I have cotton red socks, along with plum, teal, blue, and yellow.

I wear all of the above anytime I feel the colors are appropriate.

I wear them with odd jackets, blazers, and other casual clothing, never with suits.

Not yet but I like some of the suedehead looks of the late sixties - early seventies. Thick rimmed brogues with red socks and two tone or sta press strides was a staple. Been meaning to get some for a while. Do Gold Toe make them?

I had a great pair of red Pantherella cashmere blend socks. They gave me quite a bit of wear, but they are now in the sock graveyard. I have yet to replace them.

Tomorrow, I will wear scarlet OTC cotton socks from Viccel with a pearl gray Polo sb suit (3 button with side vents and ticket pocket), a Polo linen tie (red circles on a blue background), a medium blue Jantzen fc shirt, red on red Trafalgar silk suspenders, a silk handkerchief (red squares on a blue background), scarlet silk knots, and a pair of Loake Pimlico chukkas in dark brown (rain is in the forecast but it will be a lovely 72F).

Some burgundy, and a pair of burnt orange. I like them with charcoal suits.

I wear dark red socks with navy polka dots for fun with a suit. Always gets compliments from ladies. Always.

I've seen it pulled off around the office. Charcoal suit with red socks and a pair of gorgeous dark brown loafers. Great look.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
