Anyone have any no-show socks they recommend for loafers?

I like Uniqlo's no-show socks, although I tend to only wear them with sneakers.

 

They're very comfortable, durable yet thin, and they have a little rubbery-grip on the inside at the heel so that they don't slip off easily.

^^ Brooks Brothers makes the best ones I have.  I tend to destroy no-show socks really easily and the one's from BB have held up best.

I had a guy a few months ago recognize what I was wearing as bespoke and proceeded to talk about all his stuff was also bespoke and from this awesome company called Tom James. His suit was not nice looking. I had a really, really hard time hiding my reaction. I suspect I failed at this. It's far easier to appear good natured when y'all can't see my facial expression. :embar:

I now assume you're always making the facial expression in the artistic rendering of yourself in your avatar... looking down your nose at everyone. Dick.

Taking meetings can be entertaining, though. I'm always upfront that I'll meet them but have no intention of purchasing unless they convince me they can provide better value / service than what I current;y have.

It's easy enough to find something good to say, though. Unless it's truly terrible. Then you just smile, nod and excuse yourself to freshen your drink (being able to quickly down booze helps with this).

My wife recently took up drawing again (after 6-7 years) due to my grandmother (who gifted her with some high quality art supplies). She drew that. Also Mark Twain:



Her first internship (PR) had her occasionally illustrating brochures like this:



I'm trying to get her into drawing clothes. Because that would be awesome if she got good at it.

To the TJ customer in my office:  I really like those bright blue contrasting color working button holes on the sleeves of your charcoal pinstripe suit.  You really splurged on that one, Mr. Big Time.

I had a visit many years ago when I was an associate at a large law firm. Seller was a middle-aged woman who tried to convince me to buy an entire wardrobe on the spot. I agreed to buy a blazer to try them out. She acted like I was wasting her time and left.

I'm planning to take a year and a half off of having a job (and buying clothes) and work on making art in the hopes of finding studio work. These are a couple of mine from a Long time ago...

 

 

...and some more "entertainmenty" stuff, starting to get in to recent digital painting...
