    I've also been wearing the Nagrani socks. Pantherella and Marcoliani make great light weight wools and cottons, but $30 for a pair of socks is steep. I try to buy basic Pantherella cottons at STP when there's a sale. Sometimes STP has other good brands as well.

    This is like stepping back in time and running into myself.

    Yeah, I think Pantherella cotton can be pretty nice for summer, but the elastic is not great--a place where Nagrani shines, although they are a little thicker, so not best for the hottest days. The Richard James socks are nice for summer, too. Great colors.

    I now invite you to come to the WAYRN thread to start lobbing grenades.

    I'd wear all those pieces except the tie, jacket, shoes and pocket square.


    I wear cotton and wool blend socks in shades of brown and grey, with the occasional navy thrown in, 365 days a year. No patterns, no loud colors, and nothing that is see through.

    These shoes would have killed:

    and mack sold you a great sportcoat. I was just too slight for it, but I knew it was going to look awesome.

    As to the socks - I think sockless is a great next-best option. What matches light gray better than springtime white-boy ankles? I have light gray Polo made in Japan that would probably work too.

    Well, here's the thing: there are fake penny loafers and there are real ones. The fake ones are always more sophisticated, but unless they are made as mocs, they are still fake.

    I have the Polo Marlow/Darlton pennies in C&J's brown shell, and I would say they are the best fake pennies there are.

    You callin' me out as an SF whore? If so: guilty on this count.

    Thank you. It's not the first time I've been called a real man but it is still flattering nonetheless.
