The eternal question: I have socks of various quality, colours and designs. Which should I wear to the office?
The answer, of course is: That’s the most stupid question we’ve ever heard. The answer is black, and get out of our sight.
However, because we are gentlemen and care about our customers, we shall explain further. There are many different kinds of socks on the market, and not all of them are suitable for the world of office work.
Novelty socks with logos, slogans and cartoon characters have their place, and that place is burning on a large bonfire in the car park. If you want to be taken seriously in the world of business, novelty socks are as dangerous to your reputation as the novelty tie. You might as well turn up for work wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan “I’m a git.”
Coloured socks may be acceptable in some circumstances, particularly if your workplace takes part in the dangerous blasphemy of Dress Down Friday, which frequently becomes little more than a ‘who’s got the most expensive wardrobe’ competition. Coloured socks may serve as a distraction, and your boss may even be a student of colour psychology and marked you down as a dangerous radical because you once wore a pair of red socks to work.
The one no-risk style to choose is the black cotton socks. We admit that they have the whiff of conformity about them, but they set the wearer up as a serious individual who works hard and doesn’t put cling film over the toilet seat in the executive washroom. They’ve installed CCTV cameras there, you know.
