    Dang looking boss there Span!
    I see that you cuffs are showing just a wee bit. I prefer more cuffs showing...which is why I need to go back to my tailor again.

    Was on my way out of my house only to realize that I had no dress socks left...

    You've finally got an excuse to go sockless and what do you do? Wear white sports socks... [​IMG]

    1. The correct solution is to buy some. Please do so in your lunch break at least.

    2. I am concerned about your shoe choice.

    3. Please ignore the siren voice in the previous post, that would lead you to irredeemable infamy.

    Nice socks, bro. When do you graduate high school?

    This GQ magazine that I read on the train said that white socks are coming back!

    Ugh...I really love Hober grenadines and that striped one would have been a great addition.
    GQ...how come they never send me a copy of their mag?

    I don't get the universal praise for that striped grenadine, particularly as recommendation for Noodles' somewhat limited collection of ties.

    I don't think white socks are that bad by default. The color goes fine with black shoes and blue trousers/suit. If your pieces are good quality and fits well I think the connotations would not mean as much. imo anyway.
