    I have a very good friend who is, by all accounts - first, second and third person - a top tier casual vomiter. It really is a spectacle to behold.

    The ability to vomit at will is a useful skill in the business world. On par with proficiency in Microsoft Office.

    Also, they say size doesn't matter. They are wrong.

    For me, it's a question of the sort of person involved.

    Tie - PS matching is an everyman faux pas. Sock - tie matching is a special kind of precious.

    Like I said, I'd go sockless before doing either.

    Yea. I'm on the fringe with my sockbeliefs.

    My sock game begins and ends with navy pindot.

    But I think this is one area that distinctly rewards a lack of imagination.

    Love it.
    I have two I think are good, for suits at least: 1) Socks are the what t should least be noticed. 2) Socks that match pants elongate the line.

    These two things only apply for suits imo. That's the only time I match socks w/ pants at least.

    I've never understood this.

    Unless you're full on #menswear (in which case, you have bigger problems), no one can see your socks unless the mythical line is already broker up by your leg being bent, because you're sitting down.

    I wore burgundy socks with tan corduroy trousers today. Hope I don't deserve sartorial death. [​IMG]
