    Sunday Challenge - 2/1/2015 - Sock it to me!

    We all love to wear boots (due to the season) or drivers, loafers, etc. without any socks; so it seems to me no one is giving any love to the sock game. I want to see some of your best shoe, sock and pant combos! Make 'em crazy, bright, argyle, whatever! Let's get some GREAT participation this week and rock out this challenge!

    The usual rules apply:

    - Challenge proposed on Tuesday or early Wednesday
    - Rules solidified throughout the week
    - On Sunday or before, all participants dress according to challenge guidelines
    - Entries recorded Sunday night, voting begins
    - Winner declared on Tuesday evening
    - Winner is responsible for next week's theme

    Thanks!

    -Dino

      I'm in if I can get a good picture. This time of year it is usually dark when I leave and dark when I get home from work.

        You just need a pic of pants leg, sock, and shoe. You could do it after putting a shoe on before you leave the house.

          Ok, leave it to the newb to start this I see.

          Wore this today while out and about:

          added a second pic with the rest of the outfit since I apparently took the challenge too literally

            Typically we show the whole outfit for these things.

              OUCH on the newb comment...

              I am sorry if I gave you guys something out of the norm. I am a big sock fan and I wanted to see what others were doing.

                  Although socks are an underwear and I have no intention of displaying them outside of this challenge, it would be interesting to see who wins and why you guys voted for who.

                    I actually think it's a great challenge theme, but then I'm someone who enjoys wearing socks that are a little loud. It's typical that we show the whole outfit, but if anyone wants to put in an entry with just the shoe/sock/pants combo visible, feel free. We'll let the voters sort out whose challenge entry was best, using whatever criteria they want.

                      Here's my entry. I hadn't intended to use this, but I looked down and was feeling my shoe/sock/pants combo, so I'm going with it. Unless I change my mind and update my entry later in the week.

                        Vintage Hanovers from ebay, great patina that doesn't really show in the phone pic.

                          Decided that it was cold enough to break out the cabin socks today.

                              I was referring to myself as the newb, not you. I like your pick of challenges.
