What constitutes bland socks?


#1

I was livid when Erin said I had bland socks yesterday.

Bland, my arse.

Bland request

Show us the socks in question.


#4

They’re in the washing bin at home.

I’m wearing blood relatives of them now.


#5

please, over your feet, nothing else saps


#6

sounds like i want to see you naked bar these socks now


#7

Well… get them out!

Yesterday’s had maybe more, some grey and some pink. Same pattern.


#10

OH! They’re amazing. Erin is obviously insane.


#11

Fixed this for you


#12

I think it’s because they’re not dayglo or featuring a cartoon character.


#13

And thank you.


#14

Maybe she said band socks

They look like nice brown socks with a sweatband round them


#15

Haha, you are most welcome!


#16

They’re not bland! They have a nice geometric pattern.

For years I used to solely* wear black socks with no pattern. However (a) they were surprisingly difficult to pair and (b) I discovered the joy of coloured and patterned socks :slight_smile:


#17

Difficult to pair?

Mate, the best thing about plain black socks if that it doesn’t matter how you pair them. They all go together!


#18

Sell out.

re: pairing all you do is when you need to buy a couple of pairs of new socks, just get rid of the lot and buy, what, a dozen new pairs of the same black ones. Pairing problems - gone.

Nothing but pure, hard black socks for me. Nothing. Even annoyed that these latest ones have ‘Pringle’ on the side tbf.


#19

I’ve slowly got rid of all my plain socks.

Life’s too short to be wearing socks that don’t give me joy.

There are many things I could call that sock but bland is not one of them
