SOCK WATCH #5

I'd almost throw in the towel with Sock Watch due to Jake's, dare I say it, quite bloody boring choice of socks (who would have thought?) but then came this picture:
  • COLOUR: Nike
  • TYPE: Nike
  • HEIGHT: Nike
  • OVERALL STATUS: K-Fed! Oh no you din't!

Oh yeah, I did!I'm sure there is an explanation around here somewhere.

LMAO!! That's gotta be pretty darn uncomfortable...

But Jake - you're forgiven.

Anonymous said...

OMG!! Forgiven yes (always, for everything), forgotten no (how could you?)!

And are those shorts about to come off? ;)

phoebe said...

^^We wish, don't we!

And the socks? Why, Jake, why?!

The Bearded Lady said...

Oh dear,....and Miss Bearded Lady was about to eat her soft boiled egg too.

Nothing Really Matters said...

At least he kinda has a reason that he's just gotten off his bike. Clearly with dark shades, slipped on the wrong shoes!

zoo said...

What is the point of socks like this? Who sat there and thought: 'I know, I shall help all the disenfranchised who want to wear SOCKS WITH THEIR FLIP FLOPS (WTF?) but can't'?

Agnes said...

WTF this is not nice

Nothing Really Matters said...

Someone need to write to AGONY PUSSY Jake! I can always help!

It's just a temporary thing in Jake's case he's getting from bike clothes to street clothes or vice versa....I hope?
But K-fed...looks like a teutonic grape stomper of a wine which is best unimbibed.

britpopbaby said...

Yes, I'm sure it was just a temporary move whilst he located his proper attire. It's quite popular amongst English tourists though...

Kendra said...

Jake needs varying the colour range of his socks. White is boring.

Prophecy Girl said...

He really is not exhibiting good sock behavior here, that's for sure, although I agree it's surely temporary. Also, isn't this #6? Am I getting obsessive over my Sock Watches?

Smurfeyshmoo said...

You know, I'm getting deeply worried about all this time Jake's spending astride a bike. Doesn't it affect his, uh, tush? And other assorted areas? Clearly it's affecting his brain, making him dress like K Fed and we all know that is not allowed.

cina said...

LOL! So that's how I'd recognize a English tourist in Stockholm then? ;-)

Miffed: Clearly Brits is now delirious- it's either the socks or the tummy bug - how long 'til the soup gets there?

Cina: You get socks with seperate toes to wear with flip flops- but I've only ever seen elderly indian ladies wear them....

Jake: We love your visual humour, but enough already.

*prioritising the important things*.

^^LOL

cina said...

LOL! Those separate toes socks are quite cute actually!

gin said...

Again, I find Jacob to be the exception to the rule. While socks with flipflops have always been a wrong answer, on him, somehow, they don't look overly bad. To me, they only add to his dorky cuteness. Also, I have to say that I looove the low-riding shorts. Nice undies, Jake.
Even when dressed similarly, Jake belongs nowhere in the same vicinity as Kevin Federline who is a whole new class of trash in and of himself.

Jake, you are asking a lot of your fans. You're really counting on our tolerance & acceptance of you, no matter what you form of self-expression you choose, aren't you?

I speak, of course, of your clog-wearing .... and now socks with flip-flops.

My loyalty, though badly shaken, still holds on, though rather tenuously. I tell myself: If any man can carry off a look that Nice Anonymous recalls her pot-bellied, elderly uncles sporting during summer backyard Bar-B-Ques in the U.S. suburbs, and yet still manage to look sexy, it would be Jake.

Still, I feel that Jake's toeing a dangerous line here that tests all my liberal beliefs in tolerance & acceptance. He's really teetering between endearing geekiness & looking like a complete dork.

I TOTALLY AGREE. IN FACT JAKE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS IN THOSE NIKE SOCKS. HE TOOK OFF HIS SHOES FOR BIKING IN THE CAR, AND SLIPPED ON A PAIR OF FLIP FLOPS TO HEAD IN FOR A SHOWER.....UMMM. I LIKE THE TEMPORARY TRANSITION LOOK.

As far as an comparison to K-Fed, Jake looks zillion times better. K-Fed's flip flops are too dark a color and his pants land almost at the top line of the socks. Jake on the other hand has a light brown flip flop and his shorts end below his knees giving nice long view of lean legs that gentle into those soft white socks. I'm just saying..... he's looking good to me.

LOL!

jla said...

While I appreciate that Jake doesn't giva f*@k and chooses to express himself accordingly, this is just not a good look. It's evocative of trailer trash and if K-fed endorses the look it's obviously in bad taste!

miffed67 said...

And are those shorts about to come off?

One can only hope! They do look ready to fall down, tho, don't they?

I can't STAND wearing socks with flip flops or any sandles that separate your toes like that. What CAN he be thinking? That's SO uncomfortable! Thank goodness it was just a transitional thing.

Miffed: Clearly Brits is now delirious- it's either the socks or the tummy bug - how long 'til the soup gets there?

Arriving Heathrow airport momentarily. Will then be transferred to armored car for the trip to britpopbaby's bedside and spoonfed to her by our Jake lookalike robot operative. Full recovery expected.

britpopbaby said...

Ooo, I'm excited! I'll pretend to be more ill again.

miffed67 said...

Heh! He really doesn't, huh? I LOVE that sense of assurance in him, it's HELLA SEXY.

brit, honey....you really SHOULD be in bed....just to get the full effect, you understand?!?

winterbird said...

hahaha... socks with flip flops? maybe Jake is turning Brit! Except we wear them with sandals here. I don't know... if anyone can pull this off, it's Jake.

Anonymous said...

Look. I'm sure there are rules and guidelines here. This is a very respectable blog. And it's fun. I love to hang out here. But. Geez! How could you commit such a sacrilege! Comparing Jakey to K-Fed! But then, I realized...it's not your fault. I mean...if the shoe fits...

Jake, you silly boy, is your shirt tucked into your underwear?? :)

nica said...

oh lord save us =\

gummybug said...

OHNO! I can't believe this! I was browsing around for socks just yesterday and thought to myself "If Jake ever wears those cameltoe socks with the big toe mojo, I'm quitting him!"

To be true to self, or to be true to The Sex? That is the question.

wtbgirl said...

I can barely bring myself to comment on the flip-flop sock combo. *sigh* (shakes head). Maybe Jake got this attire idea from McBongo - I can DEFINTIELY see McBongo sporting the socks/flip-flop combination pack while drinking and baning on his drums.

AAAAAARRGGGHHH! Does Jake sit in bed at night and think about ugly shoe/sock combos?!? I think he does!
