    I have the exact socks (just arrived 3 days ago) and wore them with brown cordovans and felt that there wasn't enough contrast between the brown shoes and brown socks. I wore mine with dark blue pants. Did you or anyone else feel the same? The only other shoes I could think of wearing them with is black?? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I like them with the JL Museum - picks up the shading, but I see what you mean. Blue pants will work and I'd think any color that you'd pair your brown shoes with. I don't think that contrast is a requirement.
    Maybe @muddy250 , @Cleav , @grc1, @upr_crust , @Jazzmenco , and @Betelgeuse will weigh in with some insights. (Sorry if I left anyone out!)

    I don’t think contrast is a requirement either? Kinda depends on mood
    I’d wear those with tan or my cherry Moore’s.

    I think Cleav quietly chimed in his approval...
