What is this socks crap that is being forced upon us?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  2. Right, you know those cotton or wool things that go on your feet?, the things that Mummy has embroidered your name, the days of the week and "Left" and "right" onto? :D
     
  3. I'm not sure either. I quite like the whole tie thing, but being a man who prefers sandals (or stilettos, in which case stockings) I find the whole sock thing a bit pointless.

    Maybe somebody else can help us?

    V!
     
  4. I don't see it being forced on anyone! Those people who want them part with cash for them; those who don't, don't! Very simple really, but why miss out on a chance to moan, eh, Biscuits...? :roll:
     
  5. Yep.

    Ties is one thing.

    But fu cking SOCKS?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!? 8O

  9. Vegetius/Biscuits_AB,

    People like socks. If you don't, then stop whinging. You appear to have no sense of humour. I imagine you either wear none or dull grey ones. You have a thing called choice. Use it and don't click on the No 4 Sock thread http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=19037/postdays=0/postorder=asc/start=50.htmland don't buy them. You are not being forced to do anything.

    You strike me as dull.

    Song, 6 words, the whole thing:

    You can leave your socks on!
     
  11. Haha, beat ya to it. I banged out a no. 4 thong a few weeks ago. Got bored of it though - cut me balls up something nasty...
     
  12. I am manifestly not dull. I am a novice cross-dresser, for Christ's sake.

    I just don't understand the need for No.4 pattern socks.

    Now, a fleecy ski-cap in No.4 hoops would be smashing. Why didn't you suggest that? It'd go lovely with my denim mini-skirt.

    V!
     
  13. They really need to be plain white or dark colour, knee high length, with the ARRSE no 4 stripe as the fold down bit at the top. Now that would go with a few things I think.

    i think it was the pink stripes that put the lads off, it wasn't "Rambo/Waltish" enough,

    might suit lawstudent tho :lol:
     
  15. Veg, I'm really starting to worry about you. Did you take your pills today?
