I sadly cannot participate of my own free will since my fiance chooses many of my socks. Which means, the socks inevitably have angry robots (pictured), beer mugs or the like.

Admittedly they do catch attention at work, but have cemented my reputation (for better or for worse) as the "executive with the funny socks."

Ah. Super freaky socks.

Yeah, Pantherella. Love 'em (and the shoes, too — the 337 last fits perfect, it seems).

I purchased some argyle socks today. Please rate my purchases:

Photo%20Sep%2018%2C%208%2006%2056%20PM.jpg

Background:
- 22-yo male
- First job/slowly building my wardrobe
- Business casual office environment
- One pair of dark brown Allen Edmonds (I wear these pretty much everyday)

How does one match socks to his outfit? I know the basic rule of thumb is to match the color of your socks with your pants, but my go-to color for pants is charcoal gray and I'm on the prowl for some dark brown ones. I almost never wear black because I don't like to wear black shoes.

For example, can I wear the dark brown/orange argyle socks (third from left) with gray pants and dark brown shoes? I'm kind of inclined to wear w/e the F socks I want with my shoes/pants because it doesn't seem like people in this thread are following a single convention..

And please ignore the brand of the socks. I'm sure that this being styleforum, my socks are plebe status. I do not feel comfortable (yet?) spending more than $20 on a pair of socks.

^ not sure whom I am stealing this quote from, but I have read that a businessman wears socks that match his pants while a gentleman wears socks that match his mood.... Sage advice. When you consider it. Try and wear things that are pleasing to your eye and odds are others may tend to agree... smile.gif

Note: meant for greenfrog....

Cool. That's exactly what I wanted to hear. While most sartorial rules make sense, I feel like socks are so versatile that by forcing yourself to follow the rules impedes on personal taste and expression.

It might be the angle but these look huge on your feet. What are they?
