    Novelty items
    Long or shrt
    Wool or Cotton
    None except with sandals

    I swear, I read this thread as "Let's talk about sex, hoes.. who need 'em"

    I need glasses...

    Without 'socks' your feet will sweat = not cool... depends on the shoe.. gym shoes, short/sport socks (with just a tiny bit of sock visible)

    Formal shoes = formal socks (usually black or grey) socks... think comfy...

    Sandals? who the fook wears those? nah... if you do.. no socks, lest you look like a sad nerd.

    Gray wool crew socks for those cold mornings. Or in the mountains.

    Cotton ankle socks for coolish days. Worn in the house or out with real shoes. Never sandals.

    My socks are already out. There were a couple of cold mornings last month, one of which
    I had to stay outside from 4:30 am to get my Visa renewed at Promenada. Dug out the scarfs, thermals, and socks for the event.

    Some Kiwi don't wear socks (or shoes) I've even seen my fellow Kiwi punters in shopping malls/banks... barefoot.

    Not dissing them mind.. just passing observation... ok ok.. I'm dissing them...

    And here comes a lady with an enchanting little kangaroo
    And Im going to ask her something about shirts
    No, Im not because shes given me a rather a vulgar sign


    Would you excuse me, would you mind, were talking about shirts?
    Huh? About shirts, shirts? Yes, the problem of shirts
    The kind of, um, you know, are they necessary? Shirts
    Where it is, where it is, yes, where is shirts?

    Um, oh dear, theres a gentleman marching down here with
    A very determined stride, he looks a little cautious, hes hopping
    Excuse me, sir, would you mind talking to me for a moment at all?
    Uh, uh, what do you mean, guvnor? What do you want to know?
    Well, were talking about shirts, about are they still necessary?
    Do you think? I mean, do you think they should
    They stop making shirts? Oh, no, not at all, a mans not Dr
    Not dressed unless hes got a nice shirt on, governor, is he?
    Not really, I suppose, what about the lengths of the shirt?
    Because the old ones used to be very long
    Well, Im more for the short shirt, the old types old-fashioned, mate
    Gotta be a bit modern these days, governor, aint yer? Yes
    Well, youre certain with it, anyway?
    Well, youve got to be with it, of course. Its, uh
    Yes, right, okay, well, thank you very much

    Puma white cotton tennis socks, little different coloured ones with hearts, scottie dogs, owls etc.

    And i have some of those socks with rubber bits on the bottom so you don't slip on wooden floors.

    It's 20 degrees here today, so i am airing my feet. Later i shall put socks on to go down the pub.

    I think my mum bought them in Marks and Spencers, and they do have man sizes too. My brother wears them.

    Slipper socks. Toddlers wear them too, usually on their hands too!!
