I don’t even really know if this a Fashion faux pas. I just know that every time I wear bright new white socks with dark colored pants I get that fact pointed out to me in a manner that sounds like what I’m doing is an affront to everything good. Really though… Unless you’re literally killing people with your fashion (like some people make it seem) who really cares. Unless it’s spandex… in the immortal words of Cereal Killer from Hackers “Spandex is a privilege not a right.”
Not much to say today… banged out the rest of this weeks comics so I can focus on some treats!
Like always, you guys can follow me on Twitter @IamARG or check out my deviantart or you can Join the I am ARG Facebook page. I post updates and other things there like questions and surprise announcements.
THE HORROR! MY EYES!
Love the expression
Lol yeah had fun drawing that one.
Well this doesn’t quite fall under the “intelligent humor” category that I love but I still laughed hard! I’m one of those guys who knows all of the fashion faux pas so I try not to do them but I dont care if someone else does. Damn hipsters care too much. You should let your gf do a comic again, this place could stand to be a little smarter 😛
I’m like, eight and a half, have horrible grammar, and what is this?
What is this I don’t even.
heh, 5 comics a week, not every one is gonna be a winner for everybody all the time. I appreciated the fact that You at least laughed hard. Thanks for that and I’m sure my Girlfriend is gonna love that comment. lol. cheers dude.
I understand this perfectly as I have a tendency to do the same thing. Not the melting-a-hipster-with-socks-of-doom thing, but certainly the wearing of white socks with dark pants. And I was going to mention a favourite comic but I can’t decide.
no worries I’ll just assume Every comic is your favorite and be happy that I finally pleased someone.
huh. you know, I’ve never ever thought about this in particular before, but now that you mention it…
I usually do alternating shades between pants and socks and shoes – light shoes, dark socks, light pants – I like how it breaks your body up into separate segments, instead of sort of blending everything down to one colour/tone. same thing with shirts – dark pants, light shirt (or, you know, black pants, non-black shirt, is how it mostly turns out.)
I get ya, planning some outfits out and stuff that’s cool. I tend to be a t-shirt and jeans guy. dress shirts for work. sweatshirts for the winter…
Funny that, here in Türkiye, it is believed only rednecks wear white socks with dark pants and even they stoped doing that. Seriously, it would destroy your social status right away. I wasnt aware that cultural stigma exists in USA too.
if you ever met me you’d probably think I was a redneck…
Gives the serial killers a fun abstract as to where to chop your body up.
I’ll point that out to all my serial killing friends. lol
I think every comic you’ve drawn with coffee in it has it dripping down the sides.
he explained i one of his earlier comics that the coffee he buys is pretty good but always drips down the sides.
yeah, I’m trying to put in little things like this as easter eggs.
reminds me of when my ambiguously gay, ambiguously asian band teacher told me and my friend to “never wear a grey shirt and khaki shorts together ever again.” We both made an effort to wear that combination a lot.
Ah yes… I had a music teacher that hated when we played oye como va. when it came time to play our music selection, oye como va it was. she was livid… she was also pretty hot too…
What? How could someone hate One of Tito’s classics?
Dude, i love they way you drew the melting guy. The drippiness is done just right.
thanks! tons of fun to draw that one…
F*ck fashion put on your most compfy cloths and burn eyes of people who care evrywhere!
I personally believe that white socks are “fresh”, I feel cleaner with white socks… And I really dont care that much about socks anyway. They’re just socks…
SOOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCCCKKKKKSSSSSSSssssssssssss……. that is a funny word.
Ahahahahahahahah… heheh… aheehee… hoo… Fashion. I only own one pair of socks that aren’t white and only a few pairs of pants that aren’t black.
yeah… who do they think we are? Fashionistas?
ok. I need to ask by now… does ‘anyone’ actually call you Arg?
Yep. Several people.
I called him “hey you” but he got older and had it legally changed.
It was kinda weird, for the first 3 years I thought I was an adopted Asian child. Then the real tragedy came when I find out that I came from your gene pool.
Arg Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ankle.
This reminds me of a time when I wore a white cotton skirt, and when I went to the flower shop, local people asked me if I was cold (I was wearing stockings .__. ), and pointed out that it was a summer skirt. If I’m not freezing my ass off, or if I’m not uncomfortable, I will wear whatever the hell I want. Fuck fashion. Thank you.
why is the area around your face glowing?
*Cheers for the “Hackers” reference*
Do you ever want to say, “No, no, no, thank you!” to people too? (from the scene where Freak tricks the payphone, if you don’t remember)
OMG Thank you for showing me this band! Haggis and Bong, so epic! I’m Scotch/Irish and it just runs through my bloooooooood.
