Default Mixing whites with blacks...

We have recently engaged in some pretty weighty matters in this forum so I thought I could really blow the roof off this place with this taboo topic - do any of y'all wear white socks with black shoes? Seriously, I was in NYC last week and saw this abhorrent behavior everywhere. I mean WFT is this all about? Sorry for the rant.......

Us NYC folk set the pace. If we are doing it, it must be the cool and trendy thing to do. By the time the rest of the country catches on, the trend will be passe.

Back in the 80s I was living in NY. A guy was transferred to us from Macon Ga. He came in with a big grin and lifted his pant leg to reveal white socks with black shoes. He said that's how we do it in the south.

It looks to me that the south is a fashion leader

A most abyssmal attempt to stir up controversy. No doubt an effort to rub salt into already tender emotions, and pepper the rest with insensitivity. This is definitely debate baiting at its worst. Only a brazen southern gentleman like yourself, would dare to impune the the closet savy dwellers of this bastion of questionable behavior with suggestions of impropriety.

My question is merely a learned query regarding certain culture's sartorial norms.....I though that was clear in my post.

I have told my wife on many occasions, "If you ever see me wearing white socks and black shoes, just go ahead and kill me, because I have lost my mind." I feel the same way about those damn Crocs.

White socks shoved into black shoes sounds a lot less offensive than black socks shoved into white pumps, to me.

White socks with black shoes sneakers is fine
Black socks with black shoes and shortpants

Not a bad thing mind you but not fashionable!
