    No, I meant me. I finally pulled the trigger on the green Bontoni monkstraps I was watching on ebay. I need another pair of shoes like I need a hole in my head but it is not a matter of needing is it?

    :D

    Very nice, I'm starting to like your inclination to wear lighter socks than the pants, I think it would look even better with the shoes less matte, more polished ala upr_crust

    I don't have the gumption, but the gentlemen at my local shoe repair shop have not only the gumption, but excellent technique in these matters, and for a small fee, they shine my shoes exceedingly well.

    Indeed,

    English is not my first language so I had to google the word gumption so I learned something today :) , I do take one day a week to shine at least the couple of pairs most in need.

    That is a good point, crusty. And one of the advantages of living in a city like New York. I wish there was someone locally that I could trust to properly polish my shoes.

    Rikod - Glad you enjoyed the new word. :)

    Incotex light grey flannels

    It is harder than I thought to find socks with a small amount of light grey in the pattern. It is surprisingly limited.
