Colourful socks now a gentleman’s ‘accessory’, says Country Life

Men’s socks are now officially an accessory thanks to the “uprising” of colourful designs being worn, Country Life has declared two years after branding lilac socks ungentlemanly.

    Is that sock with a penis on it being worn by (not) my prime minister?

  • simus1

    Such breaking news will encourage our prime sockminister to go full
    Lord Foppington.
    I fear we have many dark days ahead in fashion faux pas.

      Still, it’s nice to be able to identify them so easily.

    Yes now all men can look like a down town Toronto faggot, like little justin.

    For more variety from the tiresome penguin suits, how about a nice Harris tweed?

    I only have black socks. That way they can get mixed up in the wash and it doesn’t matter.

    Meaningless tripe of a story from Country Life. No doubt a nod to Trudeau. You wont bring World Peace with selfies and socks, Mr PM. The Emperor has no clothes, I say.

    • ontario john

      That is the colonial thinking that Justin warns us about. You must attend the homosexual parade in Toronto as punishment.

    I remember Country Life as a child, how far it has fallen. Country folks are generally not attention whores.

    This thread up to now has just made my morning. Thank you all. Your logic and common sense is like a breath of fresh air. God, I love this place. My faith in the long term survival of humanity is restored every time I visit.

    Country Life? Sounds kind of nationalist.

    I’m waiting for Justine to come out with a man bob.

    Years ago it was believed that socks like those were worn only by beta males. They desperatly wanted to be more than a low level peon. The socks gave them the feeling of being a rebel at work but without the risk of actually wearing a cartoon tie. There were whole books on the subject written in the 90’s.

      They are the new badge of the Metrosexuals, and we all know that a Metrosexual is nothing more than a Homosexual too afraid to come out of the closet.
