Tip Our Hats: Guys That Wear Argyle Socks

The argyle sock is a a bold fashion choice with immense payoff potential. If done well, it can transform an average guy from ho-hum to hot stud. Guys, when you flash that diamond pattern as you flex your foxy ankle, it makes us do a double-take and flip our shades all Dwayne-Wayne style. And, there is something about the kind of guy who wears argyle socks that makes us sit up and take notice. He probably:
  • has a library card
  • can enjoy movies with subtitles in them
  • has neat penmanship
  • smells clean like the woods
  • calls their grandmother at least once a week just to say hi
  • can sew a button onto a shirt, if need be
  • returns calls in a timely manner
  • had a zine in high school and/or a blog now
  • has created at least one piece of artwork on his bedroom walls
  • knows how to drive stick shift cars
  • never kisses and tells
  • will make you dinner on your third date
  • wears v-neck sweaters
  • listens to rap music while he does housework
  • appreciates a good scotch
  • has a cool brother
  • has smoked a cigar and/or a pipe at some point
  • owns a shoe shine kit
  • likes British sit-coms
For all of you argyle sock wearers, we tip our hats to you. Just so you know, you are basically wearing foot lingerie.

I just gave a boy three pairs of brightly colored argyle socks. Totally melted my heart that he was excited for them. Argyle socks and shawl-collar cardigans always make me melt. What can I say? I'm looking for my own Mr. Rogers.

All but 4 of the above characteristics match my husband exactly - no zines or blogs in high school in the 50's, nor rap music then. His brother isn't cool - but everything else on the list fits. I made him 12 pairs of argyles when he was in Korea, and we're still talking about them since they were great. Trying to find a pattern - or a kit - please help. Ann B.
