I would say it is better for socks to be lighter rather than darker than the trousers. But I do think the socks are TOO light in this case.

Bah, I have the picture framed so I don't crop (the tripod is probably placed within centimeters of each previous position). Perhaps I should pull the camera back so the masses can behold my awesome sock collection (solid browns, navies, tans and blacks).

But if it makes the masses feel better, I went home and changed into the walnut cliftons before going to dinner. It was looking like rain and I've not put rubber on the boots yet...probably just an excuse to cave under the sheet weight of dead horse beatings.

I'm 100% with the no-boot club. Partially because I don't like boots and mostly because it didn't make sense. Good switch.

I usually like it as well, but I think for CBD and general consistency it looks better if the socks are darker than the pants.  Otherwise it causes a break between the shoes and the pants.  It can draw too much attention to the socks.

Referring to CM?  If so, that was one of my first impressions of this fit. 

The simple white linen square and light grey socks cool this look down so much and give it a more interesting character than with blue socks.  I would have gone with navy and a stronger rendering of cordovan on the shoe and that would have been predictable and boring. 

To me the irony of this fit is that elements of a more formal fit - subdued palette, white square - are rendered casual by the tie and cooled-out line of light blue shirt, light grey trousers, and light grey socks. 

One splash of color and textural contrast from the tie nail it together.  Summer fit.

No to the first, yes to the second. I am actually pretty happy with my shoe collection. I'd maybe get some brown cordovan oxfords at some point, but I think that's it. I really am not a shoe person, thank god. It's the least interesting part of the outfit for me. I guess I'm opposite of stitches.

well, fine, dont buy more, but you NEED to show them in your pics. imo bad shoes can ruin an otherwise great fit, and great shoes can make a great fit even better. they are a major part of the whole fit to me.

I don't think Clag has feet. It's all a ruse. 

 

He's got two wooden pegs. They're bespoke pegs, probably. Hand crafted.

Re: Clags and Stitch

 

I would much rather see the jacket/tie/collar/PS up closer and in more detail than a dirty muddy old pair of shoes besides, quite a few american guys on here seem to just roll their trousers up and not hem, or make them too short with no break, and then go on to commit the ulitmate sin of not wearing socks, so what would one actually be looking at anyway? In my opinion put the shoe part in it's own little pic that one doesn't have to look at..
