something a bit more whimsical, like the stripey socks you mention. Just so long as he doesn't make a habit of it.

And not changing your socks after changing out of your sporting outfit? Ewwww.

Sorry...all these messages are making me lose the plot. I realise now it wasn't you who made the comment about DB's stripey socks. So please forgive me if my earlier reply made you go "what is she on about?" -- still, the rest of it should be pertinent to what you said before...after a fashion, at least ;-)
