Men’s fashion advice please?

Do your prefer to wear black socks or colourful (aka happy) socks with a suit?

All the men in my family only wear black socks to work (professional occupations) however I’m noticing more and more colourful socks.

Just wondering what your preference is?

Back in the days it was Argyle themed socks, today I have tons of black socks left over from my military days.

Hi,

Depends on the dress code I guess. If the occasion requires me to wear black shoes I would go for black socks.
Generally I like to be "boring" and go for simple solid colours instead of going crazy with patterns and colour combinations. It's just not for me.

I would never go so far as to say "black socks with a suit." What kind of suit is it? There are socks in charcoal, navy, etc.

You can go for a very staid look without going into crazy color.

I tend toward navy or mid-gray socks but bolder choices have definitely become fashionable. Colors, stripes, patterns, are generally acceptable unless you're in a very conservative environment. Just stay away from anything cartoonish, super radical, or very bold colors (no neon pink) imo.
