    And if I had a buck for every time someone complained about it, we might have around the same amount of coin in our pockets.

    Shady - great shoes, but I hope you come into this thread with an open mind. The ability to be open to new knowledge is closely correlated with intelligence, and if you want to develop your style here you'll do well to learn from what you will find in the last several pages of this thread (and whnay's good taste thread, the 20+ composite thread, etc).

    Menswear's rules and traditions were developed for good reasons, subtle though they may be. Wearing those shoes without socks breaks the rules in a way you may regret in a year when you cannot wear them any more due to the odor or mold that could develop in them. It would be a shame to waste a great pair of shoes like that. And for the record, I do wear loafers without shoes on a fairly regular basis, but only because I have a good rotation and a care routine to forestall their retirement.

    Best of luck, I hope you enjoy the learning process here. It can be a harsh one if you approach it with the wrong attitude.

    It's not that "dressed up" actually, more of a smart casual look i guess, i definitely agree, socks should be put on with formal look. thanks for the suggestion

    Noodles, Stitchy's doing Holdfast, not me! You can tell by the placement of the feet, and the lean against the chair. (Nice bookcases, BTW, Stitchy.)

    The black bar across the eyes was also a dead giveaway.

    Some might prefer blue, but white absolutely goes with everything. It is as neutral as neutral gets.

    And it most definitely goes with pink.

    White shirt goes with everything. Is it optimal for every situation? No.

    Yes.

    I think the choice of white or blue is often a matter of desired formality: white if one wants to dress up, blue if one wants to dress down.

    Contrast with the tie can be an issue too, in a few cases. A pale yellow tie will often show better against pale blue than against white.

    Not that anyone here would ever own a yellow tie, of course. I’m speaking in the abstract …

    Cheers,

    Ac
