Jim Kukral receives his fair share of banter for wearing white socks with his Mandals. He even wrote a song about them. Now I’m not opposed to white socks with brown shoes, but I am absolutely appalled to see anyone wear black socks with brown shoes (black socks with shoes of any other color than black is bad news). So when I saw Jim at a conference in Boston earlier this week wearing black socks with his mandals, I seriously thought I was going to vomit. Ok, maybe the cheap vodka had an effect on me as well. But after seeing that, I’m adding an addendum to my perfect guy specifications.
