Ah. Mars-Venus thing, as my wife would say. Most guys feel “matching sox” mean they match each other, never mind anything else being worn. Also, if they’re the same color, they match. And to the standard male fashion filter, magenta, burnt orange, pale red (“That’s pink.” “No, it used to be red, there was a bleach issue. It’s pale red”) are all “red” for matching. This is why I take women friends along when I clothes shop (most of them are delighted, btw; one compared it to “picking an outfit for a big bald Ken doll,” which was meant as a compliment… I’m pretty sure).

Anyway, my point (ummm… wait, got it) is that you could be worse, fashion-wise. Just sayin’.
