JR, your shoe game is great...looks like you're replacing all your AEs with carminas. But really, let your shoes and not socks do the talking. (Since Rudal's just got married): it's like the bridesmaid trying to outshine the bride and doing so badly.
I prefer a sedate gray small herringbone if you want a pattern, but navy, gray, brown in a somber saturation/brightness would be perfect.
