    I don't think there is a guideline to success in this thread. It is more about just what you are wearing. It is more of an art than a science. There are socks that are totally unrelated to both shoes and trou that look horrible and socks that are unrealted to both shoes and trou that look great. I guess just complimentary pairings. Also, I would note that style of trouser, sock, shoe is just as important for the combo to look good as colors are.

    People who lack style are always assessing & looking for a formula to acquire or emulate it.

    People with style throw things together & make them work instinctively.

    I think what you mean by complimentary is what I mean by coordinate. And both terms are vague enough both to avoid the derogatory labels of "science" and "rules" and to encompass the less-noted aspects of coordination you mention.

    And if you think this is amazing wait until you see what we did for Stitchy's shoe closet!!!!!!

    The water feature alone cost over a million. And that was without the fiber optic lighting.
