Since you're an intern, you should be focussed on trying to fit in as a professional-in-training, not stretching the limits of the dress code. So don't wear fun socks. The guys who look good in fun socks on this forum are...

I do actually intend to buy... but from the online store in the U.S., where the clothes will still cost less with shipping than buying directly from the Japanese storefront....
This list of essentials is a good place to start if you're having trouble figuring out what's necessary.
Hello SF, My shoes were caught in a storm. When I got home I filled them with tissue paper and let them sit out to dry. The next day I noticed a crack in the sole (which is already pretty thin). What can I do? Does this mean I should resole them? These are Allen Edmonds Cliftons and it's not the first time they've been caught in the rain (maybe 3 times before). I bought them lightly used about a year ago. Thanks Sincerely

Sometimes this happens in the thread title, sometimes it...
Quote: which is essentially a parasitic denial of capitalism as constituting socio-economic relations, while blah blah blah blah blah Cool words bro. I live in Osaka and am not the greatest style watcher, but dandyism is alive and well here. I don't have much to say about this subject, but the best writer I know about contemporary men's style in Japan is David W. Marx (or Marxxy), who for example recently wrote a eulogy for a tailor named Namiki...

Thanks to you all for the same answer. Does this affect the way selvedge denim changes with time? Should I expect them to grow longer or shorter, later?
