I read an interview with Peter O’Toole a few years ago about his fascination with green socks. At the time I read the article, we had a friend of the family (slight older gentlemen) who always wore yellow socks, it was his “thing”. Around that time, I was transitioning from the military to a civilian career, and decided green socks would be my thing. I set about replacing all my black and navy socks with various shades of green. The green boot socks in my “thick” sock drawer seem to pay homage to my military career.This subject touched a serious nerve so we're now discussing socks, which everyone seems to agree on.
Just arranged for a visit to Hemrajani next week. Will focus on fall/winter weight casual shirts and maybe some linens for summer. Any suggestions for colors? I'm pretty well covered with blues and reds for fall/winter. A green check is on my agenda but other suggestions would be welcome.
Did a little digging around on Permanent Style and I think I've settled on some of the following:For winter: plaid cotton/cashmere blends are excellent. Great layer or slightly thick enough to be an over shirt when it’s not too cold. A good thick wool glen plaid shirt is a staple as well. I’ll miss being able to get those at Brooks.
For summer: I picked up several of the Japanese linen shirts from Drake’s this last summer and loved them. Yellow, orange, and pink. All bright but not neon highlighter-bright. The colors worked great for the summer.

Me disparaging the new lookbook. Comments back weren't as vicious as the last look book but Derek's were mostly aimed at me followed by lots of Drake's pics.Link?
Socks, socks, and socks. No other topics or free association, just socks, socks, sex, socks, and socks. Wait, oops...This subject touched a serious nerve so we're now discussing socks, which everyone seems to agree on.
