I'm a 10.5 US, which pairs do you guys get? Looks like some has some bad reviews with slippage.


The Vans no show socks have gel pads attached to the heals to prevent slippage. Just saying.

 

As for cuff links, another vote for Kent Wang. I have his mother of pearl links and they are absolutely beautiful and at a steal of a price.

So do the J Crew ones.

If you could only have one pair of cuff links, which would it be? (I only have one FC shirt, and the pair I have now aren't cutting it)

 

I don't have a huge cufflink collection, despite the fact that I nearly always wear FC shirts, but I wear KW sterling knots 90% of the time.

Anyone here wear invisible socks with their loafers?

 

Can anyone recommend a brand, if you know any Canadian companies that's a plus.

 

If not i'll go with christian kimbers.

 

Thanks guys,

Jason

 

 

I don't wear invisible socks with loafers, but I do with my sneakers when I'm wearing shorts.

 

I've found Uniqlo to make really good, and also really cheap, invisible socks.

 

They have little, gel-like strips at the inside of the heel that grip the area around the bottom of your Achilles tendon and stop them from slipping off.

Kent Wang sells them at shockingly affordable prices.

 

Of course, not sure why I didn't think to look there. Both the knots and barbells look great.

Available in sterling from Brooks Brothers.

 

I'll check out BB as well, thanks for the recommendation.

NMWA started carrying invisible socks that work well. Tommy Johns also work well but sometimes not as invisible as I would like depending on the shoe.

If you have the money, by all means shell out $35 on a pair of socks.

Is this any different than a $130 Vanda tie?

 

(or a $2,000+ B&T suit for that matter)

I'm not sure what you do with your suits and ties, but I don't tend to soak them with sweat, abrade them for the entire time they're in use, or stand on them. Put another way, socks are consumables in a way that suits and ties are not. Honestly though, we're talking about helping someone find footie socks...

^ I agree.

Invest in your suits, shoes, ties, shirts. But go to Target for your boxers, undershirts, and socks.

And I suggested JCrew...

I mean how about expensive shirts? Or shoes? Surely you don't sweat, dirty, or (for shoes) stand on those. . .

Noodles vs NMWA is not a can of worms that needs to be revisited.

 

Noodles, yes, point made that those are exceptionally pricey socks.  But you are on the verge of being a dick again.  Step back.

 

Say something funny about your wife and post a suit pic.  Those things make people like you.

 

Also, I still like you.

I'm not an expensive shirt guy. If it fits, and the cloth is decent, that's enough for me. Shoes are a totally different story, since foot health is something you need to maintain for your entire life. I'm getting ready to ditch all my RTW shoes for bespoke after dealing the issue from shitty fit. As I intimated, footie socks (which my 3 year old daughter wears and manages to pick out) aren't worthy of the time we've all already spent on them. foo.gif

See, but you're actually a logical argument here. Noodles just brought up the price,as if that was reason enough (which is an argument, especially on SF, that doesn't really work), which is why I responded.
