My girlfriend and I went to Greenhills this past weekend for some attempted bargain shopping. I wasn't really expecting to get anything though because I've accepted long ago that there are no menswear items to be had in those tiangge stalls. It's all about the ladies more often than not, but then I chanced upon this hosiery stall which surprised me with some fine quirky striped socks that they sold.
I've been looking for striped socks for a minute now but haven't had any such luck in my frequent trips to my go-to stores. Of all places, it was in a random stall in Greenhills where I finally got my fill. It was quite a struggle to pick which one I liked best, however. They had a green and navy combination. There was a gray and white number. But what I liked best was the red and navy coupling which put my two favorite hues together.
If anything, it'll give my plain office outfits some much needed punch and playfulness. My new socks come timely too as my boss just sort of scolded me about my sockless ways. These'll give him a run for his money. Paired with my Weejuns and my chocolate brown Swear oxfords, I can still make a statement while keeping with the supposed and somewhat dated company dress code. (Still won't stop sockless-ing completely though!)
Some more striped sock convincing from GQ!
