Heartily second the Pantherella from Sierra Trading Post recommendation. Almost all of my socks for business wear are from there. Stick to the wool ones.
Helpful. Thanks! Western wear? I never noticed that.
Nothing huh? I tried Google, and found some discussion to the effect that besom pockets could be seen as a throwback to 80s style (specifically, an Italian fashion-forward detail). Anything in that?
I am thinking of having a suit made with just besom pockets (and probably keep them sewn), apart from the breast pocket of course. I think I may like the look better, and like to think it adds just a little more slimness. Normally, I get flap pockets, and want to tuck the flap. But then the pocket sags a bit and with the flap tucked it shows. Any input on the pros and cons of besom pockets only? Does anyone do this, or am I nuts?

I'd get some cheap disposable bics or a double bladed Gillette Sensor Excel if they still make em. +1 on the twin bladed Sensor Excel. Best razor ever made in my opinion. Tough to find these days though.

Yay Anne Hathaway!
Perhaps leather shoes would avoid the problem:
