I almost never post what I am about to .... But...

YGTBSM right ??? You've been hired to operate an aircraft flying paying passengers and need help from an internet message board to pick out which socks to wear ???

Geez, and I thought the regionals board couldn't possibly get any more juvenile... Just have your mother lay out your uniform for you and pack your 20" TravelPro... You'll be just fine.. :uzi: Better yet, PM "FurloughedAgain" and he'll help you pick out a backpack... :D

Please tell me you're kidding. You probably are, but at this point I've just about seen it all... Try these, they go great with just about any airline's uniform...

I'm too indecisive. There was no Captain or Instructor Pilot around to tell me what to do, so I made the best decision I was able. Afterall, they kept telling me I was a Captain-in-Training.

So, I compromised on Boxer Briefs, all cotton...better for absorption I am told.

Some day I hope to become a politician too. What party should I belong too? Any help you guys can give would be appreciated.

Thanks.

All I know is that my socks stink at the end of the day. Why is that?

Maybe a nice pair of thigh high stockings would do the trick for those cold morning preflights.

H25B,
Lighten up. When I first posted this there were two posts asking what what kind of shoes or what bag to get. Socks were the next logical step. I thought about asking what kind of underwear to get. Then I remembered I was on flightinfo, and somebody would probably get their panties in a twist.

I thought the attached picture of the argyle socks would be evidence of me being "lightened up". :0

You might try exchanging them for a clean pair each day, which by definition means you might also try washing them. :D

Don't tell us you smell your underwear too!? I bet you actually look at your boogers before you wipe them on the yoke, too!

Why waste a good booger on the yoke. Yummy! Beats flat pretzels and peanut butter granola bars!

Not true, only UPS pilots are allowed to use those.

That being said i'd love to wear those socks.

Go commando! That way when you bend over to check the brake wear pins, you can flash your plumbers butt to the chick in the plane at gate B68.

It depends, do you wear shoes with Velcro fasteners?

I wear silk boxers...they breath easy and allow me to walk around with a semi-stiffy all day long. They have an easy escape hatch in the front...none of that folded over cloth stuff of briefs.
