It might now show in a huge way after only 1 year- depending on how often you wear them.  I think the benefits of using shoe trees would be more noticeable after 3-5 years, but it would be a great experiment to learn from!

Does anyone know if RL "Narrow" ties actually come in at 3" exactly as the description states? They look slimmer in the pictures and RL descriptions are notoriously wrong.

Shoe trees left in your shoes until you need to use them, or do you guys take them off after a day? Search led me to the consensus being split.

I leave mine in all the time.  If I'm honest with myself, I suspect that's a bad thing (with sprung trees that is).

Always in unless worn. Heck, it would be more effort and thought to remove them. Maybe people without a 1:1 of shoe:tree do this as a compromise?

Brand new Church's.

If special ordered in US, will they be US sizing?

Also, are these Walnut?

I know lots of posters here and people in the more well dressed world pay a lot of attention in the look and feel of their socks, but right now I'm just looking for some value-for-money everyday socks to buy in bulk, where I won't have to worry about missing/mismatching socks. What are some popular brand choices in that regard?

 

And for color, if I had to pick one color only for all my socks, would black be more appropriate, or gray?

Dark blue socks.

There is no one appropriate color. You match your pants. It's not hard to buy several pairs in khaki, several pairs in gray, and several pairs in navy. You shouldn't need too many in black since you shouldn't be wearing black pants often.

As for brand, just go to your local department store and grab a few 5 packs of goldtoe or whatever in a few different colors.

I go to Marshalls/T.J. Maxx/wherever discount store and buy Polo ones. They seem to be the best quality/dollar since I get them for $2-3/pair.

Check out the "Rock Your Socks" thread for more inspiration before these people make you too boring.

 

I hear "Gold Toe" are decent quality too, although I don't actually know what they are.  I'd say be a little braver, and matching your socks to your trousers is extremely dull.  And if when you say "value" socks, you really mean "cheap", then think again.  Really nice socks are a serious quality of life upgrade.  Same with underpants!  Get some interesting over the calf socks from www.meschaussettesrouges.com to wear with your suit, and you'll realise you were only half dressed until now.

If I have tan shoes but only dark brown belts (for now, at least), would it be preferable to wear a belt or not with belt-looped pants?

Wear a belt. I understand your concern, but not wearing a belt is a much worse faux pas than not matching perfectly.

I imagine this has been asked before, but the search results were unpromising.

Is it okay to wear a backpack, a nice one? I travel a lot and have been having shoulder/neck pain, which I think is partly due to the heavy briefcase/portfolio bag I carry around.

Can one ever get away with a backpack in a business setting?

If you're looking for inexpensive ones, Jos A Bank usually has them on sale.  Looks like now they're $12.50  iirc I bought them before christmas for $8 a pop.
