I've been searching on SF and across the internet but I can't seem to find consensus, even on SF, on how sock colors should be matched. I found that there seem to be three schools of thought but I'm not really sure which, if any, is more appropriate and accepted. 1) Match it to the pants so that it extends your leg and highlights the outline of the shoe 2) match it to the shoe 3) wear a funky color/match it with some other color besides the pant or shoe (the more funky route) I would only use 1 or 2 since I lack the fashion acumen to not screw up 3. In a business/formal environment, which one should I follow? In a casual environment (jeans, chinos)?
