    I'm new to this forum, and working on being a little more fashionable.
    I have a friend who's brother-in-law started a dress sock company that seems to be doing pretty damn well, and all of his socks are very colorful. I should also mention, living in Los Angeles, I've been seeing an abundance of well-dressed men wearing colorful and vibrant socks. Would you guys say the socks are an important part of the outfit?
    Just wondering how you guys felt about this and if some of you could share your 2 cents, it would be helpful!

    Depends on where you are. On the west coast, loud socks are a thing, and an important component where jeans and tee shirts are a common outfit for work.

    The east coast is more conservative, and you have to proceed with caution when you're wearing more formal attire. If you're in a casual workplace, fun socks would be fine.

    I would say if your truly trying to dress well, then every part of your wardrobe is important.


    Pay attention to everything, it's all in the details.
