I was just wearing red recycled yarn beauty & youth socks to lunch with a couple of close friends. Now I've always been the guy in the office to wear fun socks daily e.g. argyles, bright colors, stripes, polka dots etc. Never been called out before. In fact just had a quick 20 mins meeting with the region's VP today. He didn't say anything about my socks either. However during lunch, my close buddy commented on how my socks are "unprofessional". Is he right? I work in accounting, he's in corp finance, we both work in Singapore where office style is either really boring and ill-fitted or too tight and metrosexual. And nobody wears "fun" socks.
