    I like everything in the photo, I just don't like the combination.

    Those are such formal suit pants that they are begging for something a bit more subtle like a nice two color birdseye or pin dot. I would save such loud socks for something more casual like cords, khakis, chinos or jeans that would benefit from a jolt of color and pattern.

    If you really want the effect of a loud color sock and formal suit pants, go instead with a bright solid or bright non stripe pattern.

    I'm not a fan of this color combination. Black shoes against beige socks seem to be too high contrast. The beige socks should work with most light brown or tan shoes but it wouldn't be my first choice paired with a navy pant. .

    Thanks mcarthur! Do you have the username of him? I'm from Mexico so calling him will be a bit expensive. Hope he can give me an advice, I think there might a fix, but it will require some artistic hands and talent to re-paint that part.
