    Interesting... so grey suit, pink shirt and navy socks? what about a green shirt?

    If I had to pick one and only one sock color, I think it would be a medium-to-charcoal grey. My second choice would probably be navy too

    I've been doing this for a few years. It really simplifies things.

    It would be for me as I seem to spend an inordinate amount of my dressing time at the sock drawer.

    Me too, and I never get it quite right. I have come to the conclusion that navy goes better than whatever I come up with that day. GDL- Pink shirt yes, I don't have any green shirts. DP- Thanks... I think.

    Great practical idea in that I've got a draw of mismatched socks but life needs the variety of sobber and crazy socks.

    It was a compliment and I'm giving you a hard time,
    but I'd hate to see you limit your options.

    I would think black or charcoal would be a more-flexible color to settle on. I don't think I own any navy socks. I don't have anything to wear with them...

    I follow the blue sock only methodology. I do have other pairs, but on a daily basis it is easy to hit the sock draw and pull out the blue pair.

    No way. black or charcoal socks would look horrible with tan or brown pants but navy can still work. I can't say I'd like navy socks with olive though, and it wouldn't look good with some browns and tans.

    Still, why not just go with a variety of solid colors? It's really not that hard. My pants encompass most of the colors than men wear, from white to tan, to mocha, varying shades of grey and blue, charcoal and olive. I don' thave a huge collection of socks. I have brown, navy, charcoal, black and cream. They go with everything and a selection of solids is better than just going with navy all the time. It's really not difficult to figure out what goes with what.

    But the black socks would match all of iammatt's black suits, trousers and shoes ... right? [​IMG]

    Agree on black but totally disagree on grey. Grey socks look great with brown or tan pants

    He said charcoal, which is closer to black than even a medium grey. I'm wearing a pair of golden tan pants right now and I just don't think charcoal would look very good with them. I guess that's why I'm wearing a pair of brown socks :p
