You make my point... I'm in a "Style" forum and if I want to wear colorful or interesting socks, I'm accused of being "Eccentric." And that's my overall impression of these forums. The overwhelming message (by the ones who tend to speak with "authority") is that one should (mostly) dress in a sedate, dignified manner (albeit well-coordinated), and only wear the best constructed, longest-lasting garments...even if it means foresaking current style (Ex: RM Williams boots...great utility I'm sure,...but the design went out of style 20 years ago!). BTW-If it wasn't for us "eccentrics" the world would be a pretty dull place. Dennis Relax.
