What color socks would be most appropriate for jeans, especially when wearing either a casual loafer or a sneaker-type shoe? Also, any recommendations would be accepted

Sportsman's Guide is good shyte.I have some black cashmere socks that were on sale from somewhere near $50 and they have held up well even through the washer and dryer. I am totally careless with socks. I have some grey socks I sometimes use with jeans but the ones I use most often are army surplus boot socks, above the calf style, black wool/nylon/cotton blend. They were about $7/3pair or something ridiculous and they have held up great, don't fade much at all, are very comfortable (light padding on bottom) and keep your feet dry and happy. They breathe unlike cotton socks that soak up moisture and clam up your feet. They look fine with most shoes except light colored ones. And work well with boots, obviously. Check Sportsmens Guidefor them if you are interested.
conversely, in some parts of the U.S., wearing anything other than white athletic socks with jeans would tag you as a geek or as . . . a European tourist ÂAnyone over the age of 12, wearing white athletic socks with jeans, would be immediately identified as a person with not too much taste or as... an american tourist ÂJust kidding, no offense meant, I think there is a certain freedom of choice regarding the colour, as long as it is a dark tone.
