Since we're talking about uniform changes, I was wondering how much support there would be for the Sox to wear actual white socks instead of the black ones.

White sanitaries with black stirrups, no question.

They should have done it after 2005. It just would have made too much sense.

Just out of curiosity, don't the Red Sox wear red socks? :scratch:

Wearing white socks when the team is named the White Sox makes too much sense.

Stirups? Yes, bring them back. Nuff said...

I wish the organization made the players wear stir-ups or at least the fake ones

I wish the MLB was as strict with their uniforms as the NFL is. Sometimes the guys dress so different they don't even like a team...

I'd keep the black stirrups but add like white stripes to them like they had in '59 though minus the red stripe.

White stirrups with black and silver stripes.

Technically, not EVERYONE did. Oakland wore (and still wears) gold sanis and even the White Sox wore blue sanitaries back in 1970 I think.

We should really raise our stirrup quota 'round here. Is Pierre the only one right now?

What's a stirrup?! :tongue:

Since the majority of players sport the baggy pants/flare bottoms look, :kukoo: I don't think we're going to see stirrups on a regular basis again for a long time.

I would love to see the SOX wear simple white socks/without stirrups, similar to the early century "Eight Men Out" uniforms. If the SOX ever decided to ditch their current uniforms, I would love to see the old-school big "S" uniforms with the white socks and black shoes. However, I doubt that will ever happen.

I absolutely support this. The reason they are called the White Sox is because during their inception, they actually wore White Sox.

The media and fans would identify teams by distinguishable differences in their uniforms. The White Sox were one of those teams......and I love the fact that this name has stuck throughout the years.

Facebook page for the support of the White Sox going back to actual completely white sox anyone? I'd "like" it.:)

Amen and amen--the baggy pant/cuffs below the ankle look is horrible. Unfortunately, we have to blame one of our very own for being a major engine behind this disastrous fashion faux pas--the Big Hurt.

I could not image the Big Hurt wearing those high/single thread stirrups from the early 80s. Mark Prior looked like he was wearing pantyhose when he wore the blue Cubs socks (not sure if they were stirrups) and the Hurt had bigger legs than Prior. :o:

I agree with this as well....I wish someone in Sox management would REQUIRE that ALL players wear their uniform pants as John Rooney used to say "bloused at the knee with their socks up high"

I used to love it when entire teams like the Cleveland Indians in the early/mid 90's would wear their socks up high...

I love how Juan Pierre wears his uniform. He really looks like a ballplayer.

I'd support going to white socks, but most of the players wear baggy pants so I don't think it would make much of a difference. I couldn't tell you what color Manny Ramirez's shoes were much less his socks.

It was a much darker shade of blue than Cubbie blue, so technically that was the last time the White Sox wore white socks.

I take that back, during the Veeck era they wore white socks, but no stirrups.

http://www.dugout-memories.com/ws19681.jpg Looks pretty Cubbie blue to me.

Yeah, the Veeck floppy-collared pajamas had white socks, but not stirrups.

Perhaps an exception could be made for players hitting at least 40 HR in a season for the Sox. This would keep Konerko out of stirrups as well (should he choose to return).:redneck

I don't think they have to ditch their current uniforms to use white socks.
