    Depends on the monks for me. Some are dressy enough for suits in my opinion. (G&G oakham for instance.)

    I'm the same with bluchers. Some, such as G&G Uppingham are dressy enough for suits (even if technically improper.)

    I tend to look at the overall effect of the shoe.

    Although - for presentations, meeting new clients, or anytime I feel a need to be proper I take no chances and go for the laceup oxfords/bals without fail. They may not always be black, but no monks or bluchers.

    Better for me. I really would like some pindots, or a texture with striped trou.

    pin dots for striped trousers sounds pretty terrible to me, tbh.

    Well, that's what a thought.

    Here in the 'new world' I believe it is generally considered to be less than correct to wear plain solid color socks with suits. Which leaves subtle patterns such as pin dots, herringbones, checks, houndstooth, etc. etc. as the options.

    horses for courses..................
