    Ditch the red socks and walnut shoes. Everything else is fine.

    What are socks rules for formal occasions? Match with trousers?

    There are no rules. Will just look silly. But I don't like the "fun" socks look, so I'm biased. Also, I can almost guarantee that no one else will have walnut/tan colored shoes.

    Try a tongue insert or add an insole. If not, try a different size.

    If you have $200 to spare, Hanger Project has a nice saphir polish starter kit with wooden valet.

    okay, going to try this again because its time sensitive.

    I'm thinking about getting some Charles Tyrwhitt (spelling?) dress shirts/OCBD's. I like the look, and the specs sound right, the price looks good.

    Is this a wise buy? I'm a bit skeptical as i've not heard the name on here before.

    CT is about at the level of Brooks Brothers... nothing wrong with it at the right price.
