It is true that I have been overdoing the sock focus this past week or so, but then I have found happiness in a couple of new styles. The Marcoliani cotton argyles in the photo, for example, are much better quality than other lightweight argyles I have tried in the past. Indeed, they are better quality than the Marcoliani merino argyles, which have a disturbing tendency to come unwoven at the boundaries between colors.
Argyles of course are patterns reminiscent of Scottish tartans that are worn casually. Perfect with odd jackets, most men do not consider them appropriate with suits.
These are worn with tan gabardine trousers. a shirt jacket and an old pair of slip-ons that C&J made for Brooks Brothers about twenty years ago.
