The shoes look like crap, first and foremost.

I'll try. The shine is fine, the shoes... see above. Other than that, I don't think you should wear funny socks with what seem like worsted office pants, and black shoes. I personally think you should never wear funny socks, but if you do, you have to make sure they get the right surroundings, if you know what I mean: more casual shoes, more casual trousers, and probably both in summer versions.

that's fair on all accounts.

as far as the shoes - are they trash? need cleaned up? they are older AE Hillcrest so they're not complete trash - maybe just close? shog[1].gif

another reason for the socks today (and today only)....i'm going to be the mystery reader in my son's 2nd grade class - thought the little kids might get a kick out of them. probably should think twice next time. smile.gif

Perhaps I came on a bit strongly last time. The shoes are well-made and will last you a long while. They also don't seem to be in need of cleaning. However, the Hillcrest is not one of AE-s nicer models - with the pants a pair of walnut strands would have looked fantastic.

I rock the funny sock a lot. If you are going to do it, make it bold - choose a color that is completely contrasting with your pants. The purple stripes on your socks are too close in tone to your pants to really give the kick that you want a pair of coloured socks to give.

I don't know about the quality, but I don't find the model attractive—they look a bit old-mannish, if you don't mind me saying. They seem to be in good condition.

Well, if the kids like them, forget everything I've said. smile.gif

i appreciate your frankness. i'm here to get better and appreciate any constructive criticism you guys can give. I really hate these shoes, to be honest. they are my first AEs and have become my beat around shoes (especially if raining - which it was this morning).

I'll work on my socks a bit and try to review the thread to see what works or doesn't. Any i might have to put these dogs on the bay for .99 and send them off.

have a good one guys.

Problem solved smile.gif. I think OP pocketsquareguy is the king of this thread. Unfortunately, some of his pics are gone, but I'd check his combinations and comments. There are plenty of other good posters, of course, but I think PSG is the rightful "owner" of the thread. Good luck!
