    Hey guys, all these new people asking odd questions about what they should wear with what has inspired me. I've long wanted to pull off this look but wasn't sure how:

    Now I know I shouldn't wear black socks in the daytime because it's not business appropriate but other than that I have no idea. Should I go with something conservative like AmTrad argyle socks (undarted obviously) or should I go a little fashion forward? Plain or patterned?

    Also, what shoes would you wear? Would you go with a sport coat? Belt or suspenders?

    Kent, do you have pocket squares you can match with socks?

    I don't wear tube socks but if I did I'd probably choose cashmere.

    I might be able to do that if I could get my hands on a pair of these, as long as they had a lot of stretch.

    Bulchers or bals? Or should I go with a more urban look?
