Fashion: Hosiery: Socks
see-thru socks   (+5, -4)  [vote for, against]
mens socks for female sensibilities

men like to keep their feet warm but women think that a man wearing nothing but his socks looks well frankly ridiculous and so I propose see-thru socks to solve this problem. I have found a material that may suffice. It is used in butterfly netting which seems quite apt: soft, sturdy and see though. These socks would also go quite nicely with sandals. The average UK man I am afraid to say is well-known for this fashion deviation.

//These socks would also go quite nicely with sandals.

I'm going to have to vote against this for the merest mention of wearing socks and sandals together.

well all I got was butterfly nets....what did you type? don't answer that. The idea, Peter, was more around the house-casual-wear than job interviews.

less is more - applies to links too apparently, Peter.

[po] Isn't it possible that the gentlemen you've known simply gave you nothing more to think about than what they looked like wearing nothing but socks?

I think I just peaked, philosophically speaking.
